MPOS Tills - Basic

Each MPOS Till can be configured in POS BE. This is done using the standard Tills - Basic configuration screen and selecting MPOS Handheld as the POS Type. Only the settings relevant to MPOS tills are shown. Ensure the MPOS Broker Address field is set in Locations Advanced.

A description about the MPOS till.


The location where the MPOS till is located. This is used by the till to get the set of available items and their pricing.


This is a unique number assigned by the user to identify the till.

POS Type

Indicates the type of POS using this definition. Set to MPOS Handheld for MPOS tills.


This is a standard point of sale where an operator will server customers using a typical touch screen PC.


The POS will be configured to make use of a keyboard for operations. The function buttons will be displayed across the bottom of the screen. Some buttons that appear on the touchscreen POS, like the Search and Payment, and not displayed. However, they can be added to the function keys when you define the keyboard. Note, this option is aimed for retail rather than hospitality. The 4x9 button panel is not used so the fastkeys, modifiers, and so on are not available.


The POS will be run via remote desktop on a handheld Pocket PC/Windows Mobile device with a screen resolution of 320x240. The POS display will not take the full screen to allow for the toolbars displayed as part of older versions of the remote desktop client.

Handheld (Full Screen)

Same as handheld but allows the POS to run full screen as support by newer versions of the remote desktop client.

Self Service

The customer will use this POS on a touchscreen PC. Useful to allow customers to place their own orders.

Merchant Local Server

The till definition is actually for Merchant Local Server, not a real POS. This allows the Merchant Local Server to be controlled via Till Control. When you select this option, many of the remaining tabs will disappear as they are not required.

MPOS Handheld

For use with Mobile POS (MPOS). When selected the number of tabs available in Tills is reduced as only the settings relevant to MPOS tills are shown. The ‘Computer Name’ field is not shown for MPOS tills because the Broker handles this configuration – all POS BE needs to know is the address of the MPOS Broker, which is configured in Locations Advanced settings.


Indicates if the till is currently active (licensed).


Default layout for the MPOS till. All MPOS tills in the same location will share the same layout.
