When a client would like to out something on lay-by or put down a deposit for an item, add them to POS along with the services/products in which they are wanting.
Click Receive Payment and enter the deposit amount and select the Payment Type for this deposit. In this case, the client is paying a $50 deposit.
You will then see the Add Another Payment Type button—click this and the remaining amount will display in the box below. This is the amount in which they will be paying at a later date, so drop down the menu next to it and select On Account as the Payment Type.
Now Finish Sale and take the deposit amount from the client.
If it's a product, which the client has put on layby, pop it out the back where your laybys wait until they are collected.
The client's outstanding account balance can be viewed in the Actions menu of the client's client card.
How clients can pay back their remaining amount in installments or all at once
Each time the client wants to pay back some of the remaining amount or even the whole lot, add the client to POS and click the Add Items link (in the light orange strip).
Select Add To Account and enter the amount they're paying back on the right side panel and Save.
Click Receive Payment, select the payment type they are using to pay back some of or all of the remaining amount, and Finish Sale like normal.
The client can continue to pay back the remaining amount in installments. The clients account balance will update each time a payment is made. The account balance is displayed in the Actions menu of the client card.
