Understand what a Register is and how to use it. Learn how to open a Register to start making sales and inventorying products.
A Cash Register is a machine used for recording 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 your inventory, sales information, customer details, employee shift and commissions and more.
Important: In order to get accurate business reports, make sure to close your cash register at the end of the day.
In order to open or close the Cash Register, first access the "Register" menu on the left sidebar of your Nextar POS Software.
Click on "Open Register" 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.
