How to start a suspended sale/layaway

PHP Point Of Sale makes suspended sales/layaways easy.

Simply start a sale and add items. you can also specify payment and customer information.
see Creating Sales & Returns

When you are ready to suspend the sale, click the "Suspend Sale button".

From here there will be 2 options:

Saving Layaway or Estimate

Once you click either Layaway or Estimate the sale is now saved so you can access it later.
