Looked for a long time and at many different types of stands to find a replacement for existing stands we’ve been using for several months and needed to replace with a more stylish, easier to use option. We now have 6 of these stands. They look good, are easy to use and much more stylish than our old ones. The base is very sturdy, with no danger of tipping over, even without being screwed to the desktop. The only thing I’d prefer is that the iPad holder itself was metal and not plastic, but other than that, this stand is definitely the best of all the other available options.
ShopKeep (see our review) is a favorite here at Merchant Maverick and one of the cheapest options around; for food truckers looking for a full-featured POS system, it’s hard to beat $49/month/register. This price includes 24/7 support and 60 days of personal training from a ShopKeep expert, as well as a free, Free ShopKeep Pocket™ iOS app and access to real-time analytics. The initial cost of buying hardware, of course, is not included in the monthly subscription fee for any POS software, though if you’re starting out from scratch it does pay to purchase a hardware bundle from the vendor (see more tips about choosing hardware here).
Much chunkier than many others on the market, the Square Stand is also heavier – weighing in at 4lbs 15oz – and more obvious at 9.42 inches high.

While this looks clean and modern, it isn’t the easiest design to blend with branding and could also stick out like a sore thumb in some environments.

Does your food truck or produce stand only accept cash payments? If this limited form of payment is starting to hurt your business, then it may be time you made the switch to a mobile point of sale system. This growing method of payment utilizes smart phone and tablet technology to accept and process credit and debit cards. Besides their convenience, mobile point of sale systems can be easily modified to suit your preferences. Most of the programs available for mobile POS can even be used to track sales trends in your coffee shop, cafe, or bakery, so you can find out when your peak times of business are, as well as product performance.
One of Revel’s best characteristics is that it integrates with most hardware brands.

Additionally, it’s possible to integrate directly with third-party add-ons, including mobile payments, online ordering, gift/customer reward cards, and financial software suites. Basically, Revel is flexible enough to be whatever you need it to be.
