Random Weight Items

A random weight item is one that is weighed on scales, and the scale prints a label with the item PLU and sell price on it. The POS will scan that barcode to determine the item. The barcode that is printed is of a special format. Barcodes starting with 02 indicates that the barcode has a 4 digit PLU for the item. A barcode starting with 20 has a 5 digit PLU. Some countries can use additional prefixes. This section allows you to specify the prefixes that can be used for a barcode containing a 4 digit PLU and those containing 5 digit PLUs.

Prefix 3 Digit PLU

A comma-delimited list of the prefixes that are used for barcodes with 3 digit PLUs.

Prefix 4 Digit PLU

A comma-delimited list of the prefixes that are used for barcodes with 4 digit PLUs.

Prefix 5 Digit PLU

A comma-delimited list of the prefixes that are used for barcodes with 5 digit PLUs.

Verifier Digit

Item verifier digit. Basically another check digit but not needed or used for most modern scanners. If the option is turned on to ignore this digit, the price size will increase. Care must be taken when setting this parameter as very large prices will start appearing if certain products still contain/use the verifier digit.

Multi User Sale

A prompt can be shown on the POS when pressing Payment that shows additional operators to the transactions for Split reporting purposes, that is a sale can be recorded to more than one person. The system requires MCS to function rather than at a local level. The receipt shows the additional operators in the receipt header.

Allow multi operator transaction

If checked on will allow the POS to accept multiple operators for a transaction.

Scale Settings

Both these settings are used by DYNAPOSTOUCH in relation to the selectable Tare Weights. The formatting of the Tare Weight value is displayed to match the decimal accuracy of the scale, and only Tare Weights which are divisible by the scale division will be displayed.

Accurate To

Allows the decimal accuracy (either 2, 3, or 4 decimal places) to be selected.


Allows the scale minimum unit division to be selected in accordance with the decimal accuracy.

Receipt Barcodes

To support the printing of up to 3 customer-specific barcodes to the receipt footer, these settings allow you to map the required format to BARCODE1, BARCODE2 and BARCODE3 for the till. The special keywords <BARCODE1> and so on can then be added to the receipt definitions as required. The maintenance function (DataEntryItems.exe Barcode) defines the barcode formats including the required information.

Note this means that your POS must have a printer that supports barcode printing in the formats you are using and that you have the correct barcode escape codes set in POSPRINTER.

Format 1-3

Defines the barcode values (1, 2 and 3) to use for a specific till profile.
