However, our transparent TSE checkout supports you in meeting all of the requirements - allowing you to concentrate fully on your shoppers.
What does POS mean?
POS stands for "point of sale". This can refer to various locations. Prior to the introduction of eCommerce, it generally referred to the shelves containing products or the checkout area in retail shops. However, POS now has a more far-reaching significance. In the field of payments, it no longer refers exclusively to checkout areas - but rather to the terminal used to pay for products or services. POS terminals are used throughout the world as a uncomplicated way of processing cashless payments.
What is POS marketing?
POS marketing involves planning a POS strategy for the respective target group as a way of generating more sales. Visual factors, such as the design of a POS, also play an important part here.
What is EPOS?
Online shops also have a point of sale. However, these are referred to as EPOS – electronic points of sale. Here, the POS is a fully electronic system that processes the purchase – also in a shop – via barcode using a computer system. At the same time, stock levels are automatically corrected. To use the EPOS, the shopper must first complete an authentication process for the respective card at the POS offered. Following successful authentication, the payment is processed completely automatically. Many shop owners use payment service providers for this step as a way of keeping the workload per transaction as low as possible.
What benefits does an EPOS offer?
An EPOS is what makes cashless payments possible for Internet purchases with credit or debit cards. In addition, the transactions are generally completely secure, meaning that there are virtually no risks for the recipient or debtor. The transaction time is also shorter than with a classic bank transfer. Alongside security for customers, retailers also enjoy a genuine benefit, as a payment guarantee is provided when using the EPOS method. Customers generally do not have to pay any charges for EPOS payments within Germany. Only when performing overseas transactions are customers sometimes required to pay charges, depending on the respective financial institution.
