This section contains rules and settings related to ordering and making sales.
Use floor plans
Select this option if you want to use floor plans, a graphical representation of your object or a store, If not selected, order number will be automatically assigned.
Floor plans are more suitable for restaurants. For using Aronium in retail, we recommend turning this option off as orders and sales are mostly created one after another, without actual need to keep multiple orders open.

Selecting Show sound options will make the following settings available:
- Navigation - if enabled, a sound will play when you navigate groups in visual layout
- Item added - If enabled, a sound will play when item is added to the order
- Item not found - If enabled, a sound will play when product with entered code or barcode is not found

You can search and add items using "Barcode", "Code" and "Name".

Default discount type
Choose between "Percentage" or "Fixed" discount type as the default one.
Separate row for each item
If turned ON, same items added to an order will not be merged, instead, each item will be stored and printed in a separate line.
For example, if this option is turned ON, when you add the same item 3 times to an order, it will appear as 3 separate items each having quantity of 1. Otherwise, if this option is turned OFF, if you add the same item 3 times to an order, it will be stored and printed as one item with quantity of 3.
Prevent negative inventory

If selected, user will not be logged out once order is closed, otherwise, user will be prompted for the password each time order is completed. Read more about signing out here.
Display receipt print dialog

Default due date
Sets default number of days for unpaid sales.
If receipt is closed with a payment type that has "Mark transaction as paid" turned off, this number of days will be added to today's date and will be set as a sales document due date.
This is useful if you wish to set default due date for all credit payments.

Shortcut keys payment confirmation
You can add a keyboard shortcut to a payment type. If this option is turned on, you will see a confirmation dialog when pressing selected key combination. This option prevents accidental payments started by using the keyboard shortcuts.
For example, if you create a payment type named "Voucher", and you assign a shortcut key "B" to it, when you press Ctrl+B on your keyboard, you will see the confirmation similar to the one below.
Please note that shortcut keys are available in Standard layout only.
