To get started, ask your POS support to configure Toggle on your installation of Datasym POS. They will enable Toggle Gift Cards on your POS system. Once the configuration is complete, Toggle Gift Cards will be available as a payment method on your POS.
If you are managing the configuration of your POS installation, follow the steps below. Otherwise, skip to the “At the Till” section.
DPOS SQL Setup (Self managed configuration only)
Please note: The below instructions only apply if you are configuring your own POS system. Otherwise, get in touch with your POS support who will handle this setup for you.
Toggle Gift cards are enabled by selecting Toggle from the dropdown list on the Gift Cards page of the DPOS SQL config editor:
This will display all the config fields below that need information entered to complete the setup. Ask the Toggle support team to supply the configuration details for this screen:
- API Endpoint: https://api.mytoggle.io/graphql
The currency will be GBP.
The POS Reference needs to be the same one that you enter when you configure your sites in Toggle. So you can make one up, as long as you use a unique reference for each of your sites, if you have more than one.
DPOS SQL Database (Self managed configuration only)
You will need to ensure the Gift Card MOP (Method of Payment) is enabled in the MOPS table of the DPOSQL database. If you want the values taken on gift cards included in the z-read you will also need to set the IncludeInDrawCount column to ‘True’.
Stockade (Self managed configuration only)
To set up a button to sell a gift card you will need to add a new button to the till via the schema editor (Maintenance > POS Buttons).
The button type is ‘Gift Card’ and in the data field you can enter the value. e.g. 10 = £10. This allows you to sell preset gift card values (e.g. £10 Gift Card). However, if you want to allow open priced gift card, then leave the data field blank.
