POS system setup for Saline Stars transactions
To record Saline Stars transactions, you'll first need to add Saline Stars as a payment method. After it has been configured as such, you'll be able to select it when a customer asks to redeem their Saline Stars for a purchase at your business. Configuration of new payment methods / tender types are different for each POS system. Please find your system's name and click the link for full configuration instructions.

B. Setup for POS systems with manual transactions records:
In case you use a manual register, or your existing POS system does not support adding a new tender type, we recommend you have a manual record for Saline Stars transactions. Here are few suggestions:
Marking any receipts that are paid for with Saline Stars in a distinguishable way (such as writing the letter 'Saline Stars' on the receipt) and filing the receipts for reconciliation at the end of each payment period.
Logging every Saline Stars transaction on a spreadsheet or other bookkeeping software.
Repurposing an existing tender type that is not used (for example an IOU button or a Gift Certificate button). This button or tender type should be exclusively used to record Saline Stars transactions and will effectively serve as the Saline Stars button on their POS.
To continue giving your customers the best service, please make sure to train your staff on the Saline Stars redemption transactions.
