The list is compiled by Magestore’s experts based on our hands-on experience and tons of customer reviews.

Does Stripe have a POS?

No, Stripe has no complete POS systems.

Although Stripe Terminal has emerged as a usable POS for Stripe, it’s not a ready-to-use POS system. In other words, you’ll need some programming experience in Javascript, iOS, Android, and server-driven integration to set up and customize the terminal to meet your needs. To secure transactions, Stripe Terminal also offers many pre-certified Stripe POS readers with end-to-end encryption, which supports different types of in-person payments.

It’s worthwhile using Stripe Terminal if you just want to unify customers’ online and in-person payments and view sales and customers across channels. However, if your business needs more features to effectively operate daily, like managing inventory or tracking employees’ performance, Stripe Terminal isn’t qualified. In this case, purchasing a POS system integrated with Stripe to streamline the checkout process and automate daily operations is more optimal. This is particularly true for businesses with daily in-person activities or with omnichannel retailing.

magestore pos screen - web pos system

Before investing in a POS system integrated with Stripe, it’s worth considering some key factors below.

Your business needs: It’s a good idea to take your target customers, business models, and future development plans into consideration. Understanding who your customers are, what kind of payment methods they like, and how Stripe POS integration can help boost your business is critical.

Integration: The chosen POS system should integrate well with your existing apps and software or with the ones you might add. The POS had better speak to the Stripe payment processor as well as other apps and software.

POS software: Depending on the type and the size of the business you’re running, there are certain features that you’ll want to have in your POS system. Make sure that the software is compatible with Stripe too.
Most common desired features include:

  • Sales management
  • Order management
  • Inventory management
  • Reporting and analytics
  • Marketing activities
  • Customer loyalty programs

POS hardware: Hardware might cost a bundle, so consider carefully what type of hardware your business needs. Some popular hardware includes POS readers, barcode scanners, receipt printers, cash drawers, and POS machines. It’s also useful to check whether Stripe credit card processing equipment is compatible with the POS software.

Costs: You should balance between what you want, what your business needs, and what you can afford. Most POS systems now work well with Stripe, so there’s no need to bear a high cost for a Stripe POS. For cost-efficiency, you should go with a scalable and tailor-made POS as it allows you to easily add more features to fit your requirements when your business expands.

Ease of use: POS systems should help your business run smoothly rather than causing more headaches for your staff. Make sure to acquire an easy-to-use Stripe POS system so that your staff can easily onboard.

Stripe Terminal or POS with Stripe integration?

stripe terminal

Wondering which one is better for you, Stripe Terminal or POS systems integrate with Stripe?
Well, the answer depends on the type of business you’re running.

Stripe Terminal allows eCommerce businesses to accept in-person payment methods, integrating Stripe payments into their current checkout process. To put it another way, Stripe Terminal enables you to make the best use of Stripe payment processing to provide your customers with a unified online and offline payment experience.
As a result, Stripe Terminal is a good option if you’re an online-first retailer wishing to expand some brick-and-mortar stores which doesn’t require many software integrations. Though Stripe Terminal is flexible and completely customizable, you’ll need some developer skills and knowledge to customize and integrate the Terminal with your existing POS apps. You can use platform-specific software development kits or server-driven integration. There are also no-code options available.

Since the key feature of Stripe Terminal is to facilitate online payment, it may not be a go-to solution if you don’t have an online store or don’t accept online payments. A simple and out-of-the-box POS system integrated with Stripe would be a better fit. In case you need an omnichannel POS with more functions for your business, like syncing data across channels or tracking delivery and staff performance, it’s better to find a ready-to-use POS that can easily integrate with Stripe. Currently, there’s no difficulty finding a POS that supports Stripe payments, of which a popular name is Magestore POS.


POS systems integrated with Stripe vary considerably in prices and features, so it’s worth putting thought into which POS to choose. First, make sure the chosen POS matches your business needs. Then, you should check whether the POS software integrates smoothly with your existing software like Stripe. Remember to allocate your budgets carefully to avoid overpaying for what you don’t need.

Choosing the right POS for Stripe helps your business to process customers’ payments smoothly, thus saving time, boosting operation efficiency, and increasing sales. Whatever type of business you’re running, there’s always a proper choice for a POS system. Make sure to pick the right one.
