Using POS in Grocery Store

This questions. 1. I want to use the system in Grocery store. I have to set up a servers and 10 registers. I will accept FoodStamp and some other types of cards. What is the way to set up system accept Food Stamp. I mean I have set up all configurations for it, but I just want to know if I slide a FoodStamp card , how to make system charge from it. I need to set up FoodStamp merchant account separately or just purchase merchant account with food stamp support. I don't know ... can anybody help me with this ? 2. I will need 10 scale-scanners. is there any roght scheme to set up all this or I just need to setup scaner on register and connect register to server. I think there should be a way to use one scale for 2 or more registers. Anybody knows the answer ?

Ashot,
I'm replying to your second question concernings scanners & scales, = regarding scanners, nothing special, u'll connect a scanner to each = register, all registers r connected to ur server thru ur LAN Regarding the scales, u have 2 options:- 1.. counter scales, these r scales that r not located at POS, they r = located in the locations in which you customers can't help themselves, = like meat, dairy, fish. These scales print labels that r readable on the = POS scanner, these scales have keyboards and screens. Items used for = these scales will be standard items starting with '20' or '02' 2.. register scales, they will connected directly to your POS, and = will be used for items (fruits & vegetables) that u want to weight on = POS and that your customers can pick up themselves, these scales don't = print labels, they have only a small customer display that shows weight = to the customer. u still have the option to use both types, and still u can use option1 = only for fruits & vegetables by locating some small counter scales at = the customer's hands, and put one of your staff just to print lables.

Hello Ashot RMS is a great progam however I think it still needs more time to mature to operate efficiently in a foodstore as large as the one you are highlighting with the corresponding requirements. I would suggest you use something like Catapult, or General Store. :)
Or search google for supermarket POS.
