POSGuys.com Essential Retail System Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

The Essential Retail System is a good choice for low volume retail environments, where credit card processing is done via a separate terminal or not at all. For higher volume environments, we really recommend the Value or Preferred Retail Systems.
