You are able to enable the POS module from here. Click Advanced to see a few additional options.
Don't require the register to close daily - Enabling this will cause the system to not trigger to open or close the register.

Head to Admin, Cash Registers to setup registers. These can be assigned a location, a receipt printer, or a Vantiv credit card terminal.
If your shop wants to use cash registers (the physical drawers/etc) using this feature might help you keep your drawer counts and related.
Just create a Register, give it a name. Now when you do a financial transaction the system will ask you which register you are using. The register will be remembered per workstation for ease of use.
At the end of the day, just "close" the register - performing a drawer count, and you'll get a nice end of day report!
More to come!
