The Global Payments ICT-250 pin pad is now fully supported by Cash.
Some minor adjustments are required.
- Plugin the terminal and record which Gateway Port is used.
- New computers may require the addition of a serial port to USB connector.
- Create a new merchant account for the Global Payments using the steps located here with the following alterations:
- On the Gateway tab of the new Merchant Account, set the Gateway Port to the above-mentioned port. Since this credit card processor is global, the port will have to be set per each location.
- On the Gateway tab of the new Merchant Account, set the Gateway to Global Payments Semi-Integrated Terminal.
- On the Tender | Credit tab under Maintain Settings, in addition to inputting the CC processor account number generated above, you should also ensure that the CreditCardProcessOutsidePOS radio button is set to false.
- Exit the program and restart it.
Using the Pinpad Terminal
- Place an order and take the card as tender.
- The tender screen for the card will look a bit like the processoutsidepos screen.
- At the bottom is a place for an optional identifier.
- This optional identifier is present for whatever information the CSR needs to record for the order - the color or size of a purchased shirt, for example, or other information.
- Because this data is not transmitted to Global Payments, it can be used simply for internal use.
- Accept the amount. Press enter.
- If the order is being paid with multiple cards, this is the point where you would split up the bill.
- For example, if two people are splitting a $50 charge, you could change the credit card amount to be charged to $25.
- Take the card as below.
- Repeat for the second amount.
- Using the before-mentioned "optional identifier" is a valid way to record that this is split up.
- Press finalize sale.
- 'Take Payment' screen pops up.
- On the terminal pinpad, the screen displays "Waiting."
- The customer swipes his card or uses the chip access. If this is a debit card, he will be prompted to input his PIN.
- If the card is approved, a receipt prints out.
- Once the receipt has printed on the pinpad, the Cash order will automatically close and leave the point-of-sale ready for the next order.
