Therefore, be sure to contact your tax advisor for a binding statement on how to use the orderbird cashbook correctly for yourself. Both orderbird and the Buder tax law firm exclude liability for the timeliness, accuracy and completeness of the information that orderbird provides here with regard to tax procedures.


In the orderbird cashbook you can see all your cash income and expenses. Card payments or transfers may NOT be recorded in the cashbook. When you start you have to enter the initial balance in your cashbook.

How about a tour?

Open your cashbook via the sidebar on your MINI.

At the top you see your current drawer, this is your current cash on hand. Below the amount you see how long it has been since you closed your last drawer.

Incoming (+) shows your cash income of the current drawer, Outgoing (-) your cash expenses.

Tap “Drawer Transactions” to see a detailed list of all cash movements. Each entry has its own ID. That and more information you can see when you tap on a transaction. 

"Balance Drawer" opens a counting log that will help you count your cash. All you need to do is input the number of bills and coins and your cashbook will add everything up for you.

At the end of the day (or shortly before the start of the next shift) remember to close your current drawer.

Good to know

When you close your drawer the next one starts immediately. Your drawer in the cashbook is independent from the shift which you open to accept payments.
