Has anyone else seen Square's POS system called "Square register"? It is magnificent and so easy to use yet they added a lot of features a shop would need and is visually well designed. Unfortunately it is not available in Canada yet but hopefully Shopify has noticed it and is working on their own version because I believe it is something a lot of shopify users that also have a store would love. Anyone seen it and have thoughts of their own?

Shopify Does have its own POS or point of sale solution. It works with an apps that you can add to your mobile device and connect to payment options that are offered based on your location and payment provider!

Thanks for reaching out, I have already looked at shopify pos systems and at least the ones they offer in Canada are not nearly as good as the American shopify options or even close to Squares Register. You're required to buy an iPad (additional $600+ cost) and have to settle for an unreliable headphone jack card reader. Hopefully Shopify will invest more into their POS system and keep it consistent across countries because as soon as Square Register comes to Canada they will definitely take over a larger market share, especially with their new square business card.
