 Frequently asked questions

Is Troly POS a good alternative to Vend?

Unquestionably. While they are indeed different applications, Troly offers a truly streamlined service. Troly’s POS is tailored towards wines, beers and spirits. The application was designed with “low volume, high quality sales” in mind. See Vend Pricing and Features.

Vend is a full-fledged POS and requires 3rd party systems (each with their cost) to process payments. It will not automate club sales and shipping work, and cannot be used with the fully featured Troly system.

Vend has some good features, but with Troly’s POS every single feature is truly outstanding.

Is Troly an alternative to ImPOS, PBSA or Retail Express?

Yes indeed. Troly is the lean and agile POS that so many in the industry have been longing for.

These systems (like many others) are a more traditional Point of Sale and require additional (dedicated) hardware. They come with a high upfront cost and do not have the portability offered by tablet computers.

With Troly’s POS, the experience is fresh, and it is kept simple. No bloated software, no time wasted navigating through unnecessary features, and a truly seamless user experience from start to finish. Troly’s POS is also far more budget-friendly than these competitors.

See PBSA POS, Retail Express and ImPOS.

Thoughts: Troly POS versus Square & PayPal?

Square and PayPal are famous industry offerings, and they’ve been around a long time. Their longevity shows they are doing a lot right. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t stark differences between that Troly gives to our clients, and what competitors do.

As a business, Square Payment is not a POS software but more of a payment processor, similar to PayPal. They offer many ways of processing payments, and also have one simple price point for all credit card payments of 1.9% (Square) and 2.7% (PayPal).

Troly is not a POS business, but a direct-sales manager. We help you capture sales from multiple channels (including POS), charge, pack and ship orders automatically in bulk.

Finally, regardless of how small your business is, you get our community-discounted rates to process payments and ship parcels.

Our unique offerings is what makes Troly’s POS special. Try Troly’s POS today for yourself, and you’re sure to see why it’s fantastic.
