Depending on your location, you may need to use rounded payments in your transactions (for example, if your location doesn't use a one cent coin/penny). Luckily, Ascend makes it easy to set that up for you and your customers.

  1. Navigate to Options > Sales and Returns from the Ascend desktop.
  2. Check the box for Rounded Payments to activate payment rounding in your transactions.
