The possibilities of the payment dialogue in Dotypos are wide. With appropriate settings, you determine what should happen after the bill is issued. If you want to save time as much as possible, you can simply register the received amount by tapping on the displayed values of banknotes and coins or add quick actions to the bottom panel. Any tip can also be entered before final payment. In the case of supported payment terminals, you can leave the tip entirely up to the customer. When paying by card, the terminal itself offers to enter the tip. The most common scenarios for using the payment dialog are shown in this chapter. The individual scenarios (settings) listed here can of course be combined.
The procedures described below refer to the tab, which can be found by opening the side menu under Application Settings. It is the options in Payment Settings that affect the behaviour of the payment dialog.
You can enter the amount received simply by selecting specific notes and coins. This is much faster than typing the amount on the numeric keypad. The following settings will therefore display a list of defined notes and coins in the payment dialog, which the operator will use to register the payment.
Simply add a step to the payment dialog to enter a tip. Based on the amount to be paid, the cash register will display tip suggestions. Of course, you can also enter your own tip amount or have the customer enter the tip directly on the payment terminal when paying by card. Tipping can be limited to specific payment methods.
You usually enter the tip amount before you pay and close the order. However, you can also enter a tip after the order has been paid and closed. Simply open your account in History by tapping and using the button to enter the tip amount. This will be added to the account after the fact.
By default, a payment dialog with a choice of payment method is displayed after the invoice is issued. This step can be skipped if you add the selected payment methods to the bottom panel of the main screen. In addition to payment methods, other actions can be added to the panel, such as selecting a customer and applying a discount. In combination with cash received or tip recording turned off, this can suppress the payment dialog altogether.
Once you tap on the added payment method (in the picture above we added cash and card payment), the payment dialog will open only if you have the receipt or tip recording enabled. Otherwise, the payment will always be recorded directly, the order paid and closed. However, you can optionally open the payment dialog by tapping the three dots icon and selecting a payment method that you have not added in the bottom panel.
You can select a customer or enter a discount at any time before or after adding items to your order. In this case, the discount is always a percentage and is applied to each item in the order.
In addition to the domestic currency, Dotypos supports a number of other currencies. So if you accept payment in another currency, simply add it to your payment dialog as another separate payment method. For each additional currency, you specify the exchange rate, with the cashier offering the ČNB rate.
