EPOS – Record Sales And Refunds

Overview
The EPOS module provides a complete package to allow users to manage consumer and trade retail businesses.

Each EPOS 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.
