How to search an invoice or an item

There are several ways to search for an item in Alice POS. Here’s how to proceed.

How to search for items

  • Scan the item label in the search field of the Invoice module;


    • Manually enter the item name in the search field of the Invoice module. You can also search manually by entering the UPC code. For serialized items, you can search with the item’s unique serialized code.

Finding serialized items with its unique serialized number can help you find them more easily. This code begins with letters representing your store followed by a series of numbers. For example, say I own a company called POS Super. When creating serialized items, the system will assign a serialized number that starts with POS and ends with digits (for example, POS4350).
