Learn How Shopify POS Apps Help Brick and Mortar Merchants Succeed


At Shopify, we’ve been working hard to help our agencies and merchants deliver a truly unified commerce experience across online and in-store operations.

We often get asked to highlight some of the great apps that work with Shopify POS, so we’ve curated a collection of apps that will take your omnichannel selling to the next level. We've selected apps we know our merchants love to use in key retail categories so you can make a more informed decision about what apps to recommend to brick and mortar clients.

Some of our favorite apps are even offering extended free trials to Shopify agencies so you can learn more about how the apps can work for your merchants. Be sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll be adding to it on an ongoing basis with more great content on apps that will help our merchants grow.
