3. Select the Buyer Type from the drop-down to the left of the screen.
4. Click on the Event tab, and select the group that houses the event you wish to sell.
5. Select the Event. (Please note that if you have restricted prices to sell, you will need to check the Restricted Prices box before going into Express Sale)
6. Once you have selected your event, you can click on the Express Sale button at the bottom right of the screen.
(Note: If the Express Sale button is not available, make sure that the Terminal ID is set up and that you have a printer assigned to that terminal. The Terminal and Printer are both set up in Administration in the Settings folder, under Location.)
(Note: Then make sure that the printer is selected in the sales screen)
7. The Express Sale screen will allow you to only sell tickets for a single event that you selected. From the Express Sale screen, you will enter the number of tickets you need to sell to a patron on the left-hand side of the screen. Then, click the green +Add button.
8. To the right of the screen, you should now see the order information. The Payment information is on the bottom right of the screen. If you have a credit card swipe attached to the computer, you can swipe the card.

If the patron is paying with cash, you can select the $ icons at the bottom of the screen based on the cash amount paid. Click on the Apply Payment button to complete the transaction.
9. If you need to clear an order, you must do so before you process the payment. Click on the Trash icon at the top of the screen.
