This workaround would be fine for us except that it does not allow us to do this if the price we want to enter is higher than we have in the system. We then have to have the products in at ridiculously high retails which isn’t ideal for reporting purposes. Simply changing it to allow any price to override would be a good start.

If the situation allows it because you have different products in the POS channel try just adding a variant to be the higher priced anchor item.
An alternative for by-the-measure products is to invert the problem and use the quantity as the price( so $1 worth of item is $0.01 price x 100)
Merchants should keep in mind a complication here is letting POS operators being able to casually modify a price point is not a good thing for reporting and more importantly audits.
This also goes hand in hand with having POS able to handle draft orders https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-for-Retail-Stores/Complete-Draft-Order-on-Shopify-POS-missin... so you may want to review the draft orders process and other comments in the link thread to see if that's a feature request thread that may apply to you and if so toss your hat in.
The reply made me feel like I was talking to the wall, not a partner.
Knowing the options now is always better than wishful thinking over a feature with no known date of release.
Understanding the complications behind a feature is just plain healthy for business awareness and as a mindset.
So if you think someone giving viable alternatives that could help other merchants is somehow "demeaning" to you, or telling you how to run your business then that's entirely on your ego.
I am completely blown away that Shopify didn't add this feature from the beginning and am even more confused why they haven't addressed this problem! The Lack of Open/Variable priced products is the only reason I am not going towards a Shopify POS. Love my Shopify Online store and hoped the their POS solution would be equally as functional. Listen to your costumers Shopify!!!!
