Is Stripe Terminal a POS (point-of-sale)? Is it an out of the box solution?

Stripe Terminal is not an out of the box Point of Sale (POS) solution. Terminal enables you to integrate Stripe payments into your existing in-person checkout flow, or build in-person payments into your native mobile or web-based point of sale application.

Terminal requires programming experience with Javascript, iOS, Android or server-driven depending on the integration mode you choose.

If you’re comfortable with software development, please check out our other resources and docs.

We also partner with platforms that provide no-code POS solutions, and recommend reviewing these options before you purchase a Terminal Reader.
