Point of Sale (POS) Glossary
A split sale divides the transaction into two or more sales. Split sales allow a customer to pay by more than one payment method, for example, cash/credit, two different credit cards, or cash/check. A point of sale system would print a receipt for each part of the split sale.
Customers may request to make a split sale for various reasons. Some examples are: they have a per-transaction limit on a payment method, they have limited remaining credit on a card, or they may want to pay partially in cash.
A robust point of sale system can split a sale into more than one transaction. Refunds for a split sale would be refunded through the POS to the original payment methods.
