Setting up the Self Checkout Feature in Koha

Koha comes with a very basic Self Checkout module. This tutorial will walk you through the steps of setting up the Koha Self Checkout Module.

The first thing you will want to enable is the WebBasedSelfCheck preference. Set this to ‘Enable.’

To use this module you have to log in as a staff member with circulation permissions. You can create a staff patron specifically for this action so that you don’t leave a real staff client logged into a computer all day.

You can access the Self Check Module module by adding /cgi-bin/koha/sco/sco-main.pl after your OPAC URL.
Once you have opened the self checkout page, depending on your value in the SelfCheckoutByLogin preference, you will be asked to enter you cardnumber or username and password.
Once you’re logged in to the self check module you will be asked to scan the items you are checking out. When you start to scan items they will appear below the barcode box.
When you are finished scanning items remember to click the ‘Finish’ button. This will prompt you to print a receipt (if you have chosen to enable the system preference SelfCheckReceiptPrompt) and log you out of the self check module.
