Some businesses, such as retail stores or restaurants, may prefer to summarize all sales for the day, rather than record individual sales to each customer.
How you record your daily sales will depend on the nature of your business. You can group items together into categories ( for example, different types of merchandise, or food versus beverages), or you can enter specific item totals.
To create a daily sales summary entry:
If all your sales are paid by the same payment method ( for example, cash ), or if you do not need to separate payments on your deposit by type, decide which deposit method you want to use and select it on the sales summary entry:
Please note: If you are using Payment items, you will receive an error stating: "You cannot use a payment item on a cash sale. If you are not receiving full payment for the sale, use the Create Invoices window instead of the Enter Cash Sales window." This is because the Payment item type is meant for partial payments received from customers, not for a cash sale that was paid in full. If you need to use Payment items, use the Create Invoices windows instead.
If these steps do not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.
