Our POS comes with full inventory management
Unlike Shopify, Lightspeed offers a complete inventory management system. Create bundles, POs, serialized items and products with multiple variations.
We give you full control of your purchasing
Shopify is missing this core retail feature. With Lightspeed, you can create purchase orders and instantly send them to the vendor with a single click.
Process special orders / layaways for free
Shopify forces you to purchase add-ons to do this. Lightspeed lets you order products that aren’t in stock and put them on hold for customers, all for free.
We don't take a cut of your sales
Shopify charges a separate transaction fee if you don’t use Shopify Payments. Lightspeed won’t, no matter what payment provider you choose.
The important features are built in
Unlike Shopify, Lightspeed’s plans have key features you need built into the system at no additional cost.
You get our full support, all the time
We don’t believe anyone should pay for support. Get free personalized training and 24/7 phone, email and chat support included with any purchase.
Get going with Lightspeed faster.
