Cash register replacement

Replacing a device means that data from one cash register will be transferred to the new one. After the data transfer, the original cash register will be inactive. Thanks to the simplicity of replacing a device, you can easily and quickly put into operation the new cash register, or a spare during a breakdown or when claiming against the original equipment. Putting a replacement device correctly into operation requires a stable internet connection. Data are loaded into the new cash register from Dotypos Cloud.

The procedure in this chapter continues from preceding chapter, where you activate the cash register as an existing customer.



If possible, perform the cash register replacement outside of the service hours and with a sufficient time in advance before the operation starts. The cash register replacement can take several hours depending on the data volume. So it is useful to replace the cash register e.g. in the evening and let it run through the night to transfer all of the data.

The cash register can work unusually until the data transfer is finished, and there can be also application crashes due to incomplete data.

Before replacing the cash register ,we recommend you save the stocktake with the actual amounts in stock (Copy warehouse status). So the data transfer into the new cash register will be much faster.


How to replace an existing device


Select the option REPLACE DEVICE and then select the cash register to be replaced by clicking on the corresponding button next to the selected cash register.

Be careful not to choose to replace an active (still used) cash register. The cash register application will be deactivated in this cash register after the data transfer, i.e. the cash register will no longer be usable. When replacing the cash register, the license is also transferred to the new device!



In the next step you will be notified that the cash register application Dotypos will not be usable in the original cash register because both data and the license code will have been transferred to the new cash register. To confirm, click on I understand. Finally, select how you want to transfer old documents and click on the button REPLACE DEVICE. The number of transferred documents determines the time needed for the complete synchronization.




Once you click on the button REPLACE DEVICE, all the data from the original device will be automatically transferred. It may take several hours, depending on the amount of data. However you have to again set up these parameters:

1.Initial numbering of documents

2.Print settings

3.Table map

4.ERS certificate



If you need to create a new cash register without uploading existing data, please contact technical support. If you want to transfer the data directly into the cash register including print settings, the numbering of documents and the table map, contact technical support as well.


1.Initial numbering of documents in Application settings - Cash register settings - Initial numbering of documents from.


Here, enter the number of the last document (if not written down) found in Dotypos Cloud in Sales reports - Documents issued. Doing this ensures in the future no duplicate number will be assigned to any document.



2.Print settings i.e. you will have to reset the printer for receipts, orders, add printing tasks and define the headers and footers and other options you have used for printing.

3.You also have to recreate the table map.

4.Upload the ERS certificate
