Create a Category
To organize and streamline your products in the Sale Screen, you can create and assign them to specific categories. Whether it’s a parent category or a subcategory, you’ll need to set it up before adding any products. You can easily edit and update existing categories by selecting them, making the necessary changes, and saving. This allows for easy navigation and organization of your products within the POS system.
Create a Product
When adding a new product to your inventory, the system allows you to easily copy over common settings from a previous product, such as its category, printer, and bump screen settings. However, you can also customize these settings to fit the specific needs of the new product. Additionally, a product can be placed in multiple categories, and it can have up to five unique barcodes. Be sure to also pay attention to advanced settings, such as trigger products, product options, and scale settings, to ensure the product is set up correctly.
Close Cash – End of Day Process
The End-of-Day Process is a crucial step in managing your business’s financials. It allows you to close out all transactions for the day, reconcile tills, and generate important reports such as Cash Flow and Sales reports. These reports can be easily emailed to accountants and business owners for further analysis. Carrying out this process at the end of each shift or day is highly recommended for accurate financial tracking and a fresh start for the next shift.
Delete, Disable, OR Reuse Products
You can easily delete a product that you’ve just created if it hasn’t been used for any sales. However, if the product has been used in sales, you can disable it by going to Menu > Stock > Products and selecting “In Catalogue.” This way, you can still use the product in the future, but it won’t show up in the product list. Additionally, you can also re-use disabled products when you bring in new products.
