How Do POS Terminals Help Food Stalls Compete In The Digital Age?


Recently, a growing number of countries are relaxing entry requirements for COVID-19 prevention. For example, the Thai Government has indicated that international passengers arriving in Thailand do not need to show proof of vaccination or negative nucleic acid. It is really good news for night market enthusiasts worldwide. At the same time, for stall owners, how to make your stall stand out in the fierce competitive night market? Selecting a suitable POS as your partner is of great importance.

There are a number of stalls running different businesses in every night market. No matter what business the stall owners run, they all meet similar challenges to deal with payment acceptance problems.

POS terminal for stall

Narrow stall space. In the night market, the stalls are usually packed close together. Each stall can only accommodate 1-2 people at most, and there isn’t enough space to place a bulky desktop cash register.

Diverse payment needs. In night fairs, especially night fairs in popular tourist cities, the main customer groups facing the stalls are tourists from all over the world, who have different payment habits.

Hard to charge. Many stalls are temporary where there may be no power connection. Even some owners set up the stalls just out of their private cars and thus it’s harder for them to find a place to charge their POS terminals.

From the challenges faced by stall owners mentioned above, we can infer that the POS terminal most suitable for night market stalls should have the following characteristics.

Compact and space-efficient. The POS terminals used at stalls should be compact and space-saving. Not only do bulky terminals take up too much space on the desktop, but they're also hard to move around.

Satisfy all payments. To meet the different demands of customers from all over the world, suitable Point-of-Sale terminals are thought to be able to offer diverse options. The more payment methods the POS can offer, the payment-acceptance efficiency is higher.

Large-capacity battery. Unlike ordinary physical stores, the electricity environment of stalls may be not very satisfactory, so the stall owners have better choose a POS terminal equipped with a large-capacity battery to ensure a long enough use time.

Full connectivity. The signal tends to get weak in crowded places, and therefore a smooth user experience should be ensured by full communications.
