Using the Point-of-sale Register

The point-of-sale (POS) feature allows you to quickly process a transaction at your campground store. POS transactions are not tied to a guest, as they are meant to be a quick way to exchange payment for goods using a digital cash register.

POS Items and Categories

Before you can use the POS Register, you must add POS items. Click POS Items from the menu under the Point of Sale section.

Click New Item to begin adding a new item. Enter all the item details in the dialog that displays, and select Save.

You can add your most used POS items to your favorites list so you can quickly add them in the POS Register. You also have the option to set up POS categories and vendors. Grouping items within categories will give you better ability to find items in the register and pull more detailed reporting. To set up categories and vendors, click POS Item Categories or Vendors from the menu under Settings. Once all POS items have been added, you are ready to use the register.

POS Register

To open the register, select POS Register from the main menu under the Point of Sale section. If you have a barcode scanner plugged into your computer, you can scan the barcode of your product now. If not, enter the UPC using the keyboard, and push enter to add the item to the transaction. Notice your favorited POS items show on the favorites list so you can quickly add them.
