What is Point of Sale?

A point of sale (POS) system is a combination of hardware and software that enables merchants to take orders and accept payments in a real-world setting like a brick and mortar shop, food truck, or industry trade show.

Merchants who already have a POS solution can connect it to BigCommerce to sync inventory and order data. BigCommerce supports the most popular POS platforms in the industry:

  • Square
  • ShopKeep
  • Springboard Retail
  • Hike
  • AmberPOS

Ecommerce merchants looking to expand into the physical space are welcome to try out and use the supported POS solution that works best for them. Most POS apps feature a free trial.

See the Point of Sale section of our Apps Marketplace for all supported POS systems.

Go to Store SetupPoint of Sale to get to the Point of Sale Manager in your control panel.
