Managing your POS Apps

POS UI Extensions are a way to use apps to enhance and personalize your retail experience for Shopify POS.

For example, some extensions use the device scanner to complete stocktakes, scan loyalty or employee cards for discounts, or receive products in store.

You can use the UI Extensions settings in the POS sales channel to manage the extensions across your store locations.
