How to setup customer display

Last updated on 2024-01-21 3 mins. to read

The POS customer display screen is intended for the customer to view their orders. The Storefront POS is web-based. This means the screen can be operated on any Android, IOS or Windows tablet as long as you can browse to the Web page. You may prefer a tablet with a smaller screen.

Secure tablet on the counter

Your POS device should be properly secured to the counter to prevent theft. There are numerous anti-theft kiosk stands for sale that will fit nicely with your store's design.

Device permission

You will want to set up a device password to access the tablet. Cashiers should only be allowed to use the tablet, but should not be allowed to install new apps.

Android and IOS

  1. You have an account password that is different than the device password. The account password is needed to install new apps. Do not share the account password with your cashiers.


  1. Create a separate regular (non-Administrator) account that is shared between all of your cashiers.

Web permission

Add the Manage Register module to a page on your site. This page should be visible to all users.

You will need to pair the customer display with your host display. The pairing setup ensures the customer display shows the correct information matching the POS host display.
