This is the screen where cards are key-entered or swiped. At this point, you could hand-enter (key) in all the customer information, if for example, your customer had a card with a bad magnetic strip.
To swipe a card instead, just tap on the “Swipe Card” button.
This screen shows the overall transaction, the amount to be charged, and any signature that was captured on the screen. This transaction is ready to be charged, or, you can print a “Service Receipt” where the customer adds a tip, total, and signature. You would then add the tip before processing the sale.
Here is where you can add a tip, but also where you can enter any “Cash Discount Not Taken”. If your prices reflect for example a 5% discount for cash, you can add the 5% back here if the sale is not for Cash.
MID & Company Name
These show you which account (the software can work with multiple accounts) you are using.
You can have the software remember your password, if your handheld is otherwise protected.
When you have multiple PDA’s in the field, each PDA can have a unique numeric ID to identify which PDA each sale came from. Contact us to get this additional column placed on your online reporting system
Sales Tax Rate
Pocket Verifier Can calculate the Sales Tax for every sale! If you are moving from Venue to Venue, just change the tax rate here at the start of each show!
Always Add Sales Tax
Tax can be added or removed on the screen, but this can prevent you from forgetting it!
Send Signature to Server
Pocket Verifier provides server-side signature storage. The advantage is that you can use your MerchantAnywhere’s WEB-Based transaction system, “Transaction Central” for viewing and printing these approved transactions with the signature! No more lost receipts!
Edit Receipt Header and Footer
This allows you to customize the top and bottom of your receipts (Your Name cannot be changed with this in accordance with Visa Operating Regulations)
Show Tip Suggestions
On “Service Receipts” (Paper receipts that allow the customer to enter a tip), this displays precalculated amounts for 15%, 18% and 20% tip values.
Auto Print Approved Sales
Do you want the receipt to automatically print as soon as the approval comes back? Just check this box!
The Sales History database saves:
Completed Transactions can be refunded (Credited or Voided, depending on the batch status), and Pending (or saved) transactions can be processed.
Navigating the Sales History Screen is easy… The Tabs at the top allow you to view ALL transactions, APPROVED Transactions only, or PENDING Transactions only.
Pressing the phone’s MENU button, brings up a navigation bar, allowing you to easily flick between the oldest and newest transactions!
