Ooooh! This is a big expansion for Shopify which has traditionally focused on online sales, now competing with Square and POS providers.

Dasha SivkovMaker@dasha_sivkov · Marketing @ Shopify
@elyesbenmrad We're exploring the best way to support in-person payments in markets like Canada. Today, we offer a swipe credit card reader as well as our Shopify POS + Moneris integration which supports chip, tap, and Interac on our Canadian hardware store.

@dasha_sivkov aren't a Canadian company? Why not support Canada from the start?
Dasha SivkovMaker@dasha_sivkov · Marketing @ Shopify
@carl_shaver We want to support Interac as part of a Canadian solution, which brings its own set of challenges. We are exploring how to bring Shopify hardware to Canada.
