POS Lavu allows for credit card integration via compatible Gateways. However, if one is not available in your area, or if you use a third party terminal, the Credit Card information can be tracked in one of two additional methods;

  • Prompt your Staff to enter the CC type information

  • Create a separate Payment type for that card type.

To prompt your staff to enter the CC information, which will appear on the Transaction report and be included as a separate payment type in the End of Day report.
