Additional Options



By default, Swiper1 is setup to work with least restrictions. Upon installation, Swiper1 is fully operational with appropriate login credentials. To customize Swiper1 follow the various setting options described below:

General Settings

The following options may be customized :

  • Require a signature for all transactions (ON / OFF): In ON position signature will be required.
  • Require a signature for transactions over $: A limit may be set for signature. All transactions over the set limit will require a signature while transactions below the limit will NOT require a signature. 
  • Pre-Authorization: In ON position, Pre-Authorizations let you get authorization for the card by doing a Zero $(0.00) transaction. By entering the number of days, Pre-Authorization will be allowed for that period only. After that automatically the transaction will be canceled.
  • Add Billing Information: In ON position, it will ask for customer’s Address, City, Country, State, Zip/Postal Code and Phone details on the Billing Information Screen. 
  • Sales tax option (%): In ON position all transactions will incur an added tax. In the following example, a 6% tax is added to all transactions by default. The calculated tax may be edited during the transaction process. 
  • Tax deductible option (%): In ON position, the percentage of the transaction that is tax deductible will be displayed. In the following example, 50% of all payments will be tax deductible. The tax deductible portion will appear in the receipt.
  • Default SKU: In ON position, we can enter the Default SKU. SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) is an identification, usually alphanumeric, of a particular product that allows it to be tracked for inventory and other purposes.
  • Tracker: Trackers will be saved and may be downloaded through the reporting portal. The TEXT entered in the Tracker will be posted to Salesforce CRM as part of the transaction record.
  • Default Campaign: Campaign will be saved and may be downloaded through the reporting portal.  The campaign will also post to Salesforce and matched against the existing campaigns. Non-existent campaigns will be created automatically.
  • GiveBig Campaign URL Alias: You can connect swiper1 to your GiveBig campaign by entering the GiveBig campaign in this area so all transactions done on swiper1 will get posted to your GiveBig campaign. Make sure that Swiper1 and GiveBig have the same account number. 
  • Connect Campaign URL: By entering the campaign name here, you are connecting Swiper1 to your Connect Campaign, so transactions done through Swiper1 will automatically be added to the Connect campaign. Make sure that Swiper1 and Connect have the same account number.
Don’t forget to SAVE the settings.
