DTill – Record Sales And Refunds

The DTill module provides a complete package to allow users to manage your retail business.

Each DTill Transaction is made up of a series of line items – the transaction is complete once all the line items have been input and payment has been validated and accepted. Users can input line items to the system automatically, using barcode scanners, or manually, by selecting product codes. The system will allow customers to pay by Cash, Cheque, Credit Card or a mix of these payment types.

Cash sales are recorded in the sales ledger as paid invoices and are posted as for sales invoices created through Daybooks or via the SOP module.

The following list of possible preparation steps will help you decide if you need to do anything before processing and if you need help.
