History of the Cash Register

 Imagining a store without a cash register paints a poor way of tallying up daily sales. Before the 1880s, most retail establishments did not know whether they were making profits or losses and most people suffered because they easily lost money to sales clerks.[1] This trend changed with the invention of the cash register after the civil war. This began the innovations that revolutionized the retail industry after the “incorruptible cashier” came into place. By the 1900s, shopkeepers could audit all their transactions, helping businesses collect market research. In 1960, the retail industry shifted to electronic registers. Great electro-mechanical inventions of this era included the mechanical cash register. Before 1977, electro-mechanical cash registers aided in sales, before increasing sales levels of most retailing companies.[2] The sale of cash registers grew rapidly as compared to other general merchandise.
