Cash Register

James J. Ritty, owner of a tavern in Dayton, Ohio, patented the cash register on November 4, 1879, as he’d grown tired of his staff stealing his money.

The first registers were entirely mechanical, without receipts. The employee was required to ring up every transaction on the register, and when the total key was pushed, the drawer opened and a bell would ring, alerting the manager to a sale taking place.

John H. Patterson of the National Cash Register Company improved the cash register by adding a paper roll to record sales transactions, thereby creating the receipt.

Cashback at the till was introduced in the UK in 1990.

Cash register receipts are coated with obesogens, chemicals that (when touched) can make you fat.
