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.

There is also a free trial that allows you to make sure that ShopKeep is right for your business before making a

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.
