Step 2. Activate the POS

To activate the POS, you choose a “Salesperson Code” between 1 and 9.

Step 3. Inventory level before a sale

Now you can perform a sale, see how the sale affects the inventory level, and check how the sales order shows up in the ERP system.

To check the inventory level, click on the “Search”-button, then “Search (All items)”, which lists all the products on sale.

As an example, type in: Festina Stainless Steel Chrono Watch Steel/Black.

Press the green button “Go to payment”.

If the customer pays by cash, you press the button “Cash Payment”.

Now you type in the amount of cash that the customer pays.
Press “OK”.

The sale is now completed, and the POS is ready for a new sale.
