I would like to how to deal with advance payment done by customer. For example, a customer pays only $10 as advance for a product of $50 price, need to generate bill containing advance payment done of $10 and a remainder balance of $40.

How can I achieve this in POS?

create a product (service type) and call it "advance payment from customer); available for the POS.

Create a specific payment method for the POS and a specific accounting journal to record these payments (debit bank account and credit customer account ).

At the time of payment a cash ticket will be printed.

when the customer confirm his order for product XYZ you will be able to deduct the payment in advance (adding the prepayment with a Minus sign on quantity for the amount already received in advance); it should make the trick; waiting for a proper and more integrated solution from Odoo. (at the time I am wrinting this may have been done for V10)
