Use your phone as a cash register in your hospitality business

Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly common in the hospitality industry to use a phone as a cash register. The use of modern technologies allows you to transform your mobile phone into a payment terminal. This offers many benefits for hospitality entrepreneurs.

Hospitality System Mr. Winston also offers the possibility, in collaboration with our partners, to use phones as cash registers in your establishment. In this blog post, we will discuss the various advantages, how the application works, and how you can implement it in your hospitality business.

No investment in expensive cash registers

One of the biggest advantages of using your mobile phone as a cash register is that you don’t have to invest in expensive cash registers. Traditional cash registers can be quite costly, especially for small hospitality businesses. By using a mobile phone as a cash register, you save on the costs of expensive hardware.

Faster transactions

Using mobile phones as cash registers also enables faster transactions. This is because most people always have their mobile phones with them. As a result, customers can pay immediately after receiving their order. This reduces waiting time at the cash register and ensures a faster flow of guests. It’s ideal for hospitality establishments with quick turnover.


Using mobile phones as cash registers also provides more flexibility for hospitality entrepreneurs. You can accept payments at different locations without the need for a fixed cash register. This is especially useful for food trucks and other mobile hospitality businesses operating in different locations. It’s also a great solution for hospitality establishments with limited space for hardware.


In addition to saving costs on expensive cash registers, using mobile phones as cash registers also saves costs in other areas. You don’t have to pay for the purchase or rental of a traditional cash register. Moreover, transaction fees are often lower for mobile payments than for traditional cash registers.

Ease of use

You might be concerned that such modern technology is difficult and complicated, but that is not the case at all. Your staff can quickly familiarize themselves with it and start accepting payments with their phones right away.

How it works

The steps to getting paid with your phone are very easy. First, you need a subscription with POS Mr. Winston. This can be done with the cheapest package.

Next, we will connect your POS to one of our partners, enabling your phone to be used as a payment terminal.

Once the phones are set up, you can start immediately! Enter the amount on the phone. The customer holds their debit card or phone against your phone. You receive the payment in no time!

Can my phone accept all card payments?

With a phone transformed into a cash register, payments can be accepted from all cards that support contactless payments, including Pay, Maestro, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and more.
