What is Non Payment Till & How to Set it in Candela
What is Non-Payment Till?
Non-payment tills function like retail POS where products are scanned and the total bill is issued to the customers. However, there is one major difference. Here payments are NOT received.
In any medium-sized or big retail store, you can see different POS counters for various product sections. These are usually non-payment tills. Here customers get their products scanned and collect bills, and submit them at the cash counter or payment-till to make payments and get the sales receipt.
Although creating a non-payment retail POS is not the first thing retailers think of when they buy retail software, such tills make checkout easier and faster. Since the products are already scanned and billed, the customers only have to make the total payment and collect their products.
Setting up and operating a non-payment till in Candela Inventory Management Software is very easy. In this article, we will show you what this till looks like and how billing is processed from non-payment to payment till
Let’s get started.

How Non-Payment Till Functions
When products are brought to non-payments, they are scanned (or manually entered). The system will automatically apply VAT and all product discounts already configured for any item.
But remember, all customer discounts, POS discount or adjustments are applied at the time of payment on the cash counter or payment till.
Once you save products and click the save button, the system prints the bill showing POS code, receipt number, and receipt barcode:
If a salesperson is selected at the non-payment till the system will print her or his name on the bill.
Remember: Bills made at non-payment tills have no impact on sales, cash ledger or stock unless the sales are punched at the payment till.
How Non-Payment Bills are Processed
At the cash counter, customers submit the bills collected at all non-payment tills.
To process payment, the cashier scans the barcode of each bill to load it on the payment screen. The cashier can also click F3 or quick links button and enter the non-payment receipt number in the pop up:
The bill loads on the screen and the Comments section will show invoice number, salesperson, and the total quantity of items of each scanned receipt
Checking Un-scanned Nonpayment Bills
Many bills are made at non-payment till during any given day. Sometimes, these bills are not submitted for payment. Such bills for which payment is not processed remain in the system until they are either processed or deleted.
