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, and selling gift cards anywhere is easy. Get the Point of Sale that gets your retail business.

I Am Most Impressed With Shopify

5.0 last year

Comments: I’m very happy with them and have convinced my friend to sign up. She is happy with it too

Pros:

I love the ease of use and learning didn’t take too much time. I use it to cash out my customers and inventory management as well as website maintenance.

Cons:

The price. The additional apps can be confusing. I wish they had better apps for social media posts. They did but the social companies pulled the apps as far as I know. I can’t afford paid ads all the time and the posts directly from my products across all socials were so helpful. Now I can only post in Facebook.

Best way to start ecommerce website

5.0 7 months ago

Comments: Very satisfied and not looking to change. What's great about Shopify is that it is constantly improving and the costs remain the same. I'm sure that any issues I have now will only get smaller or fully solved.

Pros:

I never had experience in running an ecommerce shop, so it was scary at first. But once I started setting up shopify, each step was so easy that I quickly became confident in running my store. Also, it is extremely cheap for the functionality you get.

Cons:

Certain areas lack functionality e.g. website design is very limited. Also, returns management is not good enough for us to use effectively, hence we had to use a different service for that.

Impressive performance and features.

5.0 last month New

Comments: Even though the basic features are robust, the customization options for the POS interface and receipts are somewhat limited and need to offer more flexibility and options.

Pros:

The interface is intuitive and user-friendly Seamless integration with our online Shopify store. Detailed sales reports and analytics.

Cons:

Although the POS works offline, some features are restricted without an internet connection and need to be improved.

Shopify good for a simple fast shop not the best for personalized brand

3.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Great beginner site if you dont really want to personalize it much.

Pros:

At the time Shopify made it easy to create new product listings & integrate them to etsy.

Cons:

Very limited on how you designed your shop and where you sold your products.

Reasons to Use

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: Shopify was a very simple product to learn. It was simple to reach to others so that there could be many working on a entering products. We went from an really old computer software that only allowed one person to input inventory. Shopify made that work very easy to do.

Pros:

After being out of retail for a few years, shopify was simply easy to use and to teach to others.

Cons:

It was hard to check on human erros. Although it was simple to use checking if items were put in correct tok time.
