This works great for the inventory and it helps to keep track of everything. I hope they integrate with BluePay soon as I use them as a gateway.

Shopify POS has been a godsend for us. As a new business, we have a lot of friends and family coming by, excitedly rifling through our inventory, then offering to write a check. Not only can we take their cards (they're chuffed to bits when I tell them, and it saves me from going to the bank), but it automatically takes the inventory off our website. Doing it manually would be a huge pain.

Great feature, Shopify. The card reader is smooth, customers who opt-in to get the receipt, their emails are automatically added to our newsletter, and if my son has hidden the card reader, it's easy peasy to type the number in. Love it, love it, love it.

We are a nonprofit that sells beautiful jewelry at special events and this app has helped us to streamline that process, monitor sales and provide a seamless transaction for the customer. They love it and it is so easy to use.

I like it.. I own a pet supplies store and it's doing the job.. yes it needs major improvements in terms of discount vouchers and exchanged items.. but these guys keep developing and improving and I have no doubts that they will eventually have a solid app.

Keep up the good work!

Limited functionality, features that are available on the website are not available on the POS app (payment methods for example), and the app crashes constantly.

We have to delete and redownload the app roughly once a week. I'm told this is due to potentially losing our internet connection, but this seems like something that their software should be able to record. However, as with many other problems we experience, we're told the issues are the way we're using their software and not a failing in their code.

I advise against getting invested in Shopify POS.

We specifically moved to Shopify because our old ecommerce did not have a POS component and our POS system was separate from ecommerce. We decided that having both in one was a win win situation. Well, after we moved our website over successfully (SHOPIFY REALLY IS THE BEST ECOMMERCE SOLUTION!!!!), we decided to start tackling the POS side and came to discover it is woefully lacking. For example, I don't want our employees to add any discount code but rather to select from discount codes I pre-create. It doesn't even offer that. Anyone can give any discount they want and word it any name they want. It's cray cray- so in the end, we have decided we love the Shopify website and we love our eCommerce solution so I am actively looking for a way that both of those can integrate rather than using Shopify's POS. I really hope they can make it better and stronger in the long run.

Great app for taking in person order with my iPhone or iPad. I don't use it for a retail store so i can't comment on how it works with hardware like cash register, scanner, etc. But with the card read it works great.

I quite like the Shopify POS for it's simplicity and it's very fast and responsive.

A few extra features would come in handy though such as running accounts (hospitality based business). Reporting should also be standard.

The benefit to the Shopify POS is that it integrates your online store with your brick and mortar store and syncs the inventory. This saves a lot of labor time. It is also easy to use and doesn't require much training.

The Cons...

It only works with certain overpriced equipment.

There is no option to exchange an item, which is a pretty standard thing amongst POS systems. You must refund as store credit and then use store credit to purchase the new item. The system does not keep track of the store credit. You only have a receipt to go by. There is nothing to stop the customer from trying to use that store credit again.

You need to use Shopify as the payment gateway otherwise you cannot use their card swiper and will need to process credit cards with a different system (Shopify tech support tells you that you can use any gateway without mentioning the fine print).

It allows employees to discount items up to %100 off without the need of a managers approval. However, it does not allow you to change the price of an item when checking out a customer... only lets you discount. This issue came up when there was a mistake with the price of an item and my employee had no way of correcting it at time of checkout.

The system constantly loses contact with the wireless barcode scanner, card swiper, and receipt printer. You have to restart the POS app to reconnect them while the customers are standing and waiting.

Overall, it is a good system to help keep track of all of your stores and sales. If inventory syncing is not that important for you, there really is no reason to overpay for the Shopify POS.
