iPad stands for Shopify POS
Shopify supports a range of dedicated iPad stands to enable easier viewing and interaction, whether you're standing at a counter or walking around your store.
If you buy a complete hardware kit from us, you'll be able to specify the type of stand you need when you place your order.
You can use other stands, but only those listed here are included in our support policy.
@Rest iPad stand by Heckler Design
Model number: HDAR118 or H234
The @Rest stand fits any iPad and enables you to use a viewing angle of 30 or 60 degrees. It's made of heavy steel and is designed to stay put wherever you use it most.
Set up the @Rest iPad stand
To set up the @Rest stand:
Fix the four adhesive feet to the base of the stand, to protect your counter top.
Turn the stand right-way up and decide which side you're going to rest your iPad on. One gives you a viewing angle of 30 degrees, and the other 60 degrees.
Insert the two resting pegs in the holes on the side you've chosen.
You can stick the large adhesive pad to the stand before putting the iPad in place, but this isn't essential.
There's a great setup video on the manufacturer's website.
WindFall stands for iPad Air and iPad mini
Model number (iPad Air): HDWFA1 or H236
Model number (iPad mini): HDWFM01 or H434
Set up the WindFall stand
The WindFall stand comes with different accessories so that you can choose how to set up your POS system. If your stand comes with a PivotTable, then we recommend that you install it rather than attaching the rubber feet. The PivotTable swivels your Shopify POS screen through 360 degrees, making it easier to rotate your iPad towards a customer during the checkout process.
If the PivotTable won't rotate
You might have the plastic feet and the PivotTable installed at the same time. Remove the feet, because they will prevent the PivotTable from rotating.
Locking your Windfall iPad stand to a surface to prevent theft
The Windfall iPad stand supports the Kensington ClickSafe cable lock (sold separately). The lock attaches to the Windfall iPad stand and the cable wraps around a physical surface (for example, a table leg). Each lock is individually keyed for maximum protection.
Sticking your Windfall iPad stand to a flat surface
For long-term placement, use the double-sided, peel-and-stick disc that comes with the stand.
For a non-permanent solution, the PivotTable itself uses suction to adhere to a surface. By gently pressing down on the PivotTable, you can create enough suction to stick the Windfall iPad stand to a flat surface.
More tools for the iPad stand
We don't sell tools but you can buy them from the iPad stand manufacturer or from a general hardware store.
The hardware you need is called security torx or security hex, depending on the screws your stand uses.
