How to Work With the Till

Modified on Mon, 26 Sep 2016 at 06:19 PM

Opening the Till
The Till must be opened in SalonTouch before a sale can be made.  If the salon does not plan on using SalonTouch Pearl to keep track of their cash drawer totals, the till can be opened once and never closed.
  1. Click Register.
  2. Click Till - Current
  3. The yellow label at the top of the screen may read:

  4. If this is the case, enter the amount of cash that you are opening with.
  5. Click Save.
  6. This will change the label at the top to green and give information about who opened the till and when the shift started.

  7. Click Cancel to exit this window.

Closing the Till

  1. Click Reports.
  2. Run the Daily Totals report for the day.  This will be used to balance the till for the day.  You can either print a copy or reference the report electronically.  We will be looking for the information on the payment methods received today.  In the example below we had a total of $96.00 in sales.

  3. Click Register.
  4. Click Till - Current
  5. Count out the cash in the cash drawer and record the totals.
  6. Enter the information for non-cash sales such as check, credit cards, and other items.  In the example below we entered the $100.00 we started in cash along with $14.00 in cash sales, $15.00 in Visa sales, and $67.00 in MasterCard sales.  This brought our till total up to $196.00.

  7. Click Balance.

  8. A report will be generated comparing the amounts that the employees recorded with the amounts the computer recorded.  The till will either Balance, be Under, or be Over.

  9. We entered our information correctly and received the following:

    The employee can continue closing out for the night as normal.

  10. If the shift report ever generates:, the employee should immediately double check their sales totals and their math for the closing totals.
    The example below shows that the employee was over due to a simple math error when entering their information.
