Point of Sale All-in-One Desktop Systems

If you have room on your counter we recommend an all in one big screen PC.   The nice thing with all in one's is there are very few cables, so it will look elegant on your counter.   We do like Lenovo products because of the quality and price.

Any wireless or USB scanner will work with coreSTORE. However, if you intend on scanning customer's driver's licenses you need a 2D scanner which can used for both scanning products and licenses. Not all 2D scanners are the same and some of the lower quality ones will not work properly. 

The best scanners for the job that we've found are made by Teemi and Tera, and are available on Amazon from $40 - $100.

Label/Barcode Printer 

The Zebra ZD410 is an excellent and lower cost bar code printer that can be used to print product labels and price tags.

Alternatively, we have had good results with the Zebra ZSB-DP12 on Windows. Please note that this isn't currently compatible with Mac OSX.
