To make a prepayment or non-cash settlement without actual cards at office canteens, resorts or hotels, you can use e-Wallets. For example, there are cases when parents don’t want to give the child cash for lunch in the cafeteria. Instead, they top up the e-Wallet at Poster to use this money to pay for lunch at school.
All you need to do is to enable e-Wallet, top up the customer’s account and accept the payment with e-Wallet.
☝️ Deposit accounts are available in Business and Pro pricing plans:
• in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Poland and Armenia you can top up a deposit account only with cash;
• in other countries you can top up your guest's account with cash or by a wire transfer.
To enable e-Wallet:
Open the tab Marketing → Customer groups in the management console.
Add bonus or discount customer group or click Edit next to the existing one.
Check Customers of this group can have e-Wallet balance.
☝️ By default the tax is not applied for topping up a deposit account.
e-Wallet top up
☝️ You can’t top up your e-Wallet from the customer card at the management console. To transfer the funds (cash or non-cash) to the customer’s e-Wallet, top up e-Wallet from the point of sale.
To top up e-Wallet:
Go to the Customer tab in the upper left-hand corner of the order window.
Select the customer from the list and click Top up in the e-Wallet balance block.
Enter the amount and click:
— Top up with cash and put cash into the cash drawer. Poster will add an income transaction to the cash shift;
— Top up with card and pay using payment terminal. After this, the transaction “e-Wallet top up” will appear automatically in the tab Finances → Transactions.
Use e-Wallet for order payment
If the customer topped up their account and wants to use it, accept the payment using e-Wallet.
To pay with e-Wallet:
Apply needed customer to the order.
Go to the Receipt tab and click Pay.
At the payment window choose Use e-Wallet.
☝️ If you delete receipt, which the customer paid with an e-Wallet, the written-off amount will be returned to his account.
