General Credit Card Settings

Allow Tips – Check this on if your processor is set up to accept tips on credit cards.

Collect Immediately – Check this on if you are taking tips and would like to be prompted immediately after the sale to add the tip.

Use Bulk Tips – Tipping feature for use with full Table Management (additional purchase) that allows all tipping transactions to be performed together in one operation.

Allow Tip Payouts – Tipping feature for use with full Table Management (additional purchase) and Bulk Tips that allows users to payout their own tips.
