You can then join the stock take on your POS device, this will allow you to scan each product in. The products will need to be setup in Shopify with the right barcode, so you can scan them in.

On your POS device, open the Pimsical Stock Take app, click on the stock take you would like to join. You will either be taken directly to the scanner or have the option to Join stock take, depending on how the stock take was set up.

If you have a larger team, you can also join the stock take on multiple devices, so you can have multiple people counting at the same time.

Once you've finished counting, you can then end and action the stock take. You can choose the add stock action, this will then increase your inventory levels in Shopify by the amount scanned in.
