How to start using Items
To start using Items in the app you need to enable it:
Tap the profile icon in the top corner of the app.
From this menu, switch on the "Show items in checkout" toggle.
That’s it. You can return to the “Checkout” tab to start managing your items.
Added items will sync across the SumUp App and profile and will also be available on both the Items and Invoices too.
Manage items and categories
You can manage the items you have available by adding, editing and removing items and their variants. To help organise these items, you can also create categories and assign your items to them.
On the "Checkout" tab, tap the edit symbol in the top corner.
A blue plus symbol will appear, tap it and select "Item".
This will bring up options to add an item name, description, price, picture, and tax rate. You’ll also be able to add variants of the item and assign a category and colour code to help with organisation.
Tap the blue tick in the top corner to finalise.
Press the edit symbol in the top corner of the "Checkout" tab and select an item to edit.
The item editing screen will pop up allowing you to alter any aspect of the item, including its name, description, category, tax rate, and price.
Note: To change the picture, simply tap the current picture and choose "Take a photo" or "Choose from gallery". You can also simply remove the picture.
When you’re done editing, just tap the blue tick to confirm.
To delete an item, tap the red "Delete item" button at the bottom of the item editing screen.
VAT rates are preset for your country of registration and a 0% tax rate is also universally included. If you need to add to, alter, or remove these rates, you can do so like this:
With "My Items" enabled, tap "More" in the bottom right corner.
Choose the tax rate you wish to change and amend the rate and/or name as desired.
Tap the blue tick in the top corner to confirm.
You can add a new rate by tapping the plus symbol beneath your current rates or delete existing rates by selecting the appropriate rate and hitting the "x" beside it.
From the "Checkout" tab, tap the edit symbol in the top corner.
A blue plus symbol will appear, tap it and select "Category".
Enter a name for your category and hit done to confirm.
Note: Categories are ordered alphabetically in your Items section.
Tap the edit button on the "Checkout" tab and select the category you wish to edit or delete.
To edit the category, simply change its name and hit "Done".
To delete, press "Delete" and then confirm by selecting "Delete” again.
Note: Deleting a category will delete all the items within it too. See the above instructions on editing items to change their category.
