Important Security Notice
Introduction and Scope
The Payment Card Industry Payment Application Data Security Standard (PCI PA-DSS) is
comprised of fourteen requirements that support the Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), which was
founded by the major card brands in June 2005, set these requirements in order to
protect cardholder payment information. The standards set by the council are enforced
by the payment card companies who established the Council: American Express, Discover
Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa, Inc.
PCI PA-DSS is an evolution of Visa’s Payment Application Best Practices (PABP), which was
based on the Visa Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP). In addition to Visa
CISP, PCI DSS combines American Express’ Data Security Operating Policy (DSOP),
Discover Network’s Information Security and Compliance (DISC), and MasterCard’s Site
Data Protection (SDP) into a single comprehensive set of security standards. The
transition to PCI PA-DSS was announced in April 2008. In early October 2008, PCI PA-DSS
Version 1.2 was released to align with the PCI DSS Version 1.2, which was released on
October 1, 2008.
Applicability
The PCI PA-DSS applies to any payment application that stores, processes, or transmits
cardholder data as part of authorization or settlement, unless the application would fall
under the merchant’s PCI DSS validation. If your application runs on Windows XP, you are
required to turn off Windows XP System Restore Points. PAYware PC, PAYware Transact,
PAYware SIM, and PCCharge (collectively the “PAYware NA Payment Applications”) were
developed by VeriFone for use by third parties, and therefore are subject to PA-DSS
validation. PAYware Connect (also included under “PAYware NA Payment Applications”)
falls under PCI DSS. See the PCI PA-DSS Program Guide to determine if PCI PA-DSS
validation is required for any other payment applications used at the merchant location.
It is important to note that PA-DSS validated payment applications alone do not
guarantee PCI DSS compliance. The validated payment application must be implemented
in a PCI DSS compliant environment.
Distribution and Updates
This guide will be provided to VeriFone’s customers including processors, resellers, ISOs,
and integrators along with the PAYware NA payment applications. It is the responsibility
of these parties to ensure the information contained in this guide is passed on to their
customers (the merchant), in order to illustrate the requirements for complying with PCI
DSS.
Additional information about PA-DSS and VeriFone’s PA-DSS Training can be found on our
website at www.verifone.com/padss.
10
What Does PA-DSS Mean to You?
VeriFone submits its PAYware NA payment applications to an annual PA-DSS audit in order
to maintain PA-DSS validation. In addition, if any major version change is made in any
PAYware NA payment applications, VeriFone submits that application for a full PA-DSS
audit again. An example of a major version change would be PCCharge 5.8 moving to
PCCharge 5.9. For minor changes, such as PCCharge 5.8.1 to 5.8.2, an attestation form
for minor change revisions is required. These minor change revisions are submitted to
VeriFone’s Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), which creates a report to submit to PCI SSC.
All validated applications are listed on the PCI SSC web site at
https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/vpa/
The following table provides opening points to cover in any discussion with merchants on
data storage and why a merchant should use PAYware PC, PAYware Transact, PAYware
SIM, PAYware Connect, or PCCharge to assist in maintaining PCI-DSS compliance.

- These data elements must be protected if stored in conjunction with the PAN. This
protection should be per PCI DSS requirements for general protection of the cardholder
environment. Additionally, other legislation (for example, related to consumer personal
data protection, privacy, identity theft, or data security) may require specific
protection of this data, or proper disclosure of a company's practices if consumerrelated personal data is being collected during the course of business. PCI DSS, however,
does not apply if PANs are not stored, processed, or transmitted.

- Do not store sensitive authentication data after authorization (even if encrypted).
3
- Full track data from the magnetic stripe, magnetic-stripe image on the chip, or
elsewhere.
Third Party Applications
A PAYware NA payment application validation does not extend to any external third party
application that has integrated such PAYware NA payment application as the payment
engine. The end-to-end transaction process, beginning with entry into the third party
application until the response from the payment engine is returned, must meet the same
level of compliance. In order to claim the third party application is end-to-end
compliant, the application would need to be submitted to a QSA for a full PA-DSS audit.
The use of a PAYware NA payment application also does not exempt a third party
integrator’s application from a PA-DSS audit. The end user and/or P.O.S. developer can
integrate and be compliant in the processing portion of a payment transaction. A brief
review (given below) of the PA-DSS environmental variables that impact the end user
merchant can help the end user merchant obtain and/or maintain PA-DSS compliance.
11
Environmental variables that could prevent passing an audit include without limitation
issues involving a secure network connection(s), end user setup location security, users,
logging and assigned rights.
PA-DSS Guidelines
The following PA-DSS Guidelines are being provided by VeriFone as a convenience to our
customers. These PA-DSS Guidelines were copied from PCI DSS Program Guide as of March
31, 2009. Customers should not rely on these PA-DSS Guidelines, but should instead
always refer to the most recent PCI DSS Program Guide published by PCI SSC.
1. Sensitive Date Storage Guidelines.
Do not retain full magnetic stripe, card validation code or value (CAV2, CID, CVC2,
CVV2), or PIN block data.
1.1 Do not store sensitive authentication data after authorization (even if
encrypted):
● Sensitive authentication data includes the data as cited in the following
Requirements 1.1.1 through 1.1.3. PCI Data Security Standard Requirement
3.2
Note: By prohibiting storage of sensitive authentication data after authorization,
the assumption is that the transaction has completed the authorization process and
the customer has received the final transaction approval. After authorization has
completed, this sensitive authentication data cannot be stored.
1.1.1 After authorization, do not store the full contents of any track from the
magnetic stripe (located on the back of a card, contained in a chip, or elsewhere).
This data is alternatively called full track, track, track 1, track 2, and magneticstripe data.
In the normal course of business, the following data elements from the magnetic
stripe may need to be retained:
● The accountholder’s name,
● Primary account number (PAN),
● Expiration date, and
● Service code
● To minimize risk, store only those data elements needed for business.
Note: See PCI DSS and PA-DSS Glossary of Terms, Abbreviations, and Acronyms for
additional information. PCI Data Security Standard Requirement 3.2.1
1.1.2 After authorization, do not store the card-validation value or code (three-digit
or four-digit number printed on the front or back of a payment card) used to verify
card-not-present transactions.
Note: See PCI DSS and PA-DSS Glossary of Terms, Abbreviations, and Acronyms for
additional information. PCI Data Security Standard Requirement 3.2.2
1.1.3 After authorization, do not store the personal identification number (PIN) or
the encrypted PIN block.
Note: See PCI DSS and PA-DSS Glossary of Terms, Abbreviations, and Acronyms for
additional information. PCI Data Security Standard Requirement 3.2.3
12
1.1.4 Securely delete any magnetic stripe data, card validation values or codes, and
PINs or PIN block data stored by previous versions of the payment application, in
accordance with industry-accepted standards for secure deletion, as defined, for
example by the list of approved products maintained by the National Security
Agency, or by other State or National standards or regulations. PCI Data Security
Standard Requirement 3.2
Note: This requirement only applies if previous versions of the payment application
stored sensitive authentication data.
1.1.5 Securely delete any sensitive authentication data (pre-authorization data)
used for debugging or troubleshooting purposes from log files, debugging files, and
other data sources received from customers, to ensure that magnetic stripe data,
card validation codes or values, and PINs or PIN block data are not stored on
software vendor systems. These data sources must be collected in limited amounts
and only when necessary to resolve a problem, encrypted while stored, and deleted
immediately after use. PCI Data Security Standard Requirement 3.2
2. Protect stored cardholder data
2.1 Software vendor must provide guidance to customers regarding purging of
cardholder data after expiration of customer-defined retention period. PCI Data
Security Standard Requirement 3.1
2.2 Mask PAN when displayed (the first six and last four digits are the maximum
number of digits to be displayed).
Notes:
• This requirement does not apply to those employees and other parties
with a legitimate business need to see full PAN;
• This requirement does not supersede stricter requirements in place for
displays of cardholder data—for example, for point-of-sale (POS) receipts.
PCI Data Security Standard Requirement 3.3
2.3 Render PAN, at a minimum, unreadable anywhere it is stored, (including data
on portable digital media, backup media, and in logs) by using any of the following
approaches:
• One-way hashes based on strong cryptography
• Truncation
• Index tokens and pads (pads must be securely stored)
• Strong cryptography with associated key management processes and
procedures.
The MINIMUM account information that must be rendered unreadable is the PAN. PCI
Data Security Standard Requirement 3.4
The PAN must be rendered unreadable anywhere it is stored, even outside the
payment application.
Note: “Strong cryptography” is defined in the PCI DSS and PA-DSS Glossary of Terms,
Abbreviations, and Acronyms.
13
2.4 If disk encryption is used (rather than file- or column-level database
encryption), logical access must be managed independently of native operating
system access control mechanisms (for example, by not using local user account
databases). Decryption keys must not be tied to user accounts. PCI Data Security
Standard Requirement 3.4.1

