“The Maker community is about people experimenting with art and technology, working towards making our lives more fulfilling and easier,” says Maker’s PR & Marketing Director, Bridgette Vanderlaan. “ShopKeep POS’ elegant design and approach to helping their merchants succeed with their point of sale solutions reflects our shared values and goals, so choosing them as our POS was a no brainer.”

The iPad registers now powering thousands of stores nationwide, were designed by merchants for merchants. The CEO and Founder being one of them, considers ShopKeep POS “so easy to use that pop-ups and events like Maker Faire do not have to worry about training temporary staff or setting up inventory quickly, which makes it a convenient all-in-one solution.”

ShopKeep founder is excited to be a part of the Maker event, adding that “being able to provide the point of sale solution for one of the largest communities of makers, inventors and creatives is a testament that ShopKeep POS is an innovator in its own right.”

Now offering mobile payment via PayPal and soon Dwolla and LevelUp, ShopKeep POS continues to integrate features that make it easier for merchants to accept payments and save money on processing fees. The newly released Dashboard App gives real-time access to sales and inventory levels, making it easier for store owners to make smarter business decisions while on the go. The seven-days-a-week customer service is always there to help if any problems arise with the iPad POS.

Maker Faire New York City is a two-day, family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement taking place on September 29th & 30th at the New York Hall of Science.
