PC & laptop

Running your shop in your browser on your PC or Laptop is the cheapest and most flexible option. Usb barcode scanners are natively supported. Receipts can be printed on any thermal or inkjet printer compatible with your web browser.

Extra hardware such as weighting scales or ESC/POS printers can be used with the PosBox

iPad or Android tablet

Tablets take a lot less space, their touchscreens are a joy to use. And they are light enough to be freely moved around your shop. Or you can put them in a nice stand and secure them on your front desk.

Of all stands and tablets we recommend the iPad Air 2 and the Heckler Design Windfall Stand.

Bluetooth barcode scanners and network receipt printers are supported natively, USB barcode scanners, printers, etc. are supported with the PosBox.

Industrial touchscreen

Hard to break and steal, industrial touchscreens are the perfect solution for shops and restaurants with a high volume of staff and customers. Odoo POS on industrial touchscreens is compatible with the same peripherals as Laptops & PCs.

What is the PosBox?

The posbox is a small device that allows you to use the same industry standard USB POS peripherals on every device (PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android ). Not only does it makes the setup easier, it actually lowers your costs.


Easy to setup

Plug your peripherals to the PosBox, connect it to your local network, and you are done. Restart your Odoo POS, and your peripherals are ready to use.


Open source hardware

The PosBox is based on the Raspberry-Pi platform and is made of OpenSource Software and Hardware. You can buy it from us, or you can build your own.


Lower your costs

The downside of iPads and Android tablets as POS device is that lacking USB connections, you need to buy specific Apple-certified bluetooth peripherals. Those are much more expensive than their industry-standard USB equivalent. By letting you use those less expensive peripherals with a Tablet, your costs are greatly reduced.
