POS Pro Sweepstakes—another 10,000 reasons to go Pro

Just like every year, the holiday season arrives sooner than you think. But unlike every year, this holiday season presents new challenges and opportunities for your retail business. Whether it’s offering new services for customers like curbside pickup, redefining staff responsibilities to keep your team engaged, or putting powerful tools behind your inventory management strategy, having a point of sale that supports you is going to be integral this year. The Pro subscription for Shopify POS was built for the unique needs of brick-and-mortar retailers and offers tools to help you stay flexible and adaptable throughout the holiday season. 

The new POS Pro subscription offers enhanced features for:

  • Omnichannel selling: local pickup order management, ship to customer, exchanges
  • Staff management: unlimited staff PINs, custom roles and permissions
  • Inventory management: transfers, POs, demand forecasting, receiving, counts
  • Analytics: daily reporting, in-depth inventory analysis

    Assign the Pro subscription to your retail locations today and avoid any interruptions to Pro features when your free trial ends on October 31, 2020. Don’t worry, you won’t be billed until November 1 and you can remove the subscription at any time. Read on below to learn how to make your Pro subscription official.
