BooksPOS allows you to save more as we do not take a cut of your sales. However, Square takes 2.75% of your transaction each time. This is on top of the credit-card rate that only reduces with the more expensive plan you purchase.
With BooksPOS, you don’t get billed with any additional transaction fees, and further you’re allowed to use any of our integrated payment processors or use one of your own.

You get tax reports based on your sales which can help you file documents at the end of the month/quarter/year. Also, auto-generate delivery documents.

|Customer Support||BooksPOS||Square POS|
While initiating a new system, customer service is something that’s prior to any other feature for a retailer. Customer support has been a hit or miss in Square POS. While BooksPOS provides 24*7 phone support, email, live support, and training, Square POS offers only email as a support to its customers. BooksPOS cares for its customers so they can grow their retail without any difficulty.
|Accounting (Quickbooks)|| $75/mo|
|Omnichannel Inventory management|| $40/mo|
|Business Intelligence tool|| $200/mo|
|White Labelling options|| $50/mo|
|API Access*|| $250/mo|
*API Access is a customs requirement, and there will be an additional cost to using it.
Unlike Square POS, which needs a Retail Subscription starting from $119/pm and transaction fees of 2.75%, BooksPOS starts with $29/month per device. BooksPOS gives more value to the dollar you pay than any other POS software in the industry.
With the BooksPOS subscription, you get access to all the features as well as the updates that we release frequently.
It is clear that Square POS lacks features and still costs higher. For small retail owners, using Square POS is like moving all their sales revenue into the transaction fee, service fee, add-ons costs, or costs for buying its additional “retail package” for their retail store.
However, BooksPOS provides every feature and tool that a small retail owner seeks for his POS system. Also, our software is affordable for every small retailer as well. We don’t eat your profits by charging any additional fees.
BooksPOS understand the needs of small retail owners so we support them 24*7 to keep their operations running smoothly.
