The terminal is for your day-to-day operations and is where employees will spend most of their time in SimpleConsign. For each cash drawer you have in your store, you will need a terminal to go with it.
Only one computer can be logged into each terminal at a time.
There are two ways to log into a terminal.
- The first way is to log directly into a terminal from the main login screen.
- The second is to log into the terminal via the Back Office.
There are three components to logging into the Terminal:
- Terminal Login ID - always starts with a T followed by 5 numbers
- Terminal Password
- Employee Pin - always 4 numbers
The terminal login id and terminal password will be shared across all employees. The employee pin is something each employee should know for themselves and not shared with others.
Below is the login screen with sample login data for a Terminal. You can choose to either log into a Terminal or into the Back Office based on which information you enter.
Once you have entered the Terminal Login ID and password, click the "Login" button.

The second way to log into a terminal is through the Back Office Dashboard Tab. First log into the Back Office. Then, click on the green "Login To Terminal" button.
If your store has multiple locations be sure the correct location is selected on the dropdown before logging into Terminals from the Back Office. If you have the wrong one selected you will ring up sales in the wrong location.
