Step 1. Go to the checkout tab

Select Checkout from the menu on the left.



Step 2. Put the product into cart

*Note: The product price will be displayed in the following order. When a price for the previous rank is not set, the next-ranked price will be displayed, and so on.

  2. Scan the product barcode, and the product will appear in the cart on the right.

    *Note: If the barcode is a member barcode or other non-product barcode, a prompt reminder will pop up showing "The barcode does not correspond to the product". (This feature currently only supports Android users using v1.16.0 or above.)

4. Selecting payment option(s) for checkout

A. General payment options

After checking the order information is correct, tap the green button at the bottom of the cart to begin the payment process. 



You will then see the following fields on the right-hand side:

  • Tax ID No.: Tap Input Tax ID to enter if needed. 
  • Payment: Choose between cash, credit card, or any custom payment types you have previously added. Customers can pay using up to 5 different payment types.



Operation steps for selecting one or multiple payment options:

1. If the customer uses one payment method, after selecting the payment method, the amount payable will appear next to the selected payment option. Tap the amount field (shown in the red box) to enter the actual amount paid by the customer, and tap the green "Checkout" button below to complete the checkout process.

For example, if the customer pays a $500 bill, the staff can enter "500" next to "Cash." The changed amount of $75 will appear at the bottom. 




2. If the customer wants to pay in more than two ways, the staff can tap the first payment method and then tap the Add Payment button to add the rest of the payment options.
