Closing the Till
This article will guide you on how to close cashout or what is also known as daily settlement
When the cashout is closed you will see the OPEN cashout icon on the dashboard.
From the main screen, go to Sell > Cashout.
Once the Close Cashout screen opens, it will divided into 2 different steps: Cash Count and Payment Breakdown.
Under this step you will have the ability to edit the closing date and time, as it will be defaulting to the time and date that we clicked on the Close Cashout option. The system will also be showing the opening float amount as well as 2 different Calculation Methods: TOTAL and DETAILS. The 2 different methods are used for the Cash Tender Type.
TOTAL: This option will give you the ability to put the amount of money in bulk for the next float as well as the remaining cash, the system will add the "Total Next Float" amount and the "Total Remaining Cash" on the most right column. Once we are ready to proceed we can click on the "Next" button located at the top right corner.
DETAILS: This option will give you the ability to put the amount of money with details, on the most left side column, you will be presented with the tender amounts for cash that have been set up for your zone. On the column next to it (right side), you will see the "Next Float", this is the amount that will be left to the next time the Cashout is open (when starting sales again). To the right of that column you will find the "Remaining Cash" option, this is what is being taken out of the till. You will see that the Next Float amounts and Remaining Cash amount are being added under the "Actual Cash" column (most right column). Once we are ready to proceed we can click on the "Next" button located at the top right corner.
Under this step you will have the ability to enter any other totals for any tender types other than cash, for most credit/debit transactions the Actual amount should be the same as the System's amount, however depending on your payment processor you will have the ability to check the amount from your credit/debit machine when closing for the day. The system will give you a total on the most right hand side column on whether the amount are over or under from what the system has.
You also have the options to Print End-of-Day Report as well as Print Shift Open/Close. Once you are ready to finalize it, you can click on the "CLOSE " button located at the bottom right corner. The button will only be clickable once you have entered the required amounts for other tenders types.
Once you click the "CLOSE" button then system will display 2 "Service Messages" to let you know that the cashout has been closed.
