Sharp Cash Register Keyboard Covers

Don't put up with an old cloudy keyboard cover on your Sharp cash register. They are designed to be replaced after they have been beat up and well used. Replacing the keyboard cover will help keep your cashiers from making mistakes because they will be able to see the items on the keyboard again.

Here are some links to places that stock keyboard covers for Sharp cash registers

Buy a couple and save money on shipping and you will also have a spare in case of an emergency. Questions finding other parts for Sharp cash registers call us at 1-800-863-2274

Sharp ER-A347 cash register

Sharp ER-A347 cash register

Sharp ER-A347 cash register

The Sharp ER-A347 is an interesting machine for a couple good reasons. this register includes a software programming tool that uses an SD card to transfer the program to the register and back to the computer. Part of this program includes a Quickbook transfer tool allowing sales from the cash register to be interfaced with Quickbooks. This is also the only register that I know of that interfaces to a standalone credit card machine instead of using a Datacap or Pax like many other registers do.

You also will notice on this register it has a multi line display making task like programming and reporting a breeze compared to other makes and models.

If you need a simple cash register put this one on the top of your list. If you have questions regarding the Sharp ER-347 cash register or any other commercial grade register give us a call at 1-800-863-2274

Commercial grade Sharp cash registers

There are two great brands of commercial grade cash registers and they are SAM4s and Sharp. Both of these companies make cash registers designed for medium and higher volume stores and restaurants. In today's sluggish economy it is even more important then ever to maximise your profit and cut cost. Well cutting cost on your cash register system may save you a few bucks but it will cost you in profit. Why you ask? Well because a good cash register will do the following

  • Increase customer through put. You make a customer wait in line to long and they don't come back or the leave in the first place.
  • Commercial grade registers are capable of four sales tax rates. You may only have one today but revenue hungry states, counties and cities keep inventing new sales tax rates. You could end up charging two or maybe four rates in one transaction!
  • Interface credit card payments with your cash register reduces fraud, stops expensive ten key errors and speeds up lines!
  • A good cash register will produce detailed sales reports daily and monthly saving you expensive time compiling reports for sales taxes etc.
There are a lot more reason but those are some of the top. Here is a good place to buy a Sharp cash register however you should make sure and check out the SAM4s Cash Registers before you buy any of them. Need help then give us a call 1-800-863-2274

Sharp Cash Registers

sharp cash registers
There are quite a few different models and line of Sharp Cash Registers. First there is the consumer grade line up that are models that begin with XE and then you have the commercial grade line that are models beginning with ER or UP.

If you need support over the long run DO NOT buy an XE model. Yes you may save money but we hear from people nearly every day that can't use their XE model cash register and can't get Sharp to help them.

When you buy a commercial grade register from a dealer like our company you can get support from the dealer. It may or may not be free but a dealer can help you with tax rate changes, printer repairs and many other common problems. If you need help with a commercial grade Sharp cash register even if you did not buy from us we can support it for you. It would not be free however our techs know Sharp's very well and you can reach us at 1-800-863-2274 We specialize in interfacing cash registers to credit card payments with the the Datacap Twin Tran

Programming a Sharp Cash Register

Do you need help programming a cash register? Did your sales tax increase and you don't know how to change it? Well we can help but before you call please be aware that our support is not free? Everyday people call us that bough cash registers from big box stores and they don't know how to program them. They call us and become mad that we charge for our services. Why would any company support something for free that they did not sell? Does that make any sense at all? So if you don't mind paying for service give us a call and we will see if we can help. There are many cash registers in the big box stores that we CAN'T help with because we lack the manuals. Call us with the make and model and we will let you know right away if we can help. If your register model starts with XE then we probably can't help, if it starts with PCR we can't help.

Here is a small list of the registers we can support
  • All SAM4s registers
  • Most all Samsung cash registers
  • Sharp models that begin with ER, or UP such as Sharp ER-A520 or UP-700
On a daily basis we support Sharp Cash Registers as well as SAM4s Cash Registers. We also support add on products like the Datacap Twin Tran cash register credit card interface

You can reach us at 1-800-863-2274

Sharp cash register support after the sale

Make sure when you are looking for a new cash register that you think about service after the sale. I find the average life span for a good cash register 5 to  7 years depending on the working environment (That does not mean they all last 5 year plus) and I have seen many last 10+ no problem.

Your new register is something you will have for a long time over many different sales tax increases, numerous employees and managers. If you walk into a big box store and buy a register who is going to help you with it in the future? Every day I have people calling me to change a tax rate on a cheap cash register they bought at the big box store and they want me to tell them how to change the tax rate for free! NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, call the big box store you bought it from. So if support is important then buy from a real cash register dealer like us who supports the registers they sell and often at no cost (not all services and support is free anywhere)

There are only three commercial grade cash register brands in the US and probably Canada too. They are SAM4s, Sharp and Casio. Of those our favorite is SAM4s because of price and features, followed by Sharp and lastly Casio.

All three of the big three manufactures offer cash registers that interface to credit card payments with the Datacap Twin Tran, DVR, Kitchen Printers, PC's and more.

Give us a call at 1-800-863-2274 if you need help selecting and buying a new Sharp cash register.

The SAM4s SPS-520FT cash register is one of the most popular registers in the powerful SPS-500 series line up. The SPS-520FT like all the models of the 500 line features both a traditional cash register keyboard as well as a 7" color touch screen. When combined in one machine the keyboard and screen must make the best selling Hybrid cash register on the market.

This register serves a great niche market where so many business owners are being forced to buy a large expensive POS system find the SPS-500 series will do the job at a fraction of the cost. Not only is this option less expensive but you also won't miss the features that most of us really need. This machine will operate very well in table service, bars, fast food, cafeterias and many other food service operations.

One unique feature of the machine is the ability to interface the cash register to credit card payments while also adding a private label gift card system. This works by using the datacap TwinTran interface with the register.

Because of the large screen this register is very easy to program and use when compared to traditional cash registers. You do not need a back office computer for this system however you can add one as an option if you wish.
