Orders/Payments Not Sent to Server

By Troy | Updated

Sometimes there is a message in the bottom left-hand corner of the Point of Sale login screen that says a certain number of payments/orders have not been sent to the server. There also may be a message that says orders have failed to send to server. This guide explains a few things that can been done when that message appears on the POS login screenL

Below are steps in the order of what would take the least amount of time to what would take the most amount of time. Revel recommends to do this at the end of service or when business is slow at the establishment.

Please check and make sure you're connected to the correct wi-fi network (this should be your Revel network) and that you're able to connect to the internet. An easy way to verify that the iPad can connect to the internet is to open Safari and go to the webpage youtube.com. If none of your POS stations can get online via Safari, please contact Revel support.
