Selling in person with Shopify

The Shopify POS app for iOS and Android is a point of sale system that you can use to sell your products in person.

Shopify POS app on an iPad, iPhone, and Android device

You can use the basic features of Shopify POS to sell almost anywhere, including markets, fairs, and pop-up shops. Use Shopify POS to create a cart for each customer, customize the cart in several ways, and then accept payment with a range of payment methods.

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.

To create a full retail store experience, you can add the retail package to your Shopify plan to get extra features for Shopify POS. With the retail package, you can add hardware to your retail setup, and manage your store more effectively with features like staff PINs and register shifts.

Shopify POS pricing

You can use Shopify POS's basic features with every Shopify plan at no extra cost. If you want extra retail features, then you need to add the retail package to your Shopify plan. You can find the cost of the retail package on Shopify's pricing page.
