Assign Connected Cash Drawer to Staff Members

  • Updated

In enforePOS, you can assign a "connected cash drawer" to your staff members. A connected cash drawer is a cash drawer that is physically connected to an enfore device. If several cash drawers are connected, the sales staff member can select the cash drawer assigned to him by his supervisor. This ensures that the correct cash drawer always opens during transactions and that the revenue is always in the correct cash drawer. In this How-To, you will learn which settings you have to make and how the process works.

  • You have connected the other cash drawer to your enfore device via a receipt printer or an enforeCube
