Tuesday Tip: Cashier Errors and Tender Types

Want to help prevent cashier errors that happen when the wrong tender type is selected? Make sure that your point of sale system is set to only display the tender types that you accept. Microsoft RMS Store Operations users can find the settings under “database” and then “tender types” within RMS Manager:

QuickBooks Point of Sale Pro users can look under “Company Preferences” under the “File” menu:

If you have NCR CounterPoint, from the manager screen go to “Setup”, then “POS”, then “Stores”, then “Pay Codes” (may vary from system to system):


This is a simple setting that can help prevent a cashier from selecting an incorrect tender type which can create confusion and miss-rung sales.
