Using Product Look Ups (PLU)

When using Point of Sale, Product Lookup Codes (PLU's) are used as a shortcut to quickly enter sales. PLU's eliminate the need to print a price tag for an item. They also eliminate the need to scan a bar code or enter the item number. Instead just a one or two digit PLU number is entered.

PLU's are especially useful when selling:

Small miscellaneous items such as are often displayed on or near the sales counter (trinkets, bubble gum, candy, mints, etc.)

Items which you do not wish to print price tags for.
