As a standalone EFTPOS terminal, Zeller Terminal acts as a portable checkout with no complicated functions. The device only has features for accepting cards, refunding transactions and monitoring transactions.
That said, a Contact Directory was recently added to the merchant dashboard. Here, you can store and manage customers, vendors and others and categorise them for a tidy overview. With customers added, you can monitor their purchasing trends, and vendors or suppliers link to transactions made with the Mastercard when you reorder stock.
You can also integrate the terminal with certain point of sale (POS) systems, including Erply, Impos, H&L and OrderMate. Although Zeller advertises “over 600 different POS platforms”, some cloud-based options like Lightspeed, Abacus and Hike are not integrated yet.
Furthermore, some of these integrations are for other software than POS, such as payment methods (Zip, Afterpay) or enterprise resource planning/ERP (Jim2).
An integrated POS system allows you to push transactions from your chosen POS software to the terminal for a smooth sales flow, and your business logo can be displayed on the terminal display. It also gives you more complete sales reports including both cash and EFTPOS transactions.
