How Do I Mark Down Random Weight Items?

Random weight items are those items that get weighed on scales at the deli, meat or fruit and vegetable sections, and the scale prints a label for the price. For example, you have cheese priced at $23.99/kg. The customer gets a piece weighing 0.25 kg. The item is worth $6.00. The scale will produce a label with a barcode on it. This is placed on the cheese. When this is scanned at the front-end POS, the cheese will be added to the sale at $6.00.

Sometimes you may need to mark down random weight items. For example, you may have prepackaged meat with random weight barcodes on them and they are about to reach their use by date. Rather than generate new labels (which is not allowed by law in some countries), the manager may put a line through the barcode and write a new price on the item.


Scan the item at the POS. This will add the item with a sale value (and therefore quantity) based on the barcode.


You then do a Change Price to change the item to the new price. Press the Modify button on the right side of the screen.


Press the Chg Price button on the right side of the screen.


A list of suggested prices is displayed down the right side of the screen. If one of these is the required amount, press the button. If no suggested price matches, type in the price (including the decimal place) and press the OK button.

If reasons for doing a price change are set up, they will be displayed. Select a reason.

For example, for a normal item, the entered value will be the unit sell price. So if you had a quantity of two and you change the sell price to $6.99, the value would become $13.98. Random weight items are treated slightly different. The price you entered is assumed to be the overall value. So if you entered $6.99, it would remain $6.99 regardless of the quantity.
