Hi Sarah,

The Payments: Desk source keeps track of Cash, Check, and Credit Card
payments. If other payment types (Forgive, Work, Goods) are used when the
payment is recorded, those receipts would not show up on that report.

You could try a report using the Payments: All source to see if those other
payment types are being used.

Hope this helps,
