Recording a POSaBIT transaction

POSaBIT is a leader in compliant payment solutions for cannabis retailers. POSaBIT supports PIN debit where available and point-of-banking (also known as cashless ATM) payment methods. The following document walks through a standard POS debit transaction flow for the Flourish / POSaBIT integration.

After you've created your order and fulfilled it, you're ready to check out your customer. 

Submit POSaBIT payment in Flourish POS
  1. In the POS, navigate to Queue > In-Store > Check Out.
  2. Locate the order, then click the Checkout button.
  3. If the order looks correct, click the Pay button.
  4. After selecting the Till, select POSaBIT.
If you see OFFLINE next to the Payment Terminal, this means the connection between the terminal and the POSaBIT gateway is offline. If the POSaBIT terminal is powered on, to recheck the connectivity status of the terminal to the POSaBIT Gateway in Flourish, click the green circle arrow next to the Payment Terminal. If the terminal status still shows OFFLINE after a refresh, please contact POSaBIT for support.
  1. Select Payment Terminal if needed. Learn more about setting up Payment Terminals here.
  2. Type the POSaBIT Amount or click on the amount under Remaining.
  3. Click .

  1. "Submit Payment" sends the selected total to POSaBIT, and you will see the following pop-up in the Flourish POS.
Complete POSaBIT purchase at terminal

After the Flourish POS submits the payment to the POSaBIT terminal, you complete the purchase using the payment terminal. The following will show you the steps to complete the purchase using the paired payment terminal.

The total will be rounded to the nearest $10 and include a pre-set Non-Cash Assessment charge of $3 - $3.50 (depending on the agreement made with the merchant).

For Example:
If the total within Flourish is $97.23, that will automatically be rounded up to $100 and passed to the payment terminal. 
The merchant fee will then automatically get applied to the payment terminal, showing the total purchase amount of $103.50.

  1. The terminal user will see the transaction on the terminal.
  2. The terminal user must then press the green “>” button in the top right-hand corner to continue.
  3. Once the green “>” button has been selected, the customer will be prompted to insert/swipe their card.
Note: The chip reader is on the right-hand side of these debit terminals.

  1. The terminal will jump to the purchase complete page after the customer has inserted or swiped their card and inputted their PIN. On this page, the customer can select the type of receipt they want or “No Receipt.”

  1. Once the purchase reaches the complete page, the “POS Tender Amount” is sent to the Flourish POS. This action updates the POS Tender Amount to include any change to the customer.
For Example: If the initial total passed from Flourish was $97.23, which was then rounded up to $100, POSaBIT will be returning the following to Flourish:
* POS Tender Amount = $100 (The initial total plus change)
* Initial Total = $97.23
* Change = $2.77
