Creating a Debit Card Tendering Code

To process debit cards using AccuPOS, a merchant service account and a pin pad are required.

To set up a Debit Card tendering code:

  1. Go to Manage Tendering Codes.

    create debit pos tender

  2. Enter “Debit Card” in the ‘Displayed Button Text’ and ‘What will print on receipt’ fields.

  3. Set the General Ledger Account to a specified sales account in the accounting. In the below example, we are using ‘Undeposited Funds’.

  4. Set the Type to Payment dropdown menu to Debit Card (auto capture).

  5. Set the Maximum Change Allowed to the maximum amount of cash that can be given back to the customer from the Point of Sale (the below example is $50). Keep the field blank if you do not want to allow a cash back option. If you do allow cash back, make sure the Open Cash Drawer checkbox is checked, otherwise leave it unchecked.

  6. Click Add Tender when finished. The List of Current Tender Types window on the left should be updated with the new tender type.
