Sales Summary - Payments

The Payments screen displays sales or purchase payments and a breakdown of the transactions, for example the payment method, the sales order code, user responsible, card type etc over a date range. Once the user has returned the results in the grid they can use the grid menu to print the contents of the grid or save the information as a text file, see Grid Menu. This grid also supports grouping so a report can be printed to see all payments, or receipts, for specified periods (Day, Week, Month, Year), within the filtered date range or group by credit card type.


The Payments tab uses the F4 filter button which allows users to apply the filters that are listed below in Available Filters. The Go button must be pressed to populate the grid if the F4 filters has not been used.

The Received or Paid Out radio button respectively control what results will be returned:

  • Received will display all payments that were received based on your filters.
  • Paid Out will display all payments made based on your filters.
  • Show in Base Currency (default=unticked): display the information in the base currency of the system rather than the customers/suppliers' currencies.


  1. The grid can display either monies Received or Paid Out depending on the radio button selected.
    Note: Payment amounts include the delivery charge, if applicable.
  2. Double-clicking on a line will open the [ Customer | Detail | General ] or the [ Supplier | Detail | General ].
  3. Please see the information on Sales Summary Filter Sets for information on using the F4 filter.
