GoPago is a startup with a goal that’s rather modest: they want to kill the cash register. They’re going to do this with an offer for any interested merchants: they’ll send along a 4G-enabled tablet with GoPago software, card reader, cash box, and receipt printer for free. They’ll only be making money off of a 2.85% fee on credit card transactions. JPMorgan Chase is backing GoPago, so this isn’t just a fly-by-night company.

In particular, GoPago is competing with Square, which has been distributing their own free card readers and has been pushing the Square Register iPad app. Square card swipes are a bit cheaper at 2.75% per swipe compared to GoPago’s 2.85% per swipe, but GoPago is giving away the tablet and other physical materials for free as well. For businesses looking to easily accept credit cards and to make their business more flexible, GoPago could be an interesting option, though with Square’s recent deal to start processing payments for Starbucks, this may be a tricky field to penetrate.

While credit card readers like Square are targeted toward end users who may want to collect occasional credit card payments, for those who are looking to make the iPhone a major part of their retail business, Cashier Live is hoping to fill that void.

The app can transform the iPhone into a full point-of-sale device. Barcodes can be scanned with the camera to be added to an order. Receipts can be emailed to customers. Inventory can be managed with the app, and the app can be integrated with Milo to help keep track of inventory. Reports can be tracked with the Cashier Live website from any computer’s web browser. While cash and check payments can be handled through the app, adding a Linea Pro scanner can add credit card payments along with a traditional barcode scanner to the iPhone. This all works with the iPod touch as well. Cashier Live is free to download, and new users can sign up for a free 30-day trial to use the service.
