Bounced checks and purchases by underage minors are
two things that can stop a business cold in their tracks if not managed properly. Serv-A-Check offers an exclusive answer to this
business challenge with the Omni 3200 Point of Sale terminal. Not interested in another gadget by your cash
register? The Omni 3200 POS terminal can not
only process your credit cards, swipe a drivers license for correct age (Age Verification)
and guarantee your checks, all in one system!
Most business currently have terminals to
process debit and credit cards next to each register within their store. What they
dont have is a solution to combine credit processing, check verification against a
negative database and age verification with the ability to verify a persons age for
purchase all in one.
What is Age Verification?
Most states include a bar code or magnetic (Mag)
stripe on the back of issued drivers licenses. This
stripe or bar code includes information about the licensee, such as: address, date of
birth, state licensed etc. By swiping the license through the terminal in the same manner
as a credit purchase, the terminal screen will show State, Age and Date of Birth. Allowing a clerk or associate to immediately
identify if this is indeed a minor. Terminal
screen will show on license holders 16 or 7 years old: No Alcohol, No Tobacco. On license holders 18, 19, or 20: No Alcohol.
Another added feature is being able to catch
fake, altered or another persons ID as the information will not match should they
use a check or credit card form of payment. Should question still arises to the validly of
the patron, the Omni 3200 POS terminal is also set-up with a Signature line. This is for the purpose of acquiring and comparing
the signature on the scanned license. The
Signed copy may also be kept as evidence should illegal activity be reported.
This reader also safeguards your business in
many ways. First off, it can be a tool to
require from all clerks and associates to scan drivers license since they are required to
present it anyways for purchase forcing them to follow the rules. Another added benefit is removing the decision
from the clerk and placing it on the machine. Some
underage minors may become upset at the denial of purchase and become angry towards the
clerk or associate. Nothing I can
do approach can then be used with an offer to get a manager should the patron press
for purchase alerting the store to a potential problem.
What is Check Verification:
When a customer or patron presents a check as form of
payment, the check can also be swiped through the terminal and compared with a negative
database offered through National Check Network (NCN) to secure funds. Used with Serv-A-Checks guarantee service,
funds are then guaranteed at the point of sale as long as an address and phone number are
present on the check. The terminal is
designed to provide positive feedback for the customer or patron to see, but indicates to
you if name is found within the database. It
is your choice to continue to take the check, its guaranteed through Serv-A-Check or
as a business owner, you can decide not to accept it and ask for another form of payment. Its your choice, but an uncertainty you
dont have to deal with.
