Cashier Step-by-Step Walkthrough



Start the Shift / Day

  1. Cashiers can sign in to EMDECS by loading https://www.emdecs.com/kona/ and sign in with their BrightOrder supplied username and password.



2.  Click on the Cashier Shift option in the top menu.



3.  Click Start Shift .



4.  From the drop-down lists, select the appropriate cash drawer, shift, then enter the starting amount (i.e. cash drawer float) and then click Start .



5.  If the retail day has not yet begun, a window will pop-up with a warning.  Click Yes to start the retail day.



Alternatively, a cashier manager can start the retail day by opening Financials -> POS Manager and clicking on the Start Day button. If the day has already been started, cashiers can start their shift without being prompted to start the retail day.

Receipts to Apply (tender pop-up window)

Throughout the shift, each time a cashier invoices a counter sale or a repair order, a Receipts to Apply window will pop-up to record the tender type and amount.

Up to three different tenders can be entered for each payment (i.e. a customer pays partially by cash and partially by credit or check), as pictured in the example below.



On the main Cashier Shift screen, each tender receipt and payout is recorded under the Cash Drawer Transactions tab.

Receipts/payments from customers are listed in the Tender Receipts section at the top, while payouts (i.e. cash float at the start of the shift or money withdrawn by a manager for a bank deposit) are listed in the Cash Payouts section at the bottom.



Manually Open the Cash Drawer

To open the cash drawer manually, click Open Cash Drawer .


End Shift

At the end of your day or shift, click on the Close Shift button.



Count the cash in the drawer and enter the amount in the Cash Count field.  The Deposit Amount is the amount taken from the cash drawer to be deposited by a manager.  Click Close Shift to complete your shift.


Security Warning

Note:  When using the cash drawer on a PC for the first time, a Security Warning may pop-up, pictured below.  If you receive this warning while using the cash drawer system in EMDECS, put a check next to "I accept the risk and want to run the application" then click Run to proceed.
