in the ordinary course of things, yes it should do.. however you may need to cater for partial payments, credits & debits. A customer may have an account which they make payments independently of the actual transaction. Eg they may be part of a monthly club, they may pay monthly (in advance or at the end of the month).. arguably they may make a purchase but no have sufficient funds to cover the account. if your real world situation requires that then you probably need a mechanism to allow this to be accounted for so the till balances and the end of the shift/day.

I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
