Closing Out the POS & Clearing Open Carts

Follow the steps below to clear out open carts from your POS. If you come across any carts under Store > Carts that can't be deleted or have issues, this information will also help you.

Note: We recommend closing out the POS/Checking for open carts at the end of every day. If you have issues closing out a cart, contact support@commerce7.com.


Step 1:
Click on any open carts showing at the top of the screen and follow step 2 to cancel or complete them.


Also, you will want to click the green plus and click "From Another POS" to check if any carts are left open from any other POS systems. If there are carts on any other POS transfer them and follow step 2 to cancel or complete them.

If you have a cart with issues or are trying to clear an open cart from your Admin Panel > Store > Carts, you will need to open the cart on your POS. Here's how;

Open the cart and copy the cart ID from the URL. Your cart ID is the string of alphanumeric characters following the /cart/ in the URL.

Example:

https://christines-test-environment.admin.platform.commerce7.com/store/cart/b08740eb-4df3-4ec8-ab81-be40e4b1ede5

Next open your POS and start a new guest tab. 

In the URL of the new guest tab, paste the cart ID you have copied to replace the string of alphanumeric characters after the /pos/ in the URL.

Example:

This URL:

https://christines-test-environment.pos.platform.commerce7.com/pos/97eef26b-665b-4cc3-828a-970c5af151b2?posCollectionId=e134e2f5-b107-4e61-a4cd-c9e7a555d9ce&adminStatus=Available

Becomes This URL (notice the cart id in bold):

https://christines-test-environment.pos.platform.commerce7.com/pos/b08740eb-4df3-4ec8-ab81-be40e4b1ede5


Now, follow step 2 to cancel/complete these carts.

Note: if you are using POS Pins, follow the above steps and then add /charge at the end of the URL after you have pasted the cart id. 

Step 2: Cancelling or Completing a Cart With a Waiting Tender

With the cart open, click the cancel order button. If there is a tender waiting you will get the message that a tender is waiting and the cart can't be deleted, then click the Charge Order button and proceed to the next step.

If there is no tender waiting the cart is cancelled and there is nothing more to do.

After clicking Charge Order you should see the screen below, click the 'Check Response At Poynt' (or other gateway) button and this should complete the order. If it doesn't for any reason, you can click Resend to Poynt, cancel the payment on the terminal and click Check Response At Poynt.
