Any transactions entered through the Daily Sales, Advanced Sales, Group Sales or Online Sales screens will have two parts; an Order and a Payment. Since multiple types of items can be grouped in these screens for purchase (e.g. tickets, a donation and a merchandise item), Altru uses an Order to collect these items into one transaction with one Payment.

Any transactions entered in the "Back Office" using Add a Payment, Add a Membership or Batch Entry will have a Payment component but not an Order.
