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.
Customers love promotions! Buyers are often pulled in by one deal and wind up buying regularly priced merchandise in addition to, or sometimes instead of your discounted items.
