Can I turn my iPad into a cash register?

Merchants can use either a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone—any device with internet connectivity. Many retailers and restaurateurs opt to use tablets, like an iPad, with a stand that turns them into a countertop device. The advantage of this setup is in its inherent flexibility. So whether you have your own or use a Lightspeed iPad, you'll have everything you need to create a personalized experience for your customers right in the palm of your hand. They can request more information about a product or menu item, make payments and join your loyalty program on the spot thanks to a mobile, connected workflow.
