There are many reasons why you might want to do an In House payment.
What is an In House Payment?
An In House payment is a transaction that is not being processed through RainMaker. No transaction actually occurs. Using this feature just documents that the payment was made to you.
It could be that you are not yet set up for autoCollect but want to keep a record of the payments being made, have accurate reports, track what is being sold in your POS or you could want to go and record back dated payments for your members so that you can see their payment history.
How to do In House Credit Card Transactions in your POS:
1. Select Credit Card
2. Select Card Type (drop down box will come up).
In this box are the "Apply Now" cards. These are your In House credit cards.
APPLY NOW: Visa, MasterCard, AmEx, Discover
When you click on one of these options, a message will come up explaining to you how a charge is not actually being applied to any card.
"IMPORTANT: BY SELECTING "APPLY NOW: Visa" MEANS RAINMAKER IS NOT ACTUALLY CHARGING THEIR CREDIT CARD. RAINMAKER IS ONLY APPLYING THE AMOUNT TO THIS INVOICE AS IF YOU USED A CREDIT CARD TERMINAL OUTSIDE OF RAINMAKER (i.e. a traditional credit card swipe terminal hooked to a phone line.) "
3. Select an Apply Now Credit Card
4. Make sure the "Amount of In House Card?" is correct
5. Click Apply
6. Select Ok to the Sales Complete pop up
7. Click Complete Sale
8. You will then be able to print a receipt if you so desire, or if not select Continue
Now the payment has been documented for your records and you can view it under Payment History on that member's profile page.
I hope this was helpful :)
Thank you for being a RainMaker!!
