Register: Concept and Handling

Understand the Register concept and learn how to open it so that you can start making sales or adding products to inventory.

What is a Cash Register:

A Cash Register is a machine used for controlling transactions with customers. Also known as Till, it indicates the amount of each sale, records the money received and prints receipts. Nextar POS has a virtual Cash Register that does all that and more. Keep track of hundreds of additional records, such as inventory control, sales details, customer information, commissions, employee shifts and much more.

Important: In order to get accurate business reports, make sure to close your cash register at the end of the day.

How to Handle:

In order to open or close the Cash Register, first access the "Register" menu on the left sidebar of your Nextar POS Software.

Click the "Open Register" button at the top of the Register menu screen.

A window will pop up asking you to enter the Register's opening balance (for cash overages/shortages). The opening amount has to be equal to or greater than zero. After entering the opening balance, click Open register.

Done. You are all set!

Your Register is now open and your store is ready to start making sales and adding products to inventory.
