  • To convert the reservation into a sale, open the sales record by going to Sales | Sales records (you can search for the sale by name, sales number, etc.).
  • On the General information tab, you can see that the sale is out of balance because nothing has been paid.


  • Click on the Payment tab and click the Convert reservation to a sale button.

  • The Converting a reservation to a sale window appears – you can now record the payment.  Choose the payment type that the customer is using for payment…i.e., Cash, Credit Card, Check, etc…
  • For instructional purposes, we have chosen the payment type of Paid by Card.

  • Once you’ve chosen your payment type, if the payment is by cash or check, you can just click OK and the payment is recorded.
  • If the customer is paying by credit card, then after choosing Credit Card as the payment type you will click on Verify card.
  • A green window will appear to process the credit card.
  • You will see all sales done for that patron.
  • Make sure only the sale (s) you are charging the credit card for are checked in the upper portion of that window.
  • Then either swipe the credit card, if you have a swiper, or manually enter the credit card information.
  • Verify that the amount to be charged is correct.
  • Click OK.
