POS Systems

What programs have you been using and what should we avoid? We would like it to be Ipad compatible and be able to track sales remotely. Please leave your…See More

Carley Felton replied to Valerie Herskowitz's discussion Best candy boxes for shipping
"Sometimes the Flat Rate Shipping is great, depending on what you are sending. But if your items are smaller and weigh less than a pound, you may want to look into sending it regular mail because it can by way cheaper! I send my 4 pc truffle boxes…"

Carley Felton replied to Valerie Herskowitz's discussion Best candy boxes for shipping
"Hi Valerie, Pick out the candy boxes you like and fit your brand, then go to ULine or another shipping supplies store and find sturdy boxes to ship your candy boxes in. This is much cheaper than buying the boxes at your shipping store in your city.…"

Chocotoymaker replied to Carley Felton's discussion How many cases in a pallet??????
"You can get Belcolade from Puratos USA. I believe they deliver nation wide. Their typical pallet is 40 cases x 55 lb, but you can order less. ( like 30 x 55) They will charge you a few 100 bucks for delivery though"

So this leads to my question(s) about ordering in pallets from Belcolade in NJ itself.Does anyone have any experience ordering pallets of chocolate? Shipping methods, costs etc. I would prefer not to have to order a whole pallet at a time as we are not that large yet, but it is looking more and…See More
