The Shopify team just proudly announced the all-new Shopify POS system. In this post, we’ll give you a rough overview of all the highlights and explore the new opportunities it offers for developers to build POS integrations.
Shopify POS System
Any retailer can benefit from an omnichannel solution that synchronises inventory, customers, orders and more – especially in these challenging times. That’s why Shopify has now unveiled the all-new Shopify POS. To cut a long story short, it’s a simpler and more customizable solution for retailers.
- POS Apps
Apps on a smart grid interface allow you to highly customize the POS to suit your needs. POS functionality can easily be extended through a growing number of apps that cover everything from in-store appointment booking and loyalty programs to foot traffic monitoring.
- Better Customer Experience
The new POS comes with a curbside pickup functionality. As a result, merchants can create customized instructions for pickup at the curb in front of their brick and mortar stores. This allows shoppers to shop online and pick up their orders safely while complying to physical distancing protocols.
- More Comfort For Shop Staff
To help your store staff, the all-new POS includes a global search to find products, customers, and orders across all locations and online. It also comes with an improved UI, user roles and permissions, and an option to ship from multiple locations such as warehouse or other stores. Shipping rates are automatically calculated at checkout.
- Better Tracking & Store Performance
You can now track and monitor key performance indicators such as average order value, keep track of your daily sales, spot trends, and easily identify top sellers.
- Customer Profiles
Customer profiles are now more detailed and include lifetime spend, loyalty points accumulated, and other indicators via customizable tags. This is ideal for customer segmentation in marketing campaigns and for personalized interaction with customers to create brand loyalty.
Special Offer: The new POS version is available right now, and pro features are free until October 31, 2020.
