Editor’s Review Of MerchantOS


MerchantOS is a web-based Point of Sale solution which I found after one of their people left a comment on this blog. Today I finally had time to have a look at it, and as it is web-based they have a far easier job than other manufacturers offering a demo on their site. Talking about their site, they also do a good job explaining the benefits of web based solutions such as location independent availability and low software installation costs.

MechantOS has a nice look and feel thanks to the use of AJAX, and a rich feature set. After logging in I was presented with a list of registers, after which I came to the sales screen. As you can see, sales options include several payment types, printing invoices, customer selection and layaway.


Other features of MerchantOS include inventory control, work orders, rentals, purchase orders and of course reporting.

    I highly recommend Merchant OS to any business. As a small business person, I have found the system affordable, versatile, and the dealer support absolutely sterling. I have spoken with other business people who have spent literally ten times the amount on other systems that are not at all as good as this. They envy our Merchant OS system, naturally!

    We’ve been using MerchantOS in our business since we started. I’ve found the software easy to use, and the support and response to feedback is par none.

    Hello, I currently have a POS system but the reporting is not adequate. Are you able to show me some of your reporting abilities.
