July 31, 2017

The point of sale (POS) system is crucial to any business regardless of their industry. Among hundreds of POS services, today I’m going to talk specifically about ShopKeep from my personal experience with the service.The review includesin-depth analysis of the individual aspects that make this service great. If you read the whole article, you will understand ShopKeep’s features, accessibility &pricing information.


ShopKeep is one of the top POS services for retailers and merchants. It is basically software that has the capability of completing various tasks for retailers. The software makes the payment and transaction system easier than it ever was.

It runs via iOS devices. Even if you don’t have a team or a server based computer system to manage the accounts, you can keep the track with only your iPad. That’s why ShopKeep is ideal for small businesses. The company is constantly updating their features and services to improve the usability. It develops a hybrid framework so that the user can run it from any place by iPad and sync data from the cloud both during on-time & off-times.

This app is developed especially for small retailers such as; Mini Coffee Shop, Pastry shop, Small grocery shop, etc. It is also perfect for;bakeries, food vans shops and so on. ShopKeep has been serving tons of small and medium companies since 2008. They earned huge customer faith and high ratings that keep them on the top among other POS service providers.


After researching their marketing strategy, we can say that the ios app is perfect and precise for users even if they are not knowledgeable about recent tech. Once you create your account, the setup will start automatically. After completing the installation process, you need to update the inventory list either by adding product by product or by CSV import. The app contains instruction videos so that you can learn to use it easily. The recently updated version of ShopKeep’s app is more user responsive than the previous one.


ShopKeep has the simple costing model. It’s a no-contract basis pricing model or pay-per-usage package so that you can use the service without buying a long term subscription. Plus you will get excellent customer support for your subscription.

Monthly Subscription Fee is only $69. For each subscription you will get:

  • 24 hours of online support. If you upgrade the subscription further, you will get phone support too.
  • Free access to ShopKeep Pocket iOS App
  • Free expert support for first 60 days

Customer Support

ShopKeep’s customer support is very responsive and efficient in solving your problems. You can also send them an email including your question or complaint if they are not available at the moment. They will respond to your emails almost instantly.


The service charges an extra price for more than one registration. It depends on the size of registers, and you can’t store more registers than you’ve bought. Secondly, it can only be accessed through ios devices. Though you can use them in Windows and Mac OS with simulator or emulator app, it may slow your PC’s performance.

Overall Say

Considering the response time and its user-friendly interface, no POS can match their service.If you are an iPad or iPhone device user, ShopKeep is definitely the best pick for your business.
