Products

  • Products are configured in the web portal, Basic Setup, Products.
  • To add a product select the Add button and it will bring you to the Product Details page.
  • To view active or inactive products select the View Active/Inactive button.
  • To make changes to an existing product select the Edit button.
  • The Export button allows you to export the list of products in CSV format for a spreadsheet.

Product Details

  • You cannot delete a product but you can deselect the Active checkbox to deactivate it.
  • The mandatory fields for a product are the Product Code, Product Name, Buy price (may be left set to zero), Sell Price, Category and Tax Type.
  • The Product Code allows you to look up items by code or use a barcode scanner. If you are using a barcode scanner you will want to use the barcode number labeled on the product. If you do not use a barcode scanner or other preset code then the system will generate a code for you.
  • To print the product code on receipts set the parameter Print Item Codes to On in the Receipt Printers section of Basic Setup, Devices, Device Settings.
  • Product Name is printed on customer receipts. It is also used when you search for products by name.
  • Buy Price may be left at zero but if set it will provide insight into your average profit. The Buy Price will also display a warning if you sell an item below cost.
  • The Sell Price is what the customer will pay for the item.
  • Category is the field that you use to link a product to a specific category for reporting.
  • Tax Type is used to set the tax category for the item you are selling.
  • Attribute is optional. It is used for products with serial numbers or products that need to be weighed. The Serial Number option will prompt for a serial number when the product is added to an order. The Weight Scale options will prompt for a weight when the product is added to an order and the Sell Price, measured weight and selected unit weight will be used to calculate the item price.
  • Display Order allows you to optionally override the alphabetical order. We recommend that you use increments of ten (10, 20, 30...).
  • The Modifiers section is typically used by restaraunts when a product has selectable modifiers or add-ons. This section is only visible if you have created modifier groups.
  • The Suppliers section is typically used by retail businesses. This section is only visible if you have created suppliers.
