Retail is fiercely competitive. Vend keeps you two steps ahead of your competition.
Vend is simple to set up, operates on any device with a web browser, and is an absolute breeze to use. Quickly add and sell any type of product. Track inventory in one or many stores, and reward your best customers with customer loyalty. These are just a few of the features available to help save you time and make your business more efficient.
Vend’s POS software is affordable. Get started with a monthly subscription from just US$69! Use Vend’s detailed, real-time reporting to get an instant snapshot of sales and staff performance from anywhere, at anytime, and make better data-driven business decisions by knowing which products sell best and make you the most profit.
Manage one store or many at the click of a button. Add registers and locations to help increase efficiency, manage peak sales periods, and grow your business. And when you do add those locations? Vend scales your reporting, inventory, and key features across all outlets.
But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what our customers say.
Philistine is an indie clothing store with a strong following of loyal customers and a 2,000-square-foot space centrally located in Toronto. Since opening their doors in 2010, Philistine has grown quickly, picking up brands and opening an independent online store. Using Vend, they were able to start the business with low overhead costs and scale easily on multiple channels.
“I would recommend Vend to retailers like us because it’s easy to grow with them, as opposed to launching out of the gate with a $5,000 system. The starting prices of other POS systems can be so intimidating, but not with Vend. That was one of the big draws for us.”
Colleen Ramage, Founder, Philistine

Vend allowed them to get the business off the ground quickly and easily and gave them access to the tools they needed to start making money right away.
“The Vend team truly blew my mind because of how helpful they were. They provided an amazing support team that gave me even more confidence in using the system.”
Nitasha Goel, Founder, The Cure Apothecary

How much does it cost to switch?
You don’t need to spend a fortune to switch your current POS system over to Vend. We have a tiered pricing model where the costs depend on how big your business is.
Plans for our POS system start at US$69 per month.
All of our plans include one free POS cash register, but you can add as many registers as you need. Depending on the plan you select, registers start at US$39 per register per month. To get comfortable with our POS system, you can start with a free trial account, so you can give us a test drive without investing too much from the get-go.
Can I get local support?
Absolutely. Our local Expert partners will help you get set up, give you training, and provide ongoing support.
Vend also provides 24/7 phone and email support (depending on your plan).
How long does it take to set up?
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 many SKUs and not a lot of free time, it could take a couple of weeks.
We know that time is money, so to make the setup as quick and painless as possible, we recommend that you prepare CSV files of the following before starting the process:
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, which includes hands–free setup where we take care of everything, including migrating products and customers, as well as one–to–one training. Contact us for more information.
Alternatively, you can find a Toronto–based 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.
Is Vend compatible with my existing POS hardware?
It’s very likely that Vend will work with the printers, scanners, credit card readers, and POS equipment you already have. We focus on making the software compatible with the best and most commonly used retail hardware and we often hear about retailers using Vend successfully with printers we’d never even heard of!
But just to be sure, swing by our recommended POS hardware page for detailed specs on the hardware, peripherals and computers compatible with Vend.

Why is Vend better for me than my current POS system?
Most people who switch to Vend’s point of sale system never look back. Users love our POS 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 happy Vend customers and what they have to say about our POS system.
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 POS software and see if it meets your needs.
You can also register for a free account to get a hands–on understanding 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 email@example.com.
