Add extra functions to the Vend POS Sell screen for PC/Mac users
***IMPORTANT! Vextend Sell End of Life Notice*** This extension was created in 2017 by a Vend (now called Lightspeed) customer like you. However, the developer's own retail store switched to iPads in 2019, so any further developments of the extension has been limited. Starting in early 2024, Google may begin disabling some extension built on older software such as this extension, and unfortunately I do not plan to update or continue supporting this extension. So, at some point in 2024 the features of this extension WILL likely stop working. I have reached out to Lightspeed Commerence/Vend POS, to make them aware that some of their customers rely on this extension for some features, especially the customer facing screen. Lightspeed is interested in getting customer feedback around the key use cases for the extension. Please reach out to [email protected] if you are using this extension, so they can learn your use and see what solutions they may be able to provide in the future. While they have not promised any specific alternatives, they want to learn more about YOUR needs. Please remember that this extension was never created by, affiliated with, or supported by Vend POS / Lightspeed Commerce, yet they want to do their best to aid customers who did rely on this free, third-party product. They need your feedback now to learn what features are important to you such as the customer facing screen. Likewise, we are trying to give you and Lightspeed time in advance to prepare. Please be courteous in your interactions with Lightspeed as they are attempting to listen to needs, and thanks for choosing to use this free extension over the past few years. P.S. Please note that very soon we will be unable to make any future updates to this extension including posting any new messages or status updates from Lightspeed's possible alternatives, so make sure to reach out to them using the address above to follow any progress. Our backend extension for Lightspeed Retail (Vend), Vextend Office, has been updated to remain compatible with Chrome standards and will continue to be maintained for the foreseeable future. This is a completely different extension that doesn't carry any of the features of Vextend Sell.

- (2020-02-26) Alx Spiker: Very helpful vend extension, I just wish that the cash intervals were broken down more or provide an option where I can set the intervals like "5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50 and then a setting to set how many of the next closest ones to the total is. Example Total is $23.45, and my setting is the next 3, it would show 25, 30, and 35 as they are the next 3. Thank you!

I bought a TSP650II but I can't seem to get WebPRNT to work. IP address is correct, drivers installed, does Chrome block webPrnt commands?

Hi there, I am trying to use your Vexetend app but in the second screen that I am using was not showing up anything. I did extend my PC to another screen. I am doing a trial of Vendhq and not sure how I can extend it. Regards, Carlo

Firstly I would like to take the opportunity to thank you sincerely for the great application you have created which allows us to extend vend display to customers. It has been working wonderfully in our retail stores in the UK. We are facing an issue here in the UK, where customers can see the TAX Field, but they do not all understand that the tax is calculated within rather than on top. This causes frustration with some customers which often leads to a heated conversation. If there is a way, please is there a possibility, you could have an option on the backend where the user can choose to deactivate the tax field? We would be ever so grateful if this could be possible. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

- (2020-03-11, v:0.5.1.8) Vextend - printing
Hi - great idea ....addresses lots of the little annoying things that Vend have not ...however - still not sorted printing out for us on our win10 POS system 1) have been using --kiosk --kiosk-printing in Chrome to get kiosk screen and to drive through print preview straight to print - however print preview still appears (briefly) and then goes away and then the cash draw triggers and then the receipt prints - elapsed time >5 secs.... very frustrating 2) if you use --disable-print-preview in Chrome start up with --Kiosk and --kiosk-printing then you get no print preview screen BUT you get the standard print dialogue box where you have to confirm printer by pressing "Print" button again - same time and another pressing of button 3) Spoke to Vend - no help - other than to point me at your extension 4) installed and run it but still get print preview ghost up then another screen with **Open Cash Drawer** in background then it prints ....no time saving 5) Understand that using java you can use windows.print() to go straight through to print without any screens - Vend cant do it because they need to run this on Macs and that wont work there but..... can it be done in Extension?? In short we want a print button that does that instantly......no realtime lag whilst it goes away and thinks about it... Like the other features in your tool .....might be a couple of other ideas we can talk about if we can resolve this one. Thanks........Andy
