Sending receipts

2- Email - where your customer will be able to enter their email address and receive the receipt through their inbox. 

3- SMS - Where your customer is required to enter their phone number (including the country's code) and receive the receipt through message. 

4- QR CODE - Which they can scan with their camera and have the receipt prompt up on their device. 

Tip Function 

Vibrant app enables you to use a tip function where your customers are able to add a tip together with their transactions. The tip function is completely optional, here is how to activate or deactivate the function. 

1. Open app settings 

2. Activate tip function 

Once the option is activated, and a transaction is being completed, the tip screen will prompt and allow your customer to add a pre-assigned percentage to tip you from the total amount of the transaction, personalize the percentage they would like to add, or choose to not provide any tip through the transaction. 

Void & Refund

A void is a transaction that has been confirmed and approved but the transfer of funds is still pending. 

A refund occurs when the funds have already been transferred to the business. Both options return the customer funds to their account. 

All your transactions will appear in the Void section automatically after the transaction has been made, and will stay visible on the void tab only on the day the transaction took place. On the following day after the transaction took place, it can be found in the refund tap of your app.

If you would like to learn more about refunds, please read our article on the topic. 

How to complete a refund

When searching for a specific transaction on your Void or Refund section, you can type the following on the search bar: 

1. Date & Time the transaction took place.

2. Ammount of the transaction.

3. The last 4 digits of the payment card used for the transaction.

Now you know the main features of the app, make sure to complete a few test transactions before taking the terminal to your customers, once you feel comfortable with placing cards on the right spot of your phone, you will be better at guiding your customers on how to make successful transactions at your shop.
