Tender - DynaPOS Options

This tab allows you to set various options to control how the tender should be used by DynaPOS.

Figure: Example Tenders Screen

Tender Exact Amount

Generally you will accept as much of a tender as a customer wants to give to you. However, for some tenders you may only want to accept the exact value of the tenders, for example account sales.

Use for A/c Payments

Indicates whether this tender type can be used to make account payments. This is similar to the previous option, however it allows you to control which tenders can be used when accepting account payments.

Note: Foreign Currency is not supported.


Indicates if rounding of the sale should occur with this type of payment. For example, cash is normally rounded but EFTPOS is not. If you are accepting cash in Australia, you need to round the transaction to the nearest 5c because 1c and 2c coins are no longer legal tender. Check this option to round the sale. If the option is left unchecked, the transaction is not rounded.

Cash Drawer Opening

If this option is checked on then the cash drawer is opened when the tender is used on a transaction.

Interface to EFTPOS

If you are using integrated EFTPOS then you can use this option to indicate if this tender should start the interface.

Ask Cashout for EFTPOS

If you are using integrated EFTPOS then you can use this option to determine if you should ask for additional cashout. If you don't offer a cashout facility then this option should be checked off. For use with the Commidea interface this setting determines if the cashback prompt is via the POS (check box selected) or on the PED.

Maximum Amount

You may want to limit how much you will accept of certain tenders. For example, to limit your exposure to fraud you might only accept cheques up to a value of $300. Enter the maximum amount you can accept for this tender. By default this will be 999,999. If 0.00 (zero) is entered for this tender,then  no user input is required at POS as the payment is completed automatically, or if there is an amount outstanding it will go to the payment screen as expected.

Minimum Sale Amount

Most of the time a retailer is happy to accept any type of tender for a sale. However, some tenders are fairly expensive to accept due to processing fees, for example credit cards. For these types of tenders you might want to set a minimum sale level. The value of the sale must exceed this amount before you can accept this tender.

Minimum Service Amount

If the tendered amount is less than this value, a service charge will be charged to the customer.

Service Charge

This is the value and type of service charge that will be charged to the customer if the tendered amount is less than the Minimum Service Amount.

Interface to Hotel

Used when interfacing to a hotel system such as Micros Fidelio. You can charge a sale to a room and it will be passed through to the hotel system.

Default Amount

The default amount to be tendered for this tender. It is usually zero, which means the user must enter the amount being tendered. If an amount entered, the POS will automatically tender that value as soon as the tender is selected. This can be useful to represent certificates of set values.


Use for Returns and Refunds

Indicates if the tender can be used to give a refund back to the customer. Just because you accept a tender for a sale, doesn't mean that you will pay this tender to the customer in the event of a return. If this option is checked off, you cannot use this tender for a return or a refund.

Allowed in Refunds

This option should be checked on if the tender is allowed in return, even if it is not the original tender (in that case, the original tender is also allowed). Affects RETURN transactions.

Override if not Original

If checked on then supervisor input is required if the tender is not the original tender. Affects RETURN transactions.
