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 most importantly, 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) functionalities. Among these core features include our advanced discount and promotion management, cloud-based sales tracking and inventory management

One merchant who benefitted from this plan is Restoran Foong Yet, a Chinese restaurant located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Being a longstanding restaurant that spans 70 years of history of serving seafood dishes alongside traditional Hokkien delicacies, its high patronage of loyal foot traffic is no surprise, especially during special seasons like the Chinese New Year.

Run by Poh Lum and Li Keng, they sought to modernise its operation to maintain good and efficient customer service while having productive back-end management. Now equipped with the QashierX1 under the Essential plan, many manual-based processes are now streamlined with automation features such as inventory management, pricing updates, and QR code ordering. Moreover with integrated payments, the business is ensured to accept the correct payment amount with minimal human errors.

Another Essential plan merchant is Nuat Thai Services Inc (Nuat Thai Foot & Body Massage), a renowned massage parlour. 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. 

Leveraging the Qashier Essential Plan, Nuat Thai Services manages to overcome these challenges and improve accuracy and efficiency in commission tracking through Qashier’s commission tracking system. That way, their therapists’ payouts are effectively managed, ensuring fair compensation and streamlined operations.

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. In terms of capacity, it allows merchants to record up to 500 customer databases in the system.  It also has a limit of 1,000 products you can register within your inventory.

Next, let’s explore what you receive with a Growth plan subscription.


The Growth Plan includes all features in the Essential Plan, with additional advanced features and support that help companies thrive. 

To begin with, you can add as many customer databases 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.

Fabs Malaysia is a shoppable beauty warehouse that mostly sells in-trend K-beauty and skincare products. One of their main challenges is unifying reports, tackling operational issues, and monitoring staff commissions. 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.

The Growth Plan also offers the flexibility to accommodate your evolving needs and requirements with seamless integration into your existing systems. With that being said, this plan comes with a higher price tag, which may be more suitable for businesses with higher budgets.

For an overview and comparison of the two plans, here’s a breakdown of their features:

Final thoughts

For those looking to expand their operations, the Growth plan builds upon the Essential plan. You get unlimited product uploads, unlimited customer profile creation, and more.
