    I have a question. After the closing of our independent bookshop in our town, my friend and Ijust decided to start a pop-up bookstore and author event business. While at author events, it’s easy to manage inventory because we buy 75 books of ONE title and sell those using the Square. Easy. But…this December, we have rented a space for a pop-up bookstore so people in our town have a place to go for recommendations and to buy books in our small town..so it sort of feels like a brick and mortar bookstore is still here. We will probably have 50-75 titles and think the 2 Squares won’t be enough and too hard for each transaction that won’t be the same title….we won’t have time to look down the list a pick the book they want to buy and then initiate the transaction AND we want to keep track of inventory during December because it will be a busy busy time. We want to be able to click on the book’s ISBN’s number and have the customer pay…quick. I believe Square’s inventory system is pricey. We may or may not do another pop-up at another time of year depending on how this goes but we dfinitely have author event on our calendar going forward; some events are large, some small. What is the best system for us….in your opinion? Thanks!

      Hi Sallyann,

      Being able to find your inventory quickly in the checkout process is really important. I recommend checking out Top 5 Bookstore POS Systems where you’ll find some good options that hopefully suit you a little better. Best of luck!

          Hi Jo-Anne,
          We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with the app! We’ve searched high and low and can’t seem to come up with any valid contact info either. Perhaps you have a statement you could refer to? Or possibly an email receipt that might have contact info? If you figure it out, please let us know so we can share the info with other readers as well.

            Hi Jo-Anne,

            I have been able to get in touch with the original developer/owner of this app.

            They were in turn able to get in touch with the new owners who apparently advised that they were no longer updating the app.

            ringitup warrants another look, merchantmaverick! I have been using it intermittently for a mobile business. I have modiied features for my use, very effectively. It is no longer cloud based, but saved on the ipad. Backing up to dropbox or via email is easy. Also, paypal is now supported (easily) and barcode reading is simplified. Todd will have to explain that though. I can also attest that Todd is still answering emails immediately, and the product is being updated regularly.

            Honestly, it is such a complete POS system I feel spoiled. Why are others so expensive? I am now opening a brick and mortar shop, and am reviewing software again. I have a complicated, low revenue business…and frankly most other software options don’t offer me much more than a larger bill. I have lots of one of a kind items, need photos of each, some consigned items, online shops and want to integrate my sales into Quickbooks. To actually address all those needs would exceed my revenue.

            I wish there was a community form of users to brainstorm work arounds. Todd said no one contributed so he didn’t bother. I wish I could define which fields HAD to be filled out in product entry. I tend to finish a bunch of items and realize I failed to enter quantity. I wish check out also beeped at me if I don’t follow procedure, but that is because I don’t use it daily.

            If you are a small business, do check out RingItUp.

              We began using this app in our courier business in 2012, since then we have expanded to other states in Australia and we still continue to use Ring It Up. This app has actually transformed our work place, there are no longer piles of invoices everywhere waiting to be manually entered. We are now a very happy paperless Company. Thanks to this app we save around 30 hours every week in manual invoice entering as we can import hundreds of invoices directly into our accounting system in just minutes. No more lost invoices, saves our drivers time on the road. Cannot recommend this app enough!

                Ring It Up is indeed great for small businesses, and Todd is great at support, he replies my emails within a few minutes which is amazing. A most unfortunately point is that there is currently a lack of inventory management (FIFO/WAC/LIFO) and its P&L reporting uses the initial cost of the item regardless of what was subsequently purchased in the Purchase Orders. I loved the interface, and the ease of adding sales, payments, purchase orders but the unfortunately the above makes P&L calculations vastly inaccurate, which is why I’m only giving 2 stars. Hopefully once proper inventory management has been included i will be back to use this great looking app!

                  Hi Clare,

                  Great review, thank you. I’m looking at using RingItUp for a small business, and you’ve thoroughly explained all the pros and cons and given me a list of things to look out for on their next update (or even perhaps since this was published!).

                  Cheers!
