What is the SAM4s SPS-500 Cash Register Series?

SAM4s SPS-520R Cash Register
The SAM4s SPS-500 series Cash Register including models:

The 500 series from SAM4s is one of the best if not the best selling cash registers on the market today. People always want to know what the difference are between the different models. Below is the explanation

  • The R in the model number indicates a raised keyboard. This style of tactile keyboard in most often asscoitated to retail stores.
  • The F in the model number tells you the model features a flat keyboard designed for food service.
  • A 520 has both a receipt and journal printer and uses 2.25″ thermal paper
  • A 530 has only one printer which uses 3 1/8″ thermal paper designed for a guest check or large receipt
So to recap R stands for raised and is for retail, F is for flat and is for restaurant. The SPS 520 has two on-board printers, and the SAM4s SPS 530 a large 3 1/8th" thermal single station printer.

Hope that helps.

SAM4s ER-265 Cash Register Review

SAM4s ER-265
 The SAM4s ER-265 Cash Register is loaded with features and in it’s price range is a great value.

This is a great little machine. I do not recommend where you will be doing a large amount of 10 key entry because of the flat restaurant style keyboard. If you use preset buttons it is a killer machine! Very small and low profile. If you have a busy liquor store or gas station probably not the machine and you should step up a few models.

I see this machine working best in counter service restaurant, Bars, Night Clubs, Snack Bars, fairs, sports arenas and more. Best place to buy the SAM4s ER-265 Cash Register

  • Flat, Spill-Resistant Keyboard
  • Fast Thermal Printer
  • 15 Department Keys
  • 1,000 PLUs
  • Automatic Tax Calculation
  • Real Time Clock – Hourly Sales Reporting
  • Financial and Cash In Drawer Reports

Low-Cost, Entry-Level 7" Graphic Display Pole Display for SAM4s Cash Registers now available

Almost all of the SAM4s Cash Registers can interface to the new graphical display that allows you to advertise while displaying the customer their sale.  The display will rotate a series of end-user uploaded images on 2/3rd of the display while the remaining 1/3 is showing the sale. See the above example. This display connects to the cash register through serial port with the supplied cable. You will have to program the register to work with the display. This works with the following registers
  • ER-285M
  • ER-380M
  • ER-390M
  • ER-5115II
  • ER-650 Series
  • ER-5200M Series
  • SER-7000 Series
  • SPS-2000
  • SPS-500 Series Hybrid ECRs
This display allows you to run a series of jpg images from the SD card provided. Promote specials, suggest add-ons. Like popular drive-thru order conformation boards, display the entire order for confirmation. Promotes accuracy; reduces fraud. You can see this for sale at the SAM4s Cash Register Super Store

Liquor Store Cash Registers

We sell cash registers all over North America and three of the registers that we install in Liquor Stores more then any other makes and models are:

SAM4s SPS-520 Cash Register

SAM4s ER-285M Cash Register

SAM4s ER-650R Cash Register

There are several reasons these registers are so popular in liquor stores. First off is cost compared to the number of features you get. Second is the easy set up and programming of any opfthe three of them. Third is the great support available. Fourth would be the wide amount of affordable options and add ons for these registers.

The SAM4s SPS-520 is the more sophisicated of the three listed. The SAM4s SPS-520 has several great features that set it apart. First is a built in 7" color touch screen, on board printers, keyboard port, USB port, menu driven programming and even more.

The least expensive but with a huge bang for your buck is the SAM4s ER-285M Register. It is a tiny machine but it comes standard with 10,000 UPC's, serial port, SD card Slot and free upload download software. All this for around $300.00

The SAM4s ER-650R is right in the middle. The ER-650R has a better display the the ER-285M, also includes 2 serial ports, lead through menu driven programming and reporting, memory expansion slots and more!

All three of the above cash register can integrate to Credit Card Payments and Gift Card Payments. All three can interface to a computer and all three feature thermal paper printers.

Check them out, you won't be sorry.

SAM4s ER-650 in the US Virgin Islands

The other day I sold and shipped a few SAM4s ER-650 Cash Registers to a resort in the US Virgin Islands. Talk about a delivery I would rather make in person!

The ER-650 is so easy to use that we do ship them all over and end-users are able to configure them on their own or with limited help.

There is not a machine in it's class that can hold a candle to the SAM4s ER-650 or 650R

Can my SAM4s Cash Register also be a credit card terminal?

I get this question all the time “Can my SAM4s cash register process credit cards?” The answer is yes it can. If you have a good SAM4s commercial grade cash register then you can add a Datacap device to it and turn your cash register into a credit card terminal.

When you add a Datacap to your SAM4s Cash Register it makes credit card transactions much more secure, faster, and with fewer errors. The Datacap also will allow your cash register to accept your own private label Gift Card program which is Money in the Bank!

Datacap devices are the only product that allow cash registers to become credit card terminals that I'm aware of. Beware of someone telling you your cash register can interface to a standalone credit card terminal because they do not know what they are talking about and just telling you anything so you will sign the contract!
