You can also add some options to this product. By options we mean sauces, complementary products, etc.
Here is an exemple with some sauces.
First, create a new options group:
If you check “at least one option is required” the user will have to choose from the sauces you offer when he orders the product. He will not be able to order without choosing one of these options (that’s useful when you have many sizes for a product, as we will see next).

The Progressive Loyalty feature will allow you to launch a loyalty program and reward your customers as they buy from you.
On the same loyalty card, you can setup several rewards and the customer will be able to redeem them as enough points are accumulated.
With a powerful reporting engine, you can easily identify your most loyal customers and how many
rewards are used. You will also get an estimate on the sales that the loyalty program is generating you.
Finally, you can track the employees who validate the points and the rewards so that fraud is under control.
Once you’ve add the feature to the app, the setup of the Progressive Loyalty feature is comprised of some steps. You’ll need to access the Loyalty Cards tab in order to begin this process.
The first step is to create a loyalty card. You’ll need to name your card – this will be used on the reporting but won’t be seen by the users -, set the number of points for the card, define whether this is a unique card or if it will be reused once completed and, finally, set the approximate amount that each point is worth in sales – this will be used in the reporting to estimate the worth of each client.
Once you’ve created the Loyalty Card, the second step is to create the Rewards. Please note that any reward that you make active/inactive (by clicking on the or sign) will be immediately active/inactive on the card.
You can create a Reward by clicking on the sign. You’ll need to define the reward name and enter a description – both these fields will be visible to the user -, set how many points are needed to redeem this reward and you can upload specific images for it. The Inactive Reward image will appear when the user still doesn’t have enough points to redeem it. Once the user has enough points to redeem a reward, the Active Reward image will be shown. Similarly, the Redeem button on the app for this reward will change color. If you don’t place any images here, the default ones that are uploaded under the Options tab will be used.
Please note that, once a reward is created, you’ll need to activate it before it will be displayed on the card.
With the Progressive Loyalty feature you’ll be able to validate points remotely, you don’t need to have physical access to the mobile phone to do it. This is ideal for take-out businesses or any type of phone ordering services. You can still validate points using the customer’s mobile phone by creating employee pin-codes. Once you access the feature, an employee will be automatically created using your MAB user – please make sure you have filled out your user details (first and last names), otherwise the user will not be automatically created. This employee cannot be deleted but you’ll need to define a 4-digit pin-code in order to validate the points on the card.
The users show on the Manual Validation list are the ones who have signed up for this App. They’ll be added to the module automatically as they sign-up.
To validate the points via your MAB, you’ll need to select the user and click on stamp icon . You’ll need to set the number of points that you’d like to validate and enter the 4 digit pin-code that you’ve set.
Once the card and rewards are setup, you can decide which layout to apply to your loyalty card – these are optional but will allow you to customize your loyalty card to your design needs.
The last step is to set default options – these are optional but will allow you to customize your loyalty card to your design needs.
Additionally, you’ll be able to control if employees are able to validate 1 or more points at a time. If “validate 1 point only” is not selected, the employee at the store will be able to validate several points through the App at once.
If the “import sales from Commerce module” box is selected, you’ll be able to define a conversion rule for the sales that are done. You should define a rule with the lowest amount of sales you want to convert into points. Only full integer points will be convert, not decimals are calculated for points. This means that, if the rule is to convert 1 point for each 10€ in sales, then on an order of 11€, the user will get 1 point. The same if the order if for 19€. The points conversion only occurs once an hour whenever the order status is marked to “Done”.
The analytics of this feature have been created to help businesses identify their most loyal customer and cater to them.
On the customer data dashboard, you’ll be able to get the number of rewards used per each customer, the number of points that were validated and the number of visits that have been made by this customer to the store. Please note that we’re making an assumption that each point validated was the result of a visit to the store. However, if points are validated several times within a 2-hour period, we will only count 1 visit. The total revenue is calculated using the estimate value for 1 point when set when creating the card and multiplying it by the number of points validated.
Loyalty control dashboard allows you to check how many points the employees are validating and what is the average for all employees. This will allow you to spot deviations from the average to quickly investigate suspicious cases.
Both the Customer and Loyalty Control Dashboards (figures 3.1 and 3.2) allow you do drill down to a more detailed report to show you individual customer or employee activity. Just click on the customer or employee name to obtain more detailed information.

