Vend vs. Retail Express

Here are the top 6 reasons retailers are choosing Vend point of sale.


Easy, flexible, and stress-free setup.

Vend is so easy to use that you can actually set up the system yourself. That said, if you do need assistance, know that you have several options when it comes to implementing your POS. You can get help from your dedicated launch specialist or even have a local Vend expert handle all your setup needs.

Why choose Vend?

Worldwide support and features.

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 certain tax requirements, 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.
