Consider how your customers would like to pay.

When you’re deciding between a traditional POS system that accepts credit and debit cards, or the latest in technology that allows your customers to pay with their smartphone or another device, think about how your current customers—as well as valuable future customers—would like to pay. 

The popularity of mobile payments will continue to grow in the foreseeable future, with experts projecting that in-person payments made with a smartphone will see the biggest growth (Source: Forrester Research; PaymentsCardsandMobile.com). Choosing a retail POS system that accepts mobile payments using an app may be a great way to attract new, young customers, as well as keep your current customers loyal.
