Setting up for the Day


This guide is aimed at providing detail on the features required most commonly used to set up EPOS on a daily basis

Cash Register

It is important to know exactly how much money has passed through the till in a day. This is enabled through use of the Start and End of Day funcionality which is accessed through Buttons -> Cash Reg

The Cash Register (Buttons -> Cash Reg) provides access to setting up/closing down the till along with how much money is currently in the till

Cash In

During the day, the till might run out of the necessary coins needed to hand out change, so the user will need to put more money in the till so they can give change correctly. This can be logged into the system so the Cash Reg option can record it. This is done using the Cash in Button.
