To help businesses of all sizes complete deals with clients anywhere, Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) just released Shopify POS Go. This technology helps businesses provide a better in-store experience for their patrons by accessing consumers’ purchase histories, notes, and feedback. Despite that, Shopify stock declined.

The POS Go by Shopify has a built-in barcode scanner that enables retailers to begin checkouts from anywhere in the shop, bypassing the need for customers to wait in line at billing counters.

It would allow retailers to accept tap, swipe, and chip card payments without additional hardware. They can also use Shopify Payments and Wi-Fi to safely collect customer payments.

With the rise of e-commerce, brick-and-mortar stores are looking for point-of-sale software solutions, and Shopify has now released POS Go to satisfy this need. Several well-known companies, including Beyond Yoga, Our Place, and James Perse, used Shopify’s POS Pro solution during the second quarter, helping the firm reap the benefits of this growing trend.

To Increase Revenue, Shopify Expects Retail Market Expansion

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Shopify stock saw a surge in its e-commerce business as major corporations and mom-and-pop shops turned to online platforms to compensate for the temporary loss of retail market access.

Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) was gaining popularity before the economy recovered and traditional retailers began regaining their former clientele. The present market situation has been exacerbated by raging inflation and likely signals of recession, which has hindered growth in the e-commerce business.

There was a $41.8 million adjusted operating deficit in the second quarter due to non-GAAP operating expenditures increasing by 75.7% year over year to $845.9 million.

Shopify stock price has dropped 78.8 percent year-to-date, far worse than the 35.6 percent drop seen by the Zacks Internet Services sector over the same period.
