Removed tenders will not appear on any receipts because they were removed and not applied to the order.

Split Tender Reporting

The video below reviews tender (payment) reporting within Vin65.


Which Reports Changed?

Previously sales reports such as Sales By Date, Sales Detail (X), and other default Vin65 sales reports contained a summary of the payment information, either encrypted credit card data for orders paid for using a credit card or simply Cash or Check for other payment methods. These reports have been updated to remove columns related to the payment for the order. The following columns have been removed:

  • Gift Card, Points, Balance, Payment Type, Card Type, Card Number, Expiry Month, Expiry Year, Name on Card.

What's New For Tender Reporting?

There are 3 primary reports to use for reviewing and reconciling split tender transactions. Two of the reports are upgraded versions of previous reports (Sales By Tender Type & Payment Report) and one is an entirely new report (Sales By Tender Detail). The 3 new reports are:

Sales By Tender Type This Report will give the totals for each tender for a given date range. This is a summary report so you can get the totals per tender. This does not contain order information or specific payment information. Learn More >
Sales By Tender Detail This report is designed to allow order payments per order to be reviewed, in a similar manner as Sales By Date report does today. There will be no line items, rather order data with each payment. This report fills the gap between the sales by tender and the payment report. This will allow clients to review what tenders were used on each order. Learn More >
Payment Report This is still the best report for gateway reconciliation, as it covers credit card activity in detail for orders. This report has been updated so that orders with multiple payments will appear on multiple lines so that each payment can be reviewed. (CreditCard only. No GiftCard, Cash, or other tenders). Learn More >

Can a tip be added when placing a split tender order?

Yes. Customers that use a credit card as their method of payment on the iOS (iPad) version of the application will have the ability to leave a tip. The tip screen will be available to each customer so that each has the choice to leave a tip on their portion of the transaction or not.

The suggested tip values will be based on on the percentage of the amount being tendered (15%, 20%, or 25%). Alternatively the customer can choose to enter their own tip amount or choose not to leave a tip at all.

Top Of Page

Can I use the same tender type when splitting an order? 

Yes. For example: you could split and order with two separate cash payments or you could place an order split between three separate credit cards.

Top Of Page

Can the receipt email be sent to more than one customer?  

No. Only one order confirmation can be sent as a receipt of purchase. The email address that is on the original customer record that was selected or the one address that is added on the order will receive the email.

This works well for customers who are just paying for their order with two different payment types, say Cash and Credit Card, but not for orders that are split between two or more individuals. Only one person will receive the email. 

Top Of Page

Can I print a transaction receipt for each split payment?

Yes. At the end of the order process, after tendering out the last payment, there will be a Print Tender Receipts button on the Success window. Pressing it will print a separate transaction receipt for each of your tendered payment in succession.

Both will print as a single receipt with and will need to be torn into separate receipts. A tear line will indicate the break between each transaction.

What do I do if a credit card declines while I'm placing an order?

If the credit card that you are attempting to charge declines you will have to remove the card that was tendered and try another credit card or another form of payment such as Cash.

Top Of Page

My report (Sales Detail, Sales By Date, etc) is missing columns?

The default Vin65 sales reports that contained the specific payment method (i.e. encrypted credit card data, cash, check, etc) have been updated in split tenders, removing the following columns:

  • Gift Card, Points, Balance, Payment Type, Card Type, Card Number, Expiry Month, Expiry Year, Name on Card.

Rather than all these reports containing partial payment information there are 3 main reports for reviewing the specific payment method for an order: Sales By Tender Type, Sales By Tender Detail, and Payment Report.

How will split tenders affect my payment gateway?

If a single order has multiple tenders/payments, each credit card will hit your payment gateway. Each charge will have the same order number, but each charge will have different transaction/auth numbers.

Can I remove a tender (payment method) that I've added to an order?

If the order that you are placing is a split tender order , which means it is being paid for with more than one method of payment, you will have the option to remove or void (in the case of credit cards) tenders from the payment screen. See Remove Tender From Order Documentation.
