Best Point of Sale Systems for Christian Church Bookstores and Cafe's

I've had the pleasure of working with multiple Christian churches over the years that are large enough to have in house bookstores and/or coffee shops or cafe's.  Many have asked me for advice related to the best point of sale system they should be using so I figured that it would be good to share my advice via a blog post.

You can always contact me with additional questions and all Christian organizations and non-profit organizations (churches, charities, thrift shops, retail stores, museums, etc) are eligible for free and unbiased advice - just keep in mind that I do not actually sell anything but can point you in the correct direction and make introductions as appropriate.

The best solution for your organization is based on your annual gross sales volume as follows:

Under $100,000 in annual gross sales:
  1. Cash register
  2. Square
$100,000 to $800,000 in annual gross sales:
  1. Bindo POS
  2. Cloud Retailer
  3. Retail Management Hero
$800,000+ in annual gross sales:
  1. Retail Management Hero
  2. Retail Realm Essentials/Microsoft Dynamics AX
  3. NCR CounterPoint
I no longer advise using Microsoft RMS or POS 2009 due to these products being "end of life".  I also advice avoiding HarborTouch, First Data Clover, and QuickBooks Point of Sale due to excessive merchant service fees being charged by these companies.

Are you  in the US and in need of no cost retail point of sale advice?  I'm happy to help and can be reached on my cell at 208-340-5632 (I am on Mountain Time) or via email at There is also a contact form to the right that can be used to reach me.
