General POS settings such as settings for purchases, registration and redeeming benefits can be configured from Operation > Settings > General POS Settings.
NOTE: Settings related to points or credit can be configured from Point/Credit Settings.
|Api Key (given by Como)
|This is the API key that the POS needs in order to send the calls to us.
|Save Purchase Options
|Select which purchases to save based on which type of customer is identified on the purchase. For example, we can receive purchases (from the SubmitPurchase call) in the following ways:
|Allow General Membership Submission
|This field is not currently in use.
|Allow Multiple Purchases for POS Identifiers
|To allow multiple purchases with the same transaction ID, branch ID, POS ID and date/time, select Yes.
|Automation Delay Time (Milliseconds)
|Number of milliseconds that an automation is delayed after the Submit Purchase call. This creates a cancellation window to allow purchases to be cancelled during this time using Cancel Purchase. NOTE: The delay shouldn't be too long (we recommend no more than 5 mins), however a delay is useful in case of immediate refunds or changes in the purchase.
|Allow Cancel Purchase Outside Cancellation Window
The cancellation window is created by delaying the automation triggered when a member makes a purchase (Submit Purchase). If a purchase is cancelled during this window (using Cancel Purchase), the automation won't be triggered at all.
Purchases can also be cancelled/refunded using Cancel Purchase outside of the cancellation window (after the purchase is analyzed and automations are triggered). Once we receive the Cancel Purchase call, we turn it into a Submit Purchase call with negative amounts and the corresponding points are taken away.

|Registration Purchase Automation Delay (Milliseconds)
Customers who purchase a membership at the POS can be sent a joining/coupon code to enter into the app to register. To allow members to accumulate points or other rewards for this purchase (which may also include other items), you need to delay the automation to make sure they first register before the automation is triggered (since only members can accumulate).
Select how many milliseconds to delay the automation after they're sent the joining/coupon code to register.
|Code Type (to send by SMS)
|Select whether to send members who purchased a membership at the POS a joining code or coupon in an SMS.
To learn more, click here.
|Membership Item Code
|Membership item code from the POS
|Code Bulk Tag
|Code bulk tag you added when creating your bulk of joining or coupon codes. Codes from this bulk are sent by SMS to members who purchase the associated membership item
|Text Message (SMS) Content
|Content of the text message (SMS) you wish to send customers when sending them the codes (you can also include a generic link to download the app)
|Automark Redeem Codes as Used
|To use the Redeem log to mark redeem codes as used (instead of Submit Purchase), select Yes.
|Redeem Code Lock Time (Seconds)
|After a redeem code is entered into the POS, it’s locked for a certain period of time so that it cannot be used by another POS (to prevent members from redeeming a gift multiple times).
Select whether to apply the discount of a smart gift/club deal to:
For example, suppose members who buy two coffees get the cheapest for free and a member bought three coffees with the following prices: $4, $3 and $2. There are two ways to calculate the discount:
|Discount Rounding Type
|Select how to round discounts that members receive on their purchases at the POS—through gift vouchers or club deals.
|Cancel Member Benefits Item Code
|If the item code appears in the purchase, club deals won't be activated.
|Allow Membership Operations
|Only used when POS has its own identifier
NOTE: This is not relevant for most businesses.
|Membership Views (ex: receipt notes) - JSON Format
|For example, you can add a note in JSON format to be printed on the receipt.
|Some POS protocols require encryption keys.
