Taking Payments for the Sale

Latest update: - Admin

Once you have added all your items, you are ready to take payment for the sale.

Click the Pay button. You will be taken to the payment screen where you will find a variety of payment type buttons (determined by what the store owner has chosen).

If the customer is paying cash, you can type in the cash amount tendered. Vend will tell you how much change you need to issue.

Multiple payments/Split payments

You can take multiple payments types on the same sale. To do this, type the amount the customer wants to pay and choose the payment button. Once it is processed, the remaining balance of the sale will be adjusted, and you will be able to apply the next payment type.

When taking multiple payments, the different payments will be reflected back on the Sell Screen when you click Payments.

Card Payments

If the customer is paying by Credit Card, you will be able to complete the sale by selecting an integrated payment type. For more information on payment types available with Vend click here.

Customers can pay with Loyalty if you have Loyalty enabled in your store. To process a payment using Loyalty, add products to the sell screen and add the customer who wants to redeem their Loyalty.

Tip: If you want to check the Loyalty balance of this customer before processing the sale, search for the existing customer and click on their name. The customer should now appear in the Checkout section, click on their name to view their Loyalty balance.

Next, click Pay. You can use Loyalty to pay for the sale in full or use it as a partial payment. To pay for the sale in full, click the Loyalty button below.

To pay for some of the sale using Loyalty, adjust the amount tendered to the amount of Loyalty the customer wishes to redeem, click the Loyalty button below and pay off the rest using cash or card payments.

If the customer is new, you can add them to your customer database and enable Loyalty for them right from the Sell Screen. Just click Create New Customer, and Vend will open a window for you so you can add the customer's details and tick loyalty on or off. Your customer will now be all set up to earn loyalty!
