    The Good

    • Plan Includes Online Store 
    • Easy Integration

    Plan Includes Online Store

    When you purchase Shopify’s POS system, Shopify will also include the online store software in the plan. The free online store is a great way to expand any business, plus it can be easy to commit to creating the online store because there isn’t an added cost to test out the online store option. Having an online store allows you to accept online payments and simplify operations with its centralized inventory. 

    Easy Integration

    Shopify offers different options to integrate your technology with its technology. The Shopify POS app works with iPhones, iPads, or Android devices. Shopify also offers a free credit card reader that will work with any smartphone or tablet, making the transition to using Shopify POS simple.

    The Bad

    • High Credit Card Rates

    High Credit Card Rates

    Shopify has one of the highest credit card rates compared to other POS systems. It is 2.9% plus $0.30 per US credit card swipe per online transaction when using the basic Shopify package. Although buying the more expensive monthly packages lowers the online and in person credit card fees, but the pricing is still above average. 

    The Bottom Line

    Shopify POS is a good option for those selling in person who want the option to sell online. The free online site that is included in the POS plan is a good platform for those businesses wanting to build their online presence. We would recommend this system to small businesses that don’t require a complex set of features. For a basic POS system, Shopify is a good place to start.

    I sell art online with Shopify and I have found it very user friendly, and easy to use. In my opinion $29 is a small fee to pay every money for the free services they offer(like kit, which helps with thank you emails, marketing products, etc.) check out my shopify website to see for yourself
