SQUARE POS is a very good terminal for processing credit/debit transactions, but does not allow to install other Apps from google play. Having a low cost Android POS will allow small stores such as restaurants and shops to install and use all the apps they need in a single POS terminal, while using SQUARE to process credit/debit transactions and print receipts and reports. It also has the functionality of accepting fix amount donations, tips and payments.
