Can I deactivate/reactivate Cloud Retailer POS lanes for my down/busy time of the year?
If you have multiple licenses of Cloud Retailer at your store, you may choose to deactivate a license during the slower times of the year. You must always keep at least one license active in order to take advantage of this benefit. If you take a single sale through a register you will be charged for a full month of service on that lane.
Currently, we are not imposing any additional fees for this service outside of the regular monthly charges but may revisit as required.
**For all deactivations, please be sure to have all of your batches closed and shifts reconciled prior to requesting the lane be shut down.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know the date, store, and lane you would like to deactivate. Be specific to avoid the wrong lane being shut down. You must also let us know if this is for a specific period (give the dates) or if it’ll be ongoing. Your ticket will be added to the support queue and processed in the order it was received.
Billing: Billing is processed on a calendar month basis. Your automated billing will be held beginning with the month following your deactivation. If you have prepaid for your service annually, a credit will be placed on your RITE account for the dollar amount of your remaining months.
