With excellent CRM features, 24/7 support by email, phone, and live chat, full integration with Shopify ecommerce – Shopify POS Retail Package is a good choice for your UK-based business!
Shopify Point of Sales system allows you to connect the face-to-face shopping experience with a specially designed Shopify terminal, product management feature, and 24/7 professional support.
With the Shopify POS mobile application (you can find the app in the Shopify App Store) you can turn your Android tablet or iPad into a portable POS device to use on-the-go or in your store. By synchronizing your POS account with your store, you will get updates to your sales, inventory, analytics, and other information.
The Shopify platform works with the same cash drawers, barcode scanners, and receipt printers you see most POS providers work with. In other words, you can expect a seamless POS experience.
If you are using Shopify POS Retail Package in the United Kingdom, you are stuck with only one way of accepting credit cards: The Shopify Tap, Chip, and Swipe card reader. It works excellently as it is fully synced at the checkout. If you decide to use another method, Shopify will charge an extra fee (0.5% – 2%).
The credit card reader accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and debit cards.
The Shopify Point of Sale system is designed for retail business in the UK, and all over the world. If you are running another type of business such as a bar, restaurant or coffee shop, other POS systems will suit you better. The features included in Shopify’s Retail Package don’t cover hospitality functions.
The best way to set up Shopify POS for your UK-based store is on the web. You need to sign up, add your products, and start selling. The setting up process takes a few minutes.
The mobile POS application comes with a login screen for all Shopify users to access. The app, however, offers limited information when compared to the desktop version.
When it comes to the features, there are some great features you may expect such as product management, inventory management, backend reports and analytics, gift cards, customer management, loyalty schemes, invoice generator, and Shopify online store integration.
If you are opening a retail shop in the UK and you also plan on running an online store, Shopify is without a doubt the best choice for your business.
