Navigation:  Working with cash register > Managing items >

You can also manage the products in Dotypos Cloud. If you open a previously saved product again in the cash register, the individual product properties will be divided into these items:


Basic info


Enter the product name to be displayed on cash registers


Select the category to which the product will belong.

Display in selection

Disabling this option causes the product not to be displayed on cash registers. It will not display the main screen in the product overview. This is useful, for instance when you need to hide the product temporarily and later sell it again.

Notes and tags


Mark products with text tags. You can enter several tags for one product.

Quick notes (variants)

This field lets you write possible product options (e.g. medium steak). At payment, choose the option and the text will be printed on the receipt.

Short note

A note is used to add product information (e.g. allergens). This note is printed on the receipt.

Long description

Detailed product description e.g. for managers. This description is neither printed on the receipt nor displayed to the crew.

Packaging and units

Packaging and units

Quantity of product in the sold packaging By clicking on the icon Pieces you can change the packaging units. For weighted products, you should set the unit to Kilograms.


Deduct from inventory

Disabling this option causes the product not to be stocked out in the warehouse. You can also choose whether you want to sell goods even if they are not in stock, or just display the notification.

Production item

This option indicates a product manufactured in the establishment. The item marked this way is not an ingredient during sale, just during manufacturing. You can create items easily in the the application Warehouse.

Joint sale

Function used for selling products together with returnables. You will find more information in this chapter.


Allow to sale item as takeaway

Allows takeaway sales for this item. For takeaway sales, you can set up the common default rate or select your own VAT rate. You can find more information about this function in this chapter. The VAT rate for takeaway sales can be also specified by a special tag.



Enter the EAN and PLU codes in these fields. The cash register checks whether the entered code does not contain any product in the cash register. If yes, the line turns red and a notification appears. You can use the displayed buttons to scan the code with the built-in camera in the device.

Sale by proxy

Don't perform fiscalization

When this option is on, the product will not be permanently fiscalized (recorded) under the Act on EET. You can also find the same option in category properties.

Sale this item by proxy

If you want the product to be “fiscalized” (recorded) for another subject than the one entered in the EET settings, check the option Sale by proxy and from the list select the subject that you added in Managing EET subjects in advance. When issuing an order in the settlement dialog you will then see a note that the document for this product will be issued by proxy. You will also see the a figure icon on the product tile, symbolizing sale by proxy.





Per unit / For packaging

Select whether the final product price will be for the set packaging or for pieces sold. Applicable when you need to record the sale item in liters, but the sale packaging is e.g. 0.3l. Just set the packaging and units as 0.3 liters and then select the price per packaging as 15 CZK. So before entering the price you do not have to recalculate the amount to the value 50 CZK corresponding to one liter of the beverage sold.

Price w/o VAT

Product price excluding VAT. This option is not visible if you activated the option I am not a VAT payer. A customer that is not a VAT payer has only one final sales price, no matter the VAT rate.


Select the VAT rate to be charged.

Price inc. VAT

The price including VAT will be automatically calculated from the entered price excluding and including VAT

On Sale

When this option is active, you can enter the current discount off the regular price in this field (in front of the % sign) to be accepted during the promotional event.

Don't apply order sales

When 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. Once the product is added to the order, a dialog window with PRICE and a numeric keyboard will be displayed. This option is useful for the direct sales of goods where you do not want a unique final price to be set.

Requires manual quantity entry (weighted)

Enabling this option requires the quantity to be always entered when selling a product. As soon as the product is added to the order, you will see a dialog window with the item QUANTITY and a numeric keypad. This option is useful for the direct sales of weighted goods (in bakeries, butcher shops and similar shops).

Calculate timetable 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.

Bonus points

Bonus points

Enter the number of points to be added after the product purchase to the customer account.