Installation

Simple Explanation:
(
Note:
Basically, one computer is used as the "Server".
This computer would have the standard software installation. The computers
that would connect to this Server would have a copy of the "Client" software
installed. These Client machines would then accept transactions and pass
them to the Server location to be processed. The Server does not have to be
the actual network server, but it must be able to connect to your credit card
processing company (via modem, TCP/IP, etc.).
As with most other software installations, you should be logged into
Windows as a user with administrator access in order to install or launch
PCCharge. If you do not have administrator access to Windows (or are not
sure of what that means), contact one of the following:
•
•
Whoever maintains your business' computer systems
The technical support department of your computer's manufacturer.
Before you get started, you'll need some information to set up this Client location:
•
•
•
The name of the payment processing company in the Server location that will
be accessed from this Client location
The merchant account numbers for that payment processing company
The network address of the PCCharge Server location
Once you've obtained this information and have it ready, complete the following steps.
1.
Insert the PCCharge Installation CD into the CD-ROM drive of your computer. The
PCCharge Installation Menu should automatically appear.

33
Files\
(
2.
Note:
The example shows a path where Client is installed on the same
machine as the server application. If the Client is not on the same machine as
the server application, the installer will need to browse across the network to
the machine that has the server application installed or use a UNC path. The
installation directory of the server application MUST be shared out so that the
Client can recognize it.
Click the Configure IP Settings button to access the Integration Configuration
screen. As of 5-8-0, Client uses a Secure TCP/IP (SSL) connection to send
transactions to the server. Not only do merchants have to set the path to the server
application (so that they can run reports or access the customer database), but
they need to enter the IP Address (Default = 127.0.0.1) of the server machine and
the Listen On Port (Default = 31405) used for the secure TCP/IP connection.
(
Note:
The default address will only work if the Client and the server
application are installed on the same machine. Otherwise, the installer will
need to know the address of the server machine.
From the Certificate section, the merchant can select the Store Location and Store
Name from the combo box. Click on Display Store to list all of the certificates
under the selected location. The certificate details can be viewed by clicking the
View Details button.

You now have the option to uncheck the box labeled Print Receipts for PreAuths/Books. Pre-auth and book transactions "set money aside" on a customer's
credit card without actually initiating the transfer of funds from the customer's
account to your account. These transaction types are often used when the exact
final amount of the transaction is not known. Unchecking this box makes PCCharge
not print out receipts for these two transaction types.
5.
If you want the credit card number on all receipts to be "masked" (covered with X's),
put a check in the box labeled Secure Receipts.
6.
Set your Margins. The values for the margins are displayed in twips. There are 1440
twips in an inch, so the default setting of 720 twips is equal to one-half of an inch.
The margin settings allow you to place the receipt information in different areas of
the page to permit the use of preprinted invoices. We recommend that you leave
these settings at their default values. You should wait until you see your printed
receipts before you modify these values.
7.
Click the Comments button. Client will display the Receipt Comment Setup
window. This feature allows you to include a customized message at the end of your
receipt. The comment section can be up to five (5) lines long, with each line being
no longer than forty (40) characters. Click OK to save your comments.
8.
Click the OK button. Client will display its main window. Proceed to the next
section, Client Report Printer Setup.

Client Report Printer Setup

Simple Explanation: This window allows you to set up a standard
Windows-compatible printer to print reports from this Client location. This
window is separate from the Report Printer Setup window at the Server
location. You may choose to set up (or not set up) report printing from either
location (Server and/or Client).
If you do not have a printer or you simply do not want to print receipts, leave
this window set to its default settings (as shown below), click OK, and skip
ahead to the section Client Card Reader Setup (see page 46).

Client Card Reader Setup

Simple Explanation: This window allows you to set up a card reader to
"swipe" cards--that is, to read the data stored on the card's magnetic strip by
manually passing it through the card reader. This window is separate from the
Card Reader Setup window at the Server location. You may choose to set up
(or not set up) this device at either location (Server and/or Client).
If you do not have a card reader installed on your machine, leave this window
set to its default setting (as shown below, with Keyboard Wedge selected)
and skip ahead to the next section, Client PIN Pad Setup (see page 51).
(
Note: If you are processing debit card transactions, you'll need to have a
card reader and PIN Pad connected to your computer.
(
Note: You will be required to log in as System, Manager, or a Cashier with
Hardware Configuration privileges in order to set up this feature.
1.
Click Setup on the menu bar. Click the Devices option. Click the Card Reader
option.
2.
Click the small drop-down arrow button (to the right of the Card Reader field).
Select the type of card reader that you'll use with Client.
•
Serial Reader -- A serial card reader is connected to your computer's COM port
by a cord that ends in a 9-pin plug.
•
Keyboard Wedge -- A keyboard wedge reader is usually a card swipe device
that connects in between your keyboard and your computer. However, the
setting Keyboard Wedge also refers to keyboards with built-in card readers.
46
3.
4.
If you've selected Keyboard Wedge, complete the following steps:
•
Notice the default Time Out value (4 seconds). This value determines how long
Client waits for a card swipe to be completed. You should not change the
default value unless you are experiencing difficulties with your device.
•
Click OK to save these settings and return to the main Client window. You may
now perform a test transaction using your device (see page 55), or you may
proceed to the next section, Client PIN Pad Setup (see page 51).
If you've selected Serial Reader, Review the Tested Card Readers table (at the end
of this Card Reader Setup section) to determine if there are any special settings
recommended for your card reader. Next, complete the following steps:
•
Select the baud appropriate for your serial card reader (the default value is
9600). This information should be provided by your device's documentation.
•
Select the parity that the serial card reader uses. This information should be
provided by your device's documentation.
•
Click the small drop-down arrow button (to the right of the Com Port field).
Select the COM port of the serial card reader that you'll use with Client. Most
users can select Port(Com1), but some users may have plugged the device into
port 2 and should select Port(Com2).
•
Select the data bits setting appropriate for your serial card reader (the default
value is 8). This information should be provided by your device's
documentation.
•
Click OK to save these settings and return to the main Client window. You may
now perform a test transaction using your device (see page 55), or you may
proceed to the next section, Client PIN Pad Setup (see page 51).

