Create an Open Priced Item

Set up an open priced item in BackOffice so you can sell it at the register.

  1. From the Items List in BackOffice, add a new basic item.

    Only basic items can have open pricing. Items with variants cannot be open priced.

  2. Fill in the item's details and set 'Priced' to 'In Store'.

    In Store enables the cashier to enter the sales price at the register when selling the item.

Sell an Open Priced Item

An open priced item has no set price, so the cashier enters the price as they ring it up. Use open priced items to sell things like shipping costs, bulk goods, or other miscellaneous items.

  1. Add an open priced item to a sale.
  2. Enter the item's sale price and tap 'Done'.
  3. Complete the sale as usual.

    Visit our Running Sales at the Register article if you need help finishing the sale.
