In addition, you can integrate the system with a selection of add-ons: Order Anywhere for remote ordering, Lightspeed Delivery for syncing with major takeaway apps, a customer-facing display, kitchen display system and other integrations.
Order Anywhere costs £25 + VAT per month if paying monthly or £228 + VAT for a whole year upfront (equivalent to £19 + VAT per month). You can only subscribe to the Delivery module if you’re on an annual POS plan, and then you pay upfront for the year (£228 + VAT has been quoted before).
Lightspeed prefers to quote the other add-ons to merchants directly.
Multi-location restaurants, hotels and other complex businesses can opt for an Enterprise subscription with custom pricing.
The POS system is linked to Lightspeed Payments, which charges 1.2% + 10p per domestic Visa and Mastercard payment or 2.75% for Amex transactions. Additional fees may apply, communicated only when you sign up. For example, Lightspeed sells a specific card machine for its payment system, the cost of which is quoted during onboarding.
Alternatively, you can integrate the till with one of three card machine providers: Zettle, SumUp or Paymentsense. Payment processing fees differ, but Zettle and SumUp have cheap card readers with pay-as-you-go pricing, whereas Paymentsense only offers contracts with custom rates.
There are hardware solutions explained and quoted only when you speak to a Lightspeed adviser, so the final cost will ultimately depend on your needs.
