Payment Summary

The payment summary can help you investigate questions such as, "What percentage of my business is third-party delivery?" For the selected timeframe and locations, this report includes rows for each type of tender that your business accepts that had a transaction in authorized, capture in progress, or captured status for one or more items. Voided transactions are not included.

The report's rows include:

  • CREDIT - for payments made by any type of credit card.

  • CASH - for cash payments.

  • GIFTCARD - for redemptions of gift cards maintained using the Toast gift card feature.

  • HOUSE_ACCOUNT - for checks charged to a house account managed with the Toast house account feature.

  • Refunds - for credit card refunds. Currency values in this row are negative.

  • Future Order Payments - for payments in any tender received before the report start date for orders fulfilled during the selected timeframe. (On Analytics & Reports > Overview, this payment type is labeled Deposit Sales Collected.)

  • Each payment type configured in the Toast administration back-end on the Payments > Other Payment Options page, such as third-party delivery services, additional gift certificate or gift card programs, university meal plan accounts, and so on.
