Create a POS payment method

POS payment methods are methods used in the POS for creating payment lines (like cash and credit cards). Every POS payment method that is created can be set up in buttons and used for conducting payments during a sale.

All payment methods have their own cards where all necessary parameters are set up. To open a certain payment method card, highlight its line, and click Manage in the ribbon, followed by View in the dropdown.
