The first cash register called as Ritty Model 1 was invented by James Ritty, an owner of a saloon in Dayton, Ohio in the United States in 1879. He sold his company later to Jacob H. Eckert of Cincinnati and Eckert in 1884 sold it to John H. Patterson, who renamed it as National Cash Register Company. The inventor Charles F. Kettering in 1906 designed a cash register with an electric motor. A cash register or till is an electronic or mechanical device which is used for recording sales transactions, calculating and has a drawer for storing cash.
