Simply select the donor (or add them on if they have not donated before – the EPOS system supports postcode lookup) and print the required number of “donor” labels, affixing one to each donated item. These are simply scanned when an item is sold to identify the donor and “link” the sale to them.
Processing a gift aid qualifying product sale through the charity EPOS system is kept deliberately simple. Simply scan the donor barcode, select the department (from clear on-screen buttons) and enter the price. Non-gift aid sales are processed in exactly the same way through the charity EPOS system, but without the need to scan a donor barcode.
Our charity EPOS system handles the statutory notifications that must be sent to donors informing them of their donated sales, through automatic emailing of donors. Our charity EPOS system supports all three retail gift aid schemes. A gift aid schedule can pulled from the charity EPOS system at any time in a format suitable for direct upload to HMRC.
For a typical charity shop, gift
aid is a complex or impossible task to handle - donated
items are sold without the valuable gift aid being
claimed. With a ProEPOS charity EPOS system, claiming
gift aid on sales is a very simple, cost effective
process and produces an overnight increase in revenues!
Few EPOS systems can deal with the unique retail
environment of a charity shop. Our ProEPOS charity EPOS
system however is uniquely positioned; our bespoke
Charity Shop module provides complete gift aid
management, tracking and automation of the entire
process of stock flow from donations being brought in,
to attributing individual sales to donors, issuing
statutory sale notifications via email and producing
detailed gift aid reports.
The magic lies behind the barcoding – clearly printed barcode labels and tags allow the system to identify a donor of a product whilst still allowing manual price entry and department selection. It’s easier to use than a till in many respects and much less prone to human error. Dates on the barcode labels also help with stock rotation – if an item has been on the shelf for too long without selling, it can be spotted in an instant and quickly and easily reduced in price.
With our charity
EPOS systems you can claim gift aid on the sale of
donated items – which means an overnight
increase in your proceeds!
A ProEPOS EPOS system from Image Retail Solutions will ordinarily pay for itself in the first few months
gift aid contributions alone!.
