Frequently asked questions
There are many pricing models for POS systems. For Shopify POS, your recurring costs will consist of your Shopify plan, transaction fees, and POS Pro subscription (if you choose to upgrade).
Your Shopify plan includes your retail POS, ecommerce, payments processing, marketing, analytics, shipping tools, and more and is available on a monthly or yearly basis. Transaction fees are automatically debited from each sale, so you can manage cash flow and have an accurate view of payouts.
For scaling retail businesses that see a lot of foot traffic, have multiple tiers of staff, or a large inventory catalogue, we recommend adding the POS Pro subscription to unlock additional POS features for your business.
In addition to monthly fees, there are typically upfront costs for businesses to get started with a new POS. To get up and running on Shopify POS, you’ll need: a smartphone or tablet to run the POS app and a Shopify card reader to accept payments.
There is no extra cost for additional registers on Shopify, so you can fill out your checkout counter or create satellite checkouts simply with a smartphone or tablet and an additional Shopify card reader.
To create your perfect POS setup, you can build out your checkout with Shopify’s flexible iPad stand and compatible hardware accessories like barcode scanners, cash drawers, receipt printers, and more. Bringing your own hardware accessories? Check if they are supported by Shopify POS.
Shopify POS Lite and Shopify POS Pro are two versions of Shopify’s POS app. Shopify POS Lite comes free with every Shopify plan and gives businesses of any size the ability to sell in-person from a retail store or on the go. On Shopify POS Lite, you can manage products, accept payments, and build customer relationships.
You can enhance the functionality of POS Lite by upgrading to POS Pro. The Pro subscription adds:
- Faster workflows for exchanges, discounts, local pickup, stock transfers, and more
- More control over staff permissions with unlimited POS PINs and custom roles
- Deeper insights about product performance with in-depth inventory reporting
- A 2-year warranty on hardware
- Access to a dedicated retail support team
If your retail business sees a lot of foot traffic, has multiple levels of staff, or carries an extensive product catalogue, we recommend upgrading to the POS Pro subscription to unlock these essential features for your business.
