Logging In and General Layout
Our Point of Sale system features a powerfully simple layout, and it takes only a few minutes to learn the basics. Here is a quick overview of how the main sections are set up.
On the screen image below you will see that our POS is divided into two main sections: the receipt window on the left, where entered items are listed and allow for editing and deleting, and the tabs section on the right, which itself is sectioned into tabs similar to a web browser.
These tabs handle the four general categories of activities you will be doing while taking customers orders and payments, and are labelled Menu, Check, Payments and Shift.

The Android Device Menu Bar:
When using AccuPOS on an Android tablet or phone, you will see a row of icons either above or below the AccuPOS program, or in some cases the buttons may be part of the device itself.
The actual look of the icons usually differ from device to device, but they always signify the same functions: Back, Home, Search and Menu
The Android’s Menu button (usually marked by 3 parallel lines) has a direct use with AccuPOS. Pressing this button will bring up a small menu used for setting up the device as well as a few other features. The Back button also works for some functions.
