MobileBytes Announces Credit Card Sale/Adjust Feature

New Features:

MobileBytes POS Announces Credit Card Adjustment - Sale and Adjust Update for BridgePay Users!

Requiring merchants to add a tip to all credit card transactions when using the BridgePay gateway was very challenging at the end of the day, especially for merchants that do not accept tips from their customers. In response, MobileBytes has added the Sale/Adjust functionality for performing credit card transactions through BridgePay. Sale/Adjust transactions do not require a tip to batch, so merchants who do not accept tips, or merchants who do not want to have to put a $0.00 tip on every non-tipped transaction, can benefit from the new option*. Please note that Sale/Adjust is limited to certain processors listed on the BridgePay Network Certification Matrix, and is only available for locations running version 2.24.

*Please note that merchants who wish to accept tips and run Sale/Adjust transactions must have their tips entered PRIOR to the batch running, as any tips attempted after the autobatch time will not be processed.

If you have any questions,

please contact support at 907-243-2683.

Announcing MobileBytes Scan for Points!

By Lynn Skurla Perkins | Dec 16, 2016 10:38:32 AM

Enhance any restaurant experience with MobileBytes guest engagement app:

The MobileBytes app for iPhone and Android allows restaurant guests to interact directly with MobileBytes POS. Guests can now scan their receipts to earn points and rewards, and every scanned receipt is automatically saved in the app’s history allowing users to look back at their previous orders. MobileBytes makes it easy to explore and discover other participating restaurants where they can scan, earn rewards, and be greeted with a custom iBeacon notification when they enter the restaurant.

  • Scan guest receipts to earn Points & Rewards
  • Keep track of past orders
  • Explore new restaurants
  • Receive a welcome message when entering a participating restaurant
  • and much more!

Loyal guests will now have the ability to scan a barcode attached to their transaction receipt to earn points. Guests will no longer need to remember to inform restaurant staff they are loyal customers before paying for their order. Their receipt is their reminder that points are available for their purchase, and their MobileBytes loyalty app will scan and keep track of all points and rewards for every participating MB POS restaurant where they dine. Anytime a receipt is scanned, a copy of the receipt is automatically saved along with a display of points awarded for each purchase. Guests can still use their phone number to attach themselves to tickets but scanning makes this optional rather than required.

Our first generation of enclosures were made my NClose.  They were hardened plastic and worked well, but could sometimes cause charging or swipe card issues via the extension cables it used.  Our customers asked for a better solution and a direct result of that need is the VAULT enclosures.
