23. Printing Layaway Contracts

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


After printing one of the cash receipts described above, you can print a separate contract if the sale was a layaway sale. If you want to be able to print these contracts, you have to turn this option on from the Customize Half-Page Receipt Screen from the Store Information Defaults Section of the program. That is also the section of the program where you can design your contract. You can type in the words that print, the location of the name and address, and specify where the various numbers (layaway amount, number of payments, etc) print. If you have turned this option on, then after each charge or layaway sale, you will see the following question:

If you choose <Y>, the following worksheet will appear on the screen.




│     SALE TOTAL:   2289.49│

│   DOWN PAYMENT:     33.00│

│                 ═════════│

│    BALANCE DUE:   2256.49│

│        PAYMENT:    188.00│

│   NO OF MONTHS:   12     │

│  FIRST PAYMENT:  01/31/93│

│   LAST PAYMENT:  12/31/93│

│ WEEK/BI-WK/MTH:  W       │





The customer’s balance due will appear, and does not include any previous balances if applicable. Based on the standard number of months that you carry a layaway, the Monthly Payment amount will be calculated. If you want, you can change the number of months and the payment frequency (Weekly, Bi-Weekly or Monthly) and the program will re-calculate the monthly payment plan.


Note that unlike charge account sales, each layaway is maintained separately. Balances on existing layaways for this customer will not appear on this layaway contract.


Next, in the space below, you can type in some notes for this particular contract



┌ NOTES: ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┐

│                                                                              │

│                                                                              │





Then you can print out a copy of the contract. Depending on how you designed the Jewelry Shopkeeper’s contract, you can print on plain paper or a pre-printed, fill-in-the blanks contract.
