Point of Sale Accounting

The accounting sub-section is where the financial account mappings are set for the POS system accounts, locations and categories.

System Accounts

System accounts in point of sale map revenue, cost of goods sold, inventory and write-off cost of goods sold to specific accounts for unmapped point of sale categories. When all categories are mapped to custom accounts, the system accounts are not used.
