The Bad

  • Contract Length
  • License Fee

Contract Length

The minimum contract length when paying monthly for POS hardware or software is 12 months. If customers cancel before 12 months have passed, they must pay the remaining balance of the contract. After 12 months, the contract automatically becomes a rolling contract, but customers can cancel by giving 30 days notice.

License Fee

All fees are included in the monthly or upfront costs of the first year using Epos systems, but after that the company charges a $270 license fee for each device in use. However, customers with a standard or premium support plan do not pay an additional license fee.

The Bottom Line

Epos Now systems incorporate the most up-to-date features in the point of sale industry, and the company’s free trial offers a risk-free way to test those features before committing to the minimum 12-month contract. The products’ customer promotion and loyalty program features are especially impressive, allowing businesses to create custom promotions, track those promotions, and include images and special offers on printed or emailed receipts. With many pros, if you are not worried about a year-long contract and a licensing fee, this is a product that we recommend that you consider as a POS solution.

Brinley Knowles Smithfield, UT

I loved EPOS Now because they allowed my husband and I to have a 30 day free trial without putting any money down. This made us feel comfortable and trust the company as we could test it out first. It was great and we signed up after those 30 days because we loved it so much.
