Enabling partial payments
In a retail setting, it sometimes happens that a sales transaction is paid for with multiple partial payments, for example when a party of customers wishes to split a check, with each one charging a portion of the total to his own credit card. The Active Club support team can configure Active Club POS and your database to accept such partial payments. In this case, the Transaction – Data Entry dialogʼs Credit Card tab is replaced with the Payment tab.
This is similar in most respects to the Credit Card tab, with the following exceptions:
To redeem an Active Club gift card:
Follow the steps to create a retail sale.
On the Payment tab, click Gift Card.
In the Redeem Gift Card dialog, scan the barcode from the gift card.

Click OK and complete the order as usual.
