I am working on a self-service kiosk concept for a client where the customer will be able to come up to the kiosk and shop the online store in a native app via a 24" touchscreen tablet.
Upon checkout, they will go through Shopify's native online store checkout flow and will have the option to enter their credit card address manually and I would like to also have the option for them to be able to swipe/insert a card/use tap or apple pay.
My initial idea is to integrate Stripe as a payment method and connect their Verifone P400 card reader/keypad to the tablet to accept the payment via swipe. If the user clicks "swipe/insert credit card" at checkout, the order information will be pushed to the Stripe terminal where the payment would be captured. Upon successful payment capture, the Checkout will be completed and the order pushed through as paid.
More info on Stripe terminal:
This is my first time doing this and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of checkout flow.
1. Do you see any issues with my logic using Stripe?
2. Have you done this successfully with another payment terminal? If so, what?
Hi mattdronkers! Have you had any luck with this? I want to do the same thing but only offer a few products, and also collect shipping fees and shipping information.
I found a kiosk management app called Facelet (an employee commented in a forum thread in 2015) but it just barely misses the mark for me by not pulling in the custom order form on my product page and also by not collecting shipping fees.
Yes there is a company. I came across this that has a few stores in Toronto using a custom Shopify self checkout machine. Sounds like it can do what you’re looking for. They run a Shopify store on a McDonald’s style self order kiosk with some custom software. https://www.eflyn.com/shopify-point-of-sale-system/
