When processing offline credit card transactions in Zenoti, you can use multiple card swiping machines, and record the machine used to charge the customer using the Terminal drop-down. This information would be helpful if you are analyzing credit card transaction fees based on the card issuing bank and terminal used. For example when a Citibank card is charged using a Union Bank terminal, you may incur 2% transaction fee. However, 3% transaction fee will be applied when using a different terminal provided by Standard Bank.
Terminal names are displayed in a drop down box in the POS when the credit/debit card option is chosen. If you want to add a new terminal name to the drop down box, you will first have to add it at the center level.
