Retail is fiercely competitive. Vend keeps you two steps ahead of your competition.
It’s easy to get Vend up and running, and it’s even easier to manage your products and registers. Quickly add and sell items using Vend, and handle your inventory for one shop or multiple locations from a single interface. Vend runs on any device with a web browser, so you can track your business and get things done quickly wherever you are in the world.
Stock levels in Vend are updated across all your stores in real-time so you always know what you have (or don’t have) in stock. There are also measures in place to prevent you from running out of stock by setting automatic reorders whenever items are running low. What’s more, Vend allows you to track the cost of goods and gives you insights into your margins, so you can refine your sales and pricing strategies accordingly.
Add more features and functionality to your POS system with Vend’s growing list of add-ons and technology partners. Need to eliminate financial data entry and automate bank reconciliations? Vend can talk to other pieces of software that can do those things for you. Need to link your ecommerce site to your brick-and-mortar store? No problem.

Honest (non-salesy) answers to your top questions about switching to Vend.
I don’t want to spend a fortune, how much is the switch to Vend?
We don’t want you to spend a fortune either which is why Vend has a tiered pricing model where the costs depend on how big your business is. Plans start at USD$69 per month and can go up to USD$249 per month (USD$199 per month if billed annually).
All plans include one free register, but you can add as many registers as you need. Depending on the plan you select, registers start at USD$49 per register per month (or USD$39 per month if billed annually). 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.
I’m a very busy person, how much time does it take to set up Vend?
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 tons of SKUs and not a lot of free time, it could take weeks.
We do understand that time IS money for entrepreneurs, so in order to make set-up as quick and painless as possible, we recommend that you prepare CSV files of the following before starting the process:

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.

Is Vend compatible with my existing hardware?
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.
