Cash Register Distributors Warehouse explains what to look for when buying a cash register online for your business.

The internet is full of generic cash register sites stuffed with cash register search terms that are confusing and have no purpose other than increasing the sites page ranking in Google.

Past News Releases


Today's restaurant or retail shop owner in search of a cash register will notice right away that there are literally a million different sites to choose from when buying a cash register or POS (Point-of-Sale) for their small business. What many people don’t realize are the many pitfalls that come with not knowing which company to deal with or what to ask for when making a cash register purchase online.

Cash Register Distributors Warehouse has put together a list of things to watch out for when buying a cash register online include:

  • Used or refurbished cash registers advertised as “New”.
  • Used or refurbished cash registers at prices that are close to what a new register would cost.
  • Programming either NOT included or included for an additional fee (up to $120 in some cases) above and beyond the cost of the cash registers price.
  • Bate and switch – When a link is clicked and something else is found instead of the cash register named in the link, this usually means that the company wants to sell something else that they carry and not the model searched. This happens frequently in the higher listed sites in Google and other search engines.
  • No Warranty or being charged extra for a warranty. Almost every new register comes with a manufacturer warranty, so there is no need to buy one unless you want an extended warranty.
  • Extra shipping / handling costs not stated during the purchase process wiping out any savings that were expected.
  • No LIVE Support or phone number on the site to call someone with your cash register questions or programming concerns. Be sure to deal with a subject matter expert not a vending machine.
  • Finding a generic cash register site full of cash register terms that are confusing and have no purpose other than increasing its page ranking in Google.

Cash Register Buy Tips

“New” should mean just that...NEW...from the manufacturer not NEW to you.

Programming – ask if it’s extra or if it’s included in the cash registers published price. In our case we will do the programming at NO COST and to exact specifications.

Confirm cash register model numbers so that you are talking about the same cash register. Many Sharp, Casio and other cash registers have very similar model numbers. It matters!

Warranty – This is a given, but be sure that the cash register comes with an original warranty and in our case we have that, plus we offer a 1-year NO COST warranty on all of our cash registers for aditional piece of mind.

Shipping – This matters when trying to control the total cost of a cash register. To compare your overall cost this information is important to have before your purchase is made and don’t be afraid to ask for a WRITTEN quote.

Talk to a Human – This may sound old fashioned but probably the biggest mistake people make is to buy a cash register online via a shopping cart. What the final purchase will include will be anybody’s guess since the vital programming of the cash register will probably NOT be included and there is nothing worse than being held hostage AFTER the purchase in order to get the cash register programmed on location.
