This term refers to the use of payment cards at a retail location (point of sale). The payment information is captured either on paper vouchers or by electronic terminals, which, in some cases, are designed to also transmit the information (in which case the arrangement may be referred to as "electronic funds transfer at point of sale" (EFTPOS)).

The point of sale (POS) is the time and place where a retail transaction is completed. It is the point at which a customer makes a payment to the merchant in exchange for goods or after provision of a service. At the point of sale, the merchant would prepare an invoice for the customer (which may be a cash register printout) or otherwise calculate the amount owed by the customer and provide options for the customer to make payment. After receiving payment, the merchant will also normally issue a receipt for the transaction. Usually the receipt is printed, but it is increasingly being dispensed electronically.
