Can only reply to comments for some reason here.  IT IS PRICE GOUGING PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!!

I currently pay 79.99 for my Shopify POS. The new “pro” system will more than double my monthly fee. If I choose not to pay the extra 90 per month on top of the already 80 per month, my features get cut in half! I’ll def be shopping around for a replacement POS.

Yes, it makes me wonder if they are fixing to go way up on their website plans. Apparently they think this new POS is worth more than the entire Shopify website! So if they imagine that this new POS holds that kind of value, what on earth are they fixing to do to their Shopify website plans???  I may need to start researching how to move my store to a different platform in case they go way up on their website prices (or keep the $79 plan but reduce the features).

 

They will have to add a lot more features to Stocky and make it much more robust for it to add enough value to make it worth $89.  It will need a full QBO integration which includes full financial needs such as sales orders, purchase orders, inventory asset value, cogs reporting all in QBO. If it has a true business grade QBO integration like every other POS and inventory management software then I would feel its worth the $89. 

 

AS IS, it is incomplete, I still need other software to manage inventory, cogs, and QBO integration....which all those added on top of POS pro makes the Shopify POS insanely expensive. Just adding QBO integration alone makes it nearly $200 a month. At that point I can go with Dear with is WAYYYYYY more advanced than the Shopify setup and has a fabulous integration with Shopify. OR I can go with one like ERPAG which would be way cheaper than $200 a month and still far more advanced than Shopify. Even Hike would still be more advanced than the Shopify and only had the price as it is $99 a month with many more features including full financial integration with QBO.  Because of all the lacking features that require having other apps, even the free Shopify POS ends up costing more than a good POS system like Hike.

I agree - shocking amount. And I don't know what we are supposed to be getting for the extra money, that the current app doesn't have.

 

I already pay 79.00 per month for the privilege of using hardware with my pos app, otherwise I would be on the 29.00 per month option.

 

The thing is, some merchant providers are now providing retail pos apps for free, And they will work with my hardware.

If they do remove any functions from the classic app i will be moving my business elsewhere.

 

They have way priced themselves out the market if they think we will pay an extra 89 a month for something we can pick up next to nothing elsewhere - and with some providers its free.
