How Do I Prepare POS Reloads?

Prepared POS Reloads has the benefit of being able to package up Till information on the server, and then have the till reload this packet of information. By preparing your reloads, it lessons the load on the server. In order for this process to work, a POS Data directory in System Settings is required. This is the root directory where the POS data will be stored.


Select the Operations task from the Main Menu.


Start the Prepare POS Data option from the Operations menu. (MERCHANTEOD.EXE PREPAREPOSDATA)


Enter the location or use the button to search for the location required.


Click the Process button.


To load the prepared data, select the Till Control task from the POS Menu.


Select the required till. The lower section of the form shows which till is being controlled. As you click on different tills, this description changes.


Select the Prepared Reload button to request the POS to do a prepared reload.

Press the Yes button to send the command to the selected till or the No button to send the command to all tills in the location.

You are not able to use the POS terminal while the reload is happening. This process takes approx. 5-10 minutes depending on how many items are in that location.


Click the OK button to accept the confirmation message that the command has been sent.


The POS Terminal shows "Backoffice requested prepared reload. Please wait.." message.
