The installation time of a POS system depends on a number of factors. The first is whether or not you have an existing system in place, or whether you need to purchase new hardware.

If you already have a point-of-sale system, the only thing that needs to be done is to connect the new hardware to your existing network. This can take as little as 20 minutes for a basic setup. If there are any problems with the existing system, however, it will take longer for technicians to resolve them.

If you don’t have an existing point-of-sale system and need to purchase new hardware from scratch, then several factors will affect how long it takes to install the equipment. These include:

  • The type of POS terminal you choose (desktop or mobile)
  • The number of POS terminals needed
  • Whether or not you want cash drawers and receipt printers included with your purchase
