Simple and transparent pricing.

With Vend, you always know what you’re paying for. Unlike Revel, whose pricing varies widely merchant by merchant, each of Vend’s plans are transparently priced. Plus, with our free 30-day trial and simple tiered pricing, you can test out Vend risk-free and easily scale up (or down) as your business evolves.


Built for inventory-based retailers.

Unlike Revel, which was designed for QSRs and restaurants, Vend’s POS is built specifically for inventory-based retailers. Vend’s stock control features are more intuitive, enabling you to import thousands of SKUs in minutes. Vend also lets you perform partial and full inventory counts, so it’s easier to reduce shrink, maintain inventory accuracy, and keep your stores stocked with items your customers love.


Flexible with hardware.

Revel requires you to use an iPad, but Vend was designed to be truly hardware independent – meaning you can use it on the equipment you already have. Vend works on your iPad, or can be set up on your PC or Mac laptop or desktop.


A cinch to set up and use.

Setting up a complex system like Revel can be time-consuming and daunting. By contrast, Vend lets you go from setup to selling in no time. Our system is simple enough for many storeowners, managers, and associates to set up on their own. Need more help? Vend has Launch Specialists and partners who can provide done-for-you setup services.


Amazing training and support.

In addition to our award-winning customer support, Vend is designed with in-software tutorials so you never have to look far for assistance. And we don’t stop at software tutorials. We also provide marketing, sales, merchandising, and other business advice. Vend’s Retail Resource Library is packed with in-depth guides, tools, and webinars to help you run a better retail business.


Features to support global markets.

Unlike US-only companies, Vend continuously develops 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.


Built-in ecommerce for retailers.

While Revel has online ordering, their ecommerce offering is geared towards restaurants. You could integrate with a third party, but why go through the trouble when you can just choose Vend, which has a built-in ecommerce solution? Vend syncs your inventory, customer data, and reports across all your sales channels so you can sell in-store, online, and on-the-go.

The best choice for modern retailers.
