Desktop POS Solutions: An Overview

3 min read
Wix lets you use your computer as a point of sale in two ways. Use the POS Checkout solution to make sales and collect payment from customers who visit you in person or use the Wix Dashboard Card Reader solution to collect payment from existing sales using a card reader.

POS checkout

POS Checkout is a great way to collect payment from clients or customers who visit you in person. If you use Wix Stores, you can add products to the cart and accept payment for them. In addition, you can charge clients for custom charges, whether you use Wix Stores or not. This makes it easy to accept payment for such things as consultations, therapy sessions, or lessons.

For example, if you use Wix Bookings and your client has booked a massage online, you can collect credit card payment from them when they come in to receive the treatment.
Additionally, you can collect payment for products you sell through Wix Stores or menu items you sell through Wix Restaurant Orders (new), and you can always add a custom charge to any order. That way, you can charge clients for such things as a consultation, therapy session, or lesson.
