POS (Point of Sale) System
The POS in our software allows you to make super fast transactions where you don't need to setup a customer or a ticket. You can just scan barcodes and swipe their credit card to take payment—very quick and easy.
What it Does
- Allows quick transactions in a touch screen friendly manner
- Barcode scanning support for super fast transactions
- Category drill buttons to make it simple to drill down into a category from a touch screen
- Optional - "Registers" can be defined to track cash drawers, open the drawer, run z-reports, etc

Head to More > Admin > POS - Cash Registers to setup registers. These can be assigned a location, a receipt printer, or a WorldPay 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!
