POS mode

Navigation:  Working with cash register > Application settings > Display settings > General >

The selected PoS mode determines how the sales screen behaves. You therefore use this setting to select how you add items to your order.



Catalog - Tap to select individual products (product cards) that you have previously created.

Simplified - Tap first to select a category and then products from that category. The selected category can be locked to be displayed as the default when you close your account and return to the main screen.

Instant sale - Instant quick sale using the numeric keypad, where you just enter the number and price or PLU/EAN code of the item on the calculator.



If you have selected Store as the type of operation when activating the cash register, the Instant sale mode will be set by default, if you have selected another type of operation (e.g. Restaurant), the Catalog mode will be set by default. The POS Mode setting allows you to change this setting regardless of the type of operation you set when activating the cash register.
