Need to create different prices for POS than online

Solved

I have a client that needs to be able to support one price online and another in their brick and mortar stores. I have not found an app that allows this. We synch our store with Amazon so duplicating products (we have over 23,000 of them) is not a reasonable solution. Without this feature, I will have to revert to WooCommerce. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We've been desperately needing this functionality as well, but sadly something that seems so simple is still missing from Shopify.  I have been through the forums, it has been requested for many years and I can't figure why Shopify wouldn't add this in.  Even being able to use the Compare At price for POS would do the trick for us.  

The suggestions by the "Shopify Gurus" that we duplicate all of our products and sync the inventory via an app is just not a viable solution.  This may work in a limited manner, but we are also interfacing into an accounting system and a further job management system, and any stock changes generated in these cannot be synced by an external app to the duplicated products.  

We are seriously considering another platform that allows such a seemingly simple function.

Use SimpleSync to sync the POS and the Online orders. Cheap and easy

What about if you increase all prices by, say, 30%, and then offer a 30% discount for any in-person purchases.

We need this too!  We go to trade shows and don't sell for different prices than we do online.  We would like to start hiring sales teams and we don't want our products to be on sale every weekend or every trade show.

We have over 1,300 products so duplicating makes it really complicated.  If we did and used Simple Sync, I think it would mess up our inventory forecasting with Stocky.  This seems like such an easy programming fix.

We just solved this problem for our situation.

We discount all of our products by $5, but that doesn't always work out to the same % off.  So what we did is we created discount buttons labeled, "1 item, 2 items, 3 items, etc." and discounted by "$5, $10, $15, etc."

We sell at full price in store (with discounts for club members, applied manually on the POS), but a constant discount 10% online website. Is there a way to achieve this without duplicate inventory weirdness?

Duplicate the product(s) you want to be both online and on POS. Keep the same sku for both, you can have different prices, tags, types,

Hi, did you find a solution for this?

A bit leftfield, but turn the discount off in the morning during shop hours and turn it on again at the end of the day so that online customers in the evening see it.

Unfortunately there's no way to variably price an item and charge it according how it's purchased. To track inventory, Square Sync needs to be enabled which means item prices from the POS will sync to your Online Store also.

I need this function as well! Have you found a viable solution since this post @SUIT ?

I need this function as well! Cant believe I took all this time building my site and integrating it with my POS and that function is unavailable. I just assumed it was offered. I would have never gone with Shopify if I knew this. Has anyone found a viable solution yet?

Same issue. what's the point of having multiple locations if you can't have different prices at different locations? Here is our problem; we have an online store that's 1 location. BUT we also do outdoor events 2nd location we call it EVENT LOCATION which we want to be selling the same items from our online store just maybe in another state or city. We want our web site store 1 to have the regular prices and not change. But when we go to events, the 2nd location we want to offer a discount on most items but not have our website store 1 price change online. We tried the duplicate product then turned off the website location in the POS and only have the event location on BUT we also want to use the POS (iPad) to track inventory, and sales and use the barcode scanner to make it easy for us at events. But when we duplicate the item, we need the barcode to stay the same as it is on our website so when we return from an event we can put the items that did not sell back into our online store inventory. When we tested this with the barcode scanner we got an error saying duplicate barcode using the Shopify scanner so it won't work, it won't scan in or out if the barcode is the same (we also can't have different barcodes for the same product) So...... the only thing we can do which, is a COMPLETE TIME WASTER!!! is right before the event keep both locations live and manually markdown alllllllllllllllllllll the items we are taking to the event location which ultimately ends up marking down all the items on our website (which we do not want to happen but we have no choice). And keep in mind that after the event is over we have to again manually go back and RE-PRICE everything back to the normal price, so our website prices are correct and not discounted. Do that 2 times a month.. man, that's a lot of wasted time and money for our business. We can't figure out any workaround!! We have tried everything, I can't believe Shopify hasn't figured out a workaround for this. Seems like a much-needed application that a lot of small businesses needs? Let me know if anyone has a solution because this is lame!!!!

I would be happy to speak but the client does not have a huge budget. It would solve a problem for a lot of people

I think i prefer to make something based on monthly fees instead of some custom quotation. I prefer to impact more people as possible also as a proof of my self and my journey through Product Management and Develop.  How can we get in touch?
