Point Of Sale

Point Of SalePoint Of Sale Displays

Point of sale is in every shop and restaurant in the UK.

The most common use of POS (point of sale displays) is within the retail  and hospitality industries.  Talking to a local graphic design agency will be wise for getting the best one.

Any time you go into a shop, you will see them, any shop.  

Capturing customers attention whilst in a busy shopping centre is difficult with busy crowds.  

Music, lights and a million other adverts/displays coming into eyesight; getting customers to stop for 2-3 seconds is all that is needed.

Graphic designers can design and produce them for shops, manufacturers and other re-sellers that are looking to capture retails customers attention.

Where Are POS?

Point of sale is where you make your payment, either for the dinner you have just finished, or the watch you are about to purchase.

Graphic designers can help with creating displays around you point of sale areas.

Impulse purchase is a big thing, especially in supermarkets.

Any time you approach the checkout area in the supermarket, there is normally a funnelling area whereby low cost items such as sweets, chocolate, nuts, chewing gum.  This is so that while you are waiting, you may well impulse buy and spend that extra £1.00 that you would not have before.

Point Of Sale On Websites

Every e-commerce website has a point of sale area, where you go to make your payment for your goods.

Very often (like in the supermarkets) companies will try to upsell additional products before you do your final checkout.

A great example of this would be the McDonalds app.

When you select what food and beverages you want, the app before taking you to the payment complete screen will ask you if you want something else.  This could be a McFlurry or an apple pie, or perhaps something you have ordered in the past.

Digital point of sale is increasing since more and more of our buying is done online rather than in physical shops.

What Point Of Sale Displays Are Used For

Display Stands

They can be used to ‘spruce’ up the display (backdrop displays, light boxes, bright coloured graphics) to try and ensure that your display stands out from all the background noise.  Point of sale stands can be used to market a multitude of products:

  • Sun glasses
  • Food/beverage products (sweets etc.)
  • Clothes
  • DVD’s
  • Watches

Any product that is small and able to fit onto a table would be suitable for POS.  

That means around 3,000 retail products. Many businesses (such as jewellery shops for example) use very particular sorts of equipment.  

Shops like Beaverbrooks use them to display their watches.  Sweet shops or music shops like HMV would use them to display their products.

Selfridges are known for their elaborate window scenes.

Therefore POS equipment may be fashioned out of products such as metal, glass, expensive wood and decorated with custom lighting and interior decoration (such as fine cloths or fur).

POS equipment is also used on exhibition stands to showcase products and in the same way to draw attention to brochures, product material and even the products themselves.  Exhibition stand designers can help with selecting the right POS display for your application.
