Note that while all regions are enabled, Vextend is configured with $ as currency symbol and two decimal places for currency. Currency features may not be compatible with regional styles. Vextend is free to install with no subscriptions or fees. Vextend is a private extension and is not created by, affiliated with, or supported by Vend POS. Change log 0.5.1.6 -Fixed Sales History page to be included as part of the extension so interface and hidden links function properly. 0.5.1.5 -Added open drawer button to the Vextend Top quick bar. -Added experimental support to open cash drawers connected to Star Webprnt enabled printers. (Note, Star TSP143 units are not Webprnt enabled. Star TSP650II units along with a few others do have Webprnt). Printing must still be handled by the Windows/Mac print drivers, but Webprnt will allow network connected printers to open the cash drawer faster by bypassing the Windows print driver. If you already own a TSP650II or other webprnt enabled Star printer, contact us if you want help to setup and test this feature. 0.5.1.4 -Adjusted prompt field from $0.00 entry to update slower on Vend sales info to compensate for slower devices to properly update the price without needing to hit tab. 0.5.1.3 -Added option to hide Vend Open/Close Drawer and Cash Management -Option to automatically print receipt immediately after payment is made (as opposed to the Vend default of after closing the change screen) -Add promo codes to the transaction notes for tracking in Vend CSV files.
