Creating, moving and deleting products

Products are the basic elements of working with the cash register. The product can be anything you sell to your customers: an article, food, a service etc.. You can sort individual products into categories. The created products and categories are displayed on the Dotypos main screen.

You can also manage the products in Dotypos Cloud.



Please remember that the product you sell has to ideally be stated in the number of units of that product (not applicable, for example, with services), otherwise the customer’s receipt will have, for instance, the number of liters of beer drunk.


Here you can find guides to create, move or delete products:


How to create a product?


In the touch cash register main screen click on the icon 01 Side menu 02 and select Item management.




On the open page click on + ADD NEW in the top right corner 01 and from the displayed menu select Add product 02. You can also add a new product directly using the button 03.




The product card opens. Enter here the product name and select the category to which the product will belong. Then specify the prices and attributes of the package for sale. You can enter number and packaging unit or the product. Change the unit by clicking on Pieces in Packaging and units (see the next picture).


It is first recommended to select the VAT rate and then enter the price including VAT. Otherwise, the entered price would be recalculated after VAT is selected.




If you click on the arrow icon in Prices, a menu with other options will roll down.



Price options

Promotional discount

If this option is active, you can enter the actual discount off the regular price that will be accepted during a sales event.

Do not apply batch discounts

By activating this option, no discount off the whole order will ever be applied to this product.

Require an entered price

Enabling this option requires the price to be always entered when selling a product.

Require an entered quantity

Enabling this option requires the quantity to be always entered when selling a product. This is recommended for weighed products.

Calculate time based value

When the product is charged based on time, Dotypos will automatically calculate the price based on the time and the set units while the order is parked. This is used, for example, to sell services.



Finally go to the end of the page, enter the EAN and PLU code and save the new product by clicking on SAVE 01 in the top right corner. For more information about codes, have a look at this chapter. The newly created product contains only basic items. If you save and reopen with the SAVE AND EDIT button, 02it will be shown on the left side of the tab for advanced settings.



How to create a copy of a product?

The products can be copied including their preferences. This is useful especially when creating a product that is similar to another already created product. In that case you make a copy of the original product and then just change the preferences in which the both products differ.


In Item management click on the product to be duplicated. In this example we will duplicate the product Roll.




Click on the three vertical dot icon.




The option Create copy will be displayed. Click on it to perform the required changes.




Save the changed product using the option SAVE.



Now the copy of the duplicated product will be added to your list of products.



How to transfer a product?

Products can be sorted similar to categories. Activate the product transfer mode by clicking and holding your finger on the product to be transferred for about two seconds. You may recognize the activation of the sort as the product jumps a few centimeters aside and becomes a darker gray. At this moment you can move the product to the desired position and drop it in place there. When the product is placed in the new position, the initial product cards automatically move.


How to delete a product?

In Item management choose the product to be deleted and in the product tab click on DELETE 01 in the top right corner. Before the product is deleted, you will be asked to confirm this deletion.




Instead of deleting the product, it is recommended that you temporarily hide and deactivate it using the option Show as box.02(see the figure above). When you create a new product, adjust this hidden one and show it again.
