Once you have selected 'BLAZEPAY' you will see another window pop up. This window includes a MANUAL slider that should always default to OFF when your Payments Onboarder configured your shop. Do not turn this slider on, simply click to continue with the payment.

At this point you will see some spinning wheels on the BLAZE app you are using for this transaction, signaling that the connection has been made, and BLAZE is waiting for the customer to complete the payment on the Debit Card terminal. If you look at the Debit Card terminal at this point, you will see that the total has automatically been sent to the terminal and if you decided to allow for tipping on your terminals, there will be tip options available for the customer.

Refunding & Voiding BLAZEPAY Transactions

Currently, the ability to refund back onto the customer's card is still a work in progress, so refunds must happen in cash. If you need to process a refund follow our GUIDE ON REFUNDS.

Once a BLAZEPAY payment has been applied to a transaction, with the exception of a refund it cannot be removed. So if you find yourself in a case where it was applied on accident, perhaps manually, you will need to VOID the transaction and re-ring it. If you need to void a transaction follow our GUIDE ON VOIDS.
