Selling your products at markets, fairs, and festivals is a great way to get your online business into the offline world.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect sales event, and got your market booth game on lock, you’re ready for IRL retail sales, right? Wrong. To make your (and your customers’) offline sales experience run as smoothly as possible, it’s important to remember all of the odds and ends you’ll need to actually track your sales. How will your customer pay in real life? Will you accept credit and debit cards? Are your products barcoded and do you have your SKUs straight?
Depending on what payment methods you’re accepting, and how you track your inventory, you may have different hardware needs for selling your products. So, before getting started selecting hardware for your booth or table, it’s important to figure out your needs.
