How are payments made during the booking process handled on the Shore POS app?

  • When you check-out an appointment at the Calendar app, the POS app is opened with the cart already pre-filled with the booked service(s). If the appointment was already paid during the booking process, you will see that service in the cart with the price of €0. 

  • You can add any additional services or products that were not part of the initial payment normally. 

  • When you generate the invoice, services paid during the booking process will be listed with the price of €0 and a footnote (with the payment method, transaction ID and time of payment) will be added to the invoice.
