Choosing Used Cash Registers And Other Equipment For Your New Business
As anyone who has recently started a new business can tell you, it takes a lot of capital to get up and running. From leasing a retail space, to stocking inventory, to buying equipment, costs add up in a hurry. That's why many business owners choose to buy some equipment used, with the idea that when they start turning a steady profit, they can start replacing the used equipment with new equipment. This is a smart business move, as it allows them to start operations right away, and then upgrade as money allows.
And believe it or not, most equipment necessary for starting a business can be bought used and nobody would ever realize it was used. For example, many businesses take very good care of the display shelves they use for inventory, which leaves them in near new condition when they are sold later on in "used" condition. In this case, the definition of "used" is closer to "pre-owned" than anything else, because the shelves haven't been used or abused. The same is often true of used cashregisters for sale and other POS (point of sale) equipment.
There are lots of choices when it comes to picking up second hand equipment and supplies for a new business. Live and online auctions are a popular choice for many business owners, as are websites like Amazon, Staples and Office Max. There are also lots of website businesses devoted to supplying new business owners with the equipment they need to start operations. Even local stores such as Office Depot might have information posted on their bulletin boards about used office equipment that people are trying to sell. A good place to start looking for equipment is in your local area, and then expanding to the Internet if necessary.
Or, another option is to check out the prices in both areas and then compare them. For example, if you are looking for used cash registers for sale, you might want to look both places - locally and online - before you buy anything. This way, you can compare model numbers, features and prices before you make a choice. But no matter from where you buy the equipment you need, know that you are making a good choice buying equipment that is pre-owned and that still has a lot of life left in it.

Why a Point of Sale Computer System is Better Than a Cash Register For a Retail Business
By Mark T Fletcher
The first cash register in the world was invented by a chap called James Ritty in 1879 to help stop employees from stealing his takings. Called the Ritty Model 1, this cash register was based on technology observed for counting the revolutions of the propeller on a steamship. The device was ultimately patented in 1883.
