blocking credit card types


N

Nicole

Anyone know how to totally block a credit card type? We don't take AMEX or
Discover, however new clerks etc. have taken them off and on and pos will
accept the transaction (but then it won't settle, get the 'technical error'
on the EDC report) Is there a way to block those cards completely so that
they won't tender at the point of sale?

Any help would be appreciated!

Create a separate tender type for each card that you do accept. Use the
Validation Mask property to set the accepted card values...

Validation Mask Settings:
Visa = 4*
MC = 5*
AMEX = 3*
Discover= 6*

If a cashier tries to enter an Amex card in the Visa Tender Type, they will
get a message saying "Invalid Card Number" because Amex starts with a "3",
but the Visa Tender Type only allows cards that start with "4"...

How would you handle closing the batch at the end of the day since you don't
know which transactions are for which cards since the CC# is masked. Is
there another way to determine this?

Eric,

The EDC report displays the tender type on it, just re-sort the list.
