The EasyEats Point of Sale (POS) is designed to be flexible for a customer's needs. Choose from a selection of off the shelf hardware or reuse existing hardware.
At its core, the EasyEats system requires an Android tablet for the POS (running EasyEats' cash register app). In addition, all outstanding orders are displayed on an order queue device, which can be anything with a modern web browser.
The options below are our recommendations for new equipment.

Credit Card Reader & Other Hardware
A credit card reader is needed to process payments at the window. If you are using SumUp to process payments, please purchase the reader below.
SumUp Card Reader "SumUp Plus"
Make sure you choose "SumUp Plus Card Reader". EasyEats recommends buying a second card reader as a backup in case the first is ever misplaced. You might consider it cheap insurance to keep your operation running smoothly.Link to SumUp
Keep all your devices running, even when you have temporary power issues. An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a temporary battery backup that will smooth over generator glitches or other electricity issues.Link to Amazon
A dedicated hotspot device is recommended due to its superior reception and connectivity. A phone hotspot will work, but our experience has been that a phone hotspot comes with increased logistical and connectivity issues. Talk to your cellular provider about recommendations for your network and region.
