Irrespective of how your customer pays, you can now record all your sales in your Yoco Point of Sale.

Perfect for service businesses from small cafe’s to hairdressers, you can either add tip in-app while recording a transaction or prompt your customer to add a tip on your card machine. We’ve seen this feature increase staff tips by up to 200%. It works best when paired with the Yoco Retail Cradle, as seen below.
How to configure tipping
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 Reader sleeping?
One way is to keep it in a Desk or Retail Cradle and now you are also able to ensure card reader stays connected to your smart device. When you’re busy, to make sure you can process transactions as quickly as possible, select ‘Stay connected’ from your Card Reader settings. It will use more battery but will be better when you’re very busy period.
