Loading a certificate into cash register

If you have an EET certificate from the Financial Administration, follow the steps below to set up EET mode in your cash register. There are two ways to load the certificate in your touch cash register:

Via Dotypos Cloud from any computer (recommended)

By loading it directly to the cash register using the connected flash disk or an email message.



Load the certificate into the cash register only as instructed below. Android may otherwise require a PIN to be entered to protect the certificate and if you forget the PIN, the cash register will be blocked! Then technical support will have to unblock it.

Prior to loading the certificate, please check that the cash register is connected to the Internet.


How do I load the certificate in the cash register?

Loading the certificate via Dotypos Cloud

There is a wizard available to set up the EET in Dotypos Cloud that will guide you through the settings step by step. The recommended and the most simple sequence is to load the certificate using Dotypos Cloud.


Log into Dotypos Cloud at the address https://admin.dotykacka.cz/login. You will get the credentials after activating Dotypos. Once you have logged in, click on the cloud icon 01 in the top right corner and from the left menu select etržby 02. The EET settings wizard will appear.




In the heading click on the button + Add.




From the pull-down menu select the cash register for EET mode settings and continue with Next.




Enter information about your establishment. Sale location identification and the correct TAX IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (TAX ID) can be obtained after you have logged in your company at the Financial Administration portal www.daneelektronicky.cz. So we recommend to enter the information you will see after signing in at that page. After adding the information, continue by clicking on Next. The system will notify you of any item you forgot to fill in.




Now use the button Browse... select the certificate you have downloaded from the website www.daneelektronicky.cz. Certificate has to be in the format .p12, e.g. 1234567890.p12. You must also fill out the Certificate Password which you received either in the written authentication data (if you visited the Financial Administration in person) or from the on-line application at www.daneelektronicky.cz. Use the button Complete to complete the wizard.



After finishing the wizard you will see just the downloaded certificate in the bottom part of this page together with information about applicable cash registers. You will also see additional information, e.g. TAX IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (TAX ID), Sale location identification and Date when the EET settings were created.



You can add more certificates with EET settings by running the wizard again using the button + Add.



Once the wizard has finished it will automatically activate the EET mode in the cash register.


Loading the certificate directly in the cash register

You can set up EET directly in the cash register, however you have to save the file with the certificate in the cash register, e.g. in a USB key. If you run the certificate accidentally and forget the set password, the cash register may become blocked. So we recommend to use the previous option and set the EET mode via Dotypos Cloud.



In the Side menu , select theSet EET.




It will run the wizard to help you fill out the basic information necessary to use the cash register in EET mode and to load the certificate.

In the first step, fill out the VAT ID and EET branch ID. You will get this information after signing in at the Financial Administration portal www.daneelektronicky.cz. After adding the information, click on the button Next.




In the next step, click on PICK A CERTIFICATE FILE.




Choose the certificate from the location where you have saved it. You can copy the certificate to the cash register from the connected flash disk. If you have an active email account in the cash register, you can simply have the certificate sent to the cash register as an email attachment.



Just save the certificate from the email or flash disk, do not run it (do not click on it). If you run the certificate, the import certificate system wizard will launch and require your own PIN or another security component to be entered. If you forget the PIN or the gesture thereafter, the cash register will be blocked!







After choosing the certificate, enter its password and confirm it by clicking on OK.




By clicking on the icon Finish setup you close the wizard. Continue by enabling the EET mode in Dotypos.




After completing the wizard you have to activate the EET mode in the cash register. From this moment on the cash register will fiscalize (record with the Financial Administration) the receipts.
