Points on Receipt

If checked on, DynaPOS prints a customer's points (up to but not including the current sale) at the bottom of the receipt. You can use the <POINTS> keyword on the Receipt Header on the Locations tab to do the same job. The keyword is better because you can control the position where the points will be printed. If you use this option, the points will simply be printed at the end of the receipt.

A/c Balance On Receipt

If checked on, DynaPOS prints the balances of a customer's accounts at the bottom of the receipt. Only those account types which are allowed to be printed are shown on the receipt. When you tender with a gift account, the remaining balance is printed under the tender line. The remaining balance will only be accurate if all transactions have been processed.

You can use the <ACCOUNTS> keyword on the Receipt Header on the Locations tab to do the same job. The keyword is better because you can control the position where the accounts will be printed. If you use this option, the accounts will simply be printed at the end of the receipt.

Print Points Expiry

When this option is checked you will be able to specify a numeric value and either 'Months' or 'Years' from a drop-down combo box. Therefore, if you want to display the total number of points that will expire at the end of 3 months (inclusive of the current month), the value of '3' should be entered along with the value of 'Months' being selected in the drop-down combo box.

Print Points Expiry Bands

When checked, points expiry receipt band printing is activated. This option is only available if Print Points Expiry is selected. When checked the points expiration is calculated and printed in bands of one month / year each. Therefore, using our previous example, we would see the number of points that will expire for each of the next 3 months. The points that are calculated are inclusive of the current month / year, and are calculated up to the end of each month / year.

Examples: If the current date is the 14/07/2010 and we wish to print points that will expire in the next 3 months.

If Print Points Expiry Bands in NOT checked then the following would be printed on the receipt: '2572 Points will expire by 31/09/2010'.

If Print Points Expiry Band is checked then the following would be printed on the receipt.

'311 Points will expire by 31/07/2010'

'2128 Points will expire by 28/08/2010'
