Welcome to Parse Pay! Use this guide to familiarize yourself with how to begin building your menu in the Parse BackOffice (backend) and preview what it will look like in the Parse Register (frontend) before onboarding or installing equipment.

- Step 1: We create your account.
- Step 2: Receive the welcome email.
- Step 3: Log into the Parse BackOffice.
- Step 4: Launch the web-based version of Parse Register.
- Step 5: Build your menu in the Parse BackOffice.
Step 1: We create your account.
A Parse Pay Account Specialist will contact you to get some basic information required to create your account, such as your email address, desired password, location and device name, number of registers, etc. Once we have the information we need, we will create an account for you.
Step 2: Receive the welcome email.
Once the account is created, you will receive a welcome email that includes the username and password to your Parse Pay account and links to the support articles in our knowledgebase. If you landed on this article from the link provided to you in the welcome email, you're ready to proceed to step 3.
Step 3: Log into the Parse BackOffice.
Open a new tab and navigate to www.dashboard.parsepos.com. Log in to the Parse BackOffice using the username and password provided to you in the welcome email. At this stage in the process, you will use the BackOffice to build your menu, including creating categories, modifier sets, and items. Note that in addition to managing your menu, the BackOffice is where you can add/remove employees, manage timecards, view sales reports, and much more. We cover this in subsequent articles and video tutorials.
Step 4: Launch the web-based version of Parse Register.
We provide you with access to a front-office (Register) account, which simplifies the process of building out your menu by allowing you to preview the layout of the menu on the Parse Register. Note that the system is designed to work only work on Parse Pay's approved hardware. As such, the Register may appear slightly different when previewed in the web browser since the display settings on your computer are likely different than the Registers (1920 x 1080).
Part I: Launch the web-based version of the Register.
Open a new tab in your browser and go to www.demo.parsepos.com. This will take you to the Setup Wizard.
Part II: Complete the Setup Wizard.
The first step in the Setup Wizard is to enter your username and password (same as the Dashboard) and click Continue.
The next step in the Setup Wizard is to select your Location. This system will automatically populate the Location that we used to create your account. Click Select Location.
The third and final step is to select a Device. Like step 2, the Setup Wizard will automatically populate the Device we used to set up your account. Click Finish Setup to complete the Setup Wizard.
Part III: Open a Drawer.
After completing the Setup Wizard, you will land on the default Login Screen. Since this is the first time logging in, you will need to open a drawer. Enter the PIN "1111" and click Open Drawer.
Since this Register is used solely to preview your menu, you don't need to enter an opening amount. Click Open to open the cash drawer with a value of $0.00.
Congratulations, you are now previewing the web-based version of the Parse Register.
Step 5: Build your menu in the Parse BackOffice.
You can now proceed with building your menu in the BackOffice. By having both tabs open, you can preview the Register to ensure it matches how you want it to appear on the terminal. Note that you will need to sync the Register after you make a change in the BackOffice.
To perform a could sync, click the hamburger menu icon in the Register screen's top-left corner and click Cloud Sync from the fly-out menu.
