Logging on and Processing Transactions

Logging On

axept® PRO needs you to log in before you can process a transaction. This feature provides additional security, limiting some functions to users with the correct permission. Variable permissions will not have been set up unless you have specifically requested them however. Your user ID and password will have been emailed to you as part of your order, however you can contact us if you need to know them.

Processing Sales

Chip and Pin

note

The following flow assumes the card is 'captured' by inserting it and the terminal reading the chip. Some features, such as Cashback, are NOT available when processing via Contactless.

StepInstructionGuidance Image
1.Press the 'Sale' button to start the transaction. Alternatively, a transaction can be initiated by the insertion of a payment card into the Chip (ICC) card reader at the base of the terminal.
2.Enter the amount of the sale using the onscreen keypad. axept® PRO automatically adds the decimal point for you. Press the 'Done' button to continue.
3.If the cardholder’s card has previously been inserted, skip to step 4. Otherwise axept® PRO will prompt for the card to be presented.
4.Once the card is inserted axept® PRO will read the card. Please wait and do not remove the card whilst this is in progress.
5.If the cashback feature has been enabled and a supporting debit card is presented, axept® PRO will prompt for cashback.

If yes, press the YES button. If no press the NO button and skip to step 7.
6.If YES was pressed enter the amount of cashback required. Press the 'Done' button to continue.
7.On the Enter PIN screen pass the axept® PRO terminal to the cardholder and ask them to enter their PIN. Once the PIN has been entered the Green 'Return/Enter' button needs to be pressed.
8.axept® PRO will then begin processing the transaction.

This step involves communicating with the Card Issuer so should be monitored.
9.axept® PRO will confirm the result of the transaction.

Note that the amount of Cashback is reported to user in this case, as a reminder.
10.axept® PRO will then print the cardholder copy of the receipt and prompts the merchant to remove the cardholder copy of the receipt.

Press OK to continue..
11.axept® PRO then prints the merchant copy.

You should check your copy of the receipt to ensure the payment was authorised, in case you did not see the response on screen in step 9.
12.axept® PRO then asks for the card to be removed.
13.axept® PRO then returns to the main menu, ready for the next transaction.

Contactless

Contactless payments are started by pressing Sale as in the previous example. If the card is read however, the payment will complete automatically and all you will see is the outcome. There are no options or prompts to complete until the end when you are asked if you want to print the customer receipt. You should ask the customer this.

tip

Whilst Contactless is a very fast payment, it still needs to go online to check with the Cardholder's Issuer. You should not assume a Contactless transaction has been authorised until axept® PRO confirms this on screen and on your receipt.

It is possible that a Card Issuer will ask for the cardholder to complete the payment by Chip and Pin instead of Contactless. This is normal and is designed to protect you from fraud, by ensuring the Customer is Authentic.

Processing Refunds

note

This guide shows you how complete a Chip & Pin Refund. Not all cards support Contactless Refunds, and you may need to ask the cardholder to insert their card. axept® PRO will prompt this if this is the case.
