BIGGEST ISSUE: Shopify cannot guarantee that the stock for items on the POS is the same as on the back end. Given I display one variant in my store and rely on the software to inform me of availability THIS IS A HUGE FLAW.
I've been using the software for 8 months and raised this issue with shopify some 5 months ago now and the problem persists. They have not been able to solve it in that time and don't see the issue as a particularly grave one. considering the cost to add this to the Shopify plan it is absolute obscene that this is acceptable.

We have been trying to get this to work for over a week. Service/support for this product is a joke. This has been a HUGE waste of time for us.

After using the shopify POS for my business it went well.. Unfortunately shopify since signing with apple pay has changed their "TOS" agreement citing that "apple" and apple pay does not approve of the sale of fire arms and or accessories.. Causing me to desperately look for another free or price accomodating POS system and causing me to loose over a full month of business.

We are having a problem with the scanner,IT DOES NOT WORK.I feel I'm getting the ''runaround''.We purchased all the equipment 2weeks ago and still cannot barcode anything.We called on Fri,Sat,and Sun and got nobody.The scanner came with no instructions so we went online to learn how to set up.It took 2 days to get a response,ok sat. and sun. I thought they had 24-7 help.seems to be 9to5. mon. thru fri. The box it came in seemed to be opened before.We have a lot of product on the online store and we have to manually remove items if we sell out of our store front,I hope we don't sell something we don't have.I find it odd they don't call,we have to do everything via email which takes a lot longer.My advise buy the CHS 7Ci on eBay and save $70.00,at least you can return it with no questions asked and ''you get the stand with it''.So we wait for another email:( This process took 5 days and they finally said the scanner is bad.What took 5 days to do via email would have taken 5 minutes buy phone. Now we wait to be approved by the "hardware dept"for a new one,we are now 9 days without a scanner,waiting for another email :( So we were told to buy another scanner before they even credit my account.This all started on 3/3/17,it is now 3/12/17,we went to eBay and bought a used one.I will update this as I go.Still waiting for credit on the bad scanner,and a SHIPPING LABEL!!!!!!!!!! Do not use this company.

Without the tipping feature, and having waited for year as a POS subscriber, we are now looking actively to migrate to another provider.

This may be the only POS on the market without a function to "leave a TIP" for the employee ringing up the order. While we do sell online retail, we offer barbering services, sharpening, etc.. in our brick and mortar store and are unable to let customers leave a tip on their credit card on this POS, and with more and more people not carrying cash, it looks like we may need to switch POS systems before our staff keeps getting upset that they are losing tips. Other than that, it is a smooth POS integration system, but the lack caring enough to add a simple function is why this POS is not ideal for anyone selling anything other than products. If you run a service, beverage, or food company then you definitely need to shop elsewhere for a POS.

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.

The Free version is pretty much useluss, due to a number of essential things missing in a bare minimum POS system, such as the daily report which is NOT available to either staff or even admin. If people should pay, that's fine - but then you should call the free version something other than POS because that would entail the daily report for one. You should call it a half of the POS, then I'd know what I was getting into.

Do not use this as your POS at any cost. It does not work to run a business at ALL! they do not record COG sales, you can not run a sales report by vendor for consignment, you cannot do an exchange!! I mean an exchange? This is retail 101. If you issue a store credit it does not track it...so it just goes into the universe with nothing attached to it. Their suggestion was to write store credits down in a book for our reference. Why in 2015 can you not attach a store credit to the customer that it belongs to???

It does not create sku's and yu cannot print stickers directly from the POS. You have to use a 3rd party app....which is just as difficult and slow.

Tracking and adjusting inventory is archaic and difficult. And does not give you a cost adjustment of LOS.

It's as if no-one that works at shopify has EVER worked in retail.

DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I MADE. DO NOT USE THIS FOR YOUR STORE POS. FOR ONLINE ITS FINE.

1/15/16**** FOR TWO WEEKS I WAS UNABLE TO PRINT TAGS BECUASE THE SOFTWARE WENT DOWN

2/15/16****THE CREDIT CARD JACK I PURCHASED FROM THEM---ONLY LASTED 4 MONTHS- THEY WOULD NOT REPLACE - AND THEY ARE BACK ORDERED FOR A MONTH- SO NOW I HAVE TO WAIT A MONTH TO GET A NEW CREDIT CARD PROCESSOR....AND HAVE TO HAND KEY IN EVERY TRANSACTION.

==Update==

Please avoid Shopify for their POS at all costs. The app has not been working for a significant percentage of customers for 10 days (according to Shopify themselves), and will take at least another 5 business days to fix. Today is 24 December. Christmas is tomorrow. It is haemorrhaging our business.

===

We have learnt to work around Shopify's many limitations and constraints. Please see our review for Mr Simms Wanchai and Emack & Bolio's below.

If you read the older reviews, many features have been suggested for years now, and so I don't think Shopify are treating their POS platform as a priority for development.

What is unacceptable is for the POS to breakdown the week before Christmas, when our sales are at their peak. Our customers get frustrated, and it is losing us sales every minute the system is down. When we launch the app, it crashes, so we cannot upload the crash report. I have been told not to delete the app and reinstall, so we are still waiting for a fix.

Meanwhile we are losing sales. Thanks Shopify.

We have 2 POS terminals in the shop, and both are not reliable. The app frequently (once an hour) crashes, meaning we have to rescan all the customer's items when there is a queue to checkout. Shopify POS is not for heavy usage.

Shopify technical support have informed me that the POS is not working for a small number of customers, but won't give any timeframe for the situation to be fixed.

What is really frustrating is the number of gurus you get passed to, so you end up repeating yourself 10+ times literally. To be fair, the gurus are friendly and try to help, but don't deliver on their promises and don't update you without you chasing up.

I don't want to get started about the integration issues we have had with other inventory management systems and Xero. Shopify does not calculate COGS. If you are a retailer, you will understand this frustration so no more needs to be said.
