Discounts and Split bills

It is now also incredibly easy to add discounts to bills and products and process split bills. Split bills are useful for when your customer wants to pay a bit with card and a bit with cash, or when customers want to share the bill.

Want to stop your card machine sleeping?

One way is to keep it in a Desk or Retail Cradle and now you are also able to ensure card machine stays connected to your smart device.

It will use more battery but will be better when you’re very busy period.
