STX Beacon: CCP: Setup Workers
Optional credit and debit/credit card payment processing for a Worker is managed via our integration with our preferred merchant services vendor. For information on the credit card merchant gateway or obtaining a new merchant account for a worker, please contact STX Software.
If the worker already has a merchant account with our preferred merchant service vendor, and you wish to process electronic payments for the worker, go to Setup > Setup Workers > Worker Details. Select the worker’s name and go to the Other tab.
You will need to select which type of merchant gateway account you are using for processing credit cards electronically through Beacon.
Payment Gateway: Use the drop-down menu to select the appropriate gateway for the worker’s merchant account:
In Store ID and Key: Enter the ID and Shared Secret obtained from the merchant gateway upon signing up for an account.
Online ID and Key: Enter the ID and Shared Secret obtained from the merchant gateway upon signing up for an account.
For testing purposes, check the Test checkbox to send credit card transactions to a test account, rather than to the worker’s account.
When you’re ready to have transactions posted to the worker’s account, be sure to remove the check on the Test checkbox. If the Test checkbox is checked, no deposits will be made for credit card transactions into the worker’s account.
There must be a ‘business’ merchant account established and the account information entered into Setup > Setup Ticket Preferences > POS before credit card transactions can be processed for a Worker.
When checking out a client, the ticket will display an option to select the appropriate merchant account for electronic payments. Select the merchant account prior to processing the credit card.
The Merchant Account drop-down menu displays on each ticket, regardless of the tab being viewed.
