A cash register is the last thing on anyone’s mind when it comes to shopping.
That’s because they’re so popular with kids, especially those with little hands.
“We have all sorts of cash registers that are used for everything from changing diapers to getting the kids to go to the bathroom, but it’s so easy to buy one for your kids,” said Jessica Hickey, owner of the popular Amazon store in San Francisco, California.
She says there are also a number of online stores that sell cash registers for around $1k or less, although most of them are in China.
There are even “cash registers that you can buy online”, Hickey said.
So what are these cash registers?
“It’s usually made from plastic,” Hickey told the ABC.
“The metal parts have been bent into a ball shape so it’s pretty much like a paperclip.”
There are two types of cash register you can get for under $100: the cheap, basic model and the fancy, fancy model.
Hickey says that while the basic model is a bit of a letdown, there are a few things to consider before you buy one.
“First off, if you’re looking for something that is very simple, a good budget cash register can be a good option.
Second, you might be interested in a higher-end model that is more advanced.
If you want something that will last a long time, look at a budget model,” she said.
