Parked Sales and Register Closures
Parked sales are not included in register closures. Your sale will only record under your register closure after the sale is completed (fully paid off or put onto on account or lay-by.)
How does this work in practice?
A customer's sale is parked today, and the customer comes in tomorrow to receive and pay for their items. The purchase and the payment will both be included in tomorrow’s Register closure.
