Additional Information

Limitations

  • Revel POS is limited to a single barcode per item, 4 digits or greater. Yellow Dog's sync will push UPC1 if it is populated with a code longer than 4 digits; if UPC1 is not populated with a valid UPC, the Yellow Dog sync will push UPC2, UPC3, or SKU, whichever has a valid code first.
  • Because of the way that Revel Systems receives images, we are unable to push images to Revel's API.
  • After updating items in Yellow Dog and running the sync, a Refresh is required to update the Revel POS.
  • After updating items, their placement on the Revel POS screens may change.
  • Revel has specific limitations to the number of API calls that can be made to their API per day; this can cause delays with initial item pushes into Revel POS.
  • Our current integration is designed for retail sales only and does not currently support F&B specific elements such as modifiers.
