Create additional order payment methods to take account of employees' lunches, and view sales reports by payment systems, delivery services, or couriers' work.

There are three main order payment methods in Poster by default: cash, card, or gift card. You can add an unlimited amount of additional payment methods to them.

To add the payment method:

  1. Go to Settings Orders in the management console.

  2. Click Order payment methods tab.

  3. Click Add.

  4. Write a Method title. It will be printed on receipts and displayed on the waiters register in alphabetic order.

  5. Select a payment type: cash or cashless.

    💡 Write a commission percentage of the bank or delivery service in the Service fee field of the cashless account. For example, 2.5% to the bank for acquiring services or 30% to the delivery service aggregator for attracting new customers.

  6. Select the icon color which will be displayed on the waiters or cashier register.

  7. Click Save.

To select an order payment method:

  1. Click Pay in the opened receipt on the register.

  2. Select a payment method field. For example, click the payment method icon or ••• to open the list of all additional payment methods.

Additional payment methods limitations:

— you cannot combine them with the main methods;

— additional payment methods don’t send the payment to the payment terminal.

How are payment methods linked to accounts

Payment methods are linked to corresponding accounts of each location.

— money for orders paid with cash methods is transferred to the Cash drawer or another cash account;

— revenue from cashless payment methods is credited to the Bank account.

When closing a cash shift, Poster will add transactions besides the main ones in Finances → Transactions. Cash and cashless transactions will be added for each additional payment method type. For example, ‘Delivery — Closing cashless shift’.
