There are five (5) basic methods in which payment may be received from customers. These payment methods are:

1.Cash - If the customer hands you physical cash you need to enter the amount of cash received. TurboCASH will display the amount of change that you need to hand to the customer. 

2.Credit Card - If the customer presents a credit card, you need to enter the amount of the transaction in the “Credit card” field. The screen will change to allow you to enter the basic details of the credit card (card number, card holder's name, card type and the expiry date of the card). 

3.Cheque - If the customer presents a cheque, you need to enter the amount of the transaction in the “Cheque” field. The screen will change to allow you to enter the basic details of the cheque (bank account code and cheque number). 

4.Account - If you have a valid customer (debtor), with approved credit facilities, you may select the debtor (customer / client) account. This will charge the amount of the Point-of-Sale Invoice to the debtor's account, which the debtor later needs to pay when they settle their account. 

5.Voucher - When the customer or debtor pays, they may produce vouchers as payment or part of payment for a Point-of-Sale Invoice. 

In most cases, the voucher may be presented together with cash, a credit card, cheque or account. In this case you need to enter the amounts received by cash, credit card, cheque or to charge the invoice to a debtor (customer / client) account, and the amount or value of the voucher, if vouchers are presented.
