A POS system for the iPad!

Yesterday, I sat in on a demo of a new software that we heard about.  It’s called ShopKeep.  This software is a Point of Sale system that operates on your iPad and is accessed through the cloud. I have to say, it’s pretty cool.

With ShopKeep POS, you can add your items to the system and set default prices.  Once your items are setup, cashiers can easily choose the items to add to the sale by clicking the button for that item or scanning the item in.  If you want to track your customers, you can easily add the customer name to the sale.  Then, the cashier picks a payment type (works with most major credit card processors) and can add a gratuity if need be.  Upon completion of the sale, the receipt can be emailed or printed for the customer.

If you are a coffee shop, bakery, lunch counter, etc you can add modifiers to your items that will prompt the cashier to ask the customer how they want their item. If some choices would increase the price of the item, ShopKeep will also automatically upcharge any modifiers that you set.  Talk about an easy way to add the bacon and hold the ketchup!

In the back office, managers/owners can utilize the dashboard to manage the inventory as well as the employees and time clock.   Robust reporting gives you a full view as to what is going on in your business.

You can completely customize your register in that you can choose from various colors of iPad stands and you can also add a cash drawer, receipt printer and credit card swipe.

Please take a look at the video below to give you a better idea of how ShopKeep operates.  If you would like more information, please feel free to reach out to us!

      Hi Pablo,
      Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. Unfortunately, at this point, there is no way to invoice customers. It is all “point of Sale” type purchases were payment is taken right at the time of the sale.

  2. Hi, I read your blog post and i think ShopKeep is good POS for small retail stores. Could you please tell me if ShopKeep can only be used in only iPad or is it available for other devices too?

      Hi Larry

      ShopKeep is designed for iPad. There are a few apps that work with ShopKeep for other devices but the primary app is for iPad.

      Thanks for reading.


  3. Hi,

    I am in debate over this APP which I have tried and really like, and the QB app for retailers. I have used and seen in use the ShopKeep APP and am wondering which would work best for our purpose… I operate remotely with cell service, in AK, where we sell t shirts, hats, souvenirs, and tours. Very basic inventory. The trick here is space, and time per transaction. We operate at a very fast pace, and seconds can add up to minutes and lost sales… In your opinion, without asking to choose since each has an application, which would suit best?

      Hi Shane,

      Thanks for taking the time to contact us. Which QB app are you using? QB Mobile, QB Online, GoPayments for POS?

      Let me know so I can better give you my thoughts.
