About Sequential IDs

In order to conform with certain local fiscal policies (e.g. Spain), printed receipts can be organized using unique Sequential IDs.

Considerations when using Sequential IDs

Restaurant Manager

  • In the Receipts report, Sequential ID will show in place of Receipt ID.
  • You can't delete receipts. This applies even to receipts created before switching to Sequential IDs.

Restaurant POS

  • Sequential IDs replace Receipt IDs. For example, you can search receipts using Sequential IDs.
  • When merging a receipt with a Sequential ID to another receipt, both receipts are kept on record. After the merge, the original receipt will have zero items. 

Printed receipts

  • The printed receipt will show a Sequential ID in place of a Receipt ID.
  • The Sequential ID is created when a receipt gets printed or finalized.
