Layaway Sales – Partially Paid Order

What’s a Layaway – Partially Paid Order

Layaway / Partially Paid order is a sale that allows you to take a deposit from a customer for an order, set the order aside, and allow customers to pay it off at a later date

On ConnectPOS, there are 2 ways to create a layaway order:

  • Customers have yet to pay for any amount and will pay the full amount at a later date.
  • Customers have paid the order partially and will pay the rest at a later date.
