Hi. How can we help?

What is the float?


What is the float that Retail POS prompts me to enter when I open a register?


  • Retail POS for Mac or PC
  • Retail POS on iPad


The float is the amount of cash that is in your cash drawer before making any sales. You will be prompted to enter your float each time you open a register. When you close a register, the expected amount of cash will be your float plus or minus any cash taken in or removed.
