A point-of-sale (POS), also known as point of purchase (POP), is the time and location at which a retail transaction is made. In order for a sale to occur, however, a POS terminal, such as a cash register, must be used.
POS terminals are a fundamental tool used by businesses to conduct transactions. In the most basic sense, a POS terminal is a device that allows business owners to accept payments from customers.
A cash register is one such example of a POS terminal, though others may include credit card terminals, mobile card readers and even computers. Because of their fundamental purpose of accepting payments, nearly all businesses that accept payments need a POS terminal.
