Payment types represent the means of payment available to a patron. They are the base level at which cash and other items of value are tracked at POS and CashDesk. They might include cash denominations, credit card brands, or voucher values.
Examples of payment types:
- Cash denominations, such as $5 and $10 notes
- Credit Cards, such as AMEX, Diners, and Visa
- EFTPOS and EFTPOS Advance
- Gift vouchers, such as an Adult $10 Gift Voucher.
You need to have a Payment type for each payment method that you want to track separately.
Each payment type must be associated with a payment group. Multiple payment types can belong to a single payment group, or there may be a 1-to-1 relationship between payment type and group. The payment groups set up will determine whether the payment type is tracked by quantity, value, or both, and also whether it can be used as part of an opening float.
