Shopify POS retail package

You can add the retail package to your Shopify plan to get extra features in Shopify POS.

With the retail package, you can use additional hardware with Shopify POS to create a full retail store experience. You might use a barcode printer to print barcodes for your products, and then add products to the cart by scanning their barcode with a barcode scanner. You could also use a receipt printer to print receipts, gift receipts, and paper gift cards for your customers.

The retail package also gives you features to help you manage your store, like register shifts, cash tracking, staff PINs, and saved carts.

You can find the cost of the retail package on Shopify's pricing page.

Retail package features

The retail package is intended to help you create a full retail store experience, so the majority of its features work only with Shopify POS for iPad. If you use Shopify POS for iPhone, then you can add the retail package to use a Swipe card reader with a supported third-party gateway and physical gift cards.

In Shopify POS for iPad, the retail package gives you the following additional features:

Hardware Connect with additional retail hardware such as a receipt printer, cash drawer, or barcode scanner. You can re-use your own retail hardware if it's supported by Shopify.
Moneris card reader If your store's based in Canada, then you can use the Moneris card reader to accept credit and debit payments, including Interac.
Print receipts Print customized receipts at checkout.
Gift receipts Provide your customers with a gift receipt.
Physical gift cards (Shopify plan and higher) Sell and redeem physical gift cards.
POS-supported payment providers Use the Swipe card readers with a POS-supported payment provider.
