In Ontario, Canada, where Shopify is based I have a retail store and I'd like to use Shopify POS, but two things make me hesitant
1) There's no easy way to raise the price for a service "product". Example: I repair someone's gold ring. I want to select the product "Repair Ring" and enter a variable price because I can charge $50 to $500. Depnends on the work.
2) I'm surprised that there is no easy way to accept a Native Indian card. I have customers that are legally obliged to only pay the GST. I should have a way to swipe the PST part out of the tax through the POS.
I have been using another POS app now for 2 years while I wait for shopify to include these features. I will pay $250 to make these features available if thats what its going to take to get these features installed.
Elle here from Shopify. Thank you for taking the time to detail the features you're looking for on our POS.
We're always looking to improve our platform, so your feedback is very much appreciated.
I will be passing this along to our developers for consideration! We announce all new features of our POS within the app listing page for iOS here and Android here so be sure to keep an eye out for updates.
Thanks again for posting your feedback. Our aim is to help make selling in person as easy as possible for everyone.
Our company has developed an app that solves this issue and I'm happy to share that it was just approved earlier today! You can find it here: https://apps.shopify.com/pos-variable-priced-products-1. If this URL ends up changing, please search for "POS Variable Price Products" in the Shopify App Store.
Here is a short video demonstrating its functionality: https://youtu.be/PGQWpaCf5No?t=83
It also features the ability add tax-exempt line items, adjust inventory, and retain COGS reporting.
For any merchants who are specifically selling by weight, we also have another app specifically designed for that use case (currently with a 5-star average rating): https://apps.shopify.com/sell-products-by-weight
I'm the founder and developer - if you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
