Cash Register Layouts

  • Updated

In this How-To, we will introduce you to the different cash register layouts.

If you want to specify exactly where each sales item should appear in the cash register view, we recommend using a manual cash register layout. For example, you can position your bestsellers at the top of the cash register view and the deposit at the bottom right.

If you want to centrally manage inventory for multiple stores, we recommend a dynamic cash register layout that automatically adjusts when, for example, new sales items are added or if a sales item is temporarily unavailable.

Note that in a manual cash register layout, changes that affect the sales items must always be made manually.
