Shopify POS

Shopify is an e-commerce platform first and a POS provider second. That said, they produce basic to mid range retail POS which could be the answer if you have Shopify ecommerce. Their main competitors are Vend or Lightspeed Retail.

Pricing

It starts at $29/m but $79/m is standard. (That’s dollars so the price will fluctuate).

What makes it different?

Shopify is mainly interesting for shops with an e-commerce operation; but it integrates with Shopify payments too, so can be a total one-stop-shop.

Compatibility

It’s an app which can download onto an iPad, iPhone, or Android. It can only fully integrate with Shopify payments, and those are generally more expensive than the market rate. It can integrate with Xero or Quickbooks. All the hardware shown here is supported.

Service

Shopify has 24/7 customer service. However, some customers have reported issues with customer service reps being oriented to the online platform and less equipped to help people using the POS system.

Getting started

Shopify is user friendly and easy to set up. Shopify POS has a 14-day free trial. To get put in touch, email hello@storekit.com.

Good reporting and simple to use

Pros

simplicity at the POS is the biggest plus for us, clear images appear on the tablet which keeps mistakes to a minimum. Easy to load the products onto the system and obtain sales reports

Cons

Inventory history is only held for 90 days which can be an issue. It would help if the end of day till reading could be exported . It would be interesting to see how many weeks stockholding was being held against each product code

Clean and easy to use

Pros

The simplicity of the interface and how easy it is to navigate between screens. I also like how quickly it switches between screens for items and how you can check out an order with simplicity.

Cons

I have noticed that the app has a tendency crash on occasion, which isn't a massive issue as you don't lose orders but is a bit annoying.

Does everything I need it to cleanly and easily.

Pros

The fact that my inventory is linked between my online shop and bricks and mortar shop so that maintaining stock levels is straight forward as if I sell a product in store, the online shop stock levels are automatically updated.

Cons

The back of house interface took me a while to gets to grip with as things weren't quite as clear but you get used to it quickly with use.

My experience of using the Shopify POS system

Pros

It's simple, easy to manage and quite a fun system. I like the fact my online inventory synchronises with my retail inventory, oh and not to mention the fact that Shopify caters for both my online and retail needs!

Cons

Certain features that are not made simple, but I guess this is because it is designed to be used quite universally and each brand's features are not proprietary.
