Adding a product showroom - selling online vs Shopify POS

21 0 4

Hi All, 


I sell high end massage chairs and have been doing so online only for the past 6 months.  A few weeks ago, I took a small space inside of another store and have 5 chair floor models on display for people to try.  I do not hold inventory at the store (just the demo/display models) so everything is still shipped direct from the manufacturer (dropshipped).  Does it make sense to use the Shopify POS app and take payments in person or should I just have customers use their phone or my computer at the store to go to my website and purchase?

Hi @MSchaffer30,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community.


While this decision is completely up to you, I'd recommend checking out this guide for more information about selling in-person. It touches on everything that you'll need including selecting a POS subscription, purchasing hardware, using the POS app, etc. It should provide you with a better understanding on how much this addition would cost and whether it's the right move for you business. 


Please let me know if you have any other questions.
