Rent vs Buy a Cash Register: What’s Best For My Business?

For retailers, having a cash register is a must. After all, it is the most efficient way to ring up your customers and keep track of your sales. No, the choice is not whether you should have one but which cash register best suits your needs, and whether to rent or buy it.

As experts in retail solutions, ZeroBubble offers you the option to buy, rent or lease a cash register as part of its professional POS solutions. To help you make the right choice for your business, we’ve put together a helpful guide on whether you should purchase, rent or lease a cash register and why ZeroBubble is the right solution.

Gaining Access To a Cash Register: The ZeroBubble Guide.

Why Do I Need a Cash Register?

Cash registers play a key role in your business’s sales processes. Apart from providing your business with a secure location to store your cash, a cash register allows you to keep track of your cash flow, reconcile receipts and balance the day-to-day transactions. During transactions, a cash register executes calculations with more accuracy and speed, especially when using modern point of sale (POS) systems.

Since POS systems can sync up all of your business operations – whether they occur online or in-store – and automatically generate analytical reports, these give you the ability to track your business’s financial information. All in all, a modern cash register gives you the power to stay on top of your sales and helps your business to work with smoother efficiency.


Buying, Renting or Leasing a Cash Register

Buying vs renting? Short-term rentals vs long leases? The best choice will vary from business to business. Yet, with over 50 years of experience in the industry, we can help you make the right choice for your business, here are some simple guidelines to help you with your decision.

  • Buying a cash register. Owning your own cash register is the most practical option for small businesses that don’t require a lot of machines to handle their business flow.
  • Renting a cash register. If you need a cash register for a one-time event, renting a cash register for a short amount of time is your best bet. This gives you access to high-quality machinery without having to make a long-term investment.
  • Leasing a cash register. When in need of large quantities of machines for your business, leasing is more economical than purchasing. Owning your own cash registers requires space to store them when they are not in use and puts the burden of repairs and day-to-day upkeep entirely on your business. When leasing from ZeroBubble, we’ll support you with all of your day-to-day needs.
