Adding POS Categories

The categories option allows you to create up to 12 different categories to assign your products and wines to so you can find your products quicker. You want to use the following steps to add categories to your POS application:

1. Go to Store > Products POS Categories. 

2. Click on the green Add A POS Category button.

3. In the POS Category Field, give your category a name (i.e. Red Wines, Merlot, Events, etc).

If you are setting up multiple tasting rooms, remember that Category names should be unique so as not to create confusion when assigning products to the categories. A suggestion for having similar category names for two locations would be to have a abbreviation or short name for the location - then the category name. Example for N - Home for the tasting room in Napa and V - Home for the tasting room in Vancouver. 

4. Check the Is Active box to make the category active.

5. Click Save.

To make the categories appear on your POS you must assign the categories to a POS Profile. Once the categories have been linked to a profile they will appear in a drop down menu at the top of your POS screen.
