Accepting a cash payment

You can accept payment by cash. When you accept a cash payment, Shopify calculates the change and tracks the amount of cash in the cash drawer.

Cash payments are turned on by default, but you can change your settings on the Payment types screen. Shopify supports a number of cash drawers.


  1. From the Cart screen, tap Checkout.
  2. From the Select payment option screen, tap Cash. By default, the correct amount of the order is entered.
  3. If the customer isn't paying with exact cash, then you can enter the amount that you're receiving in one of two ways:
    • Tap one of the suggested amounts below the Cash field.
    • Tap the Cash field to bring up the keyboard and enter the correct amount, and then tap Done.
  4. When you're ready to complete the order, tap Accept cash.
  5. Decide whether to provide the customer with a receipt, and then tap Done to return to the Shopify POS products screen.
