The PoS runs on a web browser, which means you can access it on any computer, tablet, or mobile device (like an iPad or phone). There is no special hardware needed — which makes it accessible to anyone, anywhere!

Decaf makes it easy to accept USDC in your own self-custodied blockchain wallet. The best part is that there are NO middlemen charging you fees, holding, and delaying YOUR money.

This is how you set up the Decaf PoS and accept USDC in 3 easy steps.

2. Customize your settings

  1. Now that you have registered your stores account, you will be redirected to fill out the profile settings. In this form you will be able to choose the site logo, restaurant name and the URL of your website! This URL is the interface for your Point of Sales.
  2. Click ‘Save’.
Profile is to create your store URL (Restaurant Slug). This URL is the interface for your Point of Sales.

Note: In case you want to modify this settings later, you can find them by clicking on the top right icon and then ‘Profile’.

Once you are done with your profile settings then you can customize your store settings.

  1. go to Settings > General.
  2. Customize your settings according to your needs (Find a description of each setting in our documents).
  3. It is important to note that if you have a Square Terminal you can easily import your menu and have a full integration with inventory and payment syncing. See more here.

On the left of the settings are the various settings options and you can adjust them to your business needs on the right.

3. Turn on — “Accept USDC”

Toggle on the payment methods that you would like to accept in your store

  • Accept Cash
  • Accept Card
  • Allow Bitcoin payments
  • Allow Solana Payments (USDC)
The last option is to accept USDC using Solana Pay powered by Decaf

You can then add an address for receiving Solana payments (we can create one automatically for you in our wallet management section). And you can select whether you would like to pay for customers transaction fees (for a nicer customer experience). You can see all details in our docs on Wallet Management and Fee Paying for Customer Payment Transactions.

You can access your Point of Sales and checkout on the PoS tab. This is what it what it looks like.

You can ring up a customer on the Point of Sales tab

Done! You are now ready to accept USDC at your business!

Now you can accept USDC like Solana Spaces. Here is a video of it in action!
