Connect to Lightspeed K-Series (formerly Ikentoo)

This guide explains how to connect to your Lightspeed K-Series account.

To connect your Lightspeed account you need to go in Kitchen Cut to Settings > Marketplace > POS.

Please note, Lightspeed K-Series may be referred to as "Ikentoo by Lightspeed" here, so make sure you choose this one. You’ll then just need to enter your Business Location ID, which should show in the top-right corner when logged into your Lightspeed console.

Once you've connected with you Lightspeed login credentials, and linked your outlets with the EPOS ID, then you can check to confirm that data can be pulled over by going to Settings > System > API Clients. Here you'll see the Lightspeed connection, if you click Actions > View External Data.

You can then check to see if data is able to be pulled over the API by selecting a date on which you've made sales and selecting Load Data. If you see data pop up in the table then you know that your account is connected:

All that remains to be done is to set the time for sales to poll automatically each day. Just go to Settings > System > Data Processing, and find there API Service for 'Ikentoo Pull Request', and set it run each morning.