Performing Test Transactions

Simple Explanation: These test transactions will help you to determine
if your modem is set up properly and working with your payment processing
company. Since these test transactions will be performed using a live credit
card number, actual funds will be transferred to and from your account. If
you get an appropriate response from these transactions (as described
below), you'll be ready to begin processing "live" transactions using PCCharge.
(
Note: The copy of PCCharge Pro/Payment Server at the Server location must
be running and functioning correctly in order to process the transactions sent
from PCCharge Client.
1.
Client should be displaying the Credit Card Sale window. It will look similar to the
window displayed below, but will may vary slightly from what you see in your copy
of Client (since different credit card processing companies offer different abilities).
56
2.
You'll need a credit card with an active account (use one that has adequate funds
for testing purposes). We suggest that you use your own credit card, since you'll be
transferring funds from that card's account to your business' merchant account.
Enter the credit card's number into the Credit Card Number field. Make sure that
you enter the number without spaces or dashes.
3.
Click in the white space next to the words Card Member and type in the cardholder
name exactly as show on the credit card. Look at the Card Issuer field. It should
now display the type of card being processed (VISA, MC, DISC, etc.). If UnKn is
displayed, it means that the card number you've entered is incorrect and that you'll
need to re-enter it. After you've re-entered it, click in the white space next to the
words Card Member. PCCharge should display the correct card type in the Card
Issuer field.
4.
Enter the card's four-digit expiration date into the Exp. Date (MMYY) field without
using spaces or dashes.
5.
Enter the number 1 into the Amount field without a dollar sign or a decimal point.
Client will automatically recognize 1 as one dollar. Click the Process button.
6.
Client may ask if the customer's card is present. Click Yes. You may be asked if you
want to enter a ticket number. Click No. Finally, Client may ask if you want to
enter CPS qualifiers (AVS information). Click No.
/
7.
Technical Details: Client is asking if the card is present to
determine if you can provide the CVV2/CVC2 number shown on the back
of the card, which would help you to obtain better per-transaction rates.
You would normally provide the ticket number and CPS qualifiers (AVS
information) during a "live" transaction to obtain better per-transaction
rates.
Watch the status window near the bottom-left of the Client main window. This will
display the status of the transaction being processed. Client will make two attempts
to contact the processing company and make a transaction request. Once you've
received a Result for the transaction, compare it to the four possible scenarios
listed below.
•
If the processing company is contacted and the transaction is authorized,
Client will display a Result of CAPTURED and some other information related
to that transaction. If you receive a Result of CAPTURED, proceed to step 9.
•
If the processing company is contacted and the transaction is not authorized,
Client will display a Result of NOT CAPTURED and a Response indicating the
reason for the transaction was not captured. This error message may vary, but
some of the likely possibilities are shown below. These indicate that you've
successfully processed a test transaction, even though the response shows that
the transaction was not authorized. If you receive a Result of NOT CAPTURED
and one of these responses, proceed to step 13.
Example Responses: Declined, Lost Card, Stolen Card, Hold-Call,
Call for Auth, Pick Up Card
57
•
If neither attempt at contacting the processing is successful, Client will display
Result of NOT CAPTURED and a communications-related error message for a
Response. This error message may vary, but some of the likely possibilities are
shown below. If you receive a communications-related error message for a
Response, investigate the Server location.
Example Responses: Port Access Error, No Carrier, No Dial Tone,
No Answer, Connect Failure, Com Error
•
8.
If you received some other error message, you will need to contact Technical
Support at (877) 659-8981.
Since you've received a Result of CAPTURED, you know that the Client location is
properly communicating with the Server location. Click OK on the Result window.
(
Note:
This means that $1.00 from the credit card has been reserved or
"put on hold". This step in transaction processing is called
"authorization". The next step in transaction processing is called
"settlement".
Settlement is when your payment processing company instructs your
business' bank and the cardholder's bank to initiate the transfer of
authorized transaction funds. For some processing companies, this
happens automatically. For others, it must be manually initiated. In
either case, settlement is a HIGHLY IMPORTANT step in payment
processing. During "live" processing, you will not receive your funds
unless your authorizations are settled. The following steps will take you
through settlement of your test transaction.
9.
Contact the administrator of the PCCharge Server location. Ask the administrator to
Void the test transaction you just processed (so that no funds are deducted from the
card you used).
10. Now that you've successfully processed a test transaction, you may begin processing
live transactions. Continue on to the next section, User's Guide, to learn how to use
the functionality of Client.
(
Note:
If you think that your account is set up to process other credit card
types (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, etc.), you may also perform
test transactions using those credit card types. To test a different credit card
type, just repeat steps 1-13 (using the new card type).
58

options accessible in Client.

