If you haven't had the chance yet to price other pawn-software programs, it might be worth the effort and quite an effort it will be with vendors whose prices are so high that they refuse to publish them on their websites. Instead it's necessary to call in and get subjected to the high-pressure sales speel.
Or, you could just avoid that experience and opt for Pawnbroker Pawn Shop Software - no monthly or annual forced support fees on top of a much lower initial cost.
PPSS starts at $695 for the basic 'Deluxe edition' which is a basic pawn-processing software program with buy outright, POS and inventory tracking. Many stores start there to become familiar with basic features then upgrade later on as skills and business grow.
All editions of Pawnbroker Pawn Shop Software are compliant with federal military requirements and PPSS is specifcially configured for the State of MO.
