To use Afterpay with Cin7's POS, you must do some simple setup tasks, explained below.
First, add some configuration options to Cin7.
Second, link your Afterpay setup to a specific payment method. This means that when you click 'Afterpay', for instance, Cin7 will know to push payment information to Afterpay. For more information about how to add payment methods see Setting up POS Payments.
Finally, you must setup a POS register for each POS device that will be accepting Afterpay as a form of payments within your sales.
Repeat this process for each of the POS registers in your company.
You can now login to the POS while using the register code you had specified within the POS Register setup settings page. If you don’t login to the POS using the same register code, the connection to Afterpay will not be authorized.
Once logged in to POS with the correct register code and you attempt to process your first Afterpay payment, the Afterpay Device name, and secret will be Activated. Upon activation, the same device name and secret cannot be reactivated meaning only that POS register can make use of the specified device name and secret.
To use the payment method in the POS:
Upon doing so, the transaction will be authorized and the sale will be registered within the customers Afterpay account.
The customer would then have to pay the amount they owe to Afterpay in increments based on their terms and conditions with Afterpay. The merchant (Cin7’s customer) would then receive their share of the payment from Afterpay.
Upon doing a refund for an order that was fully paid or partially paid for using Afterpay, you can only refund the amount from that order that was paid for with Afterpay, no more no less. - This is essentially the fundamental rule behind all instances where you are to process a refund for an order that is associated with an Afterpay payment.
If doing an exchange for a product that is of higher value than the product which is being returned, you won’t be able to pay the difference using Afterpay.
If doing an exchange for a product that is of lesser value than the product which is being returned, the amount that was paid using Afterpay must be refunded first before any other payment method.
The same fundamental rule of processing refunds also applies when doing returns for an exchanged item. (You can only refund the amount from that order that was paid for with Afterpay, no more no less).
