How do I take a manual payment with my PhorestPay Card Terminal? (US Only)

This article applies to businesses in the US using PhorestPay through International Bancard.

If you are using PhorestPay through Stripe, please refer to this guide instead of using the information below.

With PhorestPay, you can make manual payments if customers want to pay over the phone or do not have their credit or debit cards on them.

When you click on either the Credit or Debit payment type or the calculator next to the payment type, you will see Manually enter credit card details with a checkbox underneath.


You will need to single-click this checkbox to process manual payment transactions on the PhorestPay device. After checking this box, click Pay.

Your PhorestPay device will then light up and go to the Tip screen, where you will then choose the tip profile. When prompted, use your Phorest Pay device's keypad to enter the client's card information, then press Enter.

The device will then ask for the Signature of the person who is putting through the sale, once the signature is added, press Enter. The device will then say Approved once the sale has gone through.
