Why ShopKeep?

Best pricing

ShopKeep is our pick for the best POS system for retailers because it is a cloud-based service that offers the best pricing with tons of capabilities to help you run and grow your business.

ShopKeep is a comprehensive iPad POS system for retailers that's packed with big business features at a small business price. It aims to keep pricing simple and affordable, so it charges a flat fee of $49 per month per register. Whereas other POS systems have tiered, feature-based pricing structures and charge additional fees for premium customer support, ShopKeep's one-size-fits-all pricing comes with all capabilities and 24/7 phone and email customer support. There are no maintenance or service fees, so you're not hit with surprise fees in the future.

We also like that ShopKeep works on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis. This means it doesn't require any long-term contracts, so you don't risk paying a hefty earl- termination fee if you decide to switch to a different POS system.

ShopKeep's hardware bundles can also help you save money. Other POS setups can cost you more than $2, 000 for the most basic setup, but ShopKeep's starter kit includes all the peripherals you need, for around $800. This includes a cash drawer, printer, iPad holder and Bluetooth credit card reader. You also have the option of using existing hardware or to shop around on your own to save even more money.
