Note  This article is intended for Minfos Pilot stores only. It contains either new or updated functionality that is not generally available at this time. Please look out for these new features in an upcoming Minfos software release.

Centralised Customer Accounts can be charged or make a payment without linking to a Customer, by searching in either Dispense or the Till.

Stores can link Customers to Centralised Customer Accounts, which allows customers to be automatically invoiced. Multiple Customers can be linked to the same Centralised Customer Account. If a customer does not yet have a Centralised Customer Account, refer to Add a new Centralised Customer Account.

Note Head Offices cannot link Customers to Centralised Customer Accounts, as Customers are saved locally at stores, not shared across the Multi-Store group.
