Cash management overview

This section provides information about using Toast APIs to perform cash management operations that get information about cash entries and cash deposits.

  • Cash entries include information about cash collected after employee shifts, cash paid for restaurant services, and cash paid to employees for non-cash gratuities such as tips entered in credit card payments. Cash entries also include cash added to or removed from restaurant cash drawers for non-standard reasons. In the Toast POS, these are cash in and cash out operations.

  • Cash deposits include information about cash removed from a restaurant and deposited in a bank or other financial institution.


The cash management API does not provide information about guests' cash payments for orders. You can get order payment information by using the orders API. For more information about the orders API, see Orders API overview.
