What does the guide involve?

The guide consists of 5 lessons that are arranged in a recommended order:

Lesson 1: Account Settings

Lesson 2: Inventory

Lesson 3: Hardware

Lesson 4: Payment Processing

Lesson 5: Sales

Within these lessons, the articles are designed to provide a curated collection of instructions that accommodate all our retailers: from the mom-and-pop shops to the multi-stores.

The articles open by providing basic content curated for our users with one shop and one register. To build upon this foundation, an Advanced section is included where you can explore more instructions to embellish your account.

Lastly, you can always refer back to the above checklist to track and review your progress. If you prefer pen and paper, click here to download the Retail Guided Setup Checklist.
