Essential vs Growth: Which Qashier plan is right for your business?

So you’re ready to take your business to new heights with a Qashier POS system. Qashier offers two different paid plans: the Essential Plan and Growth Plan. To determine which one is right for your business, consider the size of your business, the specific features you require, and of course your budget. Let’s compare the two plans to help you make an informed decision.


The Essential Plan is designed for small businesses and startups that require basic POS (Point of Sale) functionality without the added complexity of advanced features. This plan includes core POS features such as our advanced discount and promotion feature, cloud-based sales tracking and inventory management

Qashier client, La Casa Bianca in the Philippines, has successfully leveraged our smart POS solution to increase operations. The popular restaurant and hotel faced operational challenges as the owners juggled the demands of their day jobs while managing their businesses. Going through paperwork for sales and inventory tracking took time and effort. 

To address this pain point, they turned to Qashier’s cloud-based system, which enabled them to access their reports quickly and efficiently. By also remotely assessing QashierHQ, the merchant back office portal, the owners could focus on their day jobs while still effectively managing their restaurant and hotel remotely via any internet browser, maintaining streamlined business operations, while ensuring a steady income.

Merchants can also record top-performing employees and their commissions with the employee management tool.  It also has unlimited transactions for popular payment methods, including cash, cards, and mobile payments. As with all plans, the essential comes with easy sign-up, access to Qashier’s customer support, and lifetime free software updates. 

The Essential Plan is budget-friendly, making it an ideal choice for small businesses and startups. With a focus on core POS features, the Essential Plan is user-friendly and straightforward, allowing for quick and efficient implementation. 

For instance, just look at another Qashier PH client Nuat Thai Services Inc (Nuat Thai Foot & Body Massage), a renowned provider of massage services. Their branch in Eastwood City Park, Quezon City faced challenges in monitoring the commissions for their junior and senior therapists, as they relied on a manual, paper-based system to track the services rendered by each therapist, a process susceptible to human error. 

The branch located at Eastwood City Park, Quezon City leveraged the Qashier Essential Plan to overcome these challenges and improve accuracy and efficiency in commission tracking. By implementing Qashier’s commission tracking system they effectively managed their therapists’ payouts, ensuring fair compensation and streamlined operations.

Unlike the Growth plan, this plan only allows merchants to record up to 500 customers in the system.  It also has a limit of 1,000 products you can register within your inventory. Let’s shine a light on what you receive with a Growth plan subscription.


The Growth Plan includes all features of the Essential Plan and more. This plan offers more advanced features and additional support to help companies to thrive. 

It lets you add unlimited customer details to create customisable promotions for better customer relationship management.  We’ve bundled our advanced analytics and reporting tools to gain deeper insights into your business’s performance. And, of course, you can access our inventory management and employee management features such as timecard and commission analytics.

As your business expands, the Growth Plan can accommodate your evolving needs and requirements, ensuring seamless integration with your existing systems. The Growth Plan is especially beneficial for companies with multiple outlets since the plan allows your business more than ten licenses per location. 

Here’s an example of how small chain businesses have leveraged the Growth plan to scale their operations. TonTon Prestige Corporation, a thriving multi-branch massage company, encountered difficulties unifying reports, tackling operational issues, and monitoring therapists’ commissions across various locations. 

Preparing for expansion next year, they sought a robust solution to streamline operations. By adopting Qashier, they’ve ensured precise inventory management, error-free commission tracking, and efficient use of customer data for potential repeat business. This decision has enhanced current operations and sets a solid foundation for future growth.

In short, the Growth Plan offers various advanced features that can help streamline your business processes, enhance customer engagement, and support growth. As your business expands, the Growth Plan can accommodate your evolving needs and requirements, ensuring seamless integration with your existing systems. However, the Growth Plan comes with a higher price tag, which may not be suitable for businesses with budget constraints.

For your convenience, here’s a breakdown of features for each plan:
