POS Australia - what EFTPOS are you using?

Hello All, 

 

We are an online baby clothing store & been running a Shopify store successfully for the past few months. We are going to head along to a few local markets to help get our name out locally & wondering what you guys are using for EFTPOS payments with Shopify POS. I am considering either Paypal card reader, or getting a portable card reader form our bank. Has anyone got any feedback on the Paypal units? 

 

Its a pity the Shopify POS card reader isn't available in Australia yet. 

 

Thanks 

Emma

We have our website and 2 shops now with Shopify Pos. Currently using Tyro to make the payments but Shopify POS only shows external payment, meaning we have to double up on entering the transactions. When we're busy there's no time to enter twice so there's always transactions missing on Shopify. When will integration with an EFTPOS terminal happen? You have it available in USA, UK and Canada. Why not AUS? Thanks

Hi I am using Tyro as well and wondering if you found a way to sync it with your Shopify POS app? We have a busy store that's been closed all through Covid and we re-open next week and I cannot figure out how to link our Tyro Merchant terminal to the app - if we can't link them I am going to have to cancel using Shopify POS and I am freaking out!

Did you work out how to use Tyro with Shopify POS?

A couple of years down the track and Shopify POS still only offers their own integration to a Wise Pad.

It’s super old PayPalHere technology that is not at all suited to Australia as lots of people

still use Eftpos cards here (without a chip) and these readers won’t accept them. 2 years since we transitioned to Shopify POS and we are still double handling EVERY transaction by having to enter the sales amount manually on an external Tyro terminal - it’s bullshit that a company the size of Shopify in a market as big as Australia can’t support us with adding an option to integrate our external terminals rather than making us manual handle.
