Free POS software
What is rather amazing about both is that you get a free point-of-sale (POS) app that can make life easier for a lot of small businesses. Both apps allow you to add products with attributes and images, and categorise them for easy checkout.
That being said, iZettle really excels with their free POS features including in-app barcode scanning and stock level counts. For £39/month per iPad, you can subscribe to iZettle Pro, a comprehensive POS system for cafés, bars, restaurants and other catering establishments. The iZettle E-commerce subscription costs £29 a month and includes an integrated ecommerce platform (so it’s not just PayPal that can integrate with web shops).
PayPal also offers more features with an additional software integration, which you would need to customise directly with PayPal. Prices start at £20 per month for this. PayPal partners with many POS providers like Vend and AirPOS, enabling them to handpick a solution that’s right for you. The downside is you don’t know what you get before you speak to PayPal, while with iZettle, you can read online exactly what’s included before making a decision.
