5.1.1 Cash Payment Method

You have the option of entering cash that you received. You will see then that the change you owe to the customer is €29,50. Once you press "Confirm" the order is closed and CONFIRMATION SCREEN opens up. Here you can select if customer wants a receipt, if they want it printed, emailed etc.

5.1.2 Card Payment Method

If card payment option is chosen, the SWYPE POS will send a request to the Card terminal provider (a.k.a. Card Acquirer) which you have registered in the Payments section and wait for approval message from the card terminal that payment has been successfully completed. This transaction is called Offline transaction or card present transactions. Once approval has been received from the card terminal you can offer the customer a digital receipt (SMS or email) or printed. If no receipt is preferred, you can archive the order (Same process for all types of payments). Make sure your Email settings are set up properly in Settings, as the email button triggers the email client that is preinstalled on your device and is not a SWYPE specific service.
