Do you have experience using the SquareUp register for a business that does a hundred or more transactions a day? Do you like it?
Would you recommend any of the alternatives? Sail? Intuit? [more inside]

I was asked to recommend a software/hardware solution that would enable our local farmers market to allow patrons to visit different vendor tables, choose their items and pay at a central pay station. Currently, patrons get handed a slip and present a number of slips at the pay station. I look to you, oh crowd, as this area of technology is not my strong suit.

Mom's opening a brick and mortar store and we're shopping for point-of-sale software. We're looking for a system that will accept credit cards and EBT (basically foodstamps on a debit card) and haven't bought any of our computer hardware yet. So, feel free to mention software for Mac or PC. Difficulty: Need support for random weights/prices. [more inside]

Does anyone have suggestions for a good typeface for a point-of-sale receipt printer?
I have a project to design messages printed on the bottom of a cash register receipt. These are B&W thermal printers, about 200-250 DPI. The text is 6-12 points. We're going primarily for readability and cleanliness and we're happy to pay for quality.
Before we go with what we already have (Verdana, Arial, etc.), we'd love suggestions for what might be better.

A random person in a city I don't live in called me and said he was seeing two charges for $155 each on his bank statement, and his bank says I'm the party that the payments were made to. What kind of scam is this, how did I get involved, and what's my responsibility? [more inside]

If retail space is really lorded over by bean counters, why do big boxes build so many checkouts that sit unused? On the morning after Thanksgiving, the north Dallas Super Target I went in briefly only had 9 out of 24 registers open. Why do they build them this way? Has anyone ever seen 90%+ of them open?
