We’re excited to introduce our new scale integration today, making Cashier Live a great choice for any retailer that sells products by weight. We’ve been testing our scale interface for weeks and we currently have a number of laundry services, candy stores, and hardware stores utilizing this new feature every day.
We’ve chosen to work with Mettler Toledo, so if you were looking to integrate your scale with Cashier Live then we would highly recommend that you choose one of their scales. Other scales may work, but we haven’t tested any other brands so we can’t make any guarantees. While new Mettler Toledo scales can be on the pricy side, we’ve had a number of our customers find great deals on eBay. One tip: be sure you purchase a scale with the correct sensitivity.
To ring up an item by weight, all you need to do is enter the item lookup code on the Cashier screen (you can use the find item button to easily search for it). If that particular item is designated to be sold by weight, a message will appear asking the cashier to place the item on the scale. The scale will weigh the item and send the weight directly to Cashier Live, entering it in as the quantity and automatically calculating the price for you.
In addition to our scale integration, we’ve also made a change so that you can ring up items with a decimal in the quantity. Anyone with a mechanical scale, or one that we don’t integrate with, can use this to enter in the correct quantity.
Let us know if you’d like your store’s scale to integrate directly with your point-of-sale and we’ll help you get everything set up.
