Running a liquor store is a lot of work — from keeping track of how many bottles and cases are in your inventory to ensuring that customers are of legal drinking age. No matter the size of your business, using the right hardware and software can improve efficiency, and over time, sales! Learn how a full point of sale system can help your liquor store.
POS System Age Verification
One of the most important tasks for any business selling alcohol is to verify customers’ ages. If an employee makes a mistake and provides alcohol to someone who is underage, your business is at risk of fines — or even losing its license. And with fake IDs being more common than ever, you don’t want your store to take the fall for something that could be prevented with a single swipe.
Most liquor store owners who purchase our point of sale system upgrade to an ID scanner. Being able to scan and verify IDs helps businesses immediately recognize whether someone is under 21 years of age or using fake identification.
Mix and Match Bottle Pricing
Does your liquor store run special promotions that include bottles of different brands and sizes? A point of sale system allows business owners to apply discounts to the entire inventory, individual products, or even a couple of items specifically when they are paired together.
Customization of promotions makes it easier to apply discounts at checkout, rather than having to manually enter a code for each customer in line. The POS system automatically knows which discounts to apply to a transaction as soon as applicable items are scanned — even in mix and match scenarios.
Case Break Inventory Tracking
Rather than manually track alcohol by the case, bottle, or six-pack, a POS system has the capability to automatically account for case breaks. Our software’s inventory system knows to break a case into individual bottles for sale — whether it’s liquor, wine, or beer.
Additionally, the inventory system will keep track of what’s on your shelves and give you up-to-date counts. You can even set your POS to place an automatic order when a product hits a certain inventory number. For example, when you’re down to 20 bottles of your top-selling brand of whiskey, your system could be set to order five more cases. These inventory and order amounts are completely customizable — and they check another item off your to-do list.