The cases in which users can be marked with an X in the list to send the message to specific users are:

NB: Offline mode is disabled by default. For more info please contact Migastone Support
The Offline Mode is not really a feature, but it allows your users to download the contents of the app in their phones so that they can access it later, even if they have no connection. Let’s see how this works.When the users download the app and open it for the first time, they will be asked if they want to download the contents to access it when they are offline. If they do it, they will be able to access all the contents that are in the app even when there is no connection.
But you have to know that everything that is linked to an external website will not be downloaded, like for example Youtube videos, Instagram galleries, or Facebook pages. As you have to get the content from outside the app, you need an internet connection to access it.
With this feature, you will be able to create a list of geolocated places.
It will display all the places on a map, or, if the user opens the sheet of a particular location, he will be able to get the path and directions to this location, by walking or driving. The listing of the locations is sort according to the distance between the locations and the user, from closest to farthest.
After having added the feature to your app, click on the to add a place to the list.
For each place, you must fill the Title field. You can optionally insertt the subtitle and the images to be enabled using the desired display options. It is also possible to assign tags and categories to the place (if previously inserted by the appropriate “Categories” tab).
Then, you have to enter an address for this location, or its coordinates. You can add a label for this address but it’s not mandatory.
If you check the “Display address” checkbox, the address will be shown in the sheet of the location. If you check the “display location button” checkbox, it will display the button that will allow the user to see the path to this location.
Then you can add other sections like text, images, photo gallery, videos or links.
Settings & Options
From this tab you can set some options for displaying the “Places” page in the app:
Once you have set up the list, it could look like that:
The location sheet:
QR Code Scan

Basically, a QR code is data encrypted as an image. When you use your QR Code Scan, it will get you to the content it is linked to. It can be a specific url outside the app, an image, text or anything.
For those who don’t know what is a QR Code, it looks like this:
Note that each and every QR Code is related to a specific content.
This feature will allow you to create discount coupons that will be unlocked by scanning a specific QR Code. Once unlocked, the customer can use the discount when he wants.
That means the coupon will not appear in the app for the user until he has scanned the QR Code (When you will add a coupon code you will not see it until you’ve scanned the QR code). As a business owner you create a QR coupon, and you obtain a QR Code. You can distribute this QR code on your website or in a newsletter, etc to reward specific actions, or just show it to premium clients so that they can flash it. Once scanned the coupon will appear in their apps.

Once you’ve set your coupon as you want, please print the qr code. You can display the qr code anywhere you want to allow the users of the app to scan it with their QR Code Scan and to benefit from your QR Coupon!

The cases in which users can be marked with an X in the list to send the notification to specific users are:
1. The user account was created by the MAB (Management APP).
2. The user has logged out from his account.
3. The user has not given the go ahead to the notifications. This possibility is very rare if you have done a good job cashier indicating who will receive notifications of exclusive offers, usually the rate of approval notification is very high.

