Payment settings

Navigation:  Working with cash register > Application settings >

In section Payment settings you define payment options and what types of payments will be displayed in the settlement dialog when the order is issued.

Default payment method. If you deactivate this method, it will not be displayed in the settlement dialog. When combined with a disabled user privilege for Change Application Settings, the crew will not be able to use this payment method or to activate it retrospectively.

Payment card

Activate if you use the external terminal for debit and credit cards.

Payment card setup

By clicking on this option you can select whether the cash register draw also opens when paying by debit/credit card.

clip0058 Payment terminal SumUp®

Activate when you want to use Dotypos with the payment terminal SumUp. However, you have to install the driver for this terminal first. The complete connection guide can be found in this chapter. If this payment method is active, it is shown in the settlement dialog.

SumUp® settings

By clicking on this option you set options for the payment terminal SumUp®.



If you activate this option, there will be an option to pay by check in the settlement dialog.

Meal Vouchers

If you activate this option, there will be an option to pay by meal vouchers in the settlement dialog.

Electronic Food Vouchers

If you activate this option, there will be an option in the settlement dialog to pay with electronic luncheon vouchers. To accept you must have a payment terminal that supports electronic luncheon vouchers.

Electronic Food Vouchers settings

If you have a standard payment terminal not supporting electronic luncheon vouchers connected to the cash register, it can be deactivated for this payment method. So you record the payment via electronic luncheon voucher, but the payment terminal will not be contacted. This is useful when you are using another payment terminal not connected to the cash register for electronic luncheon vouchers.


Paying for alcoholic drinks with meal vouchers and electronic food vouchers can be restricted using special tags that you add to individual products.

Gift Card/Voucher

A special payment method for subsequently drawing the issued voucher. The issued voucher is a product with 0% VAT and with the tag -voucher. If the customer has an undercharge, you have to divide the payment (Credit/Voucher + cash or debit/credit card).


Specific procedures for selling and receiving coupons (vouchers) and advances, or for selling used goods, can be found in the knowledge database.


Bank transfer

If you activate this option, there will be an option to pay via bank transfer in the settlement dialog.


After activating this method you can just stock out the items from the warehouse (e.g. when beverage spilled) directly from the settlement dialog. By issuing the receipt with the payment method Write-Off all the goods sold will be deducted including the set ingredients. However the regular document is not issued, only a confirmation about the write-off that does not affect in any way sales and the cash register VAT.

After issuing items with the method Write-Off the transaction will be recorded correctly as Write-Off in the warehouse application as well. Starting with the next version, this warehouse operation will also be available in Dotypos Cloud so you will be able to filter warehouse operations and use write-off also in new reports.

Write-off for products and ingredients

If you are using ingredients, Dotypos also offers to write-off the used ingredients. It is very easy:

1.In the cash register settings activate the payment method Write-off.

2.Then you can also find this payment method in the settlement dialog.

3.Charge the products you need to write-off and “settle” the order using the payment method Write-Off.

4.The products will be depreciated, including the ingredients.
