The Cash Register Guys have a combined 85+ years in the cash register business. We operate a full service retail cash register and POS dealership in Seattle Washington. Our retail store was started in the early 70's.
We started selling Cash Registers over the Internet about 5 years ago as the market started to shift that way. Many Cash Registers Dealers across the country have gone away or have switched to selling POS systems only. We on the other hand sell and service POS systems and Cash Registers. Both segments of our business continue to grow because of the lack of Cash Register Dealers across the country.
One of the biggest advantages for the end-user of buying a cash register on-line is of course the discount prices available. However because of the discount price structure end-users buying on-line do not get the amount of free support a retail paying end-user would receive, but keep in mind they paid hundreds more. Web sites like this allow us a much lower overhead to market cash registers across the country then our retail store does, which is the reason web sites sell cheaper then retail stores.
In our 5+ years of selling Cash Registers on-line we find that the majority of our Internet customers are willing to program and learn to operate the cash registers they buy from us on their own. Of course we offer support for a fee or we can ship a register system completely programmed for a fee. If you are not comfortable programming or learning a machine on your own we would urge you to pay for the extra service we provide or to buy the machine from a retail dealer near you. Yes you will pay more, but you also would need more.
So that is our story and why we sell Cash Registers on the Internet. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
