Managing shifts

  Background

You can use shifts on the terminal to track transactions processed. As you process transactions on the terminal, the amounts transacted are tallied throughout the working day. You can print a receipt that shows the running total at any time. At the end of the day, you can instruct the device to close the shift, which prints out the total amount transacted during the day and resets the counter back to zero. Any transactions processed from here onward is counted towards the next shift and the cycle repeats.

  This process only prints the receipt. Performing this action has no impact on the settlement of transactions processed.
