In the POS you can use different payment methods. In this article we would like to briefly explain the different payment methods:
"Open" means that the client will pay at a later date. In this case, you do not know yet which payment method will be used. For this reason the payment remains open. If the client pays at a later date, you can set the invoice to 'paid' in the invoice overview
If you have a EC/Debit card device on site with which the client pays the invoice, then you choose this payment method. At the end of the day you can compare all EC/Debit card receipts with the cash-book. The amount should match.
If you see that a client has transferred money to your online banking account, then you settle the invoice with the payment method "bank transfer". This payment method has no influence on your cash-book or on the daily balance, since you never have the money on site, but only on the account.
Credit Card (on site)
If you have a credit card terminal on site with which clients can pay, you select the payment method "credit card (on site)" for these payments. At the end of the day you can compare all credit card receipts with the cash-book. The amount should match.
Voucher (on site)
If the customer redeems a voucher, you choose the payment method "voucher (on site)". If not the whole amount is paid with a voucher, but a part paid with another payment method, you can use the partial payment
You will only see this payment method if the SEPA module is activated. If a SEPA mandate is assigned to the paying client in the client’s profile, you can pay the bills of this client with the payment method "SEPA". During the next SEPA run, all invoices will be debited from the client's account and automatically set to "Paid" by the system.
