Shopify has launched two point-of-sale (POS) solutions in Australia to empower merchants with the product and platform they need to design seamless, reliable and integrated in-store experiences.

Shopify POS Go is an all-in-one mobile POS handheld device which functions as a POS station, barcode scanner, and card reader, helping businesses process transactions without the need for additional hardware. 

For countertop setups, Shopify’s POS Terminal is also available to Australian retail businesses. The payment hardware provides a full-featured customer display, guiding buyers through purchase with clear flows for checkout, payment, PIN entry, tipping, and receipt selection. POS Terminal accepts tap, chip, and swipe payments at the counter, with Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity. 

Shopify managing director for APAC, Shaun Broughton said, “We know that unified commerce is more important, with our research showing a reasonably even spread between online and in-store preferences among consumers. But creating an efficient and differentiated in-store experience can often be quite challenging for merchants balancing outdated solutions that are disconnected from their online presence and back-office systems.

“With the launch of the POS Go and Terminal, we’re doubling down on in-store retail and are thrilled to support Australian businesses with our next-generation point-of-sale technology. Both products work seamlessly with Shopify’s ecosystem of tools, apps, and omnichannel data reporting to create a unified experience, both for our merchants and their customers.”
