For a typical charity shop, gift aid is a complex or impossible task to handle - donated items are sold without the valuable gift aid being claimed. With a POS Core charity EPOS system, claiming gift aid on sales is a very simple, cost effective process and produces an overnight increase in revenue.
Our cutting edge POS Core solution is an ideal fit for volunteer run charity shops. Not only is the interface simple to use but gift aid can also be collected on qualifying sales.
As with all our systems, we only sell our own software, developed entirely in-house, here in the UK. We prefer to keep our userbase small to provide an intimate level of support via our remote help desk, on-site trainers and UK wide engineers.Get a Quote
Our charity shop EPOS systems offer a number of key advantages over the competition.
Gift aid sales.
Simple to use POS interface.
Dated labelling to highlight slow sellers.
Modern cloud infrastructure.
An unbiased selection of integrated credit and debit card processing options at highly competitive rates.
Full installation, on-site training and maintenance through our UK wide engineering team.
Our POS Core solution provides a user interface that has been specifically designed for ease of use. We appreciate that volunteer run charity shops must have a system that is simple to operate but which still offers powerful features.
• Clear and easy to read display
• Access to all front-of-house operations from a single screen
• Configurable department buttons for quick sales
• Support for barcoded gift aid labels
Setup is easy, as are changes to the interface which can be made at any time.
Our EPOS systems offer a fully configurable POS interface with infinite depth button menus. Assigning buttons to functions, departments or submenus is simple.
As well as setting up your initial menus for you, our support team are more than happy to make button changes as and when you need them.
Our POS Core software runs on the lightweight Android operating system. Consequently it supports a broad range of devices with different form factors and sizes.
If space is tight then a WiFi tablet with Bluetooth receipt printer, cash drawer and barcode scanner provides a compact (and also low cost) solution for the smallest counter.
You can even do away with the cash drawer altogether and go cashless. Our card processing partners offer highly competitive rates.
For donated goods that qualify for gift-aid, POS Core produces barcoded labels that are linked to the donor. Simply scan the barcode and enter the price at the point of sale. Full reporting on gift aid sales is provided.
With the date of printing included on the labels, this provides a quick and easy way to identify slow moving items which may need re-pricing.
With a dedicated facility for accepting monetary donations, the EPOS keeps these separate from shop sales, which is necessary for accounting purposes.
Where appropriate, a monetary donation is processed with the requisite gift aid declaration and the customer's details are recorded against it.
Processing card payments through an integrated solution where the EPOS system communicates directly with the payment device (PED), saves time and reduces errors.
Our EPOS systems integrate with a range of payment providers who offer highly competitive rates.
Our cloud back office provides access to back office functions through any suitable web browser on any capable device (PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone), anywhere in the world, without the need to install any software on the device itself.
A comprehensive suite of reports, with the facility to export to PDF or Excel for onward analysis and dashboarding.
Gift aid donations are itemised to help with completing the necessary declarations for HMRC.
Integration with third party accounts packages ensures compliance with Making Tax Digital rules which require sales figures to be electronically transmitted between systems.
POS Core integrates with Xero and Freeagent account packages. We are more than happy to look at custom integrations with other software.
