Lookup credit card names from numbers: If you select this option, XpertMart will be able to identify the type of credit card a customer is using based on the credit card number entered at the point of sale. For this option to work, you need to fill in the Begin Range and End Range fields in the Credit Card catalog. In the example shown below, the Begin Range for American Express is 300000000000000 and the End Range is 399999999999999. This means that any credit card number falling between these two numbers will be automatically identified as an American Express card.

In the example below, the customer is paying with a credit card. When the cashier enters the number (3632546974004) and presses <Enter>, the words American Express will appear in the name field.

Looking up credit card names from numbers will save you time at the point of sale and can curb credit card fraud.

Capture bank names for checks: If you select this option, you will be required to choose a Bank from a drop-down menu (shown below) whenever you accept Checks as a Payment Type. If you do not select this option, then no drop-down menu will appear and you do not have to capture any additional information about the checks you are receiving. This will speed up payment processing at the point of sale but widen the opportunities for fraud.
