Trade In

Trade in allows your customer to trade an item for the amount that he needs to pay.

The trade in payment method appears during checking out your customer and the customer name is required in order to select trade in as your payment method.

Customer Notes

The customer notes field can be used to save internal notes. These notes will not be printed on the receipt and will not be visible to the customer.