Case 3: Send a notification to users with specific topics
This option is active only in combination with “Topics” feature: see the specific page.
With the “Radio” feature you can add a radio streaming inside your app.It’s very simple to set up but you need to have the good streaming URL. Here is how a good streaming URL looks like for our “Radio” feature:Example of good URLs for streaming:
Your URL mustn’t end by “listen.pls” or “listen.m3u”, etc.
Meaning that if your URL is http://220.127.116.11:6325/listen.pls, you need to just keep http://18.104.22.168:6325/.
Note that sometimes you will need to add “/;” at the end of your URL to make it work both on Android and iOS, for example you will add to add the url like this http://22.214.171.124:6325/;
Since Apple is requiring apps to use IPV6 networks, streams URL needs a domain name and not an ipV6 to work properly on iOS : http://mystream.com:8010 rather than http://126.96.36.199:8010/
For the widest possible compatibility, streaming must be in mp3 format. If streaming source format is aac, it may not be supported by devices with Android operating system.
Then fill in the fields with the appropriate info, like in this example:
Then you just have to click on “save”, and you’ve just set up a radio streaming in your app.
Note: The AACP/AAC+ audio format is not supported by Mozilla Firefox web browser. If the Radio feature does not work, check that you are not trying to open a AAC+ stream with Firefox. It works perfectly with Chromium/Chrome.
This feature allows you to integrate feeds from blogs or news websites either from the business for which you’re creating the application, or other sources in relation with the business, or both. You can create as many feeds as you want.Here is how it works:It doesn’t matter if you know the feed link you want to integrate or not.Just enter a title for your feed and then the url of the website from which you want to extract the feed. Click ok. If there are some feeds for this website, Migastone will display them and let you choose the one you want.To enter a new feed, click on and repeat the process above.In a second case, you can just enter the name of the site you want to extract the RSS feed. Migastone will automatically scan this website to find the RSS feeds on this one.

With RealTime Chat feature you can incorporate a complete Chat system in your Migastone App. Create public chatrooms and let your users create their own private chatrooms and chat with each others.
Send Text, Image and soon videos and audio Messages.
Add friends for chatting, block/unblock users, instant messaging, one-to-one chat and group chat.
Setting chat functions from the app control panel
From the app control panel, you can enable the function by creating one or more public chatrooms. These chatrooms are visible to all app users from their smartphone. Users wishing to participate in the discussion should register and use a nickname.
Here are the main steps:
1. We can create different CHATROOMS each with its own TITLE and DESCRIPTION.
In the example below we have created two chatrooms by clicking on :
2. Now in the APP, the user can register in the REALTIME CHAT and enable notifications by clicking on the bell icon, at the right top of the screen
3. With the bell icon FULLY COLORED you will receive notification by EVERY person who writes in REALTIME CHAT.
Private chatrooms and chat with friends
In addition to being able to participate in the public discussions set by the manager through the control panel, app users will be able to create private chatrooms or one-to-one chat with their friends.
To manage these options, access the Chat function from your smartphone. On the top right corner of the main page, there is a three point vertically displayed button. By tapping this, the following menu appears:
NB: Before manage friends, you must log in at least once to a public chat. Before you can write a message you will be prompted to choose a nickname to be identified in the chats and you can also choose the notification settings.
Join Private Chatroom
All users who want to talk privately with each other will have to type the same identical name. Suppose, for example, that users have decided to use the “Private” name: to enter that chatroom all users will have to type exactly this name (Capitals Included).
After logging in, users will view this chat room from their smartphone in the “Chatrooms” list on the Chat main page.
NB: In private chatrooms you can not enable notifications (regardless of the status of the “bell” icon)
With this option you can create one-to-one chat. The user who wishes to open a discussion with another user exclusively must first send a friend request, identifying the recipient by nickname or email (the email that this user used to sign in to the app). If the recipient accepts the request by accessing this same menu from his smartphone, both will display his / her name in the “Friends” list on the main page of the Chat function.
Remember to act on the “bell” icon, as explained above, if you want to enable notification:

