Step Six
The next three check boxes determine whether or not a memo will be required when this payment method is used. The memo is entered by the staff member creating the ticket and SuperSalon gives the option of having that memo appear on the client’s receipt. By keeping these blank, the memo is not required when creating the ticket.
