What Is a Point Of Sale Deposit?

A point of sale deposit is an advance payment made by customers at a point of sale terminal towards expenses anticipated in the near future or as a security deposit.

Customer at Point of Sale

For example, the deposit amount paid may be for children's school lunches or a partial deposit for a custom order. The mode of payment could be check or credit card.

Modern POS software includes advanced features to accept deposits and group them separately, deducting the deposit from the total bill when the order delivery is complete.

There is provision to refund the deposits (or any goods returned) in the software used at the point of sale terminal.