To add images to an existing gallery, open the “Manage” section and click the green button that has the number of images, at the gallery you want to edit:
From the window that will open, use the “Browse” button to load more images. To clear, click the X icon at the image you want to delete.
With the Loyalty feature you’ll be able to create a loyalty’s punch or stamp card. It means there will be a reward after a number of purchases. For example “one burger for ten bought”.
To validate a loyalty point the business owner will have to enter a four-digit password. As with loyalty stamp card, the client has to show his card to the retailer for stamping it, with our digital loyalty card, the client has to show his smartphone and the retailer has to enter his four-digit password to validate a point.
Loyalty card creation
Here are the things required to create a loyalty card:
- the total number of points
- the reward
- what’s the condition to validate a point
Here is an example:
NOTE:You can limit the use of the Loyalty Card to only once per customer. In that case, remember to select the appropriate option.
You can customize the appearance of points on your card, with a small logo of your business or image that best suits your needs. You can use an image corresponding to the active point (validated) and another image corresponding to the inactive point. Click the “Point active” or “Point inactive” button and follow the steps to upload the image. Here’s an example in app:
Four-digit passwords creation
It is possible to create a password for each employee. Like this it will be more easy to verify who validates what.

The loyalty card in the application
To validate a point, the client “touches” a point and shows his smartphone to the retailer:
The retailer chooses the number of points and enters his password :
NOTE:It is not possible to edit or delete a loyalty card. Why? Because it works like a real punch card, when a user gets a punch card with a particular offer and begins to validate some points on it, it can’t be changed (meaning that it would be too easy to attract customers with a big offer and then to change it for a lower one while they already have some points validated on it).
But it’s possible to create a new card with a new offer. All the customers who have already validated points on the old card, will keep using this card until it is completely validated, and then they will get the new card. The customers who haven’t validated points yet on the old card, will get the new one instead.
This feature allows you to create a list of TOPICS that the users of the app will be able to select, according to their interests, and then only be updated on the specific topics.

