POS embedded apps

You can add new features to Shopify POS by installing POS embedded apps. These apps run in Shopify POS and let you customize your in-store checkout in a few different ways:

  • streamline purchases by adding combos or packages with a single tap

  • offer sophisticated sales (like “buy one, get one free”, free gifts, and timed discounts), wholesale pricing, and other promotions in-store

  • add new payment methods, loyalty programs, and custom receipt printing at checkout.

Most POS embedded apps run only in Shopify POS — they won't affect transactions through your online store or through other active sales channels.

Install POS embedded apps

Available POS embedded apps appear on the Shopify App Store in the POS collection. You can install them only through your Shopify admin — you can't install embedded apps directly from within the Shopify POS app (but you can from your Shopify admin in your device's browser).

To find and install POS embedded apps on the Shopify App Store:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Apps.

  2. Click Visit Shopify App Store:

    Visit the Shopify App Store button

  3. From the Shopify App Store, click Collections, and then select Shopify POS apps:

    Shopify POS apps button — Shopify App Store

  4. When you find an app that you want to install, click Get to install it.

After you install a POS embedded app, it appears on the Apps page of your Shopify admin and on the Apps screen in your Shopify POS app.
