We are currently in the process of building our online store with Shopify and looking at the POS.
Struggling to find the hardware in New Zealand, namely the Star printer and the Cash Drawer.
Is there any compatible options here or are you looking at a distributor for a bundle package as in Australia?
Sorry to hear you've had a hard time finding a place that you can get the POS hardware. We actually have a doc with some info that you can check out here: http://docs.shopify.com/pos/about-pos/hardware/supported-hardware#hardware-vendors
This online shop here is located in Australia and you can actually purchase the entire POS hardware bundle from them. :)
Weird that they won't ship to you - but you could do the double step of getting them to ship to someone here (AU) whilst you organize the courier to collect. Never come across dealer in NZ that sells star printers so I can see the frustration. There's other stores that sell them here so maybe those guys would ship to you:
Just wondering if you had any luck with getting the Shopify POS hardware in New Zealand?
We sell the pos hardware kits in Australia and have successfully shipped to Hong Kong already.
If you need a hand or just some advice on the equipment, let me know either here or you can contact us directly at email@example.com
These guys in Wellington say they are Shopify Partners which is odd if Shopify hasnt heard of them but they sound promising:
"Shopify POS Hardware Supplier for more than five years. We are a Shopify Partner and will help with setup and after sales service support. We know Shopify POS very well and can help with any questions you may have."
