What is the proper way to sell things in a Yeshivah canteen on Shabbos?

The point of the canteen is to give access to kosher food to the students that need that availability. There is also a point or ticket system that they are rewarded with, that they can redeem in the canteen. They can get food with cash as well.

Answer:

They can pick up items in the canteen and pay after Shabbos. They should not mention price or measurement.

The canteen should find a method of keeping a record through paperclips etc.

Using points is OK. But it is questionable whether one may use special Yeshiva dollars or vouchers. See here for more on that.
