Configuring devices

In order to comply with point of sale legislation you have to bundle your point of sale peripherals into Stations. In essence, a Station is an umbrella term under which you house all the hardware that makes up a point of sale. By defining Stations, even though they are nothing more than an abstract concept, we can comply to the necessary legislation.

Adding a station

Stations are manually set up in Admin 1.0:

  • go to Management Infrastructure

  • in the dropdown menu, select for which store you would like to create a Station
  • after selecting a store, a button saying New Station will appear to the right, click it

  • give your new Station a Name
  • give you station an optional Backend ID
  • Save
Note

The checkbox "This station is a fiscal station and will be used for transactions" cannot be altered after you Save. If you later on decide to make this a fiscal station then please delete, and re-create.

Adding devices to your station

Stations are generally made up of a cash drawer, thermal receipt printer, payment terminal, safe and customer facing display.

When you have created a station, you can select this station in the station dropdown menu on Management Infrastructure under the corresponding organization unit. After having selected you station, you can add devices by clicking New device in the bottom-right corner.

caution

These configurations apply when using Live Guard only, which is very much recommended.

Ignore for counting

When adding a device with type Safe, it is also possible to determine its behavior around counting using the dropdown menu named Should be counted. This dropdown returns three options:

  • Closing only (count on opening, close automatically)
  • Open & Closing (count on opening and closing)
  • Ignore (open and close automatically)
