The point of sale (POS) or point of purchase (POP) is the time and place where a retail transaction is completed. At the point of sale, the merchant calculates the amount owed by the customer, indicates that amount, may prepare an invoice for the customer (which may be a cash register printout), and indicates the options for the customer to make payment.
Most of the retailers like supermarkets, restaurants etc are using touchscreen complete set of POS machine and for them, it is easy to handle the transactions without any hassle. The majority of POS using retail counters are doing more transactions with short time. Most of the small retailers are using normal computers for the same usage with POS software to manage the cost.
