  • » Keyboard can be a simple and inexpensive PC keyboard. Keys A-Z can be set up to have up to four PLUs on each. A simple label attached to the key can be changed at any time.
  • » Works with Programmable Keyboards and again once setup using POSnet you can change what key is for what PLU or Product without using difficult and technical utilities to maintain the Keyboards Programming.

  • » Foreign Language support on the POSnetPOS screens (not there yet).
  • » Price required items is as simple as setting the PLU price to Zero, no fancy and difficult ECR flags to set up.

  • » Charge Client or Customer accounts. Even when they pay for their purchases, this feature makes it ideal for Xmas Club, Loyalty and Reward cards. As more than one card can be associated with a Purchase (Basket) third part programs like "Flybuys" can be accommodated. Again some customisation may be necessary so please tell us what you specific requirements are via the Forum.
