Tyro setup1


All payments and refunds using this payment type will now automatically use Tyro EFTPOS as the payment method.



When invoicing, the payment type will be available (eg. Tyro or EFTPOS, as per the description in Payment Type) in the Invoice screen.


tyro payment


Select Tyro and the EFTPOS screen will appear with the amount entered. Click OK, and follow the instructions to process the payment from the card (eg. swipe card, enter pin, etc.).



Tyro EFTPOS can be cancelled halfway through the transaction if necessary.


When finished, Jim2 has received the payment and is ready to process the invoice.


The payment type will also appear on the invoice.



Only one EFTPOS system can be used at a time per workstation, ie. PC-EFTPOS and Tyro cannot be used at the same time on the same workstation.

If there are multiple EFTPOS types in the Jim2 network, it is advised to use different tills and different payment types to distinguish the payments. This will also make till reconciliation easier.
