  • Limited Admin


    By siulnomar
    This app looks great from the cover but the reality is that it lacks a lot of things for a high volume retail store, this app is meant for online sales. It has no filter to “last month” when doing analytics on the shop app, you must use ANOTHER app to figure results on. It’s not SIMPLE to make returns when a customer has already returned from the same ticket, it makes you do it on ANOTHER app or webpage which is a waste of time and if my employees don’t have my account password they can’t process returns fairly. The app doesn’t let you change the seller after the sale is made if it was entered by error, the only option is to return abs make the sale again thus affecting the KPIs of the store. The app won’t let you change the tender type if you entered it incorrectly, a return has to be made to fix it and then make the sale again. It’s just a very limited app that you don’t have full control of the system and your sales. Another thing is that when an exchange is made, the money gets removed from the actual day you sold it and moved to the day you exchanged it, this should only happen to the amount over that the customer is paying (if that’s the case). I really don’t recommend this for a busy place where many things can happen and the limited system won’t allow you to quick fix things. Customer service mostly won’t help you since the app is so limited that they don’t even know how to help.
  • Design is not user friendly


    By claypaws
    I get that new software is going to tiles because grids are so what....90s but seriously this does not make a user friendly checkout process. If the designers want tiles then why not create the feature to add a grid under a tile for example my location: “space A” so everything I sell is for “space A” tile created as a grid. Then more tiles can be used for other functional use. I watched the video and they lack information needed for small businesses that work pop up location like art fairs and such. Shopify I rave to others about how simple and user friendly everything is and this update is crap. Why change a system that works with the grid and before holiday season.
  • Messing up when I need to move quickly>:/


    By infinitythuser
    I’ve been using the app for over a month now and everything has been smooth until the last week or 2. When I type in the 1st word of a product to bring it up quickly, product is nowhere to be found and I have to manually go and search for it when I’ve got customers waiting to swipe their card. Some products just didn’t pop up at all and I have to explain to customer that receipt will show a different product but price will still be the same. Not very good.
  • Don’t expect much, they will let you down sooner or later


    By THELAWHERE
    Shopify trick you into thinking this is the best all around software for small business owners at the beginning, and just before the holiday season they give you a big price jump; If you don’t want to go with the new pricing, they cut your service that you have been using for over a year to bare minimum (lite). Not only we don't get a break for the pandemic, they are making our life even more difficult. We are now on Shopify lite, and guess what, they took away the exchange function. Do you know any successful retail boutique store that doesn't provide exchange services?
  • Doesn’t show all of the products


    By llbcjc
    When I type in a product it doesn’t always pull it up but it’s clearly available in the system. This proves to be a problem while my customers are waiting in line to pay for their items...they said they fixed this issue but they in fact did not.
  • Horrible update


    By hc user
    What was the point of this horrible unnecessary update?!? Where’s daily current total, do I need to add up each sale on my phone to see how much we are so far? Before I’ve had all my store items on the screen, so I can just click on one and add it. Nooow, with those tiles, to have them all on the main screen, I need to do it MANUALLY ONE BY ONE (to add it to the main screen). What if there are 300 items let’s say?!? Why “accepts marketing” option in the receipt is ON by default? Those are just few things that really made me hate this app after 1 day of using it. Oh, and the price that went up.
  • Having issues.


    By MedHeadz
    All the sudden the app doesn’t work. Won’t update. And now the app isn’t even showing as an icon on my phone but it still says it’s updating in the App Store.... This app is very useful to my everyday life and now it’s just a burden to my cc sales when I drop off clothing in person... please help.
  • Give us back the tiles!


    By MoreLikeDumbGrid
    The new “Smart Grid” is anything but, forcing a product search to show up in an alternate pop up search menu instead of just narrowing down options on the home screen is the opposite of streamlined, and forcing the creation of a button to apply rewards instead of connecting it directly to customer accounts adds complications that just aren’t necessary. If there were a way to keep this app how it was before the update, or “new design”, I would. As it is, I’m looking for alternate options.
  • On the fence


    By Love That Spice
    While I love the sleek new look, I notice a few things have been taken away and now requires a paid upgrade to Pro. Something as simple as the ability to send the cart to a customer is no longer available unless you pay to upgrade? It’s been free for the 8 years I’ve been using it! Maybe I have more to learn so I will update my review but for now, I give it 3 stars
