Point Of Sale System
What does POS mean?
A POS, also called point of sale, generally means: the place where the sale takes place. In a broad sense, a POS can be an entire department store, a market or a city, because these are all places where something can be bought or sold. However, this is not the case for retailers. For them, point-of-sale usually means the place around the cash register or counter where payment is made. Point of sale is for that reason also called point of purchase.
