I’m a very busy person, how much time does it take to set up Jaldi POS?

It really depends on how many products you have and how busy you are. Some merchants complete the process within a couple of hours, but if you have tons of SKUs and not a lot of free time, it could take weeks. We do understand that time is money for entrepreneurs, so in order to make set-up as quick and painless as possible, we recommend that you prepare CSV/Excel files of the following before starting the process:

  • List of all products, batches
  • List of prices and tax information
  • List of SKUs or barcodes
  • List of Customers
  • List of Vendors

If you need someone to walk you through the process, just get in touch with us and support staff can assist you. Tenth Planet also offers professional services that include hands-free setup (where we take care of everything, including migrating products and customers) and one-to-one training. Contact us for more information.
