Making a Sale

Making a sale is the most common task you will do in the POS.

Basic Sales


To make a sale, first search for a product. There are three ways to do this:

  • Search for the product in the small search box - search by product name or code, and press enter to add it to the transaction.
  • Search for the product in the large search area - this is found to the right or bottom of the screen depending on your screen size. Pressing enter will search for the product. Click on the product to add it to a transaction.

Next, take a payment for the transaction.

  1. Check the total of the sale.
