After creating a cash drawer in the Back Office, you’ll need to configure its settings and assign it to a physical drawer, POS device, and/or POS users.
- From the main navigation menu, go to Configuration > Devices > Cash drawers.
- On the Cash drawer page, select Edit next to the cash drawer you want to configure.
- Apply the desired settings to the cash drawer. To learn about each setting, see the Cash drawer settings table.
- Click Update to save changes.

|Cash drawer Name||Cash drawer Name||Rename your cash drawer as needed.|
|Physical drawer||Printer to use to send commands to the cash drawer||
If a physical drawer is connected to a receipt printer via a cable, select the printer from the drop-down menu to link it to the cash drawer. After selecting a printer, additional settings will appear:
|Cash drawers||Counting options||
Controls the behavior around counting the cash drawer at the POS:
|Initial cash amount at start of shift||The default amount of money that the cash drawer will contain at the beginning of a shift. This figure can be overridden if the user counts and enters a different amount when opening a shift.|
|Allocate non-cash payments to this cash drawer instead of the server's float||Adds non-cash payments to the Drawer report and automatically opens the cash drawer when a non-cash payment is accepted.|
|Connections||Devices allowed to use this cash drawer||Define which POS devices this cash drawer is associated with.|
|User groups allowed to use this cash drawer||Define which user groups’ orders will contribute to the drawer amount.|
|User groups that can manage this cash drawer||Define which user groups can open the drawer.|
Now that you’ve set up cash drawer settings from the Back Office, you can use the cash drawer or user wallet feature on the POS. Using this feature enables you to count your cash before and after a shift. See Counting a cash drawer for more information on how to use a cash drawer with the Restaurant POS app.
