Tip Prompt Percentages
You can customize the tip % amounts that appear on the Card Terminal screen. The order of appearance for tipping amounts on your Card Terminal screen will be top-to-bottom, following the left-to-right order on the settings screen (example below using the settings in the screenshot above).
A Custom tip and a No tip option are also displayed underneath your tipping amounts.
Fixed Tip Threshold
When the Fixed Tip Threshold setting is enabled, your client will be prompted to add a monetary tip amount instead of a percentage tip amount for sales where the total price is below your threshold amount.
For example, using the settings in the screenshot above, the Card Terminal will display $5, $7 and $10 tipping options for every sale where the sale total is below $50. If the sale total is $50 or higher, then the tip prompt percentages will be displayed instead.
Include Retail Sales in Tips
This setting allows you to choose whether the tip amount should be calculated based on both services and retail or only on services in the sale. When disabled, the tip percentage is calculated using the total price of services only.
Tip Prompt with Saved Cards
When enabled, you can send a tip prompt to your PhorestPay Card Terminal when using a client's stored card for payment. Click here for more information.
