The POS settings refer to your main system that XpressPOS is to deliver the data to. This page covers the selection of export format required, and the method that XpressPOS will use to transfer the export file to the POS/ERP/Accounting system.
Select the POS button. When XpressPOS is first installed, no Export file format has been set.
Select the Change POS button.
If you see an empty list as shown below, it means that no Export file format has been installed. Please see the Saberis email with the download links and the instructions for installing the export file format.
WARNING: Falcon users of the Andersen and other Windows & Doors modules should use the Eagle format. Falcon users of the 2020 Kitchens module must use the Falcon format.
XpressPOS creates the export file in the:
C:\Program Files\Saberis\XpressPOS2006\exportfiles\ folder.
The file is then copied or transferred to its final destination as determined by the settings in the File Transfer Method section.
(A) Transfer the export file using standard windows path:
(B) Transfer the export file using FTP:
If there is no direct network path to the target server, then use the XpressPOS FTP feature.
If necessary, contact your IT department or your POS vendor's support for the settings. You will need:
The server IP number
A user name with rights to write to the server. Your computer user name may not have the needed rights.
The password for the user name
The target path on the server. Shown below is the ECS Pro V 4.2 path.
If any of the information in the four boxes is incorrect, XpressPOS will throw a FTP error when you try to process an order.
