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.
An example of POS is when a customer pays for an item at a store's checkout counter, and the store provides the customer with a receipt.
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) products both in person and online. Connecting in-store and online sales helps you keep inventory, payments, and customers in sync so you can simplify day-to-day tasks, close more sales, and keep customers coming back.
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.
