In a lot of ways the art market is a world unto itself, a tight-knit community of artists, critics, dealers, and art appreciators. In others though, it’s like any other industry: a business with producers, consumers, and the people in between.
If you occupy the latter camp as an art gallery, consigner, or auction house, then like any other business owner who relies on sales you need the right tools to do your job right. That means finding a great point of sale system for art galleries – one that does more than just handle transactions.
If you’re interested in an art gallery POS system, systems from Clover™ and Turnkey have everything you’re looking for and more, including management software and tools for payment processing, invoicing, analytics, marketing, consignment management, and more. Don’t believe us? Keep on reading.

Other Benefits of Clover™ POS Systems for Art Galleries
Versatile Payment Processing
Whereas many point of sale systems a restricted to cash, debit, or credit card transactions, Clover™ stations can support payments using these and other methods, like EMV chip cards, and mobile payment methods like Google Wallet and Apple Pay. Why would you risk having to turn away a sale because you can’t support a prospective buyer’s payment method of choice?
Clover™ doesn’t just bring function to the table: it’s practically a work of art in itself. Sleek, modern design will perfectly suit most modern art galleries.
With Clover™ Mobiles, you can take your POS system in-hand and process art purchases on the floor of your gallery, increasing the likelihood of impulse buys and more seamlessly integrating shopping and conversion for your customers.
