Shopify Enters Mobile POS Market with Shopify POS

Shopify 140pxShopify has announced Shopify POS, an iPad-based point of sale system it says is designed to let anybody easily sell in-store at physical POS in addition to online.

Shopify POS marks a new frontier for Shopify as they branch out from helping people create ecommerce stores, to helping people run and grow businesses across all levels of commerce.

“Shopify is well-known as the world’s best platform used to create and manage an online store,” said Adam McNamara, Shopify Vice President of Product.

“But the future of retail isn’t online versus in-store; it’s a seamless combination of both. Shopify has transitioned from simply powering online sales to powering all commerce: online, offline, mobile, and everything in between.”

Before Shopify POS, merchants who wanted to run an online store as well as a brick-and-mortar retail store had to keep track of two sets of inventories, two product catalogs, and two payment systems.