Invite A Friend
This feature introduces a mechanism in Migastone apps that allows users to invite friends to get points, through interaction with the Card Progressive Loyalty Card. In addition, the function will automatically generate a reference code that will be sent correctly with which you can redeem points of advantage after downloading the app. The function is available for iOS and Android, allows you to send the message via Facebook, Whatsapp, email, etc.
After adding the feature to the app, click on to open the settings panel:
Click on :
In particular, it will be necessary to insert
- A description and an image to illustrate the page on the app
- The message to be shared with invited users
- The number of points that will be assigned on the Progressive Loyalty Card
- The URLs of the stores to download the app
NB: in order to be able to automatically assign the points, the Progressive Loyalty function must be inserted and configured in the app.
How to send invitation and redeem points
The user will send invitations to friends by accessing the “Invite a Friend” page in their app by clicking on the “Share” button.
The user who receives the invitation message, after downloading the app, must enter the code by clicking the “Enter your friend’s invitation code” button, which is always on the “Invite A Friend” page of the app. In this way both users will redeem the points of the Progressive Loyalty Card.
MIGAFUNNEL – Automatic Push Notification Service
Migafunnel is a module that allows to send automatic pushes when a specific event/trigger is happening.
It is an innovative tool that is perfect for Direct Response Marketing, for example delivery an high value content with the APP and later followup the users with special contents delivered by push periodically and automatically, for example every week.
The events/triggers supported until now are:
- First registration of an user inside the app
- First Loyalty Card point validated from the user
- First Order made from the user
- First Coupon used from the user
When one of this events/trigger is happening we are able to start a FUNNEL OF PUSH, a sequence of unlimited number of pushes scheduled to be sent automatically to the user.
Every push has a delay of hours or days from the previously push selected.
Is possible to setup a welcome push immediately after the registration of a new user and schedule every 7 days an automatic push sent to the user for an entire year!!
Follow the instruction to understand how to setup your FUNNEL OF PUSHES
- When you activate Migafunnel the function add to the menu of your APP a page that has the target to allow the final user of the APP to UNSUBSCRIBE from the automatic push service. Here in the screenshot an example.
The first thing to do is click on SETTING and modify the DESCRIPTION. This description should explain the user that the APP he downloaded has an automatic push funnel, if the user want can disable any automatic push by clicking the option in the page. He will disable only the automatic push but the manual important one sent from App Owner still active.
- After you set the correct description, you can select ADD NEW FUNNEL as the picture on point 1 above.
- You will see a new page, as the screenshot below, where is possible to add the following details :
- TITLE, is the name of your funnel, useful to find it in the list of funnels you have (yes, you can set many push funnels)
- DESCRIPTION, is a small description that allow you to remember what is doing this funnel.
- TRIGGER, this is the event WHEN the funnel should start, select the one you need from the drop menu.
- STATUS, allow you to ACTIVATE or DISABLE the funnel. When you disable a funnel all the new users will be excluded from the funnel, all the old users will continue to receive the pushes scheduled. In other words the DISABLE is effective only for new users
- Set the first PUSH, as the picture on point 3 add these new details:
- TITLE, this is the title of the first push you are setting. This first push will be sent after the trigger/event happens according with the delay set (see later)
- MESSAGE, this is the text message of your push. Don’t add a long text, remember it is a notification not a letter 🙂
- OPEN A FEATURE or A CUSTOM URL, this option allows to bring the user to an URL or a specific page of your APP by clicking the button VISIT of your PUSH notification.
- PUSH START, this is the delay that you set from the event/trigger of this funnel. You can set SOON AS POSSIBLE, HOURS DELAY or DAYS DELAY as you want. The first push will start for example 1 hour later the trigger “first registration of the user”
