Adding Customers to a Sale in Vend for Mac or PC


Latest update: - Mikey Jarvis

To record a customer on a sale, follow the steps below:

1. In the search box, type the customer's name, phone number, email, company or customer code.

2. A drop-down will show matching customer names. You can keep typing more letters until the results are filtered enough to find your customer.

3. If your customer is not found, you can add the customer without leaving the sale screen. Just hit 'create new customer' and we'll open a window for you so you can add the customer.

You can add:

  • First and last name
  • Company
    • Phone number
    • Email
    • Customer group, if your store admin has set one up
    • Turn loyalty on or off

You can also click the 'Show more fields' button to add a range of more specific details, including:

  • Postal Address
  • Customer Code
  • Gender
  • Website
  • Custom Fields
  • Date of Birth

Once you've added the customer's details, click 'create new customer'. The customer will now be added to the sale and to your database for future reference.
