Shopify POS system
Brick-and-mortar shops, seasonal stores and pop-up shops could benefit from Shopify’s integration with its very own point of sale (POS) system and card reader.
All Shopify plans let you download a complimentary POS app on iPad or iPhone. The app works in conjunction with the Shopify Tap & Chip Card Reader ($49) or Shopify Chip & Swipe Reader ($29).
It used to be the case that US merchants could integrate Shopify POS with a non-Shopify card terminal running on the Aurorize.net or First Data Payeezy platforms, but there is no longer a card terminal compatible with this setup in the US.
There are actually two POS packages: Shopify POS Lite (included on all Shopify plans) with enough features for on-the-go sales, and Shopify POS Pro ($89/month per location) with advanced features for staff, store, order and product management.
Products already in the online store can be added to the POS library to sync stock levels across all sales channels. You also get to full checkout screen on the touchscreen device, customer profiles and product management features with the POS app.
