Puts Square to shame

Anytime I have had any issue or problem, customer service has been the best in helping me work threw it (computer illiterate remember) plus they always have options for me to make changes that potentially make it easier on my end, or sometimes even cheaper.

Pros

I like the fact that it is a lot more detailed in the inventory set up because it allows you to actually separate you retail store into sections where square did not allowing check out to be easier and faster if you are having issues with or do not use UPC/SCU coding. I also like the fact that you can enter your inventory purchases which automatically adds it to your inventory counts and then you can enter your payout/paying for such accounts

Cons

The inventory entry durning initial setup. Because I am computer illiterate, I am still struggling to get it set up correctly and you do not have the option to go in and erase everything to start over.

Reasons for Choosing ShopKeep

Because they had no issues with the type of inventory we chose to carry.

Review of ShopKeep

I went from a complex system that I purchased for over $100,000 to ShopKeep. What a joy to have a system that is so easy to use and not time consuming to do the task at hand. Yet it provides so much information to know exactly where your company stands. Love everything about ShopKeep.

Pros

My favorite thing about ShopKeep is That it can give you so much information about your numbers yet it is so easy to operate.

Cons

I know this sounds crazy but I really don't have any negatives with this system.

Reasons for Choosing ShopKeep

Clover seemed to be geared more toward restaurants and their fees were higher. Shopify was more expensive. I got a much better rate for my credit cards with ShopKeep. The people are always so helpful and really go above and beyond. If someone didn't know the answer to my question they would find out and get back to me. Rep was key to getting everything set up and running and how best to apply it to my business. It was like speaking with a friend. She was amazing. She would always contact me when something new would come out if she thought it would benefit me and my company. ShopKeep is thorough, user friendly, and provides a plethora of information that is helpful with running my business. Sounds silly but ShopKeep feels like family! They treat me like they would want to be treated and it doesn't get any better than that in my book. I have been in business for 25 years and have never experienced anything like it! Thank you for this opportunity to share my experience!

A must for any business

ShopKeep has been a great experience and a huge asset for my store. It integrates easily even for new store owners and is reliable and easy to learn.

Pros

What I like most is that ShopKeep shows me what's trending in my store and my best sellers. This makes it really easy to know what I should reorder and what items I should mark down. The interface is also really easy for my staff to use whether it's updating our inventory or completing transactions.

Cons

There isn't much I can think of that I don't like, except I wish the inventory shows the date when we put an item into our inventory for the first time, so we can easily identify what the oldest items in our inventory are.

SALES TAX NIGHTMARE!

We learned to be very careful, software isn't perfect and Shopkeep fail miserably.

Pros

Calculated sales tax correctly until latest update. Price just changed to $69 a month which is a scam to charge for crazy sales tax errors

Cons

DO NOT USE SHOPKEEP They have a new update to the sales tax calculations. We are a print shop and sell .10 copies and .05 cents special paper. I rang up 500 color copies @.20 total is $100 State sales tax is 8.25% Most people could add the sales tax in their head for this amount.....Total should be $108.25 Well guess what good ol Shopkeep says on the iPad??? $110 How can you charge a customer $110 on a $100 taxable sale at 8.25? That is illegal to over charge a customer on sales tax. Shopkeeps response is the engineers set up the sales tax to calc on each line item. So that means .02 cents tax which is rounded up. 500 x .02 is $10. Because Shopkeep fails to program the software better I just overcharged customer $1.75 Shopkeep has the worst customer service. They have no management and when I called to ask how to fix sales tax, they sent me to someone named Craig to cancel service. 3 days after cancelling service they will lock you out of the back office. Shopkeep is the biggest scam to the customer ever. I set up Square account and it adds sales tax perfectly. If Shopkeep can't figure out how to calculate sales tax - why would any business use them? I suggest every business should ring up a bunch of sample orders and watch the sales tax go wildly off. The poor CEO of Shopkeep is going to get canned fast if he allows sales tax errors system wide. Fix your sales tax Shopkeep!

Response from ShopKeep

Replied June 2017

Hi Kevin, I'm on the Product team at ShopKeep and saw your feedback related to how we calculate tax. I wanted to provide a response so that you understood our stance and why this an improvement. We've progressed from calculating tax on the subtotal to the more modern per-unit tax calculation which provides better accuracy. This is the recommendation of the Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) governing board's recommendation, which is the body that assists states to administer a simpler and more uniform sales and use tax system. The SST also states that both methods of tax accounting are acceptable, even though per-unit is preferred, as long as practiced consistently. I hope that helps. We very much appreciate the feedback. Best, Hank

Great product

Makes the business run quite smoothly. I thoroughly enjoy using this product.

Pros

This software was very easy to set up, update and use. It continues to evolve to make operations glitch free. No manual is required.

Cons

I do not have any negative comments about this software. I was surprised that I could set it up with little or no instructions.
