Payment Types are used to specify what type of payment was used for a transaction. This information will be included on your Sales Report and End of Shift Report.
There are four payment types available to use: Cash, Check, Credit Card and Other.
- Cash - Used for all Cash transactions. When selected from the check out page, you will have the option to enter the Cash Received, and eVetPractice will calculate and display the Change Given.
- Check - When used, the Check payment type will let you enter the check number, and the Deposit date. You have the ability to set the Deposit date to a future date for held checks. The check amount will not be entered as revenue until the date of the Deposit date. This will occur automatically during the early morning hours of the day.
- Credit Card - If you are using an integrated credit card vendor, you will always select a Credit Card type for all credit cards. When a Credit Card type is used, the user will see a prompt to select a terminal, enter the last four digits of the card, and will send the transaction to your terminal when you Process the payment. If you have the option to Store credit cards, you will also have the option 'Store' available at check out.
Note: The program does not process Debit Cards. If a Debit Card is used as payment, it will be processed through as a credit card.
- Other - The Other payment type can be used for any other payment method that you do not want to group with Cash, Check, or Credit Card Payments. Examples of types of payments that a practice might classify as "Other" might include "Write Off," or "Collections".
