Frequently asked questions
A point of sale, or POS, is a system for making sales in person. It’s the device and/or software that you use to process transactions and accept payments, likely from your retail store.
With Shopify POS, retail businesses get all the tools they need to manage daily operations, accept payments anywhere, and build relationships with their customers. But the benefits of Shopify go beyond your retail store. With a powerful ecommerce solution also included, Shopify unifies in-store and online sales to bridge the gaps between your website, social media, and POS. This allows you to sync inventory everywhere you sell and offer seamless shopping options for customers like local pickup, local delivery, ship-to-home, and email carts.
There are many different types of POS systems available on the market. And finding the right one for your business can be a challenge.
Shopify’s point of sale is flexible enough to support a variety of businesses at any stage of growth. The retailers that find the most value from Shopify POS are those that sell (or want to sell) both in person and online. Connecting in-store and online sales helps you keep products, payments, and customers in sync so you can simplify day-to-day tasks, close more sales, and keep customers coming back.
At its most basic level, a POS system works by calculating the total of all the items being purchased and allowing you to accept or track payments. But most businesses today should expect a lot more from their point of sale.
In addition to making sales, Shopify gives you one back office to manage inventory, staff, accounting, customers, marketing, and analytics, and more across all the places you sell. This means you’re not juggling multiple systems or repeating tasks in order to keep your data up-to-date. With Shopify, you gain new tools to increase sales and more time to focus on growing your business.
Shopify is a complete platform for running a business. No matter where you sell, in-person or online, Shopify becomes your command center for managing products and orders, accepting payments, and building relationships with customers. Having a unified back office gives you the ability to sell from a retail store, a pop-up, a website, on social media channels, or online marketplaces, while keeping them all connected. This means flexible shopping options like buy online, pick up in store or buy in-store, ship-to-home are seamless.
Shopify POS connects to that powerful back office for in-person sales, ensuring that inventory, payments, and customer data are fully synced as you make sales from your retail store. Linking in-store and online sales with Shopify helps you simplify inventory tasks, have more control over cash flow, and re-engage in-store visitors with online marketing. The intuitive and mobile POS app also makes it easy to fly through checkout and assist customers anywhere, on the sales floor or on the go.
