New Point of Sale Requirements

Here is some information that retailers need to be aware of, if you're not already:

Effective January 1, 2007, a State law requires operators of electronic point-of-sale systems (i.e., "scanners") to ensure that the price of each item paid by any consumer be conspicuously displayed to the consumer at the time the system interprets the price. These requirements were established in Assembly Bill (AB) 2732 with amendments in AB 2285.

If your customers can currently read the price of each item and all required information is visibly displayed, no further action is needed. If price and discount information is only visible to the sales clerk, you will need to install equipment providing a display to the customer.
