SHOPKEEP

POS Software Review



ShopKeep is a heavily featured IPad point of sale software application that can be scaled to meet the needs of any bar, restaurant, cafe, or tavern. This intuitive software is easy to setup, functions correctly right from the start, and seems to remain reliable in the busiest restaurant and bar environments. The ShopKeep interface is nicely laid out, with each function easy to manage, especially for new restaurants and bars with no previous POS software experience. This makes moving from an outdated cash drawer to a much more technology advanced IPad system like ShopKeep very easy. The ShopKeep POS system offers just about every feature you could want in your establishment and delivers it in a well thought out design, making training employees on the software a breeze. Being backed with 24/7 phone or email support, from their industry award winning support department not only helps ensure the initial setup of the software goes smoothly, but relieves the stress when launching the software live in your establishment. ShopKeep offers bundled POS hardware packages with substantial cost savings, so make sure to get a quote on their POS system packages if you are looking to purchase point of sale hardware.

PRICING: ShopKeep software pricing is very reasonable, starting at only $69 per station up to the first three stations and then the price per station drops for the 4th and beyond. The great thing about the pricing structure is everything is all-inclusive in the price including the 24/7 support and there is no contract required. There is also a free trial that allows you to make sure that ShopKeep is right for your business before making a commitment.

Starting From: $69.00 per month / billed anually
Pricing Model: Subscription (cloud based software / fully hosted)
Free Trial: Available (no credit card required)
Contracts: No contracts (cancel subscription at anytime)
Support: 24/7 support is included with all pricing plans

CREDIT CARD PROCESSING: ShopKeep has built-in credit card processing capability and offers their own merchant account option called ShopKeep payments. If this was the only option available, then we would take issue with that but luckily ShopKeep can also integrate a large number of different merchant account providers so you do you choices when it comes to processing credit cards through the platform. The merchant accounts that currently integrate with ShopKeep are below, however if you have a different processor they may be able to integrate them.

INTEGRATIONS: ShopKeep is a pretty all-around feature packed piece of POS software, however every restaurant and bar has different needs to operate efficiently and the lack of third party integrations could make it a deal breaker for some. ShopKeep does currently have two integrations, QuickBooks for accounting and BigCommerce for website development and selling online. QuickBooks is a staple in the accounting world, so there's no surprise here that ShopKeep integrates with it and if you already use QuickBooks, then that might make your decision that much easier. Integrating with BigCommerce is another big plus, as you can easily design a nice website and tie it into the ShopKeep system for online ordering, selling merchandise, or any other online eCommerce you need.

OVERALL: We really like the ShopKeep platform for use in a restaurant or bar environment. It has an easy learning curve, the support is top notch, and for what you get the software is priced extremely well. If you need multiple stations then the upfront costs of the IPad point of sale hardware can begin to get expensive. equipment financing might be an option for you, however factor in that additional expense before making any final decisions. Overall we are pleased with ShopKeep's software performance, functionality, and dependability.
