I have tested your software and so far have been impressed with its features. I would like to switch to your software (we have 2 location and 4 registers), but we need a layaway feature. Do you have any plans of adding this to your software?
at this time the software does not have open account (AR) or layaway capability. Here is the current work around:
Hi James, we created a different work around.. not sure which is better. We created a payment entry... just like you did.
Step one: enter in items to be part of layaway, however, instead of processing sale, save the transaction. Be sure to enter customer info before saving transaction.
Step two: accepting payments using payment entry created just like you did in your example. Once the payment is processed, we apply it as a store credit in the customers file and include note in customers file.
Step three: When final payment is being made a) open the saved sales transaction, b) apply store credit (total store credit from all layaway payments), c) apply final payment, d) process transaction.
The only issue I can see with our work around is offsetting payments when we apply as store credit... can we off set applying payments as a check using AR and AR-?
Yes, I need this too. With invoicing (where i can add my logo to the invoice or create my layout) and monthly, periodic or adhoc statements of account.
Sorry, that last bit is for accounts receiving feature.
we're using a recently purchased version, 188.8.131.52 and are unable to locate either the AR function or more specifically the desired Layaway function anywhere in the software. Is is possible to add a button on the toolbar from main screen ( say next to the sale/credit/refund buttons?)
or update the users manual to show how to access these functions?
Has the layaway function been added? I'm running version 2.12.2 and don't see it.
Hi Desiree, not yet. Most folks use the AR Account for this purpose. Here is a video that covers that functionality. https://youtu.be/ocUXRZ5-moA
To turn on AR Account, go to Tools menu > Options > Business tab and enable the AR Account payment type.
