Acclivity's Checkout Point of Sale v4, an update of the Mac point of sale software used by business around the world, sports over 45 new or enhanced features, a faster image processing engine, and Shopify syncing for e-commerce users.
The upgrade includes technical, under-the-hood enhancements that deliver increased performance and stability. And the tight integration between Checkout and Shopify provides stores and boutiques with an end-to-end solution for selling their wares on- and off-line.
The new Shopify connector puts a leading e-commerce platform with a long list of third-party plug-ins within affordable reach of Checkout users. Equally, Shopify users who have a bricks and mortar store now have the option of linking their web store with the inexpensive Mac point of sale app.
