Expand the heading "General" so that the different permissions become visible. Select the box next to the 'Recycling deposits'. This means that the selected user group is allowed to read and edit the deposits module.

🎓 Step-by-Step Instructions


To work with recycle deposits, you need to create deposit profiles in the booq POS Backoffice, which you assign to articles or article groups.

Click "General" and "package profiles" (bottom). Next, click "add profile" (top right of the screen). Give the profile a 'name' and then you enter the 'price' of the deposit e.g., €0.15.

Give the profile a 'sales name'. This name will also appear in the booq POS app and on the customer's receipt. Click "Save". You can add multiple profiles for items with a different deposit amount.

Assign deposit to product group

You need to assign the profiles to products or product groups. Go to 'Articles > Product groups' . Unfold the main category and click the "pencil icon" next to the product group to edit this group. Under the heading 'package profile' , click the drop down menu and select the appropriate profile. Click "Save". The deposit profile entered now applies to the entire article group.

Assigning deposit to a Product
