The Poynt 5 Smart Terminal is very similar in function to THE POYNT SMART TERMINAL. It, however, has a few other characteristics that distinguish it from the PST. The Poynt 5 has all the required portable features that enable you to set up or take your Point of Sale wherever you choose. There’s quite a handful of mobile user-friendly features that makes the Poynt 5 Smart Terminal everyone’s favorite. It is a fast, lightweight POS device that fits perfectly in your pocket.
Additionally, whether you are the business-on-the-go type or prefer the in-aisle or tableside approach, the Poynt 5 payment solution features an app store option that delivers everything you need to run your business or payment services successfully -- from detailed accounting solutions to inventory management apps, and more!.
The Poynt Smart Terminal and the Poynt 5 are both built to provide up to 5 to 6 hours of battery life, depending on usage.
Battery usage varies depending on several different factors including transaction volume, printer usage, screen brightness, device sleep settings, etc. With high transaction volume merchants, especially those Poynt Smart Terminal users who opt to frequently print receipts while off-dock, battery life will deplete quicker.
You can see the battery status on the top right hand side of the screen.
The terminal is mobile and can move around your store and out side. If you want to take orders while customers are waiting in line, take payments from curbside pickup or take it to the storeroom to do inventory you can do that. With a 3G/4G device, you can even take it on deliveries or to the farmer’s market.
At POYNT 5 you have options to Text message and Email the receipt to customers as the focused on design was size in order to make it convenient to move it around. (POYNT 5 doses not have a printer)
