What Is Shopify POS?

Shopify POS has the essential features you'd expect from a traditional POS plus the features you need for the future. Run your online and retail stores from one app, so you don't need to keep track of multiple inventories, catalogs, and payment systems. Customers and orders are synced across online and in-store, so offering local pickup, processing returns/exchanges, rewarding customers through loyalty programs, and selling gift cards anywhere is easy. Get the POS that gets your retail business.

"Revolutionized My Business"

Comments: Awesome. They’ve changed our business to one that was making $500 a month to one that has quadrupled in size in just a year.

Pros: I have been so impressed with everything that Shopify offers. Their reporting, different integrations, website building, all of it is so impressive.

Cons: I haven’t found anything that I don’t like about Shopify. I’ve been very impressed with them from the beginning.

"Mostly good"

Comments: Despite the minor flaws, I still use Shopify POS because it is the easiest POS solution for my business. The pricing is fine as well.

Pros: The Shopify POS is linked to my product list, which makes it easy to select which product(s) shoppers are buying.

Cons: It was hard to set a temporary sales tax. I live in Oregon where we don't have a sales tax, but sometimes travel to other states for conventions or shows. While at the show I need a way to set a location-based temporary sales tax and at the same time allow my online customers to check out without any sales tax. That was surprisingly hard to do last time I used Shopify POS. It's possible the problem has been fixed by now... I haven't used it since before the pandemic started.

"Incredible versatility at a very reasonable cost"

Comments: Shopify POS makes selling items in-person a total breeze. Barcodes can be scanned with the iPad's camera, and integrating either Shopify payments or third-party credit card systems are very easy. Plus, receipts can be printed, e-mailed, or texted

Pros: The ease with which one can customize the buttons (discounts, etc.), product selection, adding multiple products to an order, the ease with which one can accept payment methods (cash, cc, or third party payment), and the ability to take the system anywhere where there is an internet connection (i.e. mobile).

Cons: The fact that you cannot use any bluetooth hand scanner with the system (there's only one and it's very expensive).

"Having a tough time getting it to work"

Comments: Once I can get it all set up and functional I think I'll be really happy, but so far I'm struggling with implementation.

Pros: I really like that the POS integrates with my website and I can't oversell anything. I like that it's the same company as my website and I don't have to manage multiple interfaces.

Cons: I have had nothing but issues with the hardware and multiple chats with customer service to try and resolve. I also really don't like the new interface. There is so much additional clicking around to finish a sale, it's awful.

"It works okay but not great"

Comments: It does the job, but I think Square is overall better.

Pros: I like that it integrates with Shopify. The card readers are high quality. The app interface is okay.

Cons: The app is different on iPad versus iPhone. The iPad version is way better, but we do mostly outdoor events, so we use phones and it's a bummer.
