Help in generating my custom reports

Hi! I was wondering if any of you have ideas on how to generate a report so that i can view the total amount (sorted by: cash, credit, check) received by my cashier by the end of the day.

So far i have explored two payment schemes and these are:

  1. POS Billing - which takes complete payments via Sales Invoice but does not take partial/advance payments. correct me if i might have missed anything.
  2. Journal Entry - takes partial/advance payments but a bit more complicated to use compared to POS billing.

Advice on how to correctly use these payment methods would be greatly appreciated. And any ideas on how i can generate reports to properly check daily payments received?
