Point of Sale (POS) Glossary
The opening amount in a point of sale register is the amount of money in a cash drawer to start the day, shift, or another employee taking over a register position. Cash drawers are usually equipped to make change by putting a variety of different denominations in the drawer. This opening amount is entered into a point of sale system, which keeps track of the transactions until the register is balanced when the POS terminal is closed out.
Usually, only one employee is responsible for a register. Balancing the register makes the employee who ran the register accountable for the cash. If there is money missing, management must determine if it was due to a mistake or theft and then act per the store’s policies and procedures.
Customers love promotions! Buyers are often pulled in by one deal and wind up buying regularly priced merchandise in addition to, or sometimes instead of your discounted items.
