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



When invoicing, you will see the payment type available (eg. Tyro or EFTPOS, as per your description in Payment Type).


tyro payment


Click 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.).



You can cancel Tyro EFTPOS halfway through the transaction if necessary.


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


The payment type will also appear on the invoice.



You can only use one EFTPOS system at a time per workstation (ie. you cannot use PC-EFTPOS and Tyro at the same time on the same workstation.

If you are using multiple EFTPOS types in your Jim2 network, we advise to use different tills and different payment types to distinguish the payments. This will also make till reconciliation easier.
