Running a Transaction

Transaction Items

The $ buttons on the right are quick-keys for a cash payment.

Available Credit

Available credit is the total amount of money the linked customer has available to spend in store. This means it is the amount the customer has available in customer store credit and if they are also a consignor any amount they have in consignor balance converted to store credit.

If your company is multi-location and has use customer store credit and/or use consignor balance across locations enabled then Available Credit will be the total amount available to spend in store across all locations. If in one location there's a balance of -$100 and another location has a balance of $50 then the consignor will not have any available credit.

Additional Store Credit Example:

John Smith is a consignor with $50 in consignor balance and the store offers 10% in additional store credit percentages. He has no money in customer store credit.

His available credit would be $55.

  • $50 in consignor balance + $5 in additional store credit (10% of $50)

Consignor Balance + Customer Store Credit Example:

Cody Martin is a consignor with $50 in consignor balance and $25 in customer store credit. The store does not offer additional store credit percentages.

His available credit would be $75

  • $50 in consignor balance + $25 in customer store credit


Receipt options can be configured in the Receipt Settings section.

There are several options for receipts at the bottom of the payment screen. If a customer is linked to the transaction who has an email on file there is an additional option to email a receipt to them.

  • Customer Copy: the regular itemized receipt

  • Credit Card Receipt: the regular itemized receipt plus a spot for a signature
