Can I Use My Own Hardware Shopify POS?

Last updated on October 2, 2022 @ 5:04 am

You’ve probably seen the sleek, iPad-based Shopify POS in action and wondered if you could use your own hardware. The answer is yes!

Shopify is built to be flexible and work with a variety of different hardware setups. This means that you can use your own hardware with Shopify POS, as long as it meets a few simple criteria.

First, your hardware must be compatible with the Shopify POS software. This software is designed to work specifically with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices running iOS 11 or later. If you’re using an Android device, you’ll need to use a third-party POS system.Shopify has partnerships with several Android-based POS providers, so be sure to check out our app store for options.

PRO TIP: If you are using your own hardware with Shopify POS, please be aware that Shopify is not responsible for any damages that may occur to your hardware. Use at your own risk.

Second, your hardware must be able to connect to the internet. Shopify POS is a cloud-based system, which means that it relies on an internet connection to function properly. If you don’t have a reliable internet connection, we recommend using a third-party POS system that can run offline.

Lastly, your hardware must meet Shopify’s minimum requirements. These requirements are in place to ensure that Shopify POS runs smoothly and efficiently on your devices. For more information on these requirements, please see our support documentation.
