Once Point of Sale has been activated for your site, you will see a Products tab in the main navigation of your management. Your first step after clicking that tab is to click Product Categories. Once that page loads, click Add New Product Category at the top.
Here you can add your category by filling in the name, leaving the status set to active, and choosing a color for that category. After clicking Submit, you can repeat this step for each category you need.
When you're done, you'll be presented with a list to review. Click Edit next to any you'd like to change. If it looks good, you can move on to products by clicking the Products link under the Products tab in your navigation. Once that page loads, you are presented with 4 tabs across the top for entering Standard Products, Tickets, Adjustments, and Combo Packages.
- Add Button
To enter a Standard Product:
Enter a product name, Order Number, price and description as applicable.
If your item will have the same price at all times, leave Prompt for Price set to No. If the price will change, set this to Yes and upon checkout, you'll be prompted to enter the price.
Add-on Product allows activities to suggest/require purchase of this product during checkout, and it requires a set price. Choose the category (you may add a new one here if it was not set when initially creating them), and if it is taxable or not. Here is also is where you can deactivate a product that's no longer in use(status).
Add your description and any receipt notes for this item if applicable.
You will then choose if this item is a Standard Product, Gift Certificate, or Fund Account type of item.
If you choose to Add Additional Options setting for variations on the product like color and size, you will be able to see these purchases in a point of sale options report we will discuss in the reports section. Using this will also add an extra step on checkout for each type of option so the answers can be selected.
Adding a product to the default list means that you will not have to select a category to view this product for checkout, but it will instead appear in the initial list that comes up in your point of sale screen.
Using Product Inventory allows you to set a limit to how many of this product you can sell. This number is tracked on the product overview screen. If you attempt to exceed the maximum inventory in a sale, the system will not allow you to proceed.
Allow Check In/Out of Item allows products to checked out of inventory when purchased and can be checked back into inventory via the Product Check In report in POS reports or the facility portal. (Inventory use is required for this setting.) This can be useful for items like skis, balls, kayaks, etc. If a product is checked out one at a time, like a locker, create a product for each one.
If the product is only at specific locations, you can choose that radio dial which will allow purchases of this package only from specific locations within the facility portal.
Generate Barcodes creates barcodes that can be printed or emailed after purchase. Barcodes allow the purchaser to scan into a facility for access to it like a membership card. These are not used for purchase or redemption.
You can also select a photo for the product, and must choose a budget group.
Once you're all set filling in the information for your product, click Submit. You can repeat this for each product you need to add. Upon completion, you'll be presented with a screen that displays each product, its basic information, and inventory counts if applicable. Review these products and click the name of any product you'd like to edit or click edit next to an inventory number to adjust that amount.
By clicking on the product name you will find the options to edit, delete, and clone the product. If you choose to edit the product, you'll note the edit screen is much like the add screen with the same abilities.
If you choose the delete option instead, you should note that deleting a product is permanent.
You can also elect to clone a product which will create an exact duplicate except any inventory involved will not be carried over.
Additionally, you have the ability to review and add new product options and review or modify any options currently in place.
Tickets are much like standard products that use an inventory system except a specified number is assigned to each sale. Add New Ticket on the upper right and you'll see many of the same options we just went through for a standard product.
The main difference here is that a ticket includes the option to Allow Duplicate Tickets across sections and a set of fields for various sections. A section can be either a type of ticket like Child, Adult, etc. or a physical area like Section A at a concert. You have the option to allow Section A and Section B to either be numbered sequentially (for example, A can be 1-100 and B can be 101-200) or concurrently (for example, both A and B are numbered 1-100). If you elect to allow duplicate tickets, you cannot change this once tickets have been sold.
Enter in section names (only one is necessary), price, and the minimum and maximum ticket number in the range you intend to sell. Submit your entry and repeat as needed.
- Choose if it will be for either a resident, non-resident or both.
- Change the display name of the adjustment as it appears for the public.
- Enter either the dollar amount (off the base fee), or if you choose percentage, can choose between base fee or adjusted fee.
- You then will choose which membership this adjustment is for, which type and which length.
- Submit and repeat for other memberships, types, or lengths.
