In GTA Vice City, the exist but don't play any role in gameplay. While robing shops the player has to point the gun at the shopkeeper. So there is nothing to do with cash registers.
In GTA San Andreas, The cash registers can be destroyed by shooting at them and they will leave money on the floor. This money however, can not be picked up.
In Vice City Stories, cash registers are non-interactive, though they can be destroyed to intimidate the cashier. Destroying the shop will result in the cashier handing over approximately $100.
In GTA V, cash registers can either be shot at or the player can threaten the store owner to open the machine.
