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

5 2 years ago

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

5 11 months ago

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.

One of the Best E-commerce Site

5 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

Easy to use,free templates to choose from, works great with Amazon. Easy to customize with little web development knowledge.

Cons:

Free designs are limited. Could get real pricy if attractive templates. Sometimes the inventory management may not sync well.

Having a tough time getting it to work

3 8 months ago

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.

Great for Multi-Channel Retail Businesses

4 2 months ago

Comments: I suggest that all the ecommerce companies I advise use Shopify to build their sites. Shopify is a natural extension of this into the brick and mortar/pop-up shop world. Shopify POS automatically integrates with your Ecommerce inventory levels, analytics, and more — making it a no-brainer for businesses already using the shopify platform.

Pros:

The shopify POS is extremely easy to use and train in employees on. It may not be as powerful as some stores require, but as an ecommerce business that runs the occasional popup shop, it has more than enough features for what we need. I like how well it integrates into the systems we already are running.

Cons:

I have no major complaints. The hardware accessories can be a bit buggy, but there's always an easy workaround.
