Is now the time to change your Lightspeed POS system to another solution?

We’ve spoken with plenty of store owners using Lightspeed who have asked themselves the same question.

  • Broken inventory management that doesn’t sync across storefronts
  • Highly-technical customizations that require in-house IT support
  • Added fees whenever you open a new location

These common frustrations with Lightspeed make it hard for businesses to grow sustainably and provide the seamless experience the customers expect.

If Lightspeed is falling short and you’re looking for alternatives, we’re here to help.

You won’t find any ill-designed and long feature tables here. Instead, we’re sharing the real reasons store owners have told us why they switched to Magestore POS, and how it’s dramatic change improvements to their business.

Why customers want to switch to Magestore

after using Lightspeed POS for their Magento site

Here are three common problems Lightspeed ex-customers faced before they came to Magestore.

Synchronize All Data Across Channels

“I couldn’t take advantage of Lightspeed’s features because of their weak connection to Magento.”

  • Lightspeed POS
    We don’t deny that Lightspeed provides so many features for retailers. But their non-native-to-Magento system causes a huge problem in data synchronization between online and offline, especially inventory information and loyalty program. Most Magestore customers mentioned this issue when they look for another solution.
  • Magestore POS
    Magestore POS solution is native to Magento and ensures real-time data sync between the online website and physical store. We make it super easy for retailers to manage multiple sales channels and get a single, unified view into how your business is doing.

“Lightspeed couldn’t customize some unique features for my specific industry.”

  • Lightspeed POS
    Lightspeed has limited third-party compatibility and typically requires coding experience to make any robust changes to functionality. For most retailers, learning the system from scratch and customizing the feature on their own are too dangerous, too costly and time-consuming. It can even lead to a clumsy customer experience as the system becomes overloaded with features.
  • Magestore POS
    Unlike Lightspeed, Magestore has a dedicated business analysis and development team to work on your unique requirement. We will design a perfect solution that matches your business processes, then the team will start coding the feature at a very competitive hourly rate.

“I couldn’t save money when expanding business because Lightspeed charges fee whenever opening a new store.”

  • Lightspeed POS
    Not only Lightspeed charges you whenever your business opens new locations, but when you pay for a subscription from Lightspeed, it doesn’t mean you own their POS. You just “hire” them for a period of time, and when you want to switch to a new system and cancel their plan, you must “pack” your stuff and migrate all data of your business to the new system.
  • Magestore POS
    Unlike Lightspeed, all Magestore POS pricing plans come with unlimited users and unlimited devices. Just pay one time, you can own our POS forever, expand as many stores as you want, and get your entire team using the software without spending more per user like Lightspeed.

What customers say when switching from

non-Magento system to Magestore POS

If you like the Magento platform, this is the POS for you. Having one database that steams down on PWA to all tills is genius, most companies have it backward. Incredibly fast and super easy to understand and can customize any function you desire.

Greg Penno, Owner of Mr. Pet’sPet Shop | Canada

Magestore's gone above and beyond time and time again, to ensure that their product is dependable, reliable, and cutting-edge. They have always been true to their word, very responsive, and caring. It feels more like a partnership.

Matthieu, Owner of Upper LimitsE-cigarettes | United States

We considered many providers, but in the end, we chose Magestore because Magestore has more advantages. We saved a lot of hours using the new POS system because it’s very fast and it feels safe.

Marco Baratella, COO of Swiss Shooting GroupSporting and Outdoor | Switzerland

From the start of the project they were highly professional, nothing was any major issue. Had some additional custom work done for our business, this was also done very slick and professional from start to finish. 100% highly recommended.

Nick Hunter, Director of McVapeUKE-cigarettes | United Kingdom

It’s brilliant to see that it’s possible to have what we want without breaking our finances. Magestore knows how to deliver things that we have in mind and we’re impressed with the quality and time that we receive. The Magestore team is very competent in what they do.

Matheus Santos, Owner of Top ShoesFootwear | Colombia

We decided to go with Magestore because we wanted a system that would integrate with Magento, where we would have the sales in one spot rather than two systems. Magestore POS would help to start with and then grow into what we need.
