Charity POS For Events & Short-term Leases

An Event POS system that can go wherever you like… for as long as you like

Sometimes an opportunity presents itself, be it a pop-up shop, a carnival or a festival. A reliable and safe way of handling transactions and taking money is required, but it doesn’t make sense to commit to a long-term contract or buy a charity EPOS outright.

Well Wil-U offers its POS on short-term loans. It has the facilities and flexibility you need, whether you are new to Wil-U or adding it to your existing estate for a short-term, you get all of the Wil-U POS functionality without the long-term commitment or large outlay.

Oh, and did we mention you can even sign-up new Gift Aid donors and sell Gift-Aided stock?

Why Wil-U POS is suitable for Events

Light and Portable

Light and Portable

Wil-U POS is a fully functioning tablet-based EPOS solution. Because it uses tablet it is light, portable and has a low power requirement. If you aren’t taking cash, you don’t need a cash drawer making it even lighter.

It’s easy to lock up or pick up and take it away with you.

Wireless connectivity

Connectivity is always key especially if you are taking card payments. Wil-U POS operates wirelessly and can be linked to remote broadband services without the need for cables. If need be, it can be tethered to a 4G device and still maintain full functionality.

Just because it is a short-term arrangement why compromise?

Volunteers picked up using the system within five minutes – that’s a testament to how easy it is to use! Having never had an EPOS solution before, it was big news for us. There was some hesitation from the older volunteers at first but they’ve taken to it like a duck to water!
