Shopify POS reviews (39)

Not sure why there are so many bad reviews for this. It works perfectly for me. I have one retail location I just opened, and I love that I can have my online and store inventory all in one place. I use the shopify chip card reader with it and works great with that too. Very easy to use. Would be nice if it had some kind of inventory features, such as creating SKUs, or keeping COGS. Also kind of expensive when you are already paying for a premium plan online. Otherwise, works..no issues.

This app has been perfect for our needs. Collect peoples money for each purchase reliably at an event. We don't need extra stuff.

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.

When Shopify POS works, it is a mediocre POS at best. The problem is it is unreliable, and will crash usually when your shop gets busy leaving customers frustrated.

As many other reviewers have said, it lacks many basic retailing features.

For example, when we opened a second shop, we had to open a new account and import all the products in again. Do Shopify expect their users to not grow their businesses? That's why we have two separate Shopify accounts, so when we issue a gift voucher in one shop say, our customers cannot redeem at the other shop. Neither can they do exchanges. The list goes on.

However our issue for this shop account is with data integrity. We have experienced situations where receipts are printed with sales that do not add up to the total. This creates a lot of daily reconciling work for us, and confusion for customers.

We have sent photos to Shopify showing negative amounts on receipts (e.g. according to Shopify we are giving money and product away!). Support are friendly to be fair, and well trained to sound helpful, but as yet we have no solution.

Like the reviewer below, when you cannot trust the data, you may as well go back to pen and paper.

The app also tends to crash very often, especially when there are over 200 transactions a day during this busy Christmas season, leaving customers waiting for their orders to be scanned again.
