Today Shopbox and Star Micronics EMEA are announcing a collaborative partnership to provide top-notch shop hardware for thousands of shops using Shopbox.

We are excited to partner with the experts at Stars, whose breadth and depth of technical expertise, particularly in POS printing solutions, are unmatched. As a goal-oriented and passionate company in mobile point of sale software, we have the unique opportunity to collaborate with Star to enable efficient and fast payment process in order to improve our customers administration experience. This close collaboration represents an important part of the puzzle in our promise to our customers: We will make their business life easier and less time-consuming.

— Anders Kjørup, Chief Commercial Officer at Shopbox

The partnership will provide Shopbox point of sale and reporting software with Star’s TSP654IIBI Bluetooth receipt printer.

Shopbox will also start offering an ‘all-in-one’ hardware kit, which includes everything that a shop will need, just for 6.995 DKK (999 EUR).

Lauras Bakery in Torvehallerne, Copenhagen are one of the first customers to use Shopbox mobile point of sale software, integrated with Star’s receipt printer. Their experience so far has fully lived up to their expectations:

I love the Shopbox app because among other things it helped me reduce food waste! I also like the fact that it makes it very easy for me to add and remove seasonal products such as Gingerbread cookies, which is usually very complicated with other POS systems!

— Helle, daily manager at Lauras Bakery

This follows a key strategy for Shopbox: offer everything that a shop needs. Shopbox  will integrate and partner with services and hardware that are quality focused. We won’t lock our clients into a limited set of available features or sub-par integration options. Our awesome partners are part of that game-changing approach.
