Creating, moving and deleting products

Navigation:  Working with cash register > Managing items >

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 arrange individual products into categories. The created products and categories are displayed on the main screen of Dotypos.

You can also manage the products in Dotypos Cloud.

Remember that the sold product should be recorded in pieces if possible (this does not apply to services, etc.). If you sell poured or draft beverages, you can specify the price per packaging and set the packaging volume, e.g. 500ml. This option is described here. However, the customer will find in the receipt the amount of beverage they drank.

 

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

The product card opens. Enter here the product name and select the category to which the product will belong. When entering the name, the corresponding products from the Dotypos web catalog are suggested. When the suggested product is selected, the EAN code is automatically added to its name. The products contained in the Dotypos catalog can also be created just by scanning the bar code. This way the name and EAN code are also added.

Then specify the prices and attributes of the package for sale. You can enter number and packaging unit or the product. You can change the unit by clicking on the item Pieces in the part Packaging and unit – see the figure below.

Price options

On sale

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

Don't apply order sales

If this option is active, this product will never be eligible for any discount off the whole order.

Always ask for price

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

Requires manual quantity entry

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

Calculate Timeable price

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.

Now go up to the end of the page and enter the EAN or PLU codes and save the new product by clicking on the button SAVE AND EDIT 01. On the left you will see items for advanced preferences. The product can be also saved using the button 02, if you do not need to adjust its preferences anymore.

How to create a copy of a product?

The products can be copied including their properties. 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 properties in which the both products differ.

1_icon

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

Now the adjusted copy of the duplicated product will be added to the 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. When you create a new product, adjust this hidden one and show it again.
