Adding a New Register

Adding a new register allows you to use Vend on an additional device. To add a new register, you will first need to add an additional register license to your Vend account. To do this:

  • Select Setup
  • Click Billing
  • Click Manage Licenses
  • Increase the number of Register licenses
  • Click Save
  • Click Adjust licenses

Additional registers incur an additional charge to the Vend account, this charge is made at the time the license is updated. A prompt will appear to advise you of any billing changes before you update your license. 

If you want to check your plan and billing information, head to the Billing tab in the Setup menu.

Add a Register

Once you have updated your license, navigate to the Setup tab and click on Outlets and Registers. Once here, click on the Add a Register button within an existing outlet or create a new outlet to create a new register there.

This will take you to the register setup page for the outlet you have chosen. Here, you will need to fill out the register details, receipt information and end of sale options for this register.
