Payment Card Overview

Payment cards such as credit, debit, and EBT cards can be processed directly from the EBMS software. This option streamlines the processing, settlement, and management of payment card processing. The secure PCI approved method of credit card storage and processing combined with the cash management tools of the EBMS software creates an efficient way of recording multiple payment methods.  

Various payment cards can be processed using the EBMS software and attached peripherals. The EBMS software interfaces with the Verifone Point technology to meet PCI Security Standards Council requirements. Review Point of Sale > Getting Started > Securely Implementing EBMS for PCI security recommendations.

The payment card module also gives the user a secure means of storing credit card information within a sales order or customer account without storing the actual credit card number. The payment card process gives the user the convenience of flexible payments without the security concerns of many applications.

Crediting a Payment Card

Refunding a payment card may be required for a number of reasons:

  1. Overpayment on a purchase:  A credit balance may result from an overpayment of a sales invoice.   

  2. Return of product:  A credit may be generated to reimburse a customer who returned merchandise on a paid sales invoice.
