POS will now feature Opt-In to Marketing Emails

Customers who opt-in to receive marketing emails will have their contact record updated to a Single Opt-In email status. This allows you to send marketing emails to the customer. The customer will also receive an email confirming their email address, updating them to a Double Opt-in status, allowing greater compliance with newsletter mailing list standards in different countries.


Desktop Installation

Download Google Chrome

1. Sign up for the WineDirect POS system.

2. Download Google Chrome for either PC or Mac.

3. Once downloaded, open this link https://pos.vin65.com in the Google Chrome Browser. 

For Australian customers, use https://pos.aus.vin65.com.

4. Save it to your desktop as a shortcut. To do this, click and hold the white piece of paper just to the left of your POS website address.

Now click and drag it to your desktop. This will save a link to your desktop, making it quickly and easily accessible.

Edit Google Chrome's Printer Settings

You will want to ensure that Google Chrome's printer settings are set up correctly before proceeding with the design of WineDirect POS on your Computer.

1. Open your Google Browser > click on the top right-hand menu > Choose Print

2. Here, an interface window will open up for the Printer Properties for Google Chrome. Ensure that you select the Receipt Printer that is connected to your network. You may need to press Change to change to the proper printer.

3. Click into the dropdown for the Paper Size and select 72mm x Receipt. If you are not using a supported Star Printer, you may have similar but different page size options in this dropdown window.

4. Under More Settings, uncheck any options with checkboxes for headers, footers, and background graphics.

5. Press Cancel beside the blue Print Button, and Google will remember these setting changes.


Setup a Desktop Shortcut and Kiosk Printing

You will want a desktop shortcut set up to access the POS and have everything working smoothly.

The following steps will show you how to set up a Desktop Shortcut and enable Kiosk Printing.

1. Download & install Google Chrome here: https://www.google.com/chrome

2. Check that your receipt printer is set as your default printer.

3. Launch Chrome and check that the Chrome Version is the latest.

4. On your Computer, find your Chrome program. Right-Click on it, and in the dropdown, choose to Send To > Desktop (Create Shortcut) 

5. Right-Click on that new Shortcut and then choose Printer Properties.

6. A window opens up and appears on the Shortcut tab. You will see a Target field containing information. At the end of the area, add in [space]--kiosk[area]--kiosk-printing https://pos.vin65.com/#/login 

7. Below is how it looks on PC.

8. Kiosk mode will force Chrome into a forced fullscreen mode and allow silent print where the print dialogue popup will not appear again. It would be a good idea to rename the Chrome shortcut to WineDirect POS or something similar. When done, press Apply.

Now your Desktop Version of WineDirect POS will operate the smoothest. Just open up that Shortcut each time.

  • If you need to exit kiosk mode, press the Windows key on your keyboard, and close the kiosk window from the taskbar.
  • If you need to use Chrome in non-kiosk mode, you will want to create another shortcut on the desktop without the Kiosk mode tags.
