I'm thinking about building my own POS system, but first I want to know if there is any real difference between a self-built and pre-built. I know size of the system might vary, but if I go with an ITX form factor it should be small enough. Also is it worth the "trouble"? How much does a pre-built one normally cost?
Does anyone know if Intuit Quickbooks software is sufficient for my needs (wholesale) or is there better software I can get my hands on. Will the software support peripherals (scanners, invoice printers, etc).
Any other info you guys can give me would be great as I'm completely new to how POS systems work, but have built many PCs.
In the couple of hours, I've done a bit more research and figured out all hardware.
Now I only need the software. Please give me some recommendations with pros and cons. I actually have a copy of Intuit, but I haven't used it before. So anything better for wholesale would be nice. It has to be user-friendly and can give prices based on different accounts. So say a customer got a special price last time, I can easily give them that same price later on, while everyone else gets a standard price, etc.
