Pros

The greatest benefit that came from this software, for me, is the ability to conduct business, specifically, complete a payment transaction, no matter where you are located.
Square is an awesome piece of software to use. The retail side has great capabilities for sales, inventory, gift cards, rewards, and much much more.
Square is very simple to learn and use as an end user, and it has gain a lot of popularity recently, customers feel more and more comfortable with this system.

Pros

What's great about Shopify is that it is constantly improving and the costs remain the same. I'm sure that any issues I have now will only get smaller or fully solved.
Shopify has been great as a shopper because it helps me have all of my information in one place.
Also the way that the hands held card reader is shaped is very nice. The software itself integrates smoothly with my Shopify store, and it runs perfectly.

Cons

If I am to complain about something I would complain about the percentage I am giving back to square but that it the cost of doing business.
The only thing that has ever been slightly frustrating is the traditional card reader being sensitive when swiping cards. Sometimes I'll have to try 3-4 times to get it to register.
I dislike that it fails sometimes and it is not accessible at many different vendors and restaurants.

Cons

Inability to set up a variable-priced item. To do this, the item must be rung in as a "Quick Sale", so there is no identification of sold products or inventory tracking.
If I had to complain it would be that there are some things you can't customize that you might be able to with one of the self hosted carts such as magento, woocommerce, or even magento 2.
The customer support is abysmal. Shopify screwed up the tax rates.

Does the job

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, better than Shopify POS, but these systems still can improve.

Pros

Easy to use, most people use it so it's familiar to employees and customers, plus it's cheap to use as well.

Cons

The card readers can be finicky, not as easy to integrate with Shopify. Transaction fees are a bummer.

Make Sales From Anywhere

Reviewed 4 years ago

Square is really the only POS that allows you to enter product price by weight with decimals. For this reason alone, I have stuck with Square POS.

Pros

I use square POS when selling at Farmers Markets. Square makes it easy to collect payments from any location as long as you have internet/wifi. I also like that I can charge customers by weight (oz, lb, etc) instead of just single (whole) unit price.

Cons

Finding products in the interface is not as seamless as other POS systems I have used. For example, shopify pos has a great interface showing product images, etc for POS. I wish Square would update their interface.

I loved the square POS system. the owner of the shop I work at brought in a POS that was seriously a POS. It was terrible! Square is so user-friendly. It's light and so simple to use!

Cons

We did have an issue with an outage. The other disadvantage was not everyone used the inventory tab they used the manual keypad so inventory was less easy to track. But, that is a training issue, not software.

This is a wonderful POS system for small businesses. Their rate is very low and there is no monthly cost on top of it (unlike other POS systems). You will also get access to other software and service through square at a reduced rate from other similar systems, making this a perfect set up for small businesses.

Pros

Square POS is the best option for small business. In the end, you will be paying less for this we service than with with POS systems, including the cost of you register system. POS gives you so much and access to so much more for such little cost.

Pros

Where to start?! Square makes the ability to receive payments seamlessly effortless. The Point of Sale system is hands-down one of the best, if not the best in the market. One of my favorite aspects about the POS is there is no long contracts and all one needs is internet access. The Square software includes everything a shop owner needs - inventory, discounts, employee management, etc, while the POS handles the exchange of funds.

Cons

There is not really a con to the Square POS system. I have referred many of my clients to use Square POS and they are all satisfied.

I really wish you using the software however it also offers somebody just starting their eCommerce business flexibility because you can be online and offline simultaneously. Implementation costs of website and also point-of-sale system is negligible if you have high demand for your products.

Pros

It's really seamless on how the customer is notified with shipments, product back orders and also inventory so that they can make an informed decision at point of sale.

Cons

There's always an issue with applications in that you would need to go to the main website to pull certain order shipments and tracking sales reports beyond 3 months.

Why I like Shopify POS

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, my experience with Shopify POS has been undeniably positive. The platform has provided us with a user-friendly and efficient point of sale solution that has significantly improved our business operations.

Pros

It offers several benefits that make it a positive choice for businesses. It provides a user-friendly interface, allowing merchants to easily manage sales, track inventory, and process payments in a streamlined manner. With its seamless integration with other apps, it makes our business run more effectively.

Cons

One aspect that we have noticed that could be challenging for users looking to implement Shopify POS would be the potential cost. While it offers a range of features and benefits, the associated expenses, such as transaction fees and monthly subscription charges, can accumulate and could become costly. It's important for businesses to carefully consider their budget and needs to ensure that the pricing structure aligns with their expectations.

Perfect for a Single-Till Business

Reviewed 5 years ago

We needed a Point of Sale system that tied in with our web-store, Shopify was perfect for both. The PoS app makes it easy to handle sales out on the shop floor too.

Pros

The ease of finding products within the graphic front-end, including the product images to make identifying niche products easier for staff within great industry knowledge.

Cons

The product set-up can be quite timely without a built in bulk-image management platform.

Shopify POS

Must have POS Software

Reviewed a year ago

Although there are some minor imperfections, I continue to utilize Shopify POS because it remains the most user-friendly point-of-sale solution for my business. Moreover, I find the pricing to be reasonable.

Pros

Setting up and utilizing Shopify POS proved to be a fast and effortless process. Since I had already established my online store using Shopify, all I had to do was install Shopify POS on my iPhone, and I was ready to begin selling. The seamless integration between my store and the POS system for managing products, customers, and orders made the entire management process highly efficient.

Cons

Honestly, I don't have any significant criticisms about Shopify. If I were to mention a minor drawback, it would be that not all features are included by default, and additional apps are required for certain functionalities unless you opt for Shopify Pro.

It works okay but not great

Reviewed 3 years ago

It does the job, but I think Square is overall better.

Pros

I like that it integrates with Shopify. The card readers are high quality. The app interface is okay.

Cons

The app is different on iPad versus iPhone. The iPad version is way better, but we do mostly outdoor events, so we use phones and it's a bummer.

I can do the same on Square for FREE

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Integrates with my Shopify Store (Something Square Cant), great for inventory across online offline, integrates with Epson printers.

Cons

PRICE, Shopify POS is expensive and does not require the price tag when compared to the competition. IT has an app store but those apps addon more price to the monthly fees. Also, the Shopify POS's payment terminal doesn't support TAP which is pretty bad. Switched to Square and never going back.

Shopify POS with Mobile Pay Options.

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's easy to train our volunteers to use and troubleshoot. We use both the little white Shopify dip and swipe reader and the sturdier-looking black tap dip and swipe reader and have no trouble with either. Set up is easy and payments are are recorded as received on different readers, making it easier to sort the source of sales, if not the item.

Pros

Easy to set up and define products for sale at a physical store. Located on a 55 acre site, we need it about once a month in multiple locations simultaneously, so it wouldn't necessarily pay to set up connected accounts. We need it to use mobile credit card readers over wi-fi and without a dedicated phone or i-pad with a SIM card. We bought 2 refurbished ipads, 2 kinds of mobile card readers, extended the reach of our wi-fi, and we were ready to go!

Cons

Inability to set up a variable-priced item. To do this, the item must be rung in as a "Quick Sale", so there is no identification of sold products or inventory tracking.

Easy for occasional pop ups!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Overall, the system was quick and easy to use. When doing holiday pop ups, a fast checkout is a must! We don't use barcodes, but I love that that's an option to make it even faster. But being able to search quickly for a item and add to cart worked great. Love that the card reader is chip enabled too!

Pros

I love that I'm able to search items by title or sku.

Cons

Sometimes when I would click on Quick Sale, it wouldn't allow me to create a title for the item. I had to back out of it a couple times and try again.
