Sharp Cash Registers

It has been awhile since Sharp has introduced any new Cash Registers at least in the commercial line up. The last ones released were the UP-820F and the UP-820N and both are great machines. The Sharp ER-A320 is still the work horse of the Sharp line up. Built like a tank and easy to use can't go wrong with that!

Can a Sharp Cash Register interface to a credit card payments

We get this question about Sharp Cash Registers all the time. The answer is both yes and no. If you have a good commercial grade Sharp cash register then chances are you could install a Datacap Twin Tran to it and turn your register into a credit card terminal too. If you Sharp Cash Register has the letter XE in the Model Number that NO there is nothing you can do.

When you install a Datacap on a Commercial Sharp Cash Register it makes credit card transactions much more secure, faster, and with fewer errors. The Datacap may also your cash register to accept your own private label Gift Card program which is Money in the Bank in my book!

At this time I’m only aware of one product that allow cash registers to become credit card terminals and that is the Datacap devices. If someone tells you your cash register can interface to a standalone credit card terminal they do not know what they are talking about.
