Partial payments using the Entertainment option are not permitted. If an attempt is made to pay the remaining bill with another method, an error will occur.

In the example below, $5 has already been paid with Entertainment for a total bill of $28. If an attempt is made to settle the remaining $23 with another payment method, the system will indicate that it is unable to proceed as prior partial payment by entertainment was made.

X Reading Report

Sales covered by the Entertainment payment method will solely be reflected in the Sales Report under the Entertainment section. It's important to note that payments made through entertainment do not contribute to the overall sales count. Therefore, none of the other sales report information will be affected by entertainment. Since entertainment is also exempted from any additional tax charges, tax information will also remain unaffected.

Bills that have been paid by Entertainment will be reflected in the X Reading Report as shown below.