first when the software is started. You can access any function of the software from the
Main Window.
(
Note: Your Main Window may look slightly different, depending on which
processing company you're using.
Menu Bar -- (Top of the main window) -- The menu bar is a generic Windows-based menu
system. The menu bar allows you to access every feature of Client.
Icon Bar -- (Top of the main window) -- The Icon Bar allows you to access six of the main
functions of the software: credit card processing, debit card processing, check
processing, gift card processing, cashier log on/off, the customer database, and the help
file. Simply click the appropriate icon to access the desired function.
60
Action Selector Row -- The Action Selector Row allows you to select the type of
transaction to be performed. As you access different functions of the software, the
Action Selector Row changes. The Action Row displays all types of actions that can be
performed using the currently selected processor and processing function (Example:
Functions available when processing credit card transactions are not all available when
processing debit card transactions).
Active Company Display -- (Bottom-middle of the main window) -- This drop-down box
displays the currently selected merchant account number and the company name
associated with that account. Whatever account is shown here will be used to process all
credit card transactions performed from the Credit Card Transactions window.
61
Processing Transactions
Client was designed to process four types of transactions:
•
Credit Card Transactions
•
Debit Card Transactions
•
Check Services Transactions
•
Gift Card Transactions
Before trying to process any transactions, make sure you have followed all the steps in
the Setup Wizard section of this documentation (see page 31). Next, make sure that the
Server location is running.
The following sections give specific information on processing each of the four
transaction types available in Client.
62
Credit Card Transactions
Using Credit Card Processing
(
Note: The following instructions describe a standard Sale transaction. For
information on other transaction types, consult the section Credit Card
Transaction Types (see page 66).
From the main Client window (see page 60), click the Credit icon to access the Credit
Card Transaction window. Or, click Transactions on the menu bar, and then click the
Credit Card option.
(
Note: If you are using a PIN pad device with PCCharge, you must click the
Credit icon before you can swipe a credit card through your PIN pad (even if
the Credit Card window is already onscreen). This will activate the magnetic
strip reader and make it ready for use.
63
1.
From the Action Selector Row, select the desired transaction type (Sale, Credit,
etc.).
2.
In a RETAIL environment: Swipe the credit card through your card reader. If the
card is swiped, the credit card number, card member, and expiration date are
immediately masked and X’s will be displayed for those fields, as in the example
above. The mouse-over hover tooltip will show the first two digits, masking X’s, and
the last four digits of the card number.If a card reader is not available, type in the
Credit Card Number and Exp. Date.
3.
In a NON-RETAIL environment: Type in the Credit Card Number and Exp. Date.
Client will display the Card Issuer (VISA, DISC, AMEX, etc.).
4.
Enter the dollar Amount of the transaction.
5.
Enter your invoice number (or some internal reference number) in the Ticket
Number field. This field is required for some processing companies (check your
processor's information in the PCCharge Appendix).
6.
If you are in a non-retail environment (or are manually entering transactions in a
retail environment), type in the cardholder's Street address and Zip code. This
information is optional with most payment processing companies, but you'll usually
get a better per-transaction rate if you supply it.
7.
Enter the Card Verification Value if the card has one. This information is optional
with most payment processing companies, but you'll usually get a better pertransaction rate if you supply it.
•
Visa / MasterCard / Discover -- enter the last three digits from the long
number on the back of the credit card (below the magnetic stripe).
•
American Express -- enter the four digits from above the credit card number
on the front of the credit card.
8.
Click the Process button. Client will connect to the Server location.
9.
You may be prompted to enter additional information. Input any extra information
as instructed by Client.
10. The Server location will contact your payment processing company and get a
transaction response. Finally, the Server location will return the transaction
response to you (at the Client location).
64
/
Technical Details: Most responses will be received in 5-20 seconds,
depending on whether a modem or TCP/IP connection is used. There is no
status message while the transaction is processing, so please allow enough
time for the transaction to process (up to 90 seconds) before assuming the
transaction didn’t process. If the transaction was unsuccessful, the Server
location should return a response explaining the problem. If you are
concerned about processing duplicate transactions, please enable the
Require Duplicate Transactions to be Forced feature at the Server location
(consult the section Configure Setup or Preferences in the PCCharge Pro or
Payment Server manual, respectively).
FSA/HRA Transactions
The Credit Card Transaction form now has a checkbox for FSA transactions if the Enable
FSA/HRA Cards option is enabled in the processor setup. This FSA checkbox, which
appears in the lower right side of the Credit Card Transaction form, can be enabled to
‘force’ the prompting for healthcare amounts in cases where the card is an FSA/HRA
card, but the BIN range is not in the BIN table for PCCharge. The BIN ranges for these
cards as well as for other card types are changed constantly at the issuer level, so it is
impossible for PCCharge to always be completely up to date. This checkbox will allow the
user to circumvent the BIN checking and send the proper data for their transaction.
The FSA checkbox will also appear on the Post Auth form once an authorization code has
been entered.
When PCCharge recognizes that the card is an FSA/HRA card based upon the BIN range or
the FSA checkbox is enabled on the Credit Card Transaction form, the following form will
be loaded when the merchant clicks on the Process button:
Total Healthcare Amount: Enter the portion of the transaction amount that is FSA/HRA
eligible. This amount cannot be greater than the transaction amount.
65
The Sub Amount section is a breakdown of the Total Healthcare Amount. Indicate how
much of the Total Healthcare Amount can be assigned to each of the healthcare
categories: Prescription Amount, Vision Amount, Clinic Amount, and Dental Amount.
The total of the amounts submitted for the different categories does not have to add up
to the Total Healthcare Amount; however, the total cannot be greater than the Total
Healthcare Amount.
Credit Card Transaction Types
Sale -- This action decreases the cardholder's limit to buy. It authorizes a transfer of
funds from the cardholder's account to your account.
Credit -- This action increases the cardholder's limit to buy. It authorizes a transfer of
funds from your account to the cardholder's account.
Void Sale -- This action removes a sale transaction. No funds will be received from this
transaction. Use the Void Sale action to correct mistakes and on same-day returns. This
action can only be performed before batch settlement/close. With a host based autoclose system, this action has to be performed on the same day.
Pre-Auth -- This action reduces a cardholder's account's limit to buy for a predetermined
amount of time. A Pre-Auth is the first half of a sale. A Pre-Auth specifies that amount
to be set aside for a potential transfer of funds. The funds are not transfer at batch
settlement/close unless a Post-Auth is performed using the Pre-Auth's approval code. As
previously mentioned, there is a time limit on a Pre-Auth's usability. The processor
determines the time limit, which is usually 7-10 days. You should contact your merchant
service provider/credit card processing company for the exact time.
Post Auth -- This action makes an approved Pre-Auth or voice authorized transaction
available for batch settlement/close. This action is the second half of a sale.
Void Credit -- This action removes a Credit transaction. This action can only be
performed before settlement/close. This action can only be performed before batch
settlement/close. With a host based auto-close system, the action has to be performed
on the same day.
Void Auth -- This action removes a Post-Auth transaction. This action can only be
performed before re-transmission. With a host-based system, the action has to be
performed on the same day. This transaction is not available with all processing
companies. If you want to void a Post-Auth and the action is not available, use the Void
action.
(
Note: You will notice there is no action to void a Pre-Auth. This is because
you cannot void a Pre-Auth. To remove a Pre-Auth, you can have the
processing company remove the transaction (if your processing company is
host-based, they can probably do it). Or, you could follow up the Pre-Auth
with a Post-Auth and do a Void Sale. The only other option is to simply wait
for the authorization to expire.
Book -- This action is essentially the same as a Pre-Auth; it reduces a cardholder's
account’s limit to buy for a predetermined amount of time. The Book transaction is used
with the Ship transaction to make for an efficient and easy-to-use payment processing
solution for MOTO and e-Commerce retailers. A Book transaction is made when the
customer places an order, and is followed by a Ship transaction when the order is
shipped.
66
(
Note: A Book transaction’s corresponding Ship transaction must be
performed at the Server installation.
The following two tabs are available when your account is set up to process prepaid cards
using PCCharge:
Balance Inquiry -- This action is used to determine the balance on a prepaid card.
Reversal -- This action is used to fully reverse a prepaid sale transaction. In a host
environment, this can only be done if it is the next transaction after the transaction
being reversed.
The following tab is available when your account is set up to process FSA/HRA cards using
PCCharge:
Reversal -- This action is used to reverse an FSA transaction. PCCharge will allow the
merchant to attempt to process a Reversal on any “voidable” transaction. There are
processor-specific rules regarding when Reversal transactions can be performed. In a host
environment, this can only be done if it is the next transaction after the transaction
being reversed.
67
About Book & Ship Transaction Processing

