Quick-add item with picture

On our last update, we added the much anticipated quick-add item feature. This gives you the flexibility to add items down to the vendor and category level right from the sale screen with just a few clicks. Now, you can also add an image to it. Use the iPad camera to take a photo of your quick-add item or select an existing image from your gallery, creating a fast and dynamic register experience.

Psst: Worried about auto-adds? Quick-add item can also be used to make on-the-spot inventory adjustments and help avoid stock discrepancies.

Opt-in marketing

When adding new customers in the sales screen, now you can document their explicit consent to receive marketing communications from your shop. This enhancement helps you establish a trusting relationship with your customers by respecting their email, phone and mail preferences, all while improving targeted your marketing efforts.

UI Improvements

Change due screen

Keeping the amount due to customers visible helps staff promptly return the correct change. We’ve made it easier to see exactly what change customers are owed during checkout by increasing the font size and the location of the amount displayed.

Current shop and register   

We received a lot of feedback about not knowing which store or register you’re signed into when signed into the iPad app. We added the shop location and register to the top of the title bar to provide an instant visual cue to users when signed in.
