EPOS Systems for wholesale businesses

Point of sale systems are not just restricted to smaller business or ones which are customer facing. The need for a more extensive system within both wholesale, trade desk and cash and carry industries is becoming widely recognised amongst business owners. Ensuring you install a POS system that works well for your business currently and in the future, can not only save time but money too. At Merchant Advice Service, we look at the features of wholesale EPOS system’s which may be beneficial when choosing one that is best for you.



Wholesale businesses and trade desks often work from large premises and have stock changing hands daily, for this reason it’s incredibly important that the back-office reporting compliments a busy and often complex working environment. Within both wholesale and cash and carry industries, stock control and works orders surrounding stock are imperative when choosing a point of sale system. The correct wholesale POS could save time when auditing stock, money through human error and streamline cash and carry or wholesale businesses to work at the best of their ability – meaning repeat custom.


When searching for a cash and carry EPOS system or one for wholesalers and trade desks, it’s important to think of security. Having a pin or swipe card for staff members to use, means that you can restrict access to certain data, discounts and refunds to management and owners alone. Equally, it gives the ability to monitor staff performance – so you can make the most of your top performers.


Customer information is valuable for all businesses, having access to contact information and previous orders/purchases made enables marketing to be both direct and relevant to individual. Ensuring that a smooth transaction is had by all involved, increases repeat custom – choosing the correct wholesale POS system can make this possible.


In most cases, we recommend that the EPOS system chosen for a cash and carry or wholesale business is cloud based, this enables managers and owners to access vital statistics, from anywhere in the world – meaning that you don’t necessarily have to be in front of the EPOS system itself. This is particularly handy when working in large warehouses or busy environments where the POS system is being used for regular customer transactions. We also focus on installing easy to use systems, with prompts for staff to up-sell.

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.’
