Shopify POS now available for free on Android

Shopify POS, a mobile credit card payment processing solution, has made its way to Android. With this, you'll be able to turn your Android-powered smartphone into a mobile point of sale system to process credit cards, send receipts and much more. There are a number of options, like Square, already available for processing payments on the go, but each one offers some slightly different features for merchants.

With Shopify POS, you'll be able to see all of your transactions from wherever you are. That's right, no need to copy mobile transactions to another register, they will just appear there. You can compare stats from all of your sales channels, explore detailed reports and see which products are most popular, all with ease. It is free to get started with Shopify as a merchant. Shopify has plans starting at $9 a month, and charges up to 2.9 percent of each transaction, plus $0.30 fee. Square and others offer very similar rates, with fees up to 3.5 percent along with a $0.15 fee per transaction.

All you need to do is download and install the app, register an account and then you can request your free reader. You can download the Shopify POS app from Google Play now.
