Trading Day Overview

A trading day is the 24-hour business day that allows your business to account for sales that fall past midnight on a calendar day.

For example, if you are open until 2:00 a.m., you can set the trading day to close at 3:00 a.m. This allows sales past midnight to fall into the same business day as those that fell before midnight. 

We recommend setting trading day close one  hour after your restaurant closes. 

At the end of the trading day:

  • All open checks will be locked to close next day
  • Staff that is clocked in will be clocked out
  • Credit card transactions will capture and batch to your credit card processor
  • Your current trading day will end.
