Multiple Payment Transactions

Where a customer wants to pay by more than one payment type in one transaction. Sometimes you may encounter a customer who wants to use more than one tender-type for a transaction. For example, they might want to pay for a £99 transaction with £50 on a credit card and the remainder in cash. Here is how you would process such a transaction: After entering the goods select the Payment button so that you are prompted for the first payment:
 
Click on ‘Cards’ and you are then prompted for how much you wish to pay on the card. Override the amount shown (it always defaults to the outstanding balance). In this example we change it to £50, and then press Enter (or click the green tick) to proceed to the next payment:
 
The ‘Outstanding’ amount will now be reduced by the value of the first payment, leaving a balance of £49 that we can assign to the next payment type:
 
After clicking the ‘Cash’ icon the user is prompted for the amount tendered. If the customer tenders £50 in cash the user will override the value shown to £50, and then press Enter (or click the green tick):
 
Once the transaction is fully paid there will be no more prompts for payment, and the receipt prints out:
 
The receipt confirms the multiple payment types:
 
There is no limit on the number of payments that can be made against a transaction.
