Make customer connections

By handing out sign-up cards to your customers and scanning their app/card, you have made a connection to them. You can use these connections to send them offers to encourage them to visit again.

How to give Local Dollars when the terminal isn't working

Write down the customers member number found under their scan code, and the purchase amount. At a later time, when the terminal is working, swipe left on the "Scan" screen to bring up the "Type" screen that lets you manually enter the transaction. A reminder that you can't accept payment in Local Dollars using this method.
