The Shopify Point of Sale app can be downloaded and used with iOS devices like iPhone and iPad running iOS 10 or higher, and also with Android devices that feature Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher.
As mentioned, the software comes with a free credit card reader in the US, which is plugged into your smartphone or tablet, or there is now the option of a wireless Bluetooth chip and swipe card reader, which is currently free for all new POS users.
In Australia, there is no Shopify card reader currently available, with the software instead connecting to third party payment terminals.
Meanwhile, in the US, users can either source their own compatible hardware
like barcode scanners, cash drawers, and receipt printers or alternatively buy or rent them through Shopify.
In Australia, these products along with the card reader, will need to be sourced through compatible third-party providers.
