How does a restaurant point of sale system work?

A POS system tracks sales. The waitperson enters the ordered items into the computer or by touching the screen. … When the customer pays the waitperson enters the receipt number and the amount paid. The POS charges the credit or debit card or — in the case of cash — enters the cash amount and calculates the change.
