Saved Sales Sync

Saved Sales Sync enables businesses with an active internet connection to sync open saved sales between registers and to securely back up saved sales, even if using a single device. With this feature, sales saved at one register can be viewed, modified, and finished on another, allowing flexibility to manage orders from any available device. When adding or replacing a register, backed-up saved sales will be available immediately.

This feature is only available for the ShopKeep Register for Android. To sync saved sales between registers on the ShopKeep Register for iOS, enable Serverless Sync™.

Saved Sales Sync Basics

Here is some basic information about how the Saved Sales Sync feature works.

  • Saved Sales Sync allows a business’s saved sales to be managed from any of its registers and to be automatically backed up in the cloud.
  • Saved sales sync between all registers activated on the same ShopKeep store, no matter which network each is connected to. When a new register is activated, existing saved sales will automatically sync to it.
  • Saved Sales Sync is enabled by default on all registers but can be disabled for individual registers that are working offline.
  • This feature requires an active internet connection. If you plan to use registers without internet, disable Saved Sales Sync to avoid recurring offline warning messages.
  • Best Practices for Saved Sales Sync

    For Saved Sales Sync to work most effectively, follow the best practices for using this feature.

  • Saved Sales Sync requires a stable internet connection. To be sure your network will perform as needed, we recommend following our best practices for network setup.
  • If multiple employees are helping the same table or party, each employee should manage their own separate saved sale (instead of managing the same sale together) and merge them, if necessary, before completing the transaction to avoid unnecessary conflicts.
  • If internet unexpectedly goes down, create and modify all saved sales from a single register able to accept all payment tenders needed for checkout to ensure saved sales will remain intact on one register, and not be divided among multiple registers, if connectivity is not restored.
  • If you plan to operate any particular register(s) offline, disable Saved Sales Sync on that register to avoid offline prompts when managing saved sales.
  • Saved Sales Sync Settings

    While it is recommended to keep Saved Sales Sync enabled, if you plan to continuously operate a register without internet, disable Saved Sales Sync on that register to avoid recurring offline warning messages. If disabled, Saved Sales Sync can easily be turned back on.

    Disabling Saved Sales Sync on a register will immediately sync its saved sales to other registers with the feature enabled, then remove them from the disabled register. After the feature is disabled, sales saved at that register will no longer be backed up or synced to other registers.

    1. Sign into the register as a register manager.
    2. On the register menu, tap ‘Setup’.

    5. (Optional) Repeat steps 1 - 4 to disable the feature on other offline registers.

      Saved Sales Sync will remain enabled on other registers until these steps are repeated.

    6. To re-enable Saved Sales Sync, perform steps 1 - 3 on a register where it is disabled.
