Frequently asked questions about our POS system

This will depend 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 a couple of weeks.

We do understand that time is money for entrepreneurs, so in order to make setting 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 with prices, tax information, SKUs and barcodes
  • Your current customer database (if you have one)

For more info, you might want to check out Vend’s POS Buyer’s Guide where we provide more information and checklists of what you may need when choosing and setting up your POS system. If you need someone to walk you through the process, just get in touch with us and 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 setup for you. Our partners are certified Vend POS experts who can get you up and running with the point of sale hardware, software, and add-ons you need to run your store.

It’s very likely that Vend will play nice with the printers, scanners, credit card readers, and POS equipment you already have. We focus on making the software work with the best and most commonly used retail hardware and we’ve heard from retailers using Vend successfully with printers we’ve haven’t heard of.

But to be sure, swing by our Recommended POS Hardware page for detailed specs on the hardware, peripherals, and computers compatible with Vend.

Can’t find your existing POS hardware on our list of recommendations? Contact our Retail Solutions Specialists at or sign up for a free account and see how Vend works with your store’s existing hardware.
