Transfer of Ownership

If Point of Success software is sold either alone or with the sale of a restaurant we will transfer ownership of the software. The new owner cannot be supported until the software transfer is complete. Once it is determined that there is a new owner, place the account on support hold.  Make notes on the account and the alert note should be “Need Transfer”.

 

Generate a Transfer of Ownership Application in the reports section of SAM under Special forms. The customer number or user code is used to generate the form.  Send the Application for Transfer of Ownership to the seller or buyer or both. See below.

  • Click on “Reports” from left side menu in SAM
  • Click on “ Special Forms”
  • Click on “ Transfer of Ownership”
  • Enter in Customer Code in ALL CAPS
  • Click on print icon and print to PDF
  • Send instruction email to Merchant with attached Transfer of Ownership PDF 
    • Need following documentation for Transfer of Ownership
      • Current owner’s signature and copy of current owner’s legal id
      • Copy of sales agreement showing POS included in the sale

The Application for Transfer of Ownership must be returned by the seller with a copy of their photo ID. The photo ID is used only to verify that the signer of the document is in fact the seller.

If the buyer is unable to get the seller’s signature or photo ID, the buyer can complete the transfer document and return with a copy of the sales agreement showing that the software is an asset of the sale.

 A $100 Transfer fee is required.  If one of our authorized dealers facilitated the transfer we will waive the transfer fee. The dealer must forward the required documents to Point of Success.

In lieu of the $100 Transfer fee, the buyer may:

  • Purchase a six month technical support plan for $299.00
  • Purchase a Point of Success software upgrade:
    • Point of Success version 2 – $499.00
    • Point of Success version 3 with (1) or (2) licences – $199.00
    • Point of Success version 3 with (3) or more licences – $299.00
  • Customer on current Point of Success version = sign up for Point of Success: POSPay 

Once the Transfer is complete, document on the customer account and remove the support hold.
