PUTTING  MONEY  IN  THE REGISTER Once  you  have  signed  for  your  change  fund as discussed earlier, you will have to arrange the cash from the change fund in your cash tray. It may  seem  strange,  but  the  number  of  cash handling errors you make may be related to how you  arrange  your  money  in  the  cash  tray.  After you  count  your  money,  arrange  it  in  the  cash register carefully as shown in figure 2-5. If your cash  register  has  less  than  five  compartments, place  any  checks  you  receive  during  the  day  under the  cash- tray in the cash drawer. Make sure all bills are placed in their respective compartments, facing up in the same direction. Make sure while putting the bills in the tray that they do not stick together. If the bills are new, it is a good practice to  turn  the  corner  down  on  each  bill  to  prevent giving two instead of one for change. Large bills such as $50 or $100 should always be placed under the  money  tray. Keep   coins   in   their   own compartments,  with  pennies  on  the  right,  then nickels, dimes, and quarters. Half dollars should be kept together in one compartment next to the quarters. Before  ringing  up  your  first  sale  of  the  day you should make certain the area around the cash register  is  clear. Do   not   clutter   the   area surrounding the cash register with signs, notes, or other items. The sales window should be clear so the customer can see the amount of sale being registered. Figure  2-5.—Arranging money in the register. 2-14 TAKING  THE  CUSTOMER’S MONEY Most  errors  happen  during  the  exchange  of money between the customer and the operator of the store. Before you actually take the money, ring up each item the customer is purchasing separately on the cash register. Do not try to add the total price  of  more  than  one  item  in  your  head.  The cash   register   is   designed   to   do   this   for   you. Complete each transaction before thinking about starting another one. This will prevent confusing yourself   and   the   customer   and   will   avoid any  shortages  or  overages  in  the  cash  re- gister.  Apologize  to  the  customer  who  must wait.  The  better  you  manage  your  customers, the  fewer  errors  you  will  make  in  handling money. Count  the  money  as  you  receive  it  from  the customer   for   each   sale.   Repeat   out   loud   the amount of money handed to you, as well as the amount of the sale. By doing this for every sales transaction,  you  avoid  the  chance  of  becoming confused if the customer should claim that a larger bill  was  given  to  you.  For  example,  as  the customer hands you this money, you should say, “Thank you, that will be $4.35 out of $5.” Leave the  amount  of  money  received  on  the  change  plate until  you  count  the  change  from  the  till.  If someone  interrupts  you  or  you  forget,  you  will have  the  exact  amount  received  in  front  of  you just  below  the  row  of  keys  on  the  register.  You will   not   have   any   doubt   or   mistakes   on   the amount.  Count  the  change  twice,  first  as  you  take it  from  the  till  and  second  as  you  give  it  to  the customer.  Start  counting  your  change  from  the amount rung up until you build up to the amount received.  For  example,  if  you  have  to  ring  up $4.35  out  of  $5,  you  would  pickup  a  nickel  and a  dime  from  your  till  and  count  aloud,  “Four forty,   four   fifty,”  and then pick up two quarters and   count   aloud, “Four  seventy-five,  five dollars.”  Repeat in the same way as you count the  change  into  the  customer’s  hand.  If  you  or the  customer  finds  an  error  in  your  count,  take back  all  change  from  the  customer.  Make  your corrections, and then count the change correctly into the customer’s hand. Now remove the money from  the  change  plate  and  put  it  in  the  cash drawer.  Be  sure  to  close  the  cash  drawer  after every  transaction;  never  work  out  of  an  open  cash drawer. If your cash register provides a receipt, tear the receipt off and give it to the customer. Always remember to look at your first receipt of
