Mobile POS Software Vendor Market Share
Published: March 13, 2020 Content info:


Mobile POS Software is one of the fastest growing areas in retail technology, but it is not growing at the same speed in all retail segments or even by the size of retailers.

This research tracks the installs and shipments of software licenses in Mobile POS instances. It reviews the smaller retailers “mom and pop's” that began the mobile POS trend and that are seeing tremendous technology disruption for traditional POS terminals. It also covers the forecast for the the fast rise in adoption of mPOS in the enterprise retailers.

You would use this research to answer the following questions? How big is this market? How fast is it growing? Which vendors are winning? How much share does Square, Level Up, Shopkeep have? Are these vendors doing better than Enterprise vendors like Oracle, Toshiba and Starmount? How does the market growth differ for Enterprise verses SMB? This research will tell you.

This research provides shipments and installed base on a quarterly and annual basis for vendors such as Square, Intuit, Shopify, Level Up, First Data, Paypal, Revel, NCR and Pay Anywhere at the SMB level, then Oracle, Infor, NCR, Aptos, Toshiba, and many others for use of mobile devices for POS. We look at shipments and installed base by segment and tier.

Below in the Product Highlights section we get into the details of the data available. The Preview tab gives you some pictorial examples of the types of data available.

This data is meant to be used in conjunction with the Mobile POS Study which provides the qualitative background of the trends. It is in this study where we discuss trends, barriers to entry, and growth assumptions. The data here is purely quantitative in nature. We are thankful to the vendors who participate in sharing data points to make this as accurate as possible.

The data is customized for segment or if SMB or Enterprise. The pricing ranges from $1,500-$6,000 depending on the segments chosen.


Initially this Mobile POS Software Share is focused only on the North American market.

The data is provided with Shipments and installed base with the following roll-ups:

  • Total Market
  • Share in retailers with fewer than 50 stores
  • Share in retailers with more than 50 stores

We provide this delineation on the market share as we realize the market at the smaller retailer level is quite a bit different than that at the enterprise level. The systems are different, the vendors are different, and the load on various systems are different.

  • Food/Grocery (Kroger, Safeway, Trader Joe's, Wakerfern, Tesco,)
  • Drug Stores (Walgreens, CVS)
  • Superstore/Warehouse Clubs/Hypermarkets (Walmart, BJ's Wholesale, Costco, Auchan)
