About the Payment Modes

POS Terminal application supports the following forms of the payment:

This topic explains how to use these methods of payments.

Open the Order Payment Screen

An order payment is a final step you should perform before your customer receives the order items. 

The way in which you can open the order payment screen depends on the order type.

Payment of On Table and Take out Orders

For these types of orders, the order payment screen opens in one of the following scenarios:

  • You have added all items to the order and tapped Checkout – for details, see Add Items.
  • You selected the order from the Active Orders screen and tapped the Checkout icon on the bottom menu bar – for details, see Active Orders.

A payment page is similar to the following screen:

Payments of Delivery Orders

For delivery orders, the customer pays their order using Mobile application, or a deliveryman receives a payment. In the latter case, you should confirm that payment using the Money Drop button on the Orders Delivered tab. For details, see Delivery.

Pay in Cash

If your customer prefers a payment in cash, on the payment screen, do the following:

  1. Tap the Cash button.
  2. In the Received text box, specify the money amount you have received from the customer.
  3. Optionally, specify the tips amount in the Tips text box.
  4. Optionally, tap Discount to apply the discount programs and actions to this order.
  5. Optionally, tap Taxes* to exclude taxes from total price of this order.
  6. Tap Pay.

NOTE*:  To use the  Taxes button, ensure that the Show Tax Exempt setting is enabled in General settings of POS Terminal apps.

NOTE: After each payment in cash, Bleu updates in real-time the balance for the cash drawer.

Pay with Banking Card

To perform a payment with banking card

  1. On the payment screen, tap the Card button.
  2. Perform Steps 2 to 5 from the payment procedure described in Pay in Cash earlier.
  3. Insert the customer banking card in a pinpad connected to this terminal and await for the bank to approve this transaction.
  4. Tap Pay.

NOTE: POS Terminal application allows you to pay orders with banking cards without a pinpad connected to the terminal. For example, this mode is useful in the following scenario: a waiter can pay a dine-in order using a portable pinpad device. 

To enable this mode, turn on the Allow Card Payment without Pinpad toggle button in General Settings.

Mobile Payments

The customers that use Customer Mobile Application can register their banking card for online payments of orders. To perform the mobile payment, you should add the customer to the order (see Add Customer for more information).

To perform mobile payment

  • On the payment screen, tap Mobile.
    POS terminal displays the Payment processing window:

On the customer Mobile application, a payment confirmation window will pop up. The customer can review the receipt, then confirm the payment. After this, the Payment processing window closes, and the order payment status is changed to “Paid.”

NOTE:  At any time, you can tap the OK button to close the Payment processing  window, and carry on serving the next customer. For confirmation of that previous payment, just look for the green status indicator on the Active Orders list. When you open up the order later, it will show the status as ‘paid’.

Payments of Custom Type

You can define custom types of payment. Those payments are used when a customer makes a delivery order via an external company (such as a delivery service company). The company takes the order at your store and delivers it to the customer’s address.

To use this method of payment, do the following:

  1. On the payment screen, tap Custom type.
    POS Terminal displays the following screen where you can select a custom type of payment:
  2. On this screen, to pay an order, select a custom payment type (such as Grubhub), and then click Pay.

IMPORTANT: To pay an order with loyalty points, you should add a customer to that order.

To pay an order with loyalty points

  2. If you have not added a customer to this order, in the Search Customer text box, type in several digits of a customer phone number, and then select the customer or add new customer (for details, see add a customer).

  3. Specify the number of points to use for this payment in Points to use, and then click Apply.
