The idea of cash drawers is a retail best practice going back decades, which allows you to keep close tabs on how much cash has gone in or out of your store. ConsignCloud's Tills feature aims to replicate this idea, as well as allow you to track the location of every sale and payout, regardless of payment type.
Together with Shelves (which specify the location of an item), this makes it possible to run multiple locations with a single account.
Create the Till
Get started by creating a till under Menu > Settings > Tills, if you don't already have one. It is convention to create one till for every register so you can track sale location.
Note: if you don't want to use this feature, you can delete all your tills and proceed as normal.
Open the Till
To open your till, navigate to the + Sale in the top navigation bar and you will be prompted to open your new till with a starting cash balance.
Proceed with your daily sales, and if you want a quick snapshot of how your till looks, select the three vertical dots in the top right-hand corner at the POS and hit "Till Report".
Settle the Till
Once you are ready to close your till out for the day, click on the three vertical dots at the top-right of the POS and select "Till Report". You will see a summary of the till for that day and at the bottom you will see a button to "Close Till". You will be prompted to enter in a closing cash balance before finalizing.
Now you should see your report summary, giving you insights into the day's transactions.
Reconcile the Till
To see more details, visit Menu > Settings > Tills and click on the till name. This will take you to the detail page, showing all the generated reports for that till.
You can open a report up by clicking on the view icon in the reports list. This will show you the expected and ending cash, as well as differences in your cash balance.
If you need more information, see the breakdown of events beneath the report summary.