Simple Explanation:
Client has the ability to process a special type of
Pre-Auth transaction specifically designed for MOTO and e-Commerce
industries: the Book transaction.
If your company is not set up as a mail order or e-Commerce business, skip
ahead to the section About Restaurant Transaction Processing (see page
70).
(
Note:
The Book transaction type is not accessible in Client unless the credit
card processing company account accessed is setup as MOTO or e-Commerce
at the Server location. Client must be used in conjunction with PCCharge Pro.
A Book transaction performed at the time a customer’s order is placed is the same as a
Pre-Auth. That transaction is then available for completion at the time of shipment using
the Ship transaction type (which is the same as performing a Post-Auth). The Ship
transaction type is only available from the Server location.
The real difference between Pre-Auth & Post-Auth and Book & Ship is that when a
Client user performs a Book transaction, the user at the Server location has a
convenient, easy-to-use drop-down menu in the Ship transaction window. The Server
user can select which transactions to perform, in batch, simply and quickly without
referring to reports to get the information on the original Book transaction (Pre-Auth).
The user is not allowed to change the amount of the transaction from the Book to the
Ship. The amount shipped HAS to be the amount booked.
With Pre-Auth & Post-Auth, the user can authorize the transaction at one amount and
then change that amount when the transaction is posted.
68
Using Book and Ship Transaction Processing

Simple Explanation: If your company is not set up as a mail order or eCommerce business, skip ahead to the section About Restaurant Transaction
Processing (see page 70).
Book & ship transaction processing is handled in much the same way as Pre-Auth and
Post-Auth transaction processing. Essentially, a Book transaction is the same as a PreAuth, and Ship transaction is the same as a Post-Auth. The Ship transaction must be
performed at the Server location. The Client can only perform Book transactions.
Enter all of your transaction information into the Book transaction window. Since the
Book transaction type is similar to the Pre-Auth transaction type, you can refer to the
section Credit Card Transaction Types for more information on both of the types (see
page 66).
(
Note:
As with Sale transactions, processing companies often offer a better
per-transaction rate if you enter the ticket number, zip, CVC2/CVV2/CID, and
street.
69
About Restaurant Transaction Processing

Simple Explanation:
Client has the ability to process restaurant-based
transactions in a way specifically suited for that type of business. Using
Client and a processing company that is certified for restaurant transaction
processing with the Server location, the user can add a gratuity to the total
transaction amount.
If your company is not set up as a restaurant, skip ahead to the section About
Commercial Card Processing (see page 72).
Client can process the following types of restaurant transactions:
•
A Sale (including an estimated gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be used
when the actual gratuity amount is not yet known but the total sale amount is
known at the time of transaction.
•
A Sale (including a known gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be used when
both the actual gratuity amount and the total sale amount are known at the time of
transaction.
•
A Pre-auth (including an estimated gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be
used when the actual gratuity amount is not yet known, but the total pre-auth
amount is known at the time of transaction.
•
A Post-auth (including a known gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be used
when the actual gratuity amount is known after the original corresponding Pre-Auth
transaction has been processed.
•
A Gratuity (after a Sale including an estimated gratuity amount) -- This transaction
should be used when the actual gratuity amount is known after the original
corresponding Sale (including an estimated gratuity amount) transaction has been
processed.
Client can also be configured to require that a two-character Server ID be entered at the
time the transaction is processed. The Server ID entered is then associated with that
transaction, and can be referenced from the Gratuity or Open Gratuity Reports.
70
Using Restaurant Transaction Processing

Simple Explanation: If your company is not set up as a restaurant, skip
ahead to the section About Commercial Card Processing (see page 72).
Restaurant transaction processing is handled in much the same way as normal processing.
The major difference is that there is a second step for some types of restaurant-based
transactions: establishing the actual gratuity amount. This second step ensures that the
correct gratuity amount is transferred from the customer’s account to your account.
The different types of restaurant transactions are explained in detail below:
•
A Sale (including an estimated gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be used
when the actual gratuity amount is not yet known but the total sale amount is
known at the time of transaction. This Estimated Gratuity Amount: can be entered
simply by typing a value in the Estimated Gratuity Amount: field. This transaction
should be followed by a Gratuity transaction.
•
A Sale (including a known gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be used when
both the actual gratuity amount and the total sale amount are known at the time of
transaction. This Actual Gratuity Amount: can be entered simply by typing a value
in the Actual Gratuity Amount: field.
•
A Pre-auth (including an estimated gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be
used when the actual gratuity amount is not yet known but the total pre-auth
amount is known at the time of transaction. This Estimated Gratuity Amount: can
be entered simply by typing a value in the Estimated Gratuity Amount: field. This
transaction type differs from a Sale (including an estimated gratuity amount) in that
a Pre-Auth sets money aside in anticipation of a Post-Auth (including a known
gratuity amount). A Post-Auth can for less than the original Pre-Auth. A Pre-Auth
must be followed by a Post-Auth in order for the funds to be transferred from a
customer’s account to your account.
•
A Post-auth (including a known gratuity amount) -- This transaction should be used
when the actual gratuity amount is known after the original corresponding Pre-Auth
transaction has been processed. This Actual Gratuity Amount: can be entered
simply by typing a value in the Actual Gratuity Amount: field. A Post-Auth (and/or
Actual Gratuity Amount:) can for less than the original Pre-Auth (and/or Estimated
Gratuity Amount:). A Pre-Auth must be followed by a Post-Auth in order for the
funds to be transferred from a customer’s account to your account.
•
A Gratuity (after a Sale including an estimated gratuity amount) -- This transaction
should be used when the actual gratuity amount is known after the original
corresponding Sale (including an estimated gratuity amount) transaction has been
processed. A Gratuity can for less than the original Estimated Gratuity Amount:. A
Sale (including an estimated gratuity amount) must be followed by a Gratuity in
order for the amount of the gratuity to be transferred from a customer’s account to
your account.
71
About Commercial Card Processing

Simple Explanation: Client has the ability to process commercial card
transactions. Commercial cards (also known as corporate cards or purchasing
cards) are special credit cards that are given to employees of businesses,
governments, etc., for company purchases.
If your company is not set up to accept commercial cards (also known as
purchasing or corporate cards), skip ahead to the section Offline Processing
(see page 72).
Commercial card transactions record a customer code and a tax amount. The customer
code is the code that is assigned to that cardholder (by his/her company), and is typically
used for accounting within the cardholder’s company. The tax amount is added to the
total amount to be charged from that card--it’s also kept separate for accounting
purposes.
72
Using Commercial Card Processing

