1stPayPOS is a cloud-based iPad Point of Sale and cash register system. 1stPayPOS is a product of 1stPayGateway and is primarily resold by ISOs & Agents. The iPad POS system is used by merchants to ring up sales, open a cash drawer and accept, process and account for cash, gift & credit card payments. It allows receipts to be sent via text & email or printed. An Enhanced Receipt feature allows merchants to print barcode discounts, company logos, and styled text on receipts.[1] When used in a restaurant setting, the product allows orders to be sent to multiple kitchen and/or bar printers. A merchant portal provides sales data for merchants with analytics & reporting information about their products.[2] 1stPayPOS has an offline processing mode which allows merchants to capture card data In the event of a poor internet connection. The offline transactions can be authorized when their internet connection is strong again.

Business owners may configure employee password permissions to control the type of transactions processed such as Refunds, Activating gift cards and opening the cash drawer without a sale. 1stPayPOS also functions as an employee Time Clock, allowing owners to manage and edit employee hours. Cash management provides the merchant with the tools to control and manage cash in the drawer to prevent theft and track pay-outs and pay-ins. Inventory management tracks the items on hand and sends notifications when it's time to re-order more stock. Split Check allows businesses to accept multiple types of payment on one ticket, and assign items to specific guests. The Customer Loyalty Program allows merchants to offer promotions to frequent customers.
