How to separate checks at order time


POS APP: Order > Pay

Who are the payers at order time?

There are two ways that the customer notifies the server that which seats will pay the bills :

1- The customer notifies at the order time.

2- The customer notifies at the payment time.

Here, we will explain the first method. how you can define to the LimeOrder Point Of Sale software which guests are the payers at the order time.

If the guests ask the server at payment time about how they want to do the payment, the system covers all the possible scenarios. You can find out more about all the other methods in “Splitting The Bill At The Payment Time“, “How To Pay By Multiple Payers“, “How To Pay Equally“, “Pay Per Seat” )

For the first scenario, when placing an order for each seat, the server assigns a check number to that specific seat. for the sake of this example, let’s change the check number for seat number one and change it to “Chk2” as shown below. It means we have at least two checks for this order. we assign chk2 to seat 1 and assign chk1 to seat2 in this example. you can leave chk1 for seat1 and set chk2 for seat 2 which will be simpler too.

By default all food is ordered under seat1 as the order shows:

To order items for another seat, you can click on “>” button or the “+” button to move to seat2.

Now you can order some items for seat2

So we have seat1 and seat2 that both have items ordered.

Click on the “PAY” button on the top of the main window.

Since we have two seats now, the system will ask us how many payers, choose two payers.

Now we can see two bills that are split by seats. We can pay each of them respectively by clicking on the “PAY” button.

To order for a new seat, click on “+” button to add a seat3,

Now you can see the seat 3 has a check number 1, which means the items ordered by seat3 will be payed together with seat2.

After ordering items for seat3, click on the “PAY” button to pay the bill.

In the popup window, input the number of payers:

Now you will see a popup window shows the two checks to be payed.
