Here's a step-by-step guide for restaurants who need to learn how tipping on contactless payment terminals works.
Wait staff enters the total amount of the purchase.
The customer is prompted to press “Ok” to proceed with the purchase.
Customer presses “Ok” to agree to the purchase total.
Customer is asked if they would like to add a tip to the total purchase amount.
Step Five – Basic Model:
Customer is prompted to enter the desired tip amount using the number pad.
Step Five – Enhanced Model:
Customer is prompted to select from provided tip values (percentage and value) or to select “Other” to manually enter tip.
The pay terminal updates the purchase total to include the chosen tip amount and prompts the customer to approve the total by pressing “Ok.”
To begin a contactless payment, the customer must first tap or wave their preferred payment method near the pay terminal.
The customer is then prompted to return the pay terminal to the wait staff/clerk/merchant to enter the purchase amount.
Upon approval, the transaction confirmation number and “Approved” is shown on the screen and the receipt is printed.
