EFTPOS Scanner Usage


These scanners let you directly pay for things with your ID card, without having to take out cash credits from an ATM. You can order one from cargo, or find them lying around in every department at round start.

Use the scanner in your hand. This should open up the transaction menu. You will want to click where it says linked account. It will ask you for an account number and a password. You can use any account here; if you are the head of a department you can input your departments account number.

Once the scanner is linked to the account, you can click on transaction amount to set the price. After the account and price are set into the scanner, you can click on `Lock in transaction`. This will lock the scanner, so the purchasing customer can swipe their card through it. The money is then withdrawn from the customers account, and deposited into the preset account. You can then unlock the scanner and input a different price for a different transaction.
