Worth to upgrade to Shopify POS Pro??

Err no, we updated it in my wifes' shop a few days ago, it is much harder work, to my eye it is slower to process a transaction. 

It states that only manual card payments can be taken (but chip + pin work, sometimes), 'swipe' card payments didn't work at all.

A perfect example of how to 'improve' something...

We have just reverted to the version that actually works, also it appears that we have 'lost' the transactions yesterday from our first day of re-opening, not impressed!

Hopefully we will be able to take card payments when we get to the shop today.

Dodgy development and a disappointing process on the whole!

Hopefully your experience[s] will be better!

I'm having serious doubts currently over the new Pro POS which still is not much compared to the others at roughly the same price.  Anyone have any good suggestions to Shopify?  Before this we were on Lightspeed which as a POS was awesome.  No need for an Ipad, supported layaways in the store, tracked payouts and chase register shifts from the admin panel.  They launched their e-commerce portion last year and it was pretty bad but who knows maybe it has gotten better.

Yup, @LemmonsStore you are right, Shopify POS Classic is no longer can use after 1st Nov 2020.

So we all have to adapt with the new The All-New Pos App by now!!
Just worry part is the bug and the problem will cause from the new pos app.......

About the new POS, there will come with a Lite and PRO ver.
Lite is free and same with the classic, and PRO is USD89 each month.
Shopify New POS features: Here

So far the sad problem for me is the Lite ver not including the Buy online, pick up in store features.
I think this features is common and must have for brick mortar retailers upgrade/add on a online store.
Hope Shopify will add in this feature which will convenience us to do more sales in online and let customer pick up the orders by walk in to store. 

Btw, feel free to join in the workshop for this coming Wednesday, September 2 at 12:00 pm EST

Hi all,

We have recently launched a POS app named ConnectPOS. In this first version, we include some basic features:

  • Buy online, return in store
  • Sync online stores with physical stores and with actual inventory
  • Assign existing bar codes to products and print labels
  • Scan bar code to add products to carts
  • Apply discount on selected products or the whole cart: Custom price, Discount percentage, Discount amount, Coupon code
  • Print receipt
  • Split tender, partial payment, pay with Gift card

 And some other features like add staff account with different roles and permissions.

As the app is new, we are making it totally Free and looking for the first users. The Free period lasts two months, and after two months, the premium plan is set to $49 a month for 1 register.

Can anyone try it and give me some feedback? 

Our goal is to create a stable app that can solve the problems you have with other pos apps, but I know there's a long way to go and everything has just started.

Any feedback will be appreciated!

Here's the link to the app: https://apps.shopify.com/connectpos

It is of my opinion that the role out of Shopify Pro along with its mandatory choice to pay over double the current rate or be forced to lose features a customer is and has been paying for in a time when the entire world is still experiencing a pandemic, our country (USA) has sustained and continues to struggle through economic business hardships, civil unrests with businesses being burned/looted and vandalized Is nothing short of exploitative and unethical practices as defined by the Attorney General. Shame on Shopify.

Shopify POS Pro is designed to handle brick-and-mortar sales, is an add-on to your ecommerce subscription, and the additional fee is paid of $89 per location, which is understood to cover its advanced features. Such include having unlimited registers, unlimited store staff, smart inventory management, omnichannel selling, cash tracking, custom-printed receipts, customizable staff roles and permissions, and in-store analytics.

It might be best for:

- Online shop owners who want a free and connected POS app that can also be used to sell on-site or in a pop-up setting.

- Those who want to manage all their online and brick-and-mortar operations under one platform.

There a some disadvantages I don't like:

Dependent on a Shopify ecommerce plan

- Add-on fee might be expensive for small businesses

POS Pro is not part of the subscription to any shopify plan.

It is free until the 31st October and then becomes chargeable at an
ADDITITIONAL $89 per month to keep it.

Shopify have now introduced a lite version that will be free but with
limited functions. I am not sure, as yet, if this will be suitable for a
bricks and mortar store.

What is free? During the webinar for POS Pro it was made clear that the current plan most are on at $79 would increase by another $89 if we wanted to continue with the same services we are currently receiving. If we do not pay the $168 per month, we will lose some of those features our $79 plan currently provides.

Steven34 -

I'm very interested in the other POS systems you mentioned in your post. We had moved to Shopify from Clover due to the nickel and diming you to death. SO MUCH time invested in Shopify; however, I will not be held hostage to be made to pay double in order to receive the same services. If you don't elect to go with Pro, you can forget about even getting a phone call!!! You mean to tell me..... they are controlling my money and they can't dignify me with a return call????????
