Point of Sale Designs & Retail Display Solutions

Point of Sale Designs amplify your brand and drive customer engagement.

Point of Sale

POS (Point of Sale) refers to the point in the customer journey where customers are ready to make a purchase. This may be a sales counter, kiosk or till. These points are the final moments where you can influence an additional sale before a transaction takes place, increasing in-store spending. 

With 40 years of retail design experience, we at Ripple understand that to stand out in the competitive store environment, customer experience is key. Signalling an immersive and interactive customer journey can be what sets you apart from the homogenous competition. In the age of digital and online shopping, customers are increasingly impatient. Long queues can lead to purchase abandonment, hence the importance of crafting a unique POS experience. To do so, it’s firstly important to understand what makes POS merchandising effective for reaching sale KPIs.  

What are the different types of point-of-sale display stands?

Our in-house design and manufacturing teams enable us to create any POS display. The first stage of the process is to understand your brand and merchandise, determining what results you want from your POS stand design. Your branding and aesthetics are taken into consideration when crafting the concept and it is manufactured to the highest quality. Having complete control of our manufacturing pipeline allows us to control our production timeline, making us trusted POS manufacturers. We work with a variety of businesses from different industries to design and or manufacture POS stands. Here are some of the most common POS stand designs:  

Counter Display Units

Most impactful at the till point.

Positioning POS design systems at the till can be an effective way to showcase your brand. It’s a convenient place to influence a purchase on an item that a customer may not have considered previously and the proximity to the till encourages them to buy.

Free Standing Display Units

Ideal for queing systems.

Alternative POS stand designs include FSDUs. These are ideal for reducing perceived wait time and offering a more positive customer experience. If a customer is engaged with something that interests them, it can distract customers from their wait. This time can be used to encourage a purchase or offer information about your product or brand.

Hanging Signs

Used to maximise impact when retailers have limited space.

Hanging signs are effective POS solutions as they can attract customers to your high-traffic areas, exposing them to the merchandise you want them to interact with most. Elevated placement can ensure more customers are aware of promotions, new products, or directional cues. This POS format is one of the easiest to implement and change, allowing your store to keep up to pace with the seasonal changes in consumerism, with minimal disruption to store layout.  

Display Cubes

Perfect for displaying merchandise at all angles.

If you aren’t limited to space, display cubes can be strategically positioned in high-traffic POS areas. These allow you to display a bigger variety of products and are versatile enough that they can be customised to demonstrate themes or seasonal campaigns. As products are more visible from various angles, positioning products within display cubes can increase the chance of gaining customer attention and prompting purchases.

What is a Point of Sale/POS Display

POS stands are tactical marketing tools which can be used to increase brand recognition, boost awareness and generate visibility – if done correctly. Location and design are key. A POS design must increase the likelihood of securing customer attention. Incorporating digital elements into a POS stand is an effective way of doing so. These can attract the attention of customers in high-traffic areas if they are offering a point of difference from other store displays. Leaving a lasting impression can foster a trusting relationship with customers. Remaining relevant in the minds of the consumer generates loyalty and increases brand recognition, which will increase the chances of returning to your store and in turn, increase customer spending.  

POS stands are ideally located near the tills or busy aisles, where impulse buyers can be influenced into making a purchase. POS stands can come in a variety of formats, including Counter Display Units (CDUs) and Free-Standing Display Units (FSDUs). As a point-of-sale design agency with our in-house manufacturing facility, Ripple can cater to a wide range of point-of-sale display options, bespoke to your brand. We understand the importance of highlighting your unique products’ features and we work with you to ensure your POS design maximises impact.  

Certain products will work better on a POS stand than others. They need to be impulse-driven, limited, or promotional offers that your customers won’t want to miss out on purchasing at that moment in time. Think of the last time you made a purchase – what caught your attention at the till point? Tempting, last-minute impulsive buys are what works well on POS stands. Alternatively, you may use POS stands to advertise a new promotion, market a new product, or simply enhance the look of your checkout area. The more accessible you make the product to your customers, the more likely they will make a purchase.
