This glossary explains YumaPOS definitions and terminology used in this Online Help.


Accounting transaction An accounting transaction is a business event having a monetary impact on the financial statements of a business. It is recorded in the accounting records of the business. Examples of accounting transactions are: a sale in a cash to a customer or a purchase of inventory items from a supplier.
Applying documents In YumaPOS, recording the accounting transactions is reffered to as “applying documents”.
IMPORTANT: You can apply changes made to documents only in chronological order. For example, to apply changes made on February 22, you should firtst unapply all changes to documents made before that date.


Back office YumaPOS Back office is the core module of the solution that provides functionality for internal operations of your store, such as inventory control, transactions control, sales reports, customer related services, etc. Back Office consists of various modules and sub-modules that you can manage through Back Office Management console.


Disassemble recipe Disassemble recipe (or recipe of disassembling) defines a set of components that can be derived after disassembling a base inventory item. These components are considered to be new inventory items. The disassemble recipe contains the quantity and price characteristics of components par a unit of measurement of the base inventory item.

To clarify, consider the following example: 

  • Base inventory item: chicken
  • Components: chicken leg quarter, chicken drumstick, chicken fillet, etc. 


Inventory items As a rule, the menu items use some ingredients in their recipes. For example, a salad recipe includes potatoes, carrots, onion, sweet oil, and other ingredients. In YumaPOS, the ingredients are referred to as inventory items or stock items.


Modifier Modifiers allow you to customize the details of an item. For example, if you are selling a burger, you may want to give your customers the ability to choose what toppings they want on their item.  In this scenario, a topping is a modifier, and POS Terminal or Mobile application allows you to add the modifier price to the burger price.

In another scenario, you are selling products that have different pricing for sizes: for example, you have a base product of a small cup of coffee for $2.00 and the medium size for $2.50. To implement this scenario, you can also use a modifier with price of $0.50.


Recipe Recipe describes  a composition of menu items, inventory items or modifiers. A recipe specifies a list of ingredients and amount of each ingredient per a unit of measurement of an item or modifier.
