We know SalesVu to be one of the most perfect cloud-oriented POS systems in the market. It’s feature-rich, packed with the almost every necessity that a POS requires. From what I’ve seen, SalesVu understands cloud much better than most other local apps. You can track, change, tweak, send auto-emailers, etc. There’s a flat percentage fee like PayPal Here and Square.

Price: 2.7% per transaction

#2. Square Point

Square Point is one of the best and widely-used payment apps. Over the years, it has turned to be an enormously feature-rich product with almost everything accounted for. Still, the interface is simple, focused and seamless. While the iPhone version comes with a set of features, the iPad has even more (printing options, in-app reporting, etc.). The app is free, and so is the card reader.

Price: 2.75% per transaction or $275/mo (for $0.00 transaction fee)

#3. GoPayment from Intuit

GoPayment is pretty much similar to Square. Even the pricing is similar (almost). Intuit needs no introduction. They’ve been producing some amazing software for quite a long time. GoPayment is one of their recent entrants. The app is free like Square, and there’s a card reader that comes along.

Price:  2.75%/transaction (swipe), 3.75%/transaction (key-in) OR $12.95/mo which reduces the rates to 1.75% and 2.75% repsectively.

#4. Paypal Here

PayPal has its own variant of the credit card payment processors that work as great PoS systems. If you’ve got a PayPal account and are happily using it for invoicing and payments, maybe PayPal Here is all you need. Get their card reader, and you’re set for the transactions. There’s a flat fee per transaction, and there are no catches.

But if you’re an enterprise looking for a complete PoS package, this is the one. Ambur is a complete package: it’s not just a PoS app but a total inventory management system. If you’re running a shop and looking for payment processing solutions that will take care of everything, Ambur is your solution. Check out our full review of Ambur iPad POS App.
