There are a number of options that SalonTouch has to help make working with EFT Membership Services more automated, easier on the employees, and more secure. The following information will go over the settings that can be changed in SalonTouch.
These settings apply to directly processing EFT Membership Drafts.
- Click Setup
- Click the Activations tab on the top left.
- Click Creditcard Proces...
- Click on the EFT POS Settings tab on the right.
- Under the EFT Processing Options section you have the following options:
When Processing EFTs when a transaction is Declined apply an additional ____ to the client's :
This setting will add the client's normal EFT draft plus an additional salon defined amount to the user's account. The salon has the option of putting this amount in a NSF EFT fee or a general NSF fee.
- Automatically decline Expired Credit Cards.
This allows the salon to decline expired cards without processing them.
Process EFTs as recurring payments
If the salon captures the card-holder's billing address, charges can be run as a reoccurring payment. This reduces the processing fees for the salon.
- Use Capture/Settle Processing with EFT credit card transactions. (When not using tokens.)
This helps ensure accurate and timely processing of EFTs.
These settings deal with how EFT Membership Services are processed through the register.
- Click Register on the left side of the screen. These settings control how EFTs are handled at the register point of sale.
- Click on the EFTs tab on the far right.
16. Available EFT Payment Options
These are the type of acceptable draft options when collecting credit card information.
17. Require EFT information to be completed at the time an EFT service is sold: This will cause a pop-up to appear that will allow an employee to capture credit card information.
This forces the credit card capture screen to appear so that the client's card information will be captured at the time of sale. You can then force an EFT contract stored on the SalonTouch PC to be pritned at time of sale. This option also allows you to lock what EFT information the employees can alter when capturing the EFT account information.
18. The default date of EFT drafts is:
This is the default day that the salon's EFTs will draft. By default it is 1, but can be set to any other day. Drafts on the 29th ,30th, or 31st will be run on the last day of the month if that date does not exist in the month.
19. When EFT payments are posted reward the client with ____ purchase points per dollar drafted.
The salon can give client's purchase points for a successful EFT draft. The points are rewarded based on the dollar amount of their EFT draft. Setting the point to 0 will not reward any.
22. Default tax for EFT drafts when adding a new EFT service or when EFT tax breakdown information is missing.
This is a list of taxes that will automatically apply to all new EFT drafts. This will not affect the purchase price at the register, but will automatically set these for new EFT drafts created.
23. Tax for EFT drafts that are frozen and a freeze charge is to be collected.
24. Users with SalonTouch Evolution version 3.0.36 and higher have the option to credit the freeze draft directly to the client's pre-paid account.

When processing a Freeze EFT Draft apply the amount collected to the client's Prepaid total (requires WorldPay processing)
There is an option to include taxes in the pre-paid account credit. THE INCLUDE TAXES CHECK MARK WILL APPLY THE TAXES TO THE CLIENT'S PRE-PAID ACCOUNT, BUT THE SALON WILL STILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING THEM.
