Point-of-sale (POS and also EFTPOS) software integration with Xero cloud accounting can now bring the benefits of a complete end-to-end accounting system to small businesses including retail stores, restaurants and cafés, hotels and bars, all manner of service-based businesses such as hairdressers and car repairers, and even highly mobile businesses like market stalls and pop-up stores.

Billings+Ellis are experts in Xero cloud accounting for small business and we are here to help streamline your business processes and financial management right from point-of-sale transactions through to taxation accounting and reporting.
We specialise in integrating the world’s most popular POS systems with Xero:
Vend is POS software that’s great for typical retailers such as fashion boutiques and homeware stores. Vend is Mac and PC-friendly, and an iPad app is available. Suitable for one to 100+ stores, the features of Vend include laybuys, easy returns and refunds, split payments, loyalty programs, gift cards and inventory. Billings+Ellis can help integrate Vend with your Xero accounting system.
Kounta is POS software used in many bars, cafés, and restaurants. Kounta offers many features that are ideal for the hospitality industry including modifiers (e.g. skim milk), table management, split bills, inventory management, etc. Kounta works on iPad, Android, Mac or PC and also existing equipment you may have. Add-ons are available to help with additional hospitality requirements such as rostering. Billings+Ellis are experienced hospitality industry accountants so talk to us about integrating Kounta with Xero.
Shopify POS software has features somewhat similar to Vend but would be more suitable for small businesses wanting to sell online, or with a wholesale component to the business model. Shopify is also a popular POS software choice for market stallholders, trade show exhibitors, and pop-up shops. Shopify can be used on an iPad or iPhone. There is an additional retail package available for handling typical retail store situations. If you’re interested in using Shopify for your e-commerce business or any other type of retail situation, we can help integrate Shopify with Xero cloud accounting.
Square is one of the most popular point-of-sale systems in the USA. Square has sound functionality and caters for all types of businesses including retail and hospitality. Square only works on a tablet, however, and it does not have third-party payment integrations if required. To use Square with Xero, talk to Billings+Ellis.
