Custom Accounts

CA-SHING can check just one or many Custom Accounts.  CA-SHING does this by going to a webpage that you create the returns results that are read in by the CA-SHING program. When ever their is a difference in the amount of your current balance CA-SHING will recognize this as either a SALE, if the amount that it just received is greater than the last time it got the balance, or a credit, if the amount that is just received is less that the last time if got the balance.

CA-SHING expects the results to come back from a query in the following name value pair.

total=400

The first field is total. This is the total sum of the balance of your custom account. This must be a numeric number. You can have this number be the total sales for the day. The extra field you can pass back it any additional information you which to display in the CA-SHING program like the item number. See below links for adding, editing and removing these types of custom accounts.
