Inventory – Sales – Sales Money Payment
Sales Money Payment Overview
A Sales Money Payment is the last item in the Inventory \ Sales \ Data Entry, drop down menu.
The Sales Money Payment is usually referred to as a Money Payment.
A Sales Money Payment is used when a customer has paid cash for an item and then returned the item, receiving a cash payment.
Normally a Client is given a Client ID when they have a credit account or if you would like to keep a record of who they are for reporting. A Sales Money Payment as with the Sales Money Receipt is used when we do have or do not wish to keep a record of the person.
Any data entry field that has a light blue background is a linked data entry field. If you do not know the exact ID to enter, the user may replace some or all of the characters with the @ or ? symbols. The system will then display a much shorter list for the user to select the correct ID from. For example,if the user enters K@ the system will display all records beginning with K.
When a data entry field heading is underlined this indicates that once an ID has been entered the user may then click on the underlined heading. The system will then do a specific query for the ID as entered and display a list with just the single item in it. The user may then view or modify the item as normal.
On the Details Page there are five main areas of the Sales Money Payment screen
