Using OnSite Mobile POS outside your store

If you want to connect to your OnSite Server from outside your store or through the cellular network, we recommend configuring a virtual private network (VPN) for secure access to your data. For reasons of PCI compliance, Lightspeed Support is unable to assist with network configuration. Contact a Lightspeed reseller If you need help configuring a VPN.

User Licenses and Lightspeed OnSite Mobile POS

OnSite licensing is based on concurrent users, whether logged in from OnSite for Mac, OnSite Mobile POS, or OnSite POS for iPad. For example, purchasing OnSite with a three-user license allows three users to log in concurrently from any combination of devices (three Macs, or two Macs and one iPod Touch, or three iPads). User licenses are not tied to one device, so logging out of a device frees up the license so that you can log in from another device.
