Using Weighing Scales with Shopify POS

December 28, 2021

For many businesses that sell goods be weight Shopify POS has not been suitable.

However with the new App available on the Shopify App Store this has changed.

The below is the marketing from the App developer.

The most important I think is that you can connect scales tp your iPad and use the App to calculate prices from the scale weight.

Just put a price by say Kilo against the product, weigh it and the POS will come up with the sale price.

Easy to set up- a couple of cables- it basically converts the scale serial connection to wifi- it is very straightforward. The App costs US$19 per month plus US$ 15 for the scale integration per month.

 Any questions please call or email us.

Add sell-by-weight and sell-by-length items directly into your Shopify POS cart!

*Note: If you are using Android, the "New" Shopify POS for Android may cause issues with our app. We cannot guarantee smooth functionality with Android devices.

Our app enables stores of all kinds to sell products by weight and length in-person using Shopify POS - farmstands, grocery stores, butcher shops, spice shops, zero waste refill businesses, pet food stores, apothecaries, feed and farm supply stores, fabric outlets, nursery and garden centers, plus many more! Simply enter the total decimal quantity and select your item, and our app will automatically calculate the total price and insert that item into your Shopify POS cart, complete with the product's unit price and total quantity.

Do you need decimal support for a non-weight based unit of measure (e.g., lumber sold per bd/ft)? If so, email us as we may be able to accommodate!
