Whenever you click on a product from the left or scan its barcode, you’ll see it appear in the Cart.

In this window you will see on the left:

  • Total due: this is the total amount that the customer has to pay.

You can also split the payment and let customers pay the same order with more than one payment method:

  • Amount paying: enter here the amount that the customer is actually paying by each specific payment method.
  • Payment option: select here the payment method used.
  • Add another payment method: click here to add another payment method and fill in the Amount paying and payment option.
  • Popular tendered: here you you will find preset amounts that are smartly calculated. The first available one is the balance due, whereas the other ones are the nearest amounts calculated depending on the currency denominations.

Example

Let’s give an example to show exactly how this works.

John is buying a fridge and washing machine. He needs them to be delivered at home, so he will pay a €200 cash now and will pay the balance when the products are delivered at home.

The total due is 1.360,80.

He’s paying now €200 cash, so you can Clear the pre-filled total and type in €200, select Cash as payment method and then click on Add new payment method to let him pay the balance with cash on delivery.

In the popular tendered you will find some smartly calculated preset amounts, so, select the first one, which suggests you the balance of €1.160,80, to fill in the amount paying and select Cash on delivery as payment method.

Finally, click on Pay and an order will be created with Completed status. If you add also Shipping information, the order will be created with Processing status.

This is what the admin will see on the backend in the order details:

As you can see, you will find a metabox on the right side called POS info, which includes the Store name, the Register, the Cashier and the payment methods with the related amount paid.
