Instant sale

Usually, items are added to the order in Dotypos by clicking on an already created product. In Dotypos you can also add items to the order simply by entering their amounts and values in a simple calculator. We call this function instant sale.

The basic Instant sale options are also shown in this video.

 

How does instant sale work?

The availability of Instant sale depends on the establishment type selected during the cash register activation and on the settings of the POS mode in POS settings.

If, during the cash register activation, you selected the establishment type Shop, the calculator will be automatically visible and ready to be used on the main screen.

If, during the cash register activation, you selected another establishment type and you want to use the calculator, in the POS settings - POS mode select Instant sale.

Once Instant sale is activated, on the Dotypos main screen you will see the calculator for Instant sale instead of the products overview:

It is useful to set the VAT rate first by clicking on the appropriate tile 01. The displayed values correspond to the ones filled out in Tax settings. Dotypos remembers the selected VAT rate until another one is selected.

If you use Instant sale for a category with a preset VAT rate, this rate will be applied automatically.

Now use the numerical key pad 02 to enter the sold items. There are several ways to enter them:

The easiest way is to enter the quantity and price. For example, if you want to sell five rolls at CZK 2 per roll, you enter 5 X 2 and PRICE 04. This way, on the left-hand side of the window it will add to the order the item Sale 07 (that is the initial name for all items; however, this may be changed – see below).

If you have set the PLU code for any product, it can be used here as well. Let us say, for example, that the product CC Cola has the PLU code set to value 123. Enter in the calculator 123 and PLU 03 and your account will be extended with one CC Cola. Or you enter the amount and then the PLU code: 5 X 123 PLU. In this case, the order will be credited with five CC Cola drinks. Once you enter the valid PLU code, the found product will be displayed in the upper part of the numeric keyboard 02.

If you are using a bar code reader, enter the quantity, e.g. 5 X and then use the reader to load the code.

You can also enter negative values, if in the POS settings you allowed the option Negative prices, or Negative quantities. To switch between positive and negative values, use the button +/- 08.

When adding items to the order you can combine the items added from the calculator and items selected from the catalog. To switch between the calculator and the catalog, use 05 PICK FROM CATALOG. You can also combine the calculator with the catalog. If you want to sell three servings of schnitzel with potatoes, enter on the calculator 3 X and choose PICK FROM CATALOG - Food - Schnitzel with potatoes. To go back to the calculator mode, click on the arrow or the cross on the left of the notice Items catalog.

The name of the sale item can be changed by the name of the category or by any recently used names. Click on PICK A NAME 09 (see first picture) and choose the name from the available options. If you are editing the name of any item via changing its properties and you use this name, you can select it in the section Last used.

If you use a category for the name, in the Sales overview you can filter the sales by sold items and categories.

When the order is complete, you can draw it by using 06 Checkout. This takes you to the Settlement dialog, where by clicking on the icon Paid you pay the order. Or you can carry out additional operations with the order (you can divide the order, divide the payment, etc.).

How do I change the properties for a recorded item?

Individual items are added to the left section of the window. If you want to change the properties of any recorded product, hold down your finger at length on its name 07  (see first picture). This takes you to the window Charged product properties, where you can change the product properties, e.g. its price and quantity or its name.

You can change the product properties for items entered in the calculator or added by selecting from the catalog, using the PLU code or bar code reader. You can trigger the window to change the product properties by holding at length on the product name, but only at items added on the calculator. The product name can be changed only at these items as well. The properties for the items added from the catalog, using the PLU code or the bar code reader, can be changed by tapping on the pencil icon:

If you do not use the cash register in the mode Shop but you still need the keyboard, try to set up the PLU keyboard. The cash register in the mode Shop works faster, because it does not have to draw product tiles.
