You may need to enter a discount percentage to apply the discount code. To do that, press the department button. Next, enter the discount percentage, for example, 10 for 10% off, and then press the % key in the row of buttons to the left of the numeric keypad.
Step 4: Choose a payment method
Retail stores will accept many popular payment methods for customers, such as cash, checks, credit cards, gift cards, and other contactless e-wallet payment methods. To record a customer’s payment method, follow these steps:
Accept a cash transaction
Enter the cash amount the customer gives you and press the CASH or AMT TND button. It’s the widest button on the bottom right part of the cash register keyboard.
Some cash registers will show the odd amount to return to the customer. However, you’ll have to do the math in your head with some older cash register models.
Here, you may wonder how to open a cash register without a key. With some POS systems, after you click the print receipt, your cash drawer will automatically open, and you can place cash in the drawer.
Accept a credit card transaction
