Tips

How to tip using the Goodtill POS system

The tipping process can vary between the different payment methods - please see below for the method you use.

Please note for all types tips will need to be enabled in the Goodtill back office by going to Setup > Registers > Edit the register > Advanced Options > Enable Tips > Submit > Refresh on the POS app. 

Tips can be seen in the Goodtill back office by running the Sales Report, or the dedicated Tips Report here

Cash

When you press Pay, you can change the amount tendered box and increase the amount by which they're overpaying/tipping. The system will recognise that the sale has been overpaid and ask you if you want to give the extra amount as change or add as tips. Select add as tips.

Zettle

When you press Pay, the amount will flash up on the Zettle reader and the reader will ask the customer whether they want to add a tip. If they select yes, it will prompt them on how much they want to tip. When they pay, the sale will complete as normal and the Goodtill system will have the record of the amount added as tips which can be viewed in the Goodtill Sales Report. 

PaymentSense

Tips need to be enabled by PaymentSense first for the terminals - please visit this page here for more information. When PaymentSense have enabled this, the amount will flash up on the terminal and the reader will ask the customer whether they want to add a gratuity. If they select yes, it will prompt them on how much they want to tip. When they pay, the sale will complete as normal and the Goodtill system will have the record of the amount added as tips which can be viewed in the Goodtill Sales Report. 

SumUp

Currently tips aren't integrated between the SumUp reader and the Goodtill POS app. There are two options for workarounds:

Method 1

Create a product in the Goodtill backoffice called "Tips" and enable the open price function on it. Then add it to your selling layout as normal. 

Then when a customer wants to tip, you can select the button and ask the customer how much they want to tip and enter the amount in accordingly, and pay off the sale as normal.

 

Method 2

You can also change the amount tendered box and increase the amount by which they're overpaying/tipping. The system will recognise that the sale has been overpaid and ask you if you want to give the extra amount as change or add as tips - select add as tips. Please note that when using this function it will appear on the receipt as below:
