Here’s a breakdown of the monthly Shopify cost for a retail business with two stores.
For Shopify POS, your monthly fees will consist of your Shopify plan, transaction fees, and POS Pro subscriptions (if you choose to upgrade).
Your Shopify plan includes your retail POS, ecommerce, payments processing, marketing, analytics, shipping tools, and more and is available on a monthly or yearly basis. Transaction fees are automatically debited from each sale, so you can manage cash flow and have an accurate view of payouts. Shopify plans start from £19.00/month when paying yearly.
For scaling retail businesses that see a lot of foot traffic, have multiple tiers of staff, or a large inventory catalogue, we recommend adding the POS Pro subscription to unlock additional POS features for your business. Shopify POS Pro is an additional $89 USD/month for each location you choose to upgrade.
In addition to monthly fees, there are typically upfront costs for businesses to get started with a new POS. To get up and running on Shopify POS, you’ll need: a smartphone or tablet to run the POS app and a Shopify card reader to accept payments (£40 GBP).
There is no extra cost for additional registers on Shopify, so you can fill out your checkout counter or create satellite checkouts simply with a smartphone or tablet and an additional Shopify card reader.
To create your perfect POS setup, you can build out your checkout with Shopify’s flexible iPad stand and compatible hardware accessories like barcode scanners, cash drawers, receipt printers, and more. Bringing your own hardware accessories? Check if they are supported by Shopify POS.
Shopify POS Lite and Shopify POS Pro are two versions of Shopify’s POS app. Shopify POS Lite comes free with every Shopify plan and gives businesses of any size the ability to sell in-person from a retail store or on the go. On Shopify POS Lite, you can manage products, accept payments, and build customer relationships.
You can enhance the functionality of POS Lite by upgrading to POS Pro. The Pro subscription adds:
If your retail business sees a lot of foot traffic, has multiple levels of staff, or carries an extensive product catalogue, we recommend upgrading to the POS Pro subscription to unlock these essential features for your business.
