Ease of Use
Bindo is an intuitive iPad based solution, with a clean and simple interface. It takes under 10 minutes to get used to the controls, and although there are over 300 features, it doesn’t feel cluttered or complicated to get the hang of. Adding new items is as easy as scanning in the code and entering a price. Extra features which make Bindo user friendly include the ability to create a product matrix where you can include multiple styles or sizes of the same product, as well as shortcutting favorite products to the register dashboard.
Bindo POS provides a number of ways to troubleshoot if you need help. A well-stocked library of articles and video tutorials can be found from the website, as well as an FAQ section. The customer testimonials are also useful, especially as they are categorized by industry to help you see exactly how Bindo Point of Sale can work for your business.
If you need to speak to a customer service representative you can use the online contact form or call one of the three global offices directly. You can also use the live chat feature during business hours.
Pricing and Payment Processing
Bindo offers a 14 day free trial of their software, which does not require you to enter any credit card details and therefore involves no commitment. After this, Bindo will assign a dedicated expert to create a personal quote based on your business needs. The prices will vary depending on how many items/SKUs you expect to need in your store, and start from around $59 per month for under 50 SKUs.
Credit card fees will be charged separately from this, and are 2.49% + $0.15 for every swiped transaction, and 3.49% + $0.15 for transactions which you key in manually. Bindo calls themselves ‘processor agnostic’ and they guarantee integration of whichever processor you choose within 24 hours. Bindo is also NFC ready, which means you can accept mobile payments like Apple Pay, and EMV capable for chip cards. They include a free EMV credit card reader on sign up.
As well as the 14 day free trial, Bindo has a no contract policy which means you can cancel at any time and decide month to month whether they are the right all in one eCommerce solution for you. At the end of the trial, you will be assigned a dedicated staff member to discuss your business needs, including size of store, hardware requirements and eCommerce features. They will then provide you with an exact quote.
