Use the Payment tab to configure payment-related elements for the site. 

Card Processors 

Configure credit card, gift card and loyalty card processors. The configuration for each processor will differ slightly. See Processor Configurations below for more information. 

Loyalty card processors: A default selection is required. If only one loyalty processor is configured for a site, it becomes the default. If more than one loyalty processor is configured for a site, a selection is required.

  • Select the desired card processor from the list:


  • An Add - Card Processor form will be presented. (Form fields will differ by processor selected.) 


Edit a card processor

  • The Edit - Card Processor form will display. Make changes as needed.
  • Click Save to save changes or Cancel to discard changes. 

Gift Card BIN Range

Gift card and loyalty card processors require a Gift Card BIN (Bank Identification Number) range.

  • Each payment processor must have a unique BIN range; BIN ranges cannot be duplicated between different processors
  • A single payment processor can have more than one BIN range

To add a gift card BIN range:

  • Click Add BIN Range
    • Gift card BIN ranges must be between 6 and 21 digits.
  • Enter a low range, high range and the total number of digits for the gift card using the simple editor. ("Edit Regular Expression" can be used by advanced users.)

You may contact your NorthStar representative to enable this feature toggle for your account if desired.

Offline Credit Card Settings




PAX Devices

The offline settings in ECM do not apply to PAX devices. PAX devices are configured in the PAXStore to use Store and Forward to hold transactions within the PAX device if the system goes offline. 


If Order Entry is unable to contact the credit card processor, Offline Credit Card Settings allow Order Entry to store the transaction to be processed when the site is online again. This allows you to continue accepting credit cards, but introduces the risk of accepting a card that is later declined.

  • Enable Offline Transactions - Select to enable offline transactions and store transactions when the system is offline. 
  • Max Dollar Amount - The maximum allowable dollar amount of offline transactions allowed to accumulate. Once this limit is reached, Order Entry will not accept credit cards until existing offline transactions can be processed.
  • Max Payment Amount - The maximum allowable payment amount of a single offline transaction.
  • Max Transaction Count - The maximum number of offline transactions allowed to accumulate for a day. Once this limit is reached, Order Entry will not accept credit cards until existing offline transactions can be processed.

Application

When the payment device loses connectivity, an error message will be shown: An error occurred while processing your payment. Please try again.
