Lightspeed Kounta O-Series POS (Australia & NZ)

Requirements for Lightspeed Kounta POS and linking it in Tanda

Updated over a week ago

Lightspeed Kounta POS is a cloud based Point of Sale system which you can integrate with your Tanda account to feed in your POS data to track sales, create costed rosters.

How it works

  • Tanda automatically imports data from Lightspeed Kounta every 15 minutes

  • Imported data is broken down into separate datastreams in Tanda based on 'Register' in Lightspeed Kounta

  • Each datastream contains two separate data types:

    • The amount of sales (in dollars) within the 15 minute period

    • The number of transactions processed within the 15 minute period

Lightspeed Kounta POS Requirements

  • In order to integrate Tanda with Lightspeed Kounta POS you will need to have the Manage or Extend level account, which gives you access to Add-ons.

  • Within Lightspeed Kounta POS, you'll need to enable two Add-ons before you can integrate with Tanda:

In Lightspeed Kounta, navigate to Integrations and select Tanda:

Select Enable. 

Tanda Requirements

Once you've setup the integration in Lightspeed Kounta POS, you can connect it in Tanda. Navigate to Settings > Integrations > Demand Data Integrations:

Click on the Lightspeed Kounta POS and then click the green Connect to Lightspeed Kounta POS button.

If you're logged into Lightspeed Kounta POS already, Lightspeed will just ask for authorisation to link the two accounts, otherwise you will be prompted to log into your Lightspeed Kounta account.

Include sales tax in revenue totals is deselected by default. This means Tanda will attempt to deduct sales taxes from your totals when importing sales data. If you don't want us to do that.

Click Save Lightspeed Settings at the bottom to save the integration. Tanda will then import in real-time your sales data which you can use for Rosters, Reporting and on the Dashboard. Have a look at the Import your Revenue Data article for more information. 

If you ever need to remove Lightspeed Kounta POS from Tanda, just click Disconnect Lightspeed Kounta POS in this same screen in the top right corner:
