What is NexKIOSK?
NexKIOSK lets you set up a point of sale in your space in a few minutes. Your customers can purchase products on a self-service basis through the Kiosk mode of the app. They can also be checked out by staff through the ePOS mode of the app. Either way, purchases are automatically processed in Nexudus and you can keep track of them through the Admin Panel.
Customer purchases can be added to the customer's next invoice or paid upfront using one of the supported card payment gateways (Zettle or Square).
For example, if you enable and use NexKIOSK in two locations, you will be charged $/£/€150 per month.
How NexKIOSK Works
NexKIOSK can be used to sell any product you have in your Nexudus inventory in a quick and easy way. Here are two examples:
Cafeterias & Honesty Bars
Set up a cafeteria or an honesty bar in a couple of minutes without needing to set up any complex checkout equipment. All you need is an iOS tablet and the NexKIOSK app. Customers can help themselves and add what they took to their next invoice.
You can also choose to allow card payments that require a card reader from one of the two payment providers compatible with NexKIOSK.
Let your customers purchase passes, booking credits or any other access-based product autonomously with NexKIOSK. Cut down the need for staff to process this type of request and allow customers to purchase access to your space and its amenities in a few taps on the app.
NexKIOSK has two modes: ePOS and Kiosk. ePOS is designed for Nexudus admin users. Kiosk mode is designed for your customers.
ePOS mode lets you use your tablet as a staffed checkout that is directly linked to your Nexudus account.
It is essentially an extension of your Admin Panel that lets you sell products, process customer payments, and access invoices.
Kiosk mode lets your customers make purchases via the app and check themselves out by adding their purchases to their next invoice or paying upfront with credit cards.
NexKIOSK Payment Method
NexKIOSK purchases can be paid on the spot with one of two integrated card payment gateways. The charges can also be added to the customer's next invoice.
Next Invoice Payment
This payment method is the default method available. Customers are billed for their purchases and pay for them via their next invoice.
You can disable this payment option in Kiosk mode via the NexKIOSK settings page on the Admin Panel.
You can pair NexKIOSK with Square, Stripe or Zettle card readers to process customer card payments. Square is only available in ePOS mode. Zettle is available in both ePOS and Kiosk mode.
