The following steps describe how to make a payment during a POS sale.

  • When you select the payment button, a screen will appear.

  • If Auto Tender is turned on, the amount of the sale will be pre-populated as the payment amount.

  • If the payment amount is incorrect, enter the amount of the payment using the number keypad.

  • Select Cash or Check, then hit Total

  • If you selected Check, use the number keypad to enter the check number and hit Set.

  • If the payment is more than the sale, select Ala Carte to apply the change due to the students account. The Ala Carte account will allow the student to purchase anything from the menu.

  • Select Meal Plan only if the student is only allowed to purchase qualified breakfast and lunch with their money.

  • A 50/50 split will split the remainder between the ala carte and meal plan accounts.

  • No Give Changes would be selected if you are handing the change back to the student.

  • Cancel will cancel the payment.
