Cash Register


a machine that mechanizes cashbox operations, the handling of monetary receipts, and the tallying of the value of purchases in commercial establishments with multisectional accounts. Cash registers tally the cost of items and sometimes the amount of change as well; they print and give a receipt, print the operations on a control tape, and accumulate the amounts of receipts on tally counters on the basis of departments, cashiers, and item subtotals. In addition, cash registers show the transactions on two-sided indicators; when the readings are removed and the tally counters are cleared, the cash register prints their accumulated sums and the grand total on the receipt and control tapes.
