Return of item from a ticket that had a 40% discount applied.

Return of item from a ticket that had a 40% discount applied.  Replacement items sold on same ticket as the return, also at 40% discount.  Receipt does not calculate properly.  We had to do the return as a separate transaction onto a store credit (gift card) and then re-ring the replacement item with 40% discount and pay for it with the credit on the gift card.  Why is this happening?  Can it be fixed?


Hey there, pabccb1.

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community. Thanks for providing the steps you've taken in trying to properly record the return item.

To determine why the receipt didn't calculate correctly, we'll need to see how the transaction is recorded in your QuickBooks Point of Sale account. Since we're unable to gather sensitive information in the Community for security reasons, you'll need to contact our Technical Support Team for help with correcting the receipt and making sure that your record is accurate.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Wishing you continued success with all your business endeavors.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