- IMAGE, you can upload an image that is showed with the push.
- As you can see in this screenshot we set the first push with all the details required
- Now you can start to add more pushes, the concept is that every push is linked to a previously one with a “delay” set. You can choose any of the previously push as a trigger.
In this screenshot you see the ADD NEW PUSH tab
As you can see in the next screenshot, START AFTER is a menu that allows to select one of the previously push available. In this screenshot you see only one push available, the first one.
After selected the START AFTER push, we set a delay of 1 day, in other words this new push starts exactly 1 day after the first push is sent, as you can see in the screenshot below
- All the push notifications scheduled per user are saved in the principal PUSH NOTIFICATION history of push that you normally find in the PUSH NOTIFICATION feature of your APP.
- When an user UNSUBSCRIBE from the push notification service, all the pushes scheduled to reach this user are automatically deleted.
- Every time a PUSH is deleted from a funnel all the scheduled pushes related this specific push are deleted.
- You can delete a push funnel when inside it there is the FIRST PUSH only, so if you want to delete a funnel first delete all the other push stored.

With this feature it is possible to profile users using additional custom fields such as tax code, telephone number, birthday, etc.
Once registered in the app, the user will be automatically redirected to the Profile page to fill in the required additional data.
After adding the Profiles feature in the app, click on to make the configuration:
ADD SECTIONS AND ADDITIONAL FIELDS
At this point you need to create at least one section. If necessary, create more sections to divide the fields of our form (for example: personal data in a section, the choice of services in another section, etc.).
Click on , type the name and click on . In our case we have included only one to illustrate how it works.
To insert another section just type name and confirm, repeat the operation to insert all the desired sections:
Within the section we will now add the fields we need. Click on to add a field . This window will appear:
Give a name to the field that will be displayed in the form and choose whether it should be mandatory. Then select what type of field to use.
To see what are the types of fields that we can choose to position the mouse for a few seconds on the icon: a description of the type of field will appear.
NB: the type of field called “User Roles” will allow the integration of the Padlock pro feature.
In most cases it is advisable to enter all the desired fields in a single section. However, if the additional fields are numerous or have different purposes / types, the form can be divided into several sections. In this way the page will be more understandable and easy to fill in for users.
Once you have entered all the desired sections and fields, you must indicate an email address in which to receive requests received from users.
This feature allows app owners to lock pages or group of pages based on different user roles.
Integrated with Profile feature, allow users to select Role on Signup. (ATTENTION: the assignment of the individual user’s access to the protected folder or page must always be set by the administrator, based on the role of the user who has registered).
Exemple: consider an App for school and you have 3 types of users here.
You create a Role for each one by creating a Folder and Assigning pages you want them to see.
Now you have to assign each user a Role in Padlock Pro Backend Admin view by selecting one of that folder. that’s it.
When user logs into the app using Padlock pro menu he will be automatically redirected to Folder/Role assigned to them.
Please make sure you select the Folders/Roles menus from Padlock Pro settings so that no logged users can’t see them.
- Protect / Lock single / multiple menus / features
- Assign a Single page or Multiple pages to a User
- Enterprise level access for each departments etc.
- If you flag a user [ can access the pages locked by the “Locker” ] he becomes front end super admin who will have access to everything and other users will still have limited access based on their roles set by Padlock pro feature.
What this module can’t do :
- Users can’t be automatically assigned to any role. App admin has to assign role/page to each user you want to have access to protected pages.
- Users have to self register or be added by admin and then will be visible in Login Redirect Module for assigning a role.

