Frequently asked questions.

Get honest answers to your top questions about switching to Vend’s iPad POS software.

First off, good for you for deciding to use an iPad POS solution. An increasing number of retailers are opting for mobile POS systems because they’re sleek, portable, and allow you to bring the checkout process to your customers.

And yes, Vend runs great on an iPad. You’ll be able to get the system up and running either by downloading our iPad app or using our web-based application. Check out this article for step-by-step instructions and a video on how to set up Vend on your iPad.

We don’t want you to spend a fortune either which is why Vend has a tiered pricing model where the cost depends on how you'll be using Vend. All plans include one free register, but you can add as many registers as you need. To be safe, you should probably start with a free account so you can give us a test drive without investing too much from the get-go.

It really depends on how many products you have and how busy you are. Some merchants complete the process within a couple of hours, but if you have thousands of SKUs and not a lot of free time then you may need some assistance.

We do understand that time IS money for entrepreneurs, so in order to make iPad POS set-up as quick and painless as possible, we recommend that you prepare CSV files of the following before starting the process:

  • List of all products
  • List of prices and tax information
  • List of SKUs or barcodes
  • List of customers

If you need someone to walk you through the process, just get in touch with us and our support staff can assist you. Vend also offers professional services that include hands-free setup (where we take care of everything, including migrating products and customers) and one-to-one training. Contact us for more information.

Alternatively, you can find a Vend partner in your area to provide on-site POS installation and account set up for you. Our partners are certified Vend experts who can get you up and running with the hardware, software, and add-ons you need to run your store.

It shouldn’t be that difficult if you know your way around CSV files and importing tools. Vend lets you add your products one-by-one and we also have a CSV import functionality if you want to add products in bulk.

For step-by-step instructions on how to do this you can check out the following articles:

We even made a guide to try to make it easy and fun to get started. Check it out here. And if you need someone to guide you throughout the migrating process (or even do it for you) you may want to consider investing in Vend professional services so we can get you up and running in as little time possible. Contact us for more information.

We wouldn’t want you to get to get stuck either. Fortunately, Vend support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Online and phone support is free with every plan, so you can send us a message or call whenever you get stuck. You can also consult our Help Center anytime to find the answer to your question.

It’s very likely that Vend will play nice with the printers, scanners, credit card readers, and equipment you already have. We focus on making the software work with the best and most commonly used retail hardware and we hear a lot from retailers using Vend successfully with printers we’d never even heard of.

But to be sure, swing by Vend's hardware guide as well as our Recommended Hardware Page for detailed specs on the hardware, peripherals, and computers compatible with Vend.

Can’t find your existing hardware on our list of recommendations? Contact our sales consultants at sales@vendhq.com or sign up for a free account and see how Vend works with your store’s existing hardware.

Most people who switch to Vend never look back. Merchants love the software’s user-friendly and intuitive interface, as well as its features and integrations. You don’t have to take our word for it though; here are some examples of Vend customers and what they have to say about the POS.

However, we understand that each business is unique and not all tools may be a good fit for you. That’s why we invite you to take a tour of our software and see if it meets your needs. You can also register for a free account to get a hands-on feel of how it works. Finally, you can always talk to our trusty sales consultants for any specific questions or concerns and they’ll help you decide if Vend really is right for you. Drop us a line at sales@vendhq.com.

Talk to us! Really. We’d be happy to discuss your questions or concerns so you can make the right decision. Also swing by our support forums, our fun Getting Started Guide and Vend University for video tutorials, articles, and other resources about how to use Vend (and how to be a better retailer in general.)

But the best and sure-fire way to determine if Vend is a good fit for your biz is trying it out for yourself. Try us for free for a month, and take advantage of our email support while you’re at it so you can get all the answers you need.
