Point of Sale , 359 reviews
I love Shopify, making the switch over has been amazing, I have made all my girlfriends with shops convert too! Point of Sale is great, I wish there was a way though to mark items on sale directly from an iPad, instead of getting on to the Shopify website on a computer, and also show how much a discount is on each individual item, instead of just showing the amount off at the bottom total. but besides that, its amazing
Hey Meraki Co. Thank you kindly for your feedback, we are so happy you enjoy Shopify! I completely understand the need for discounting items directly from your iPad so I'm glad to submit this feedback to our development team.
We have been using Shopify for 5 years now, We are happy overall, one thing I would like to see them add is a contact number for support. Last week in our area there was a major outage for another POS system, several stores had to close, we had a great day and out sales were up 20% for the day!
We've been using the POS system for the last 18 months. This was our second smart POS system but the first that integrated inventory between website and retail store. The integration has been a blessing and we have found a tremendous amount of value in having one system. While there are enhancements and quality of life improvements that we would like to have, the Point of Sale is in a place where we can use it for 100-200 transactions per day without any significant issues.
We currently have three registers (all iPads) with Bluetooth card readers, 2D scanners, and Epson receipt printers.
While my experience with Shopify POS has generally been positive, there are a couple of challenges. The barcode reading feature doesn't always work smoothly, and I've noticed that tap pay often disables itself. Additionally, toggling back and forth between functions seems to generate false abandoned carts, which can be a bit frustrating. It's worth noting that these issues seem to be affecting my business, so I'd appreciate any insights or solutions to improve these aspects of the system.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention and taking the time to write a review. I am going to provide this as a suggestion to our developers to have this looked into further. With that being said, I encourage you to speak with our live support about these issues that you are experiencing: https://shopify.link/mLA. This will allow our support to take a further look into the setup of the online store to advise further. We appreciate you providing your feedback about the application. -Ollie, Shopify Support
Prior to Shopify FOH our online retail and in store retail were 2 different channels. This meant no data was being shared across and also no integrated payments. Since using Shopify FOH we have grown our customer database and our direct sales from our newsletter database has doubled over the first year.
I have been a vendor at 4 festivals so far for a total of 6 full days and used their chip reader and this POS app. No problems other than disconnecting from the hot spot a couple times due to my phone or IPad. Although I could not print the report offered on days totals from the POS the print button was not clickable. Very easy to use and set up. Just have to make sure products are set to POS in Shopify admin. and disable tax setting when done if you're collecting taxes in another state temporarily. Other wise taxes will be collected on online orders if someone from that state orders online. Setting up inventory for the POS in the Shopify admin is confusing for me, for others probably not so. When I have more time I will call support to help me figure out. The POS app and reader has worked well for me.
Printing receipts direct from sale has at times not gone without hiccups, we have worked around by going back into orders and printed from there.
In the last 20 years, I've used multiple POS systems, QB POS, Stone Edge, Microbiz, and now Shopify POS. This is the simplest, and most advanced POS system we've used to date.
The only thing I wish was better was the Stocky app for inventory management. The fact that the Stocky app does not update the cost basis as we receive inventory is quite a disappointment.
Thank you for your review and your feedback! I am so glad it is working well for your business. -Emily, Shopify Support
Super easy so far. I am a physical store and purchased the iPad stand, barcode reader, receipt printer and chip reader. I purchased a cheaper cash drawer off Amazon. Everything was able to set up smoothly, including the cash drawer. I am not tech savvy, but I was able to set it up myself with no issues. With the barcode scanner, checkout is a breeze. The app makes it possible to personalize options. Add discounts in a click. Very user friendly. Once I am financially able to justify it, I would like to upgrade to the pro, but it's not feasible at this time. I would really like to be able to print a survey but haven't found one yet. I don't know if it exists?
This app is everything you need to begin a business. Very friendly, great data collector and the customer service is very fast reponse.
