Creating a Gift Card Tendering Code

AccuPOS allows the use of Gift Cards. The merchant services must be set up with the ability to process the gift cards. Before a Gift Card Tendering Code can be created, a Gift Card Liability account must be created inside the accounting software.

Once that account is created, a Gift Card Tendering Code can be created inside AccuPOS.

NOTE: You must be running at the Pro, Gold, Platinum or Elite versions of AccuPOS to access Gift Card transactions that require a card swipe at the Point of Sale.

  1. Go to Manage Tendering Codes.

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

  3. Set the General Ledger Account to the specified gift card liability account created in accounting. In the example, we are using “Gift Card Liability”.

  4. Set the Type to Payment dropdown menu to Gift Cards.

  5. Typically, no change can be given for a Gift Card. Set the Maximum Change Allowed to 0.

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