Adding Payment Methods
In this guide you will learn how to add payment methods in Arrowat POS System. Arrowat POS System at this moment don't support other payment methods like use debit cards or read cards from banks. However you can use your own card payment from the provider you choose and then attach the id or other information from the card payment device printed on the receipt. this will help you to know the receipt id printed from the payment processor correspond to the sale where it is added.
While Arrowat POS System has not it owns card payment method, we have been enabled it that you can add manually it by requesting an input box to cashier to add the ID or other information
from the receipt printed of your card payment provider, this can be Payment Transaction id, other information you may like to relate the sales with the payment.
Usually it is what card payment processors does when they are attached to the Point Of Sales Software. We exaplain in the following.
How Payment Processors Work?
When a Payment Processor divice is attached to POS Software the information of the payment card input by the customer on the processor device is requested from the bank, when the bank authorize the transaction payment amount the processor returns the transaction information to the Point Of Sales software, if the transaction is success the Point Of Sales Software automatically closes the sale as Paid, if the transaction is declined the Point Of Sales Sofware won't do anything and returns a message to cashier "Declined Or Invalid" That is how many Payment Processors work. In other words when customer swipe or insert the card on the Payment Processor device it request information from the bank card, if the transaction is accepted or declined it is returned to the device and the device returns the transaction information to the POS Software and the Software decides what to do with the current sale on the POS System.
