6. Confirm the cash drawer amount is correct, and then click Yes.

 - If you opened the drawer with an incorrect amount, you need to close the cash drawer, and then reopen it with the correct amount.

8. You can now process POS transactions.


The Details:

You can set up a cash drawer to open automatically

You can set up a cash drawer to automatically open at the beginning of each day with zero dollars. 

 - This is helpful for companies that use separate cash drawers for back office use such as Accounts Receivable and Service.  

 - These drawers generally open with zero cash because the cash and checks are deposited every night. 

 - Do not use this option on cash drawers that actually hold cash - for example, a point of sale register.


You cannot change the processing date

The processing date cannot be changed when opening and closing the cash drawer.  

 - Transactions can be back dated within a session; however, the processing date must be set to the current date in order to open or close the drawer.
