Making a purchase on Mobile +

To accept a credit or debit card payment, go to the Quick Sale screen and make sure your keypad is paired with your mobile device–the Bluetooth button in the upper right corner should be on.

Then choose the Credit/Debit option to see the available payment options.

Once you’ve entered all the sale information, hand the keypad to your customer so they can insert their card, confirm the amount, and enter their PIN. For contactless payments, customers can simply tap their card on the top of the keypad. Once this step is completed, you can send the receipt by email or SMS.

 

01 Quick sales

The Quick Sale feature was designed to process payments easily, without having to specify products or services. For example, you could use this for the occasional sale of products or services that aren’t in your catalogue.
