ShopKeep is a full point-of-sale system using an iPad instead of a cash register. The ShopKeep app is free, but it does require a monthly charge. With ShopKeep, you’ll be able to ring up customers on a screen customized for your products, print a paper receipt, open the cash drawer for change, take credit cards (with the iDynamo device and service), manage inventory, update pricing, and have real-time access to sales numbers from the web. You can even keep ringing sales when the internet is down; data will sync as soon as the internet is available again. ShopKeep is ideal for coffee shops, bakeries, mall kiosks, and the system works for a single or multiple stores/locations. With the hardware, an iPad, and the monthly subscription, these shops will have a full POS system at a fraction of the cost of more traditional POS systems. The ShopKeep website offers a variety of hardware stands, cash drawers, and receipt printers to complete your setup.
