Description

WMS provides two methods of payment entry.

Single payment entry*

Multipayment Entry

For entry of a single payment before dispatching an order, best used for cash sale customers or retail frontage payment entry. When this method is used, the payment is sent into Accounting software attached to the invoiced in the paid today field.

For businesses who accept several part payments or deposits and balance payments per order before or post-dispatch goods. When this method is used, the payment is sent into Accounting software manually either prior or post to invoicing the sale into Accounting software. The payment is attached to a blank invoice with the same invoice as the original transaction, and the payment is in the paid today field. This payment can then be applied against the invoice when it is finalised.

* This option is the standard option.

Payments can not be applied or reviewed for QUOTE, RETURN or HISTORIC Sales.
