I don’t want to spend a fortune, how much is the switch to Vend?
We don’t want you to spend a fortune either which is why Vend has a tiered pricing model where the costs depend on how big your business is. Plans start at USD$69 per month (USD$59 per month if billed annually) and can go up to USD$199 per month (USD$169 per month if billed annually).
All plans include one free register, but you can add as many registers as you need. Depending on the plan you select, registers start at USD$39 per register per month (or USD$35 per month if billed annually). To be safe, you should probably start with a free account so you can give us a test drive without investing too much from the get-go.
I’m a very busy person, how much time does it take to set up Vend?
It really depends on how many products you have and how busy you are. Some merchants complete the process within a couple of hours, but if you have tons of SKUs and not a lot of free time, it could take weeks.
We do understand that time IS money for entrepreneurs, so in order to make set-up as quick and painless as possible, we recommend that you prepare CSV files of the following before starting the process:
- List of all products
- List of prices and tax information
- List of SKUs or barcodes
- List of customers
For more info, you might want to check out Vend’s POS Buyer’s Guide where we provide more information + checklists of what you may need when choosing and setting up your POS. If you need someone to walk you through the process, just get in touch with us and support staff can assist you.
Vend also offers professional services that include hands-free setup (where we take care of everything, including migrating products and customers) and one-to-one training. Contact us for more information.
Alternatively, you can find a Vend partner in your area to provide on-site POS installation and account set up for you. Our partners are certified Vend experts who can get you up and running with the hardware, software, and add-ons you need to run your store.
Is Vend compatible with my existing hardware?
It’s very likely that Vend will play nice with the printers, scanners, credit card readers, and equipment you already have. We focus on making the software work with the best and most commonly used retail hardware and we hear a lot from retailers using Vend successfully with printers we’d never even heard of.
But to be sure, swing by Vend’s Hardware Guide as well as our Recommended Hardware Page for detailed specs on the hardware, peripherals, and computers compatible with Vend.
