Getting Started

When you are setting a new business with a view to taking cash payments a cash till or cash register is a key consideration.

Cash registers start at the very basic entry level tills – little more than cash boxes with a receipt printer.

Some of the smaller cash register are supplied with mini bases and don’t have the capacity to store all the different coin types. Another basic function of your cash register should be the capacity to print a personalised receipt. You may want a receipt with your company information at the top of the receipt to help reinforce your brand or you may want to issue receipts to assist with processing returns.
