I run a cheese shop online and in store and I really need help coming up with a solution for my physical shop. On our website we sell cheeses in set units e.g. 1 slice, 2 slice. In store we sell cheeses in fresh wheels that we cut at custom amounts for customers, however we are unable to use our shopify POS for this as we are unable to enter custom amounts when entering the quantity of cheese purchased. For example, we price our cheeses per 100g, but if a customer bought 120g we would put 1.2 as the quantity. The Shopify POS app only allows me to type in whole numbers e.g. 1, 2, 3 which does not suit the format of selling items by weight.
Is it possible for me to add a function to my shopify app that would allow custom quantities to be entered? I really want to get all of my products and sales onto Shopify but this is proving to be a massive barrier for my business in terms of our sales being split across Shopify and another payment system, and also is a huge barrier in maintaining our stock inventory all in one system. We want to move everything onto Shopify ASAP so would really appreciate any help with this!

Also looking for a solution to this. From my knowledge, Shopify does not let you create a custom POS app.

We need the same thing. I have not been successful in discovering an option for this that allows for wholesale discounts to be applied. This is really a disappointment. We liked the online sales features that we launched with added Shopify POS because we were sold on apps being able to solve our problems. Now are going to be switching everything over to another platform.

Yes, this is a huge need. We are considering leaving Shopify simply because of this issue.


You can check out Sell Products By Weight and Unit Pricer for potential 3rd party app solutions. Unfortunately, they don't meet our particular needs at the moment.

Hi there,

What would you like to know about our store setup?

I would love to be able to type in quantities to two decimal points on my
Shopify POS as I sell cheese to the closest five grams, so I can sell 95g
and type in 0.95, for example.

Kind regards,

Hi Rachel, did you find a solution for this? We are a fabric store and want to sell in whole units online but want to sell in partial units with our POS.
