Thinking of Using BottlePOS? Why You Should Look at Cloud Retailer POS Instead!

 

Thinking about using BottlePOS? Why you should look at Cloud Retailer POS Instead!


Both BottlePOS and Cloud Retailer POS are designed for beer, wine, and liquor stores in the United States but Cloud Retailer POS excels in several key areas:


Up Front Cost:

πŸ‘‰BottlePOS Up Front Costs for software, hardware and remote configuration: $1099 to $1399






πŸ‘‰Cloud Retailer POS Up Front Cost for software, hardware, training and configuration: $1150 to $1250:

Monthly Costs

BottlePOS starts at $49/month:

Cloud Retailer POS starts at $0/month










πŸ‘‰Key Difference # 1: Age Verification

BottlePOS: Manual Entry πŸ‘Ž (2D ID scanner is optional). Cashier can enter any date they want:


Cloud Retailer POS: 2D ID Reader Is Standard πŸ‘. Cashiers must scan the actual ID or manually enter/bypass with approved security settings:













πŸ‘‰Key Difference # 2: Inventory - Levels of Product Categories

BottlePOS: Only one level of categories πŸ‘Ž (not as detailed for ordering and inventory management):



Cloud Retailer POS: 3 Levels of categories πŸ‘ (much easier to get detailed inventory reporting and product management):


πŸ‘‰Key Difference # 3: Ordering/Purchasing

BottlePOS: Can Only Manually Add Products to an Order πŸ‘Ž (time consuming):



Cloud Retailer POS: Can Use Supplier Purchase Planning to Create Purchase Orders Based on Minimum Stock Levels or Past Sales Data πŸ‘. Saves you time but still allows for manual creation of Purchase Orders as needed:



πŸ‘‰Key Difference # 4: Smart Phone App


BottlePOS: No Smart Phone App available πŸ‘Ž. Some support for use on an iPad:


Cloud Retailer POS: Available free and paid options for both Android and iOS devices πŸ‘. Flexible options to use your smart phone for basic inventory management, reporting, and general daily activities like product management and label printing:











πŸ‘‰Key Difference # 5: POS Screen

BottlePOS: Point of Sale Screen is somewhat cluttered πŸ‘Ž. Not as easy for a cashier to read:



Cloud Retail POS: Point of Sale screen is clean and easy for a cashier to use and understand information on the point of sale screen πŸ‘:


πŸ‘‰Key Difference # 6: Cash Discounting vs. Dual Pricing:

Bottle POS: The Cash Discounting option in Bottle POS means that you have to advertise a higher credit price on your window and in store signage πŸ‘Ž. Cash Discounting may not be legal in your city or state: 



Cloud Retailer POS: The use of Dual Pricing in Cloud Retailer POS is legal in all 50 states and means that you can advertise a lower cash price instead of a higher credit price. Liquor Stores using Dual Pricing have reported profit increases of $2000 or more a month as their customers are covering 90% or more of the typical merchant services/credit card processing fees πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.



Summary:

Given that Cloud Retailer has a lower cost than BottlePOS over time, as well as more advanced inventory management, and the net savings by using Dual Pricing, Cloud Retailer is the clear winner when it comes to Point of Sale software designed for beer, wine and liquor stores in the United States.
