Point of sale

Shopify POS is a point-of-sale app that you can use to sell your products in person. You can use Shopify POS to sell almost anywhere, including brick-and-mortar stores, markets, and pop-up shops.

Shopify POS syncs with Shopify to track your orders and inventory across your retail locations, online store, and other active sales channels. You can even view and manage your store's orders from the app.

Getting Started

Whether you're setting up your first Shopify store, expanding your online store to start selling in person, or transitioning from the Shopify POS Classic app, the following are resources to help you get started using Shopify POS:

If you're just starting out with Shopify as your ecommerce platform, then you can start with our checklist. The checklist guides you through the initial steps for setting up your store.

If you already have an online Shopify store and you want to start selling in person, then you need to set up the Shopify POS app, choose your hardware, and set up your payment methods.

If you're still using Shopify POS Classic to sell to your customers in person, then you can switch to Shopify POS and sync your Shopify POS settings to set up the app.

If you use an Android device to run the POS app or accept payments with an integrated Moneris card reader, then you can refer to the Getting Started with POS Classic section.

Refer to the Getting Started section for a complete guide to setting up the Shopify POS app, including choosing the subscription that best meets your needs.
