Getting started with Shopify POS and app extensions

Shopify POS has several different extension points that can make apps available to merchants when and where they need them most.

Full-screen POS apps are full-screen takeovers that allow your app to take advantage of the full display on the device where POS is running. POS Links allow your app to push and pull data from the cart page or pull data from the order completed page, and Cart Extensions allow merchants to run promotions and reward customers using data provided by your app.

Getting started

The first thing that you need to do is enable the POS Extension so that your app is available to be embedded in Shopify POS.

This is done through your partner dashboard, as described below:

  1. Go to your Partner Dashboard.
  2. Click Apps in the sidebar.
  3. Click the name of your app.
  4. Click Extensions.
  5. Click Manage Extension Areas.
  6. In the Shopify POS section, click Enable Extension Area.
