» Available only in Dotypos FULL and higher. «


Happy Hours allows a price to be set that is temporarily different from the standard product price. The different price will be valid for a period of time set between two dates or by the day(s) of week and time. If you need to set a different price for just the duration date, use the easier function Time-based prices.

Example of how to use Happy Hours:

Let’s say in March you are organizing an event where a specific product is going to be sold at a discounted price every weekend. However, starting in April the product will be sold again at the regular price.


How do I set prices that are temporarily different?


In Remote Control go to the PRICES tab 01 and click the blue button +ADD in the top right corner 02.




In the HAPPY HOURS tab 01 choose the product the price of which you want to temporarily adjust and add it to the right side 02 with the button. Now you can adjust rule preferences (price event).




Enter the Event name, 03from the pop-up menu Cash Register 04 choose the cash register where this event will be active and in section 05 set the event duration. To set the beginning and end dates, set the switches to ON.

In the section 05 also specify the days and the time period when the rule should be followed. The time setting is always in two steps - hours and seconds.

Finally, specify the product price and use Save 07 to save the price event. You can enter the price in part 06 either directly in Czech crowns or use the field Surcharge/discount in % to enter the value of the discount or surcharge in %, e.g. -20. The corresponding Czech koruna price will be automatically calculated.

The product price will be automatically adjusted at the selected cash register for the preset period. When the preset period is over, the product price will automatically return to its original value.



When there is an overlap in rules, the rule with the lowest preset product price is the rule the program will follow.


How do I modify or delete the created rule?

The menu item PRICES shows all of the rules that have been created concerning price changes. You can adjust the selected rule with the EDIT 01 button. Use the button 02 to delete the rule.
