Location settings

If you have the Point of Sale sales channel enabled, then you'll see a Locations page in your Shopify admin. The Locations page contains the name and address of each of your stores, headquarters, and pop-up shops. When taxes are applied to an in-person order, the POS device's assigned location is used to determine which tax rates are applicable.

From your Locations page, you can set your store's primary location. The primary location is the default location that's used until you assign a different location to a device.

Note

Whenever you install the Shopify POS app on a device, make sure that you assign it to a location so that it applies the relevant tax rates.
