Hi guys!

I'm wanting to use Shopify POS in my new physical boutique store opening later this month in NSW Australia. 

I already use Shopify to run my online store www.her-empire.com so linking the inventory is ideal for me. 

I've found a bundle pack online in Australia for the hardware but not sure if it supports the current Shopify POS app version. 

All the info I've read about Shopify POS seems to be outdated from 2014. 

https://www.pos99.com.au/shopify-bundle-no-5-star-tsp654ii-bluetooth-printer-ipad-pivot-stand-cash-d...

If anyone uses Shopify POS in Australia currently and can provide some helpful points on what hardware is best to purchase for the intial setup right now, any info would be appreciated! 

Thanks,

Aly

Hi Aly

That link looks like it's dead, but pos99.com is one of the Australian vendors listed in the Shopify help center here: https://help.shopify.com/manual/sell-in-person/hardware#buy-from-other-vendors

Those links to pos99 and gorillalab should help you out.

Also, just a note that if you want to use retail hardware then you'll also need the retail package: https://help.shopify.com/manual/sell-in-person/retail-package

Best of luck with your store :)

Thanks so much Therese! 

I will just contact Pos99 to purchase all the hardware if it's been listed by Shopify as a recommended retailer for AUS :) 

Do you know if commonwealth bank card readers are compatible with Shopify POS. Is there a page that links to that information?

Also I know there is the $49 per month fee with the retail package. But just wondering Shopify won't charge me on top of my card reader supplier per transaction will they?

Do those transaction fees listed by shopify just apply for those who use the Shopify Card reader in the US, UK and Canada?

No problem, happy to help :)

We have a couple of Australian payment processors listed here https://help.shopify.com/manual/sell-in-person/hardware/card-readers/external-card-terminals.

Unfortunately we don't provide support for any external payment processors, so we can't recommend any one in particular. We always suggest shopping around to make sure you get the best solution for your store.

Sorry I can't give you any more specific advice!

Hi Aly

We charge transaction fees on all our plans unless you're using Shopify Payments or are a Shopify Plus merchant. As you'll be using a third party payment gateway to process your credit cards, you'll be charged their transaction fee plus an additional transaction fee from Shopify, for every order that completes checkout. 

Our transaction fee varies depending on your plan.
