Point of Sale (POS) Glossary
A unit priced item is a product sold by quanitity, weight, or length. For instance, a thing might be sold at $1 each or $1 per pound. Weight is frequently used for food items, and length is often used for raw materials such as cloth. Unit pricing gives customers the flexibility to get the amount of product they want versus having to buy a preset quantity.
A point of sale system can be configured for unit pricing in many different ways. One option might include discounts for a bundle of items at a lower price than the per-unit pricing: for example, $1 each or 12 for $10. If items are sold by weight, a POS system might be equipped with a scale that weighs items and then calculates pricing based on a predefined unit of measurement.

You’ve probably been at the register at the grocery store and asked if you wanted to contribute money to a charity as you checked out. Maybe you donated, or perhaps you found it was annoying. It might have depended on your mood that day, or possibly the charity was a deciding factor.
