Agreed. We are testing out Shopify POS, since we already use the Shopify e-com platform, and have API access to our back-end ERP system for managing inventory and customers. If we didn't use the Shopify e-com platform I don't think we'd be as serious about the POS piece.


Without ecomm, using a free POS service makes more sense. Square comes to mind


1 year e-commerce, 7 years B&M store.

the point is to setup the pos first than ecommerce after...otherwise i would just use any pos...

How do you apply payments to the customer so the negative Store Credit amount is brought back to $0 and shows your customer as paid?

Hi @bnbdesignsal,


You can show a payment for a customer with store credit/ gift card via POS by following the steps below:


  1. From Shopify POS, tap Store > Payment types.

  2. Tap Gift Card.

  3. Tap the toggle buttons to activate one or both of the following options:

    • gift cards that you can print and email to customers
    • physical gift cards (you'll need to order a supply of these if you haven't already)

Shopify has a guide for this going through the details step by step which you can read here
