POS for take-away restaurants

EPOS systems can be tailored to suit specific restaurant or take away business requirements, though not many company owners are made aware of this when they sign up to a merchant account.

Once company owners and managers know what their business requirements are, there are a number of options available to help stream line operations. We have put together a comprehensive guide to EPOS systems for takeaways or restaurants that covers all the ‘must know’ elements and added benefits these systems can bring to your business.

Customer Information

An EPOS system for takeaways can store customer information such as name, phone number and delivery address to speed up transactions and improve customer service. Incoming calls can be connected to existing customer data from previous orders to streamlining transactions, save time and ultimately improve customer relationships. This data is valuable and can allow business owners to understand their consumer demographic and build out marketing strategies based on this insight.

Menu Systems and Stock Control

Having a pre-programmed menu system included in your takeaway EPOS will save time and some companies charge extra fees for this service however, it’s worth the cost. Plus, if done correctly this will help you manage stock control. For example, when using a EPOS for a pizza takeaway, the user selects a Hawaiian – all ingredients will be reduced from current stock levels.


External Technology

Using takeaway EPOS software that integrates with websites and apps is vital in this day and age. Consumers expect speed and efficiency with purchases, especially when it comes to impulse buys like takeaways.

Staff Management

The best EPOS for takeaway restaurants have many features to both monitor staff performance and encourage development through target setting. Functions include ; clocking in/out systems, upselling prompts and rewards/discount facilities.

Apps for takeaway restaurants and pop-ups

In recent years following the COVID pandemic, hospitality businesses have utilised apps to take orders and payments. The surge of technology is not only being used within the take away market but in restaurants as well. Choosing the right app for your take away or pop-up restaurant can be tricky, however having it integrated to your till point and EPOS system will streamline not only the customer journey, but the order and payment process too.


Getting the Best Merchant Account for your Take-away

We can also help set you up with a merchant account for your take-away, which is essential for anybody to start taking card payments. Many EPOS companies make a good portion of their money by cross-selling merchant accounts, payment gateways and card readers along with their system – all as part of their “package” and done for you. The issue with this is that they will usually prioritise the merchant account provided with the company that offers them the most referral commission, rather than the company that is ideal for your business.

Libby James

Libby James Co-founded Merchant Advice Service alongside David Bird in 2016. Her finance background, coupled with retail and customer service experience, gave Libby the drive to bring transparency and non-biased advice to the world of merchant services. Having come from the heavily regulated mortgage and insurance industry, Libby found it puzzling that other financial sectors lacked regulation and transparency leaving customers confused and unable to make informed decisions when it came to accepting card payments. This was soon to become Libby’s obsession!

With the help of some of the industry’s best, Libby began to research acquiring banks, complex terminology/regulation, and the problems customers experience within merchant services and payment gateway markets. She spent years on sourcing solutions for complex clients, which previously others were unable to assist with. Libby established relationships with brokers and banks which would soon form the cornerstone of Merchant Advice Service. As a result Libby has been featured in high-profile publications across the web.

Libby is proud to be the entrepreneur’s champion, supporting start-up businesses regularly. Her industry insights can often be found on LinkedIn where she provides free of charge advice and money saving pointers. It’s safe to say she has her finger on the pulse of everything card payments related.

Libby speaks of her experience in founding and running Merchant Advice Service…

‘Merchant Advice Service is one of my greatest achievements to date. We help business owners to overcome card processing issues which can become detrimental to their business. We assist SME’s in finding suitable card payments solutions, helping them create their vision. Each and every day is different, exciting and fore filling. As technology advances I can’t wait to see the way in which the merchant services market advances, and I’m pleased that our business will play a part in educating company owners along the way.’
