Antique Store POS Software
Better Antique Store POS Software
One of the more interesting type of specialty stores is the Antique shop. In the antiquities business, money is made from buying and selling antiques for a profit. Product cost and prices can range greatly considering the age, condition, rarity, and collectability of an item. Antique businesses can range in size from very small storefronts to large warehouse type buildings with thousands of items. Some antique businesses do not have a store front at all and conduct the majority of their sales online.
A point of sale for an antique store, ideally should have inventory and tracking capabilities to help manage the businesses inventory. Antique Store POS software should also be able to track item cost and sales history, to ensure a profit is being made from each item sold.
RetailPoint POS has all these capabilities and much more, which makes it an ideal point of sale solution for antique stores. With RetailPoint, items can quickly be put into inventory.
