A point of sale for
every kind of business.

We believe that commerce belongs to everyone. To the entrepreneurs who realize their dreams of starting a business; to the storefronts and restaurants that project new perspectives onto our streets; to the communities that are shaped by those businesses.

Retailers and restaurateurs make our lives more enjoyable. At Lightspeed, we want to make their work more enjoyable. That’s why we make great point of sale products for both retail stores and restaurants. Our tools are designed around the realities of day-to-day management so that they can be used by anyone, with any size of business.

With the right technology, business owners can sell more, make their customers happier, and actually make the world a better place.

  • Instant Intelligence

    You’ll know everything that’s happening in your business, with real-time data and visuals.

  • Thoughtful Design

    Intuitive, easy to use, tools that simplify your business — and look good while doing it.

  • Selling Anywhere

    Mobile devices and cloud connectivity give you freedom from the counter. Work on your own terms.

“We started Lightspeed because we weren’t satisfied with the status quo. You shouldn’t be either. It’s not enough for a point of sale to just accept transactions and deliver receipts; it should make your life easier, and your customers happier. That philosophy runs through everything that we do.”
— Dax Dasilva, Founder and CEO
