This is a fairly old post but for those still following see this announcement in the API section:
This does not solve the issue for tipping for my employees that rely on tips for their income.
When is a tipping function going to be added to the all new point of sale?
This is the only system I have seen without it on POS.
Honestly if I knew this in advance I would not have switched from square.
Help me out here.
It says "Coming Soon".
I've been bugging Shopify for a month about this. The latest word is "the feature is in closed beta and will be rolled out soon." I've had a series of communications with Shopify about this -- their staff isn't properly trained on the new software so they're unaware that tips are no longer a part of the PoS. I had to send in a screen shot of the grayed out tip option in settings.
