If you use LimeOrder Pos Software with one of the Payment Terminals that is integrated into the system, then you don’t need to enter the order amount in the payment terminal manually and the system will automatically send the order amount to that payment terminal and will print the payment receipt either on the payment terminal or on the printer that you usually print the sales receipt.

NOTE: If you have an integrated payment terminal, then you have to define “Credit & debit Cards” here in the Merchant Account and there is no need to define it in the “Cash & Card” menu.

Merchant Account

LimeOrder Point Of Sale Software for restaurant & retail is designed to work worldwide.

In most countries, the merchant selects only one acquirer and gets the Payment Terminal from that specific provider. Still, in some countries, the merchant may have few different payment terminals from different acquirers.

If you are dealing with only one acquirer, you have to define a general account here in the Merchant Account like “Card” or “Credit & Debit Card.” Still, if you have a different terminal brand from different companies, you have to define different Payment Terminals and their related Merchant Account.

Therefore you can define one merchant account and one payment terminal connected to that merchant account or define one merchant account and connect a few same model payment terminal to that account or in specific scenarios that you have different terminal provider, define different payment terminals and define separate merchant account for each of them.

Payment Terminal

For any acquirer’s terminal model, you have to define a new “Payment Terminal ” and connect it to the related Merchant Account as described below.

For instance, if you use “Ingenico 5000 Desk,” you have to define a Payment Terminal named “Ingenico 5000 Desk,” When defining it as a Payment Terminal, the system asks you the Merchant Account.

If you have only a bank account that all the received money from the acquirer will be transferred to that account, then defining a single Merchant Account is enough. Still, if you are in a country using multiple Terminal Brands, you must probably define separate Merchant Accounts and connect each Payment Terminal to its related Merchant Account.

Where to use:

After defining “Merchant Accounts” and “Payment Terminals,” you will see them in the payment form when placing an order.
