You can purchase a new EPOS system for your UK business for cheaper than you think. Economically priced systems that include hardware and software are available for as little as £1,199.00. These systems are especially beneficial to smaller businesses that only require one point of sale system.
Depending on the types of business you may have, EPOS system package prices will vary greatly. For example, hair salons will need only one touchscreen and till, whereas a busy pub will need at least three, as well as mobile chip and pin devices.
A good value package for this price should include:
- Hardware and software with touch screen or conventional terminal
- Windows operating system
- Barcode scanner
- Thermal receipt printer
- Cash drawer
- EPOS till software
- Chip and pin device
Packages are a particularly good value as they will include all you need for a one system operation. Looking for a deal is important when making a purchase decision, but make sure you don’t sacrifice necessary operational features that your store may require.
Doing thorough research before you approach a company, and comparing quotes from different suppliers, will ensure you get the best deal as prices can alter dramatically between companies.

If you are buying individual hardware components, buying second hand is great way to get you EPOS hardware cheap. You can buy cheap EOS hardware on platforms like Gumtree, eBay or Preloved.
There are also a range of suppliers specialising in refurbished EPOS hardware, from whom you can buy the hardware cheap.

Cheap EPOS Software
If your budget is absolutely minimal, EPOS software can be had for free. Some of these bundles can be quite good, especially if you are just starting out and getting to know EPOS software. But they often have drawbacks such as hidden costs or a lack of features. If you are looking for cheap EPOS software that can really perform, a cloud-based bundle like Vend or Cybertill can be a good choice.
