Shopify pos lite vs pro

Asked 8 months ago

What does everyone think, is it worth upgrading to pro from Shopify pos lite? What are the pros & cons of doing so?

There aren't any cons to upgrading to pos pro except for the subscription fee, but whether you should or not depends on how you plan on using it.

If you are a small-time seller, for example, just for a few hours a week at a market, and don't make much use of the pos, then the lite version does everything you'll need. However, if you run a full-time store, with constant foot traffic, you will be limited without the pro version.

Simple things like exchange processing, custom printed receipts, and options for customers to buy products online and pick them up in-store, or buy in-store and have the item shipped to their address will all help expand your business, but are available only on pro.
