The refund screen provides an easy one step process to handle an even exchange, a return in which you owe the customer money or an exchange in which the customer owes you money. The item will be returned to inventory or sent to the RGO holding bin. You can refund by cash, charge card, or in-store credit at the cash register. If the customer wrote a check earlier the same day, you can select to return the original check. If a refund check needs to be mailed, an inter-office e-mail is immediately sent to the person who writes those checks. The e-mail includes the customer's name and address, the transaction number of the original sale and for what amount the check is to be written.
