Lightspeed offers the hardware required for a retail outlet as part of two bundles.
The first bundle is designed to run with the iPad tablets and the Lightspeed iOS app. It includes wireless hardware comprising:
- A cash drawer
- LAN receipt printer
- Bluetooth scanner
The iPad is not included.
The second bundle caters to desktop use and includes a:
- USB receipt prints
- Cash drawer
- USB barcode scanner
Lightspeed also offers individual hardware if not all items are required.
When it comes to compatibility with other hardware brands, Lightspeed notes the following:
“There are ideal hardware setups that we recommend for use with Lightspeed Retail – We sell and support the hardware listed on this page
. Not all hardware that you can use is necessarily built to serve as point of sale hardware or work in a retail environment, which likely means we do not support it. For anything not listed on this page, please consult our support page or speak with one of our specialists.”
In essence that’s a very complicated way of Lightspeed saying they cannot guarantee other hardware will be compatible.
