    Ive been reading a lot of reviews online and this is accurate. Ive been using livepos for a year now for my new business and i can say that they managed to impress me (again). Running retail stores and having kids is not easy, some days you need to run to the store for some problem and some days you need to stay at home for your family. It is not easy! luckily, i can manage my stores at home. update inventory, create promotions, even their 24/7 customer support is a great help if the store is in need of assistance.

    I saw livepos on a trade show and i was amazed on how they did the demo. Then after a year, i called them to try their pos. It was back in 2010. Since then, i switched all my stores to livepos. i can simply manage multiple location using the dashboard.

    My experience with livepos has been great ever since I opened my business. They have been helpful with everything. We grow every year because of LivePOS.

          I have been using this for the past 3 years now. Our corporate office switch us from our old POS system to LivePOS, 4 locations and counting. Features are undeniably great and you can always navigate the admin end using your mobile device

            I have been using this for over a year now and I with a couple of my colleagues are very comfortable with this software. It has made our lives very easy and we highly recommend this to anyone.

              What else do you want when you have LivePOS with you. This software made our lives easy and we are very happy and satisfied with this. Customer supports services offered are 5 star!

                we installed this, fought with it for 3 months, and toss it to the curb. We have been in business over 40 years and have installed several systems over the course of those years.
                Thought we should take a step forward into this cloud based world…it was the biggest mistake we hav emade in a long, long time. We have since installed Vend and it is not all we hoped it would be, (mostly we haven’t had enough time to really work with it) but it is like the top of th wrold compared to Live Pos….bad bad news…..do a trial…do two trials. or many three…it is not for anything of any size, business wise.

                  This was the WORST experince I have ever had. We have been in business for 44 years. We have install 7 systems in that time. small to big, simple and complex, as the business grew and changed and then as we downsized and simplified. We picked Live pos for many reason..we ran a trail for about 3 weeks, had many questions but thought most were the result of new hardware, new OS and of course the new program itself…IT WAS AWFUL!! and NO one NO ONE could get it right…FOUR times they changed how they want the excel files done…so we started over FOUR times…the last time (time five) I changed vendors The hardware never came…I said..go away…We changed to Vend and what an awesome bunch of folks. and the system is great. So good luck to the live folks and they will need it.

                    Hi guys, just came to update the good people at MM about our new 6.0 version and saw these postings.

                    While i understand the dilemma of having 8 products, if you walk into the Gap or any other retail store, every single product has its own individual sku. The reason for this is simple; If you allow the operator to choose a size and color, they can make mistakes.

                    Is it Small or Medium, is it blue? or deep grey?

                    Individual SKUs solve the above problem.

                    Shopify: I agree, we need to revamp our integration to do more, it is on our plate for this quarter.

                    Price: We recently introduced a $79 Plan, which gives you many more feature for the same amount of money. good deal.

                    If you are still in the market for a POS solution, give us a call, we released a lot of new things in the latest version.

                    My thanks.

                      I have been aggressively searching for a new cloud based POS to manage my 7 retail locations more easily. I looked hard at LivePOS and thought it was amazing in many ways, however it had 3 deal breakers for me.
                      #1 No matrix functionality. Crazy for a POS this advanced.
                      #2 For Shopify integration it requires a separate store/inventory. This defeats the whole purpose in my eyes. Instead of Shopify seeing all of my inventory across all 7 stores it would only see what was in the warehouse with inventory exclusively for Shopify. Might as well use Shopify on it’s own!
                      #3 Even if you decided to use LivePOS with Shopify the lack of Matrix support becomes an issue again. If you have a shirt in 2 colors and 4 sizes it would be listed as 8 different items, not one with 8 choices.
                      LivePOS is also one of the most expensive.

                          Hey Chris, I’m in the same dilemma as you. Was wondering if you found any better solutions?
