POS Currency Rates

This function allows head office to override the exchange rate at location or location group level. The exchange rates apply to the Point of Sale (POS) only and its related reports (Tender Report and Sales Export).

Note: Accounting rate can only configured in the Currency Rates and is not available in POS Currency Rate maintenance.
