Additional functionalities of the POS terminal to streamline your business:

This functionality is dedicated to points of sale where tipping is an integral part of the transaction. The tip is a separate item, distinct from the transaction amount. Unembossed card holders can also leave a tip.
Cashiers logging enables the sales to broken down by individual cashier as each of them enters their personal password. The sales of each cashier are recorded and their ID number is printed on each transaction receipt. Furthermore, a summary statement of sales can be printed for each cashier at any time or at the end of the day.
Manual Data Entry (or MO/TO – Mail Order/Telephone Order) transactions are also known as card not present transactions. Card details are manually keyed in on the POS terminal. The transaction takes place on the basis of a written, e-mail or telephone order issued by the credit card holder. MDE transactions are commonly used to make hotel reservations or payments after the guest has left.
With the calculator functionality, basic mathematical operations can be performed directly on the POS terminal. How the calculations are presented depends on the user (on the screen and/or printout from the POS terminal).
In addition to the standard information printed by the POS terminal, additional alphanumeric information about the payment, such as subscriber number or policy number, can be placed on the receipt. This tool gives you the possibility of linking the payment to a particular customer or product for which the payment was made. Transactions with a description can be verified by accessing an encrypted website. The data can be exported to an .xls or a .pdf file.
