    I feel there needs to be a way to do this from the checkout screen. Also, we have many customers we don't get names for that just come in to purchase items (we just put it under a generic name we built into the system such as "Walk In") . For example we had a client today that purchased a few items on their last visit, and they came in today and wanted to exchange them for a different item. I had to issue him a gift certificate for the amount he returned, and then rang him up for the new product and used the gift certificate to pay. All in all it took almost 10 minutes of me fiddling around with the system to figure out an appropriate way to credit the customer, and then use that credit to apply it to his new purchase. I then had to manually change the item count in the inventory system once he left. I realize this could have been avoided by searching his name and doing the refund that way, but that doesn't really help in the event of an exchange, especially if they used a credit card. 

    I understand this is a fraud protection feature, having to search the client and issue a refund that way. All shops have different return policies. I just feel it would be more streamlined to just "trust" that each salon is doing returns correctly, and have a return/exchange/refund feature built into checkout that didn't require a specific customer to have purchased the item in order to exchange it. Many items purchased at my shop are gifts, which can make it increasingly difficult if i have to look up the person who purchased the item in order to refund the purchase.

    Just a thought!

    How do we look up a list of refunded/returned transactions and notes without looking for a specific customer return.  Is there a list of these somewhere in reports?

    Kristin - In the transaction list, you can select a date range in the filter and then check the box "show refunded items only". This will only list the line items that were refunded.
