Overview: Manager Swipe Cards can be used for PIN entry rather than tapping in the PIN via touchscreen. The Swipe Card only works for Managers/Admins, and its most common used for Manager approval for voids, refunds, or transferring orders.
Step 1: Printing Access Cards
You will need to work with a plastic card provider to create your Swipe Cards. If you do not have an existing relationship with a provider, please contact our support team for our preferred vendor list.
Each card must conform to the following specifications:
- Track 2 encoding (unencrypted)
- 6-digit number
- PIN number printed on back (optional)
- You can choose to design your card any way you wish.
Step 2: Ensure you have a Swipe capable reader
Step 3: Enabling secondary swiper on the register
Important: Enabling this feature may activate your reader for long periods of time. Make sure your iPad is connected to a power source to prevent battery drain.
a. To enable a secondary swiper on your iPad, navigate to Back Office > Settings > General. Under the Register section, toggle ON "Allow swipe for PIN entry."
b. Next, tap on "Card Reader for Gift/Loyalty/ID cards"
c. Choose the appropriate type of swiper from the list.
Note: For "aDynamo" swipers, select Magtek uDynamo (Audio Jack).
Step 4: Associate card with employee
a. To associate a card with an employee, navigate to their Employee profile in Back Office > Employees.
b. Select the employee to bring up their employee detail screen.
c. If you have correctly set up your swiper, you will see "Swipe Card" below the PIN entry field.
d. Swipe the card to associate the card with that employee.
Step 5: (optional) Require swipe as input
If you want your employees to only use their access cards, select the "Require Swipe for PIN" permission on their employee profile.