Simple Explanation: If your company is not set up to accept commercial
cards (also known as purchasing or corporate cards), skip ahead to the
section Offline Processing (see page 72).
Commercial cards are processed in almost the same way as normal credit cards. If your
credit card processing company is certified for commercial card processing, Client will
allow you to add a tax amount to the total transaction amount and can also include a
customer code with the transaction information sent to the credit card processing
company.
Client automatically recognizes commercial cards, so no special steps need to be taken
to process commercial cards other than inputting the customer code and tax amount at
the time of the sale.
73
Offline Processing

Simple Explanation: Offline processing allows you to enter all the
necessary data for each of your transactions without having to connect to the
processing company for each transaction immediately. The card information
is saved into a new or existing Super DAT (SDT) file and is held there until the
credit card processing company is actually contacted.
If you don't think you'll need this ability, skip ahead to the section Debit Card
Transactions (see page 76).
WARNING: Transactions processed via offline processing have a higher pertransaction rate than swiped transactions. However, you can often achieve
better rates by providing the greatest amount of information available for
each transaction (Zip, address, etc.). Check with your payment processing
company for details on per-transaction rates.
Offline processing saves time because the credit card processing company is not
contacted for transaction authorization until after the user has finished inputting all
transactions and is ready to process them all as one batch (group). It can also be used
should you temporarily lose your connection to the credit card processing company.
How to Process Offline Transactions
1.
To enable Offline Processing, click Transactions on the menu bar. Click the Credit
Card option. Client will display the Credit Card Transactions window. Click the
Process Offline button.
2.
Client will display a New/Edit Existing window, allowing you to create a new SDT
file or open an existing one (to add transactions). This Super DAT (SDT) file will
contain your offline transactions.
3.
•
If you're creating a new SDT file, enter a filename into the box labeled File
name. Click the Open button to create your file, or click the arrow to the right
of the Look In drop-down box to browse to a different save location.
•
If you're opening an existing SDT file, select the file you wish to open (you may
need to change the Look In location to find your file). Click the Open button to
open the file.
Click OK to create or load your file. Client will return to the Credit Card
Transactions window. Notice that the Process Offline button is activated. This
indicates that any transactions processed will be recorded in the file displayed at
the bottom of this window.
(
4.
Note: If your connection to the processing company is still available and
you're only using offline processing to speed up transaction processing, you can
interrupt offline processing and return to normal processing at any time by
clicking the Process Offline button again to deactivate it.
Process any transactions that you want included in the offline batch of transactions.
Clicking the Process button saves that transaction to your SDT file, and Client will
74
update the transaction count at the bottom of the Credit Card Transactions
window.
5.
When you're done entering transactions, click the Process Offline button to close
the file and save all the transactions you've just entered. Click Cancel to exit the
Credit Card Transactions window.
6.
To actually have your credit card company process the transactions, you'll need to
import your SDT file. Consult the following section, Processing an Import File, for
more information on this subject.
Processing an Import File
Import files must be processed from the Server location. This is intended as a security
feature, since Client-generated import files are usually created in response to a
temporary communications outage. Consult the Server location manual for instructions
on importing offline processing files.
75
Debit Card Transactions
Debit Card Transaction Types
There are two main types of debit card transactions: Sales and Credits. Other debit card
transactions (Void Sale, Void Credit, etc.) are variations on these. The different types of
transactions are also known as actions. Here is a list with general descriptions:
1.
Sale -- This action decreases the cardholder's limit to buy. It authorizes a transfer of
funds from the cardholder's account to your account.
2.
Credit (Return) -- This action increases the cardholder's limit to buy. It authorizes a
transfer of funds from your account to the cardholder's account.
3.
Void Sale -- This action removes a sale transaction. No funds will be received from
this transaction. Use the Void Sale action to correct mistakes and on same-day
returns. This action can only be performed before batch settlement/close. With a
host based auto-close system, the action has to be performed on the same day.
4.
Void Credit (Return) -- This action removes a Credit transaction. This action can
only be performed before batch settlement/close. With a host based auto-close
system, the action has to be performed on the same day. If you want to void a
credit and the action is not available, use the Void action.
5.
Sale Recovery -- This action removes a Void Sale transaction. The original sale will
be processed as if the sale was never voided. This action can only be performed
before batch settlement/close. With a host based auto-close system, the action has
to be performed on the same day.
6.
Credit (Return) Recovery -- This action removes a Void Credit (Return)
transaction. The original credit will be processed as if the credit was never voided.
This action can only be performed before batch settlement/close. With a host based
auto-close system, the action has to be performed on the same day.
Debit Card Processing
1.
From the Client's main window (see page 60), click the Debit icon to access the
Debit Card Sale window. Or, click Transactions on the menu bar, and then click the
Debit Card option.
(
Note: If you are using a PIN pad device with PCCharge, you must click the
Debit icon before you can swipe a debit card through your PIN pad (even if the
Debit Card window is already onscreen). This will activate the magnetic strip
reader and make it ready for use.
2.
Select the transaction type (Sale, Return, etc.) you want to perform. Swipe the
debit card through your card reader.
3.
Depending on your PIN pad and debit card processing company, Client may prompt
you to enter addition transaction data (using either your PIN pad or the Client
interface).
76
4.
Click the Process button. Your PIN Pad will prompt you to have the customer enter
their PIN. After the number is entered, the Server location will contact debit card
processing company and this Client location will display the results of the
transaction.
(
Note: The fields shown below may differ from what you see in your copy of
the Client software, depending on your debit card processing company and the
transaction type being performed.
Debit Card Transaction Fields
Debit Card Number: -- Displays the debit card number captured by your card reader.
Card Member: -- The cardholder's name.
Ticket Number: -- This field allows you to enter an invoice number or some other
internal reference number.
Amount $: -- The dollar amount of the transaction to be processed.
77
Cash Back $: -- This field allows you to enter the cash back amount. The cash back is an
amount over the amount of purchase. This amount is to be given to the customer. It is
basically a service that debit transactions allow you to offer for your customers.
Total $: -- This field shows the total amount of the transaction to be processed. It is
calculated by adding the Amount: and Cash Back $: field.
78
Check Services Transactions
Check Services Processing
Check Verification verifies that the check writer has an account that does not have any
"negative flags" for that method of check verification (drivers license, MICR, etc.). Check
Guarantee guarantees that the check amount will be paid to you regardless of the funds
available in the customer's checking account.
To access the Check Services window, click Transactions on the menu bar. Click the
Check Services option. Or, click the Check button on the Icon Bar.
A check swipe is available for processing checks. You can contact your merchant service
provider for more information.
(
Note:
Your Check Services window may look slightly different depending on
which check services company you are using.
79
Action Tabs
The action tabs allow you to select the desired Action: Sale, Credit, etc. Not all Action
Tabs or fields will be available to every check processing company for every transaction
type.
(
Note: Some of the following fields may not appear in your Check Services
window. This is because each check services company offers different options.
Transit Number -- Allows you to enter your customer's transit number.
Phone Number -- Allows you to enter your customer's phone number.
Zip Code -- Allows you to enter your customer's zip code.
Check Number -- Allows you to enter your customer's check number.
Account Number -- Allows you to enter your customer's checking account number.
Driver's License -- Allows you to enter your customer's driver's license number.
Birth Date -- Allows you to enter your customer's birth date from his or her driver's
license.
State Code -- Allows you to enter your customer's state code.
Amount $ -- Allows you to enter the amount of the transaction.
Ticket -- Allows you to enter an internal invoice number.
(
Note: If you perform check truncation/conversion, you'll need to close your
batch at the end of the day. It is necessary to perform this procedure to have
funds transferred from the customers' accounts to yours. Consult the section
Truncation Close for further explanation of this process (consult the Server
documentation).
All about Check Verification/Guarantee
In verifying/guaranteeing a check, funds are not being moved. Check
Verification/Guarantee is only a one step process. There is no need for re-transmission
(batch settle/close).
1.
Check Verification -- Verification allows you to verify that the check writer has an
account that does not have any "negative flags" for that method of check
verification (driver's license, MICR, etc.).
2.
Check Guarantee -- Guarantee first performs a Check Verification, and then
guarantees that the funds are available, regardless of how much money is actually in
the check writer's account.
80
All about Check Conversion/Truncation
Check Conversion/Truncation is one of the newer developments in electronic payment
processing. It is a process by which a checking account is immediately debited
electronically.
Processing a check conversion is a two-step process:
1.
Process whatever check Sale transactions you have for that particular day.
2.
As with credit cards, there is secondary transmission of information needed to
complete a transaction. This happens at the Server location and is called
Truncation Close.
(
Note: The important thing to remember is that without re-transmission of
the check information, you will not receive your money. Every day that you
perform truncations, the Server location should perform a truncation close
after all transactions are complete.
Check Conversion Up-Close
Check Conversion takes verifying one step further. The first step is to verify/guarantee
the check. The second step is to have the funds electronically moved from your
customer's checking account to yours.
1.
Verify -- This action allows you to verify that a checking account exists for your
customer and guarantees that the amount of the transaction is available. This action
also allows you to perform the first half of a sale transaction. This action does not
make information available for re-transmission.
2.
Sale -- This action reduces the balance of your customers' checking account. A sale
actually performs two functions. First, a sale will verify/guarantee a check. Second,
it will make the transaction available for re-transmission.
3.
Void -- This action removes a Sale or Forced transaction from the re-transmission
information. You will be deleting the transaction. You will not get the funds from
this transaction. Use the Void Sale action to correct mistakes and on same day
returns. This action can only be performed before re-transmission.
4.
Force -- This action makes a verified check transaction available for retransmission. A Verify followed by a Force is equivalent to a Sale.
81
Gift Card Transactions
Gift Card Transaction Types
There are several gift card processing companies currently supported by Client, each
with its own unique transaction types. Consult the PCCharge Appendices for a description
of the transaction types available for each processor.
To access the PCCharge Appendices (available at the Server location), click the Windows
Start button, then Programs (or All Programs), then PCCharge Pro (or PCCharge
Payment Server), then PCCharge Appendices.

