Making Customer Accounts

This page helps you to understand 'Making Customer Accounts'.

It's part of the 'Sales' getting-started series.

Each customer in the KNAPS database is setup with a ‘Customer Account’.

The 'Customer Account' screen acts as a dashboard.

Access all the information for a customer here.

This includes:

  • Contact details
  • Sales history
  • Current and past debts/credits
  • Account payment processing
Note

'Account Customers' are different to normal customers.

The difference is they have a 'Credit Limit' set.
