I think Cody proposal matches the requirements as far as I can understand: 2 independent sequence numbers (one for the ticket and one for the invoice).
* Ticket displays the random number
* Invoice display random+standard no gap invoice number

You have full traceability in both direction

This is mostly not acceptable by tax entity. The voucher issued to the customer, call it invoice, receipt, etc should match exactly with your sale records. (Number, date (time sometimes) type of document). In Some countries are subject to cross controls.

Let me try again:

"How will you respect the No Gap Sequence of Invoices Being Off Line?"

I wont. I'll generate a "proforma invoice" in the "field", which would list a random number (I would have to give more thought to the seed); hand it to the customer, shake their hand, and go about my business.  

Then, wherever/whenever the connection is restored, I have Odoo "push thousands of invoices thorught syncronization processes", storing the random number alongside the "No Gap Sequence".

Now, you're talking about a supermarket, but the concept is identical.

"- What about Customers?"
   I use the random number.

"- What about accounting?"
   They use the "No Gap Sequence", because that's what the tax man wants.

this helps !
a great deal of supermarket clients in biological stores say no when asked if they want a ticket.
as a matter of fact, we're looking for a module that enables a button in the POS screen asking if customer wants a printed ticket (with the EPSON printer *not* printing by default, but only when the button is pressed).
do you know of such a module for v8.0?
thx, Ron

Well, normally the company must print the invoice in the moment that occurs the transaction (probably most of business have to do this anywhere, europe, usa, latin america, etc), so, by design ODOO POS, cannot generate the Invoice Offline, therefore, the offline feature is mostly useless, you have to be all the time online to sell goods.

Do not Confuse "invoice" with "ticket" in EEUU the ticket is given (and it can be doe properly off-line) and the invoice is asynchornous (frequently sent by email afterwards).