Cashier Privileges
Simple Explanation: In order to use cashier privileges at the Client
location, they must be first set up at the Server location (consult the Server
documentation for instructions). Cashier privileges are used to control what
functions a cashier can access.

The Log On icon will be enabled and there will be a Log Off menu choice under File. The
active cashier's User Name is shown at the bottom of the main Client window, next to
the Active Company Display (see page 60).

Simple Explanation: If you encounter the following Log On window, it is
usually because you have started up Client. Enter your User Name and
Password for your cashier account, then click the Log On button. This
information will be available from whoever set up cashier privileges at the
Server location.
The Client will display the Log On window at these times:
•

You may also log in and out of a cashier account by clicking the Log On/Off button on the
Icon Bar. This icon is immediately to the left of the help icon.
85
Manager Override Password

Simple Explanation:
The Manager Override Password window is very
similar to the Log On window. The difference is that the Manager Override
Password window is displayed when a cashier attempts to access a function
that he does not have permission to access.
As stated above, the Manager Override Password window is displayed when a cashier
(Shelly) attempts to access a function that she has not been given permission to access.
The Manager or System user – or even another cashier who has permissions for that
particular function -- can override that protection by entering their User Name and
Password. The first cashier (Shelly) is granted access to that function for that one
instance. If she needs to perform that function again, another override would be
required.
86
Customer Database

Simple Explanation: The Client customer database allows you to store
information about your clients, process transactions, and create recurring
billing contracts. There are two main sections of the Customers window:
•
•
Customer Info -- Allows you to record a customer's personal
information
Credit Card Info -- Allows you to record a customer's credit card
information
The Customer Database accessible from the Client is identical to PCCharge Pro's in every
way except that the Client Customer Database cannot create or process contracts. This
function is reserved for the Server location.
All other functions of the customer database are accessible by Client. The following
sections describe how to use the client customer database.
(
Note: Since the customer database is not available in PCCharge Payment
Server, the customer database functions are not available when the Client is
used in conjunction with PCCharge Payment Server.
87
Customer Info

Simple Explanation: The Customer Info section of the Customers
window allows you to store, view, and edit a customer's credit card
information. This information is stored in the customer database.
Creating a New Customer
1.
From the main window, click the Customers button on the icon bar. Click the Credit
Card Info tab. Note that you can also use the right and left arrows at the bottom of
this window to browse through your customers.
2.
From the Customer Info section of the Customers window, click the New button.
3.
You can manually create a Customer ID, or Client can auto-create the Customer ID
field. If you check the box labeled Auto Assign Customer ID, Client will
automatically create a Customer ID when you click the New button.
4.
Enter your customer's personal information. It is not necessary to use every field.
However, you must at least provide a Company Name or First Name & Last Name.
If you fill out a First Name and Last Name but not a Company Name, a Company
Name will be generated for you.
(
Note: You must use a letter for the first character of Company Name.
Any characters that follow can be letters or numbers. Additionally, all
punctuation is prohibited (due to database restrictions).
(
Note:
You'll usually get the best per transaction rate from your credit
card processing company if you provide complete name and address
information. Check with your processing company for information on how
to get the best per transaction rate.
88
5.
The Credit Limit field allows you to specify (in dollars) a credit limit for the
displayed customer. This field is just a convenient reference; it does not actually
affect whether or not the Client software will allow a transaction to be processed.
6.
After filling out all applicable fields, click the Update button. You will be prompted
to commit changes. If you click Yes, your information will be saved. A plus sign
should appear next to the corresponding folder (on the left side of the Customers
window). A plus sign shows that a folder contains on or more entries. The entries in
the database are listed alphabetically by the Company Name field.
Deleting a Customer
The Client Customer Database can delete database entries.
Finding an Existing Customer
Click the Find button to access the Find Customer window and search through customer
database entries for a particular customer. The search allows you to use the Customer
ID, Company Name, and Last Name fields from the Customers window to find the
desired customer. Select the field you would like to use in the search, and enter the
information you'd like to find (using the Search For field).
89
Credit Card Info