The Import/Export module will allow you to import an existing database of users and
generate a welcome email. The module currently supports the import of two file formats: csv and xlsx.
This module will also allow you to export your application’s users. Open the module’s page from your MAB menu Modules > Import/Export users:
Please make sure you download a sample of the structure of the file before you attempt to
import your file. Your user database needs to be properly formatted, namely some fields will
have to be added, so that the import can occur successfully. The column order and number need
to be respected.
When you import your existing user database, you can choose to send an invitation email to your
users. If you choose this option, you’ll be able to create an email informing your users that an
account has been created for them, letting them know their password and providing the
download links to the App. You’ll be able to dynamically insert the fields that follow to populate
your email Subject and Body: [firstname], [last-name], [app-name], [password], [email].

perfect way to create an account and invite existing users to the App.
Exporting your application’s user database is quite simple. You’ll only need to press the export
button and a csv file with be generated with all the user information.
The feature Smart ADS will allow you to display targeted, full screen Ads to your App users based on time of the day, day of the week, operating system and App version.
You can use this module to notify your users of new features, promotions or, even, to force them to update the App to the latest version.
The SmartAds Module requires little configuration. The first step should be to make the feature inactive so that the icon doesn’t display on the App. Attention: Turn OFF all campaigns before sending the App for approval to the Apple and Google Play stores. This may cause the App to be rejected.
Creating a new capain
The first step is to create a new campaign. Currently, two types of ads are supported: image and text. You’ll begin by naming your campaign, this is just for your own reference and will not be shown to the users.
If you choose to create a text ad, you’ll need to fill in the text on the text box and select the background color of the Ad. Next, if you want to make this Ad clickable, you’ll need to add a URL and the label for the button – it can be “UPGRADE NOW!” or “click here”. It’s up to you to decide on the label. If you don’t insert a label, the Ad will still be clickable but no label will be displayed. You’ll be able to define the colors for the button using the color settings below. You’ll also be able to define the placement height of the button on the Ad.
If you decide to create an image Ad instead, don’t fill out the ad text box or select a background color. Simply upload the image and, should you want to make it clickable, add the URL. You can either add the button on the image or fill out the settings for the button. If you want to use an Ad to force the users to upgrade your App on the Google and Apple store, you’ll need to select Hide Close Button option. This will disable the close button and the users will have to click on the upgrade button.
The second configuration step of the campaign is to define the targeting criteria. If you don’t complete this step, the campaign will not be displayed to anyone. This is a mandatory step in the configuration of the campaign. Here you’ll be able to select the start and end date of the campaign, the time of the day and the day of the week when it should be displayed. You’ll also need to select the device you’d like to display the campaign to. If you’re displaying an upgrade message, you’ll need to create two separate campaign, one for Android and another for iOS, with the different links to the Google and Apple store. Lastly, you can select the version of the App that you’re looking to target. When you select version 1.2, you’ll be targeting all App version before 1.2.
It’s possible to find out how many impressions and clicks where made on each campaign. This report is accessible from the main menu under Modules > Campaign Analytics.
User Frontend Interface
Below you can find the user frontend interface screens.
With this feature it is possible to buy pre-paid coupons packages for any type of service, offered at a promotional price (for example: 10 dinners with standard price of 200 euros, at a discounted price of 150 euros).
First of all, in order to receive prepaid booklets, you need to add the “Enterprise Payment” feature in your app. From the configuration page of that feature you can currently activate the following payment methods:
- Cash – payment in cash
- PayPal – to enable this type of payment you must first configure the parameters of the PayPal account to which you will receive payments.
WARNING: the payment options “Bank Transfer” and “Stripe” are not available at the moment. They will be usable soon.
In order to Enterprise Payments works properly with Carnet Coupons, On Settings tab:
- make sure to select “No Link” from dropdown menu
- On State Name type this: carnet-payment-response
- On Return value ID type this: 5742
It is recommended to keep the “Enterprise Payment” disabled: payments will still be available but in this way you will not have a superfluous item in the menu.
Once the “Enterprise Payment” feature (appropriately configured as indicated in the previous paragraph) and the “Carnet Copupons” function are present in the app, we can proceed to insert the carnets that users can purchase.
Simply click on icon at the “Carnets Management” section for the first entry. For the subsequent ones, click on the button in this section.
Fill in all the required fields to configure the carnet:
In addition to Name, Description, Image, it is recommended to pay attention to the following options:
- Standard Price / Discounted Price – The first is the whole reference price to show to customers, while the second is the promotional price that will be required to purchase the carnet
- Number of coupons included – The number of coupons (services / inputs / etc) that the customer will purchase through the prepaid carnet
- Carnet expiration – possible end date of the offer (can also be unlimited)
- Coupons expiration – any date by which the coupons will be usable (can also be unlimited)
- Status – the carnet can be enabled or disabled even temporarily according to the needs
From this section it is possible to check the carnet purchased by the customers and confirm the payments.
If the user makes the online payment (PayPal, Stripe) the purchase status is automatically set as “Paid”. If payment is made in cash, the manager must confirm the payment, either from the app directly on the customer’s smartphone or in this section.
Click on “Change to Paid” (green icon on Action column) to confirm payment. Vice versa, if the status is “Paid” you can change the status by click on “Change to Pending” (yellow icon on Action column).
You can also assign the status “Void” to cancel in payment (red icon with X). From this status it will be possible to restore the “Paid” or “Pending” status.
In order to use carnet coupons it is necessary that the manager (or an operator in charge) insert his pin from the client’s smartphone. In this section it is possible to define the operators involved in the validation and enter the corresponding passwords.
NB: the PIN number of the employee will also be required to put the carnet in the “Paid” status in the event that this operation is carried out directly on the customer’s smartphone.
In this section you can enter Terms and Conditions and set the automatic messages sent by the Carnet Coupons feature.
To customize the messages already set by default, select the type of message desired from the drop-down menu and edit the corresponding text field. Use the Tags available for the parameterized fields (Name, Surname, Title of the carnet, etc.).
It is possible to enable the sending of the CC messages to your email address. Finally, customize the icons that illustrate the purchased, availables and pending parnets on the page of the app.
Carnet Coupons feature in the app
Here is an example of how the main page of the Carnets appears in the app:
- Buy Carnet – shows the carnets that the user can buy
- Carnet Availables – shows the carnet purchased by the user. This page will show only the carnet that are paid.
- Pending Carnets – shows the carnet purchased by the user but whose payment is not yet confirmed.
NB: if the user makes an online payment (PayPal, Stripe) that is successful, the carnet will automatically be in “Paid” status. If the user makes a cash payment or bank transfer, the manager of the app will change the status to “Paid” as explained in the previous paragraph.
