Depending on your location or contract agreement with manufacturers or vendors, you may be limited in the amount of cartons able to be sold on a single transaction.
Exceeding these limits may result in fines or loss of benefits per your purchase agreements.
For this, FasTraxPOS has built tools to assist you in alerting and controlling excessive sales.
Using the Carton Counts function can proactively alert your cashiers to possible contract violations.
Q: What does Carton Counts do?
A: Carton Counts is a way for you to control the amount of cartons sold on a single transaction per manufacturer/vendor contract agreements.