Simple Explanation:
The Credit Card Info section of the Customers
window allows you to store a customer's credit card information in the
customer database. You can also use this section to process individual
transactions for specific customers.
Recording a Customer's Credit Card Information
1.
From the main window, click the Customers button on the icon bar. Select the
customer whose credit card information you wish to view/edit. If you have not
entered any customers into the customer database, refer the subsection Creating a
New Customer in the section Customer Info (see page 88).
2.
Click the Credit Card Info tab to access the Credit Card Info section of the
Customers window. The values in the Credit Card Number, Expiration Date, Alt
Credit Card Number, and Alt Expiration Date fields are pulled from the Customer
Info window. You can also use the right and left arrows at the bottom of this
window to browse through your customers.
3.
Enter the customer's Credit Card Number and Expiration Date. If an alternate
credit card number is available for customer, enter that information into Alt Credit
Card Number and Alt Expiration Date. This information can be used to create
recurring billing contracts, and can also be used to process individual transactions
from the Customer Transactions window (see page 92). The Alt Credit Card
Number and Alt Expiration Date fields may be left blank.
90
4.
You can enter an Amount if you expect to constantly manually process transactions
for this customer for the same amount (instead of using automatic recurring billing).
This field may be left blank.
5.
If you're performing a commercial card transaction and your processing company is
set up to process commercial cards, enter the cardholder's Customer Code, Tax
amount, and Ship To Zip. These fields are not available for editing unless you're
processing a commercial card. Refer to the section All about Commercial Card
Processing for more information on commercial cards (see page 72).
6.
Click the Update button, and your customer's credit card information will be saved
to the customer database. After you click Update, only the first four and last four
digits of the credit card number will be displayed (for security reasons), but the
entire number is stored in the customer database.
Editing a Customer's Credit Card Information
1.
To edit an existing customer's credit card information, you must first select a
customer using the folder on the left of the Customers window. If you have not
entered any customers into the customer database, refer the subsection Creating a
New Customer in the section Customer Info (see page 88).
2.
Make any changes as necessary.
3.
Click the Update button, and your customer's credit card information will be saved
to the customer database. After you click Update, only the first four and last four
digits of the credit card number will be displayed (for security reasons), but the
entire number is stored in the customer database.
Processing a Customer Transaction
Using the folder on the left of the Customers window, select the customer for whom you
wish to process a transaction. Click the Process button to access the Customer
Transaction window and process a transaction for the selected customer (see page 92).
Finding an Existing Customer
Click the Find button to access the Find Customer window and search through customer
database entries for a particular customer. The search allows you to use the Customer
ID, Company Name, and Last Name fields from the Customers window to find the

information you'd like to find (using the Search For field).
91
Customer Transactions

Simple Explanation: The Customer Transactions window allows you to
process non-recurring transactions for specific customers. The difference
between this window and the main Credit Card Transaction window is that
this window provides a convenient way to process transactions for customers
recorded in the customer database.
Processing a Customer Transaction
(
Note:
The following instructions apply to processing individual customer
transactions using a credit card. If a customer wants to use an alternate form
of currency for a contract-based payment, refer to the Manual Payment
method described in the subsection Editing a Customer Contract in the
section Contracts (in the Server manual).
1.
To access the Customer Transactions window, click Customers on the menu bar.
Click the Customers option. Select the customer for whom you wish to process a
transaction. Click the Credit Card Info tab. Click Process to access the Customer
Transactions window.
2.
Client will automatically fill out this window with the transaction, customer, and
card information from the Customer Info and Credit Card Info sections of the
Customers window. You can manually modify some of the values listed in the
Customer Transactions window), but any changes made in this window will not
affect the customer's recorded information. To make permanent changes to the
customer's information, use the Customer Info (see page 88) and Credit Card Info
(see page 90) sections of the Customers window.
92
3.
Using the Credit Card Number drop-down box, select the customer's credit card
number you wish to use to process the transaction. The Exp. Date field will
automatically display the expiration date associated with the selected credit card
number.
4.
Select the transaction type you wish to process from the Trans Type drop-down
box.
5.
Enter a ticket number for the transaction. This should be some internal reference
number you create (invoice number, sales number, etc.).
6.
If you are performing a Void or a Post-Auth, enter the original transaction's
Reference Number.
7.
If you are performing a commercial card transaction and your processing company is
set up to process commercial cards, enter the cardholder's Customer Code.
8.
If you are performing a CitiCorp Private Label Sale or Post-Auth transaction, enter a
Promo Code (up to 5 digits).
9.
You may enter a tax amount in the Tax field whether or not you are performing a
commercial card transaction However, the tax amount will not be recorded to the
customer database unless you are processing a commercial card and your processing
company is set up to process commercial cards.
10. By default, the Sub Total will be the same as the value entered in the Amount field
in the Credit Card Info section of the Customer window. You can change the Sub
Total manually entering a new value into the field. Alternatively, you can enter
product/service Descriptions and Amounts, and Client will compute a Sub Total for
you.
(
Note: This information is not stored in the customer database for later
retrieval. It is merely a convenience used to itemize purchases at the time of
the transaction. This information will not be printed to your receipts.
11. Click OK and Client will attempt to contact the Server location and have it process
the transaction.
93
Reports

Simple Explanation: This section explains how to access each report
and find out what transaction information each report presents. You will also
learn how to configure your report's data.
(
Note: This function provides access to all reports accessible at the Server
location of PCCharge. If you find that a report is not accessible, it usually
means that the active processing company does not support that report type.
The Reports menu on PCCharge Client's menu bar has many sub-menus. The reports are
categorized by the type of data they display: credit card Transactions, Batches, Check
transactions, Debit transactions, etc. When selected, each Reports menu item brings up
a window similar to the following:
94
(
Note:
Not all Reports windows selectable from the Reports menu will have
the same options and fields accessible. For example, in the Today's Summary
Report, you wouldn't be able to change the Member: and Ticket #: fields.
Further, not all processing companies will have access to the same reports. An
account using a host based system would, of course, not be able to access the
Settled Batch report (host based systems close their batches, terminal based
systems settle their batches).
Report Type
Each Reports menu item will display a different report type in the Report Type: field.
You can select a different report type from this list by clicking on the small arrow to the

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Does PCCharge Pro/PS have to be on my actual network server?
Answer: No. PCCharge Pro/PS can be on any computer to which the Client can establish
a network connection. The Server must have the ability to connect to the processing
company and the ability to share the PCCharge Pro/PS folder to the Client locations.
Question: Will the Client work with the PCCharge Server operate over a Novell
network?
Answer: PCCharge Pro/PS and Client were designed to operate on a Windows 9X/NT
network. We have had some of our customers tell us they were able to get the
relationship to work on a Novell network, but our Technical Support Department cannot
support such an arrangement.
