Non-integrated (manual) payment type setup

For payment providers that are not currently integrated with Lightspeed, you can use a non-integrated payment type.

Non-integrated card payments require you to manually enter the payment amount into the card terminal and process the payment, then confirm in Retail POS that the payment is accepted to close the sale. 

Using Retail POS, you can use any credit card/EFTPOS card payment terminal as a non-integrated stand-alone terminal. To use this, create a button for the payment type by navigating to Setup > Payment types and selecting Add payment type.

  Tip

You can create more than one payment button for each payment type, for example, Credit card - Visa, Credit card - AMEX, Credit card - Mastercard.

This will allow you to better track your payments in reporting and register closures.

Select either Cash or Other payment type from the dropdown.

  • Cash: for payments such as cash, cheques, promotional vouchers, etc. These payment types will not incur card fees when using Cash Discounting
  • Other payment type: for payments such as non-integrated card payments. These payment types will incur card fees when using Cash Discounting

Once you've chosen the payment type, click Begin setup. Next, enter a name for the payment type and select which outlets the payment type will be available from the outlets dropdown.

When you're done, click Save payment type.

If the payment type is a non-integrated card payment, you will then need to separately set up your card payment terminal using the directions that came with the terminal.

When the time comes to take payment, you can process the payment using the terminal and hit the corresponding payment button in Retail POS.
