How to Setup and Print Gift Receipts in QuickBooks Point of Sale
You can print a gift receipt that does not include specific item, price or payment information. This feature is useful around Holidays or if you specialize in gift merchandise.
With a gift receipt, customers can safely include the receipt inside a gift package or give the receipt to the recipient. If the recipient needs to return or exchange the gift, they already have the receipt and there’s no need to inconvenience the gift giver.
The bar code printed at the bottom of the gift receipt indicates the original receipt number and you can quickly find the original sale receipt by scanning the gift receipt bar code (or typing the receipt number) in the Quick Find window on the home page Navigator or the Find Receipt window in sales history.
With the gift receipt preference turned on, you are prompted to print a gift receipt every time you save a receipt. Each workstation can enable gift receipt prompting individually.
To be prompted to print a gift receipt on every sale:
- Return to the Home Page if not already there.
- From the File menu, select Preferences > Workstation.
- Select Documents & Printers from the preferences list on the left.
Verify the printer and print template to be used for gift receipts. Note: The gift receipt printer is automatically set to the same printer used for regular sales receipts, but a different print template can be used if desired.
- Select the Print Options page from the preferences list on the left.
- Select the Prompt for gift receipt with each sale checkbox.
- Select Save.
To turn off prompting of gift receipts, return to the same page and clear the checkbox.
