POS with a PC

Hi there

We're about 6 weeks away from opening our bricks and mortar store. Given that the store is going to be relatively small, we were considering just having an all-in-one PC at the counter and operating our POS, printing labels, updating our website, emails etc from that.

Is Shopify POS compatible with a PC or must an ipad be used?

Thanks,

Caity

Hi Caity,

I looked into this myself.  Search for ...

RoundPOS for Shopify. Chrome POS

Developed by Lifehack Apps

In the Shopify App Store.

It might work for you. In our scenario I decided to use iPads, I found the IOS POS App much more intuitive and faster to use.

Hi Chris

Thanks so much for your response. I'll take a look at RoundPos and see how it looks for us. I noted on the reviews that people commented they weren't able to view all of their products - did you find that an issue?

I don't remember that being a problem.  You control visibility of Products in POS vs your Website via the Shopify Admin, meaning you can display a different set of products in each.

My real issue was time..  It's just much faster in the App.

If you are a very small Team, maybe consder just using the Shopify Admin to enter orders??  It works well but maybe gives users access to too much information.

This won't be a solution if you have multiple Sales staff.
