If you want to change the Minimum Payment to a specific amount, set the Minimum Payment for customers on the Account Type properties set for customers.

1. When you click Account Types in the Database menu, you will see a list of all your account types.
2. Select the Account Type that you want to modify and then click Properties. You will see the Account Type window.
3. Enter the preferred Minimum payment. It is the lowest amount the customer should pay towards the account. This amount is displayed on the statements. The Minimum Payment field serves only to advise the cashier/customer about the minimum amount. The customer may pay an amount that is less than the defined minimum payment.


Since there is no option to set the minimum payment to be equal to current charges on the Minimum Payment field, we can modify the receipt to print the activities charge. The following line is modified on the attached XML file:

\Minimum Payment:\" AccountStatement.ActivitiesCharges

To use the XML file:

1. Download the file and save it in the ReceiptTemplates folder. By default, the path is:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Retail Management System\Store Operations\ReceiptTemplates
The path is defined in Store Operation Administrator (File \ Configuration \ Paths \ Account Statement).

2. Modify the configuration in Administrator to use the new file (File \ Configuration \ Paths \ Account Statement).
