Lightspeed Retail POS app

In our new shopping era, commerce needs to be unified. Creating a unique customer experience that remains consistent across every touch point, is the key to success. And at the heart of it all? A mobile point of sale. Intelligent software that has powerful back-office functionality and the finesse of a mobile checkout - giving you control over your entire business within just a few tabs.

The new Lightspeed Retail POS app is the link between running your business and building customer loyalty. We’ve combined the power and flexibility of Lightspeed Retail that manages inventory, advanced sales features (like special orders, layaways, work orders), control employee privileges, and run reports - with our streamlined iPad checkout experience. The result - the unification of design, simplicity, and intuitive functionality.

You’ve thought about running your entire store from an iPad - now you can.
