Getting started with Shopify Point of Sale

Before you start selling through your Shopify Point of Sale app, you need to choose the Shopify subscription plan that is best suited for your business, purchase and connect any POS hardware that you need, and set up your POS app to accept payments. You can use Shopify POS's basic features on every Shopify subscription plan at no extra cost. If you want extra retail features, then you need to use Shopify POS pro.
