How do I store a client's card details with Phorest Pay?

Note: Due to regulatory constraints this feature is only available in North America.

Storing When Checking Out A Client: 

  1. Go to the "Purchase" tab on Phorest when paying a client out. 
  2. Payout the transaction as you would normally. 
  3. Choose the payment type "Credit".
  4. You will then see the options for "Enter card Manually" and "Save Card Details".
  5. Please note that the system will automatically default to "Save Card Details" and once you pay it through it the client's credit card will save to their client card. 

Storing Through The Client Card:

  1. Go to the "Clients" tab on Phorest and search for the client's name. 
  2. Open up their client card and select the option "Credit Terms".
  3. Once in here you will see at the bottom left corner the option to "Add Card". 
  4. The client will then need to enter their card details on the card machine and once they have done that their card details will be saved on the system. 
  5. You will then see the card details have been added and then press "Save".


Using The Stored Card To Pay For Items:

To use the stored card you will firstly need to enter the client card and after you have chosen the staff and items you will Pay and click the purple Phorest Pay payment type and click Pay once again, the Phorest Pay device will then ask you to confirm the amount


To select a different stored card that is attached to the client card you will click the arrow next to the Phorest Pay payment type. 

Phorest Pay Device:

When storing a client's credit card and using a client's credit card to pay for an item the Phorest system will look for the default Phorest Pay device. If you have multiple Phorest Pay devices please ensure you are using the default device assigned. 

You can check the default device assigned to that Phorest system by going to Manager > Settings > Point Of Sale > Device > Credit Card Configuration

Note: Phorest does not store the card on the Phorest system but rather tokenize the card as the card details are stored on International Bancard's secure servers, this is fully PCI compliant.
