Exercise 9-1 Accounting for credit card sales L.O. C1

Petri Company uses the perpetual inventory system and allows customers to use two credit cards in charging purchases. With the Omni Bank Card, Petri receives an immediate credit to its account when it deposits sales receipts. Omni assesses a 4% service charge for credit card sales. The second credit card that Petri accepts is the Continental Card. Petri sends its accumulated receipts to Continental on a weekly basis and is paid by Continental about a week later. Continental assesses a 2.5% charge on sales for using its card.

Apr. 8

Sold merchandise for $9,500 (that had cost $7,021) and accepted the customer's Omni Bank Card. The Omni receipts are immediately deposited in Petri's bank account.
12

Sold merchandise for $4,100 (that had cost $2,657) and accepted the customer's Continental Card. Transferred $4,100 of credit card receipts to Continental, requesting payment.
