    The Good

    • No Transaction Fees
    • Employee Accounts
    • Custom Receipts

    No Transaction Fees

    There are no additional transaction fees with Vend. You only pay the monthly fee, which can vary depending on the package you choose. This is beneficial to companies that aren’t wanting to deal with extra monthly fees. 

    Employee Accounts

    Vend allows its users to create individual employee accounts to track sales easily. Each account can be customized including the ability to give permission or restrict what users can see and do. 

    Custom Receipts

    A fun feature that Vend offers is custom receipts. This allows businesses to customize their receipts with their logo and website. Vend’s technology also allows customers to choose if they want a printed or emailed receipt. 

    The Bad

    • Single Outlet Coverage
    • Few Gift Card Options

    Single Outlet Coverage

    Most of Vend’s monthly plans only cover one outlet. If your business has multiple outlets, you will have to purchase the multi-outlet plan, which is over double the price per month. 

    Few Gift Card Options

    If you are paying for the starter plan, which is $69 per month, then you do not have the feature to use gift cards. Only when you pay for the advanced or multi-outlet do you have the option to incorporate gift cards into your business. 

    The Bottom Line

    We recommend Vend to any retailer who is wanting a customizable POS plan and doesn’t mind paying for monthly plans or added features. Because Vend doesn’t charge transaction fees, this allows more of a business’s budget to go towards getting the features that fit their company the best. Vend is best for anyone who is working with a single outlet.
