Easy, flexible, and stress-free setup.

Vend offers more options when it comes to setting up your POS. Unlike Retail Express, which requires you to have a project manager to get up and running, Vend is so easy to use that you can actually set up the system yourself. And if you do need assistance, you can always get help from your dedicated launch specialist or have a local Vend expert handle all your setup needs.


Worldwide support and features.

Unlike Retail Express, whose main focus is on the Australian market, Vend caters to a global customer base. We’re continuously developing features to support retailers from all over the world. For instance, Vend offers cash rounding for merchants in countries that implement rounding rules. Vend also supports different tax rules, so whether you’re displaying tax-exclusive prices (e.g. merchants in the US and Canada) or using tax-inclusive pricing (e.g. stores in New Zealand and Australia), we’ve got you covered.


Tons of value for a fraction of the cost.

Implementing Retail Express costs almost $5,000 AUD per store (excluding ecommerce), and that’s on top of a monthly fee that you have to pay for each outlet. Vend, on the other hand, has pricing plans that start at $79 AUD per month for single-store retailers, while multi-outlet merchants can get a powerful retail management solution complete with omnichannel capabilities for just $289 AUD a month.


Easily expand the capabilities of Vend — and your business.

Vend’s ecosystem of add-ons is not only larger than the one offered by Retail Express, but it’s a lot easier to connect apps to Vend. Unlike Retail Express, there’s no need to deal with additional integrators. And if you ever need to create a custom integration, you can tap into Vend’s API for free. Retail Express, on the other hand, charges an additional $2,000 AUD to use its API.


A better iPad experience.

While both Vend and Retail Express can run on tablets, Macs, and PCs, Vend goes a step further by offering Vend Register - our native iPad application. Highly intuitive and beautifully designed, Vend’s iPad-optimized app offers a faster checkout experience that’s sure to impress your customers.


Round-the-clock customer support plus superior resources.

Unlike Retail Express, Vend provides 24/7 support via email and chat on all our plans, as well as round-the-clock phone support as part of our Advanced and Multi-Outlet plans. There’s also Vend U - an educational initiative that gives you access to world-class training videos to help you get the most out of Vend. Access it for free with all our plans.
