Using the Barcode Scanner
To use the barcode scanner, associate a barcode with a product in the Server’s Product Settings. Then, scan the product from the Administrator interface to add it to the shopping cart.

To add a product or offer to a user account, right-click the computer the user is using, choose Current User, and select Add Product/Offer. Specify the details of the product or offer and press “Add” to add it to the user’s bill. Verify the bill and pay to complete the transaction.
The Graphical Overview
When adding an offer to a user or guest account, there may be additional options to consider depending on the type of offer. For example, some offers may only be valid during certain times, such as a “night gib” offer that is valid on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 1 AM. In these cases, you will need to specify the time that the offer is valid in order to add it to the customer’s bill. To do this, select the appropriate time from the options provided, and then press “Add” to add the offer to the current bill
The User Account Screen
To sell products to a user using the Smartlaunch POS, start by searching for the user’s name in the search field at the top of the Administrator.

Using Drag ‘n Drop to Sell Products
The Drag ‘n Drop menu is a convenient way to sell products to users, as it allows you to quickly and easily add time or products to a user’s session. To use this feature, simply drag the product you want to sell from the menu on the right and drop it onto the user’s computer on the left. This will add the product to the user’s account and update the bill accordingly.
