You can buy QuickBooks Point of Sale compatible hardware at our Store

People often ask if their existing POS hardware will work with the QuickBooks POS software. We’ve discussed the requirements for the computer system previously so here I’ll cover the other hardware. Keep in mind that this is not an all inclusive list. What that means is that hardware listed here has been tested by Intuit and found to be compatible with the QuickBooks POS program.  Other hardware may work as well, it simply has not been tested. Just because it is not on this list does not mean that it won’t work, only that it MAY not work.

This list pertains to QuickBooks Point of Sale 10 but we know it is valid for version 9 and probably others as well.
