Payment Terminal Tipping

  • A tipping interface is now available for the payment terminals on the Handpoint app.
  • To use this feature, ensure the terminal is on version 2.13.0 or greater. To check/upgrade:
    • In the Handpoint app, go to Settings (cogwheel) --> Device --> Update.
    • Restart the app. This means closing (not just minimizing) and reopening.
    • Go back to Settings --> Device and at the bottom the version should say 2.13.0 or greater.
  • The tip scale and messaging will be the same as configured on the Location dashboard.

  • You are now able to create a new POS Display which will allow you to easily navigate in server mode with a pin, avoiding the cumbersome login/out process. 
  • Users with the server permission can be assigned a PIN from the Users dashboard.
  • The PIN will never be displayed to anyone other than the server. The PIN will be sent in an SMS directly to the number on file. Once sent, the PIN cannot be retrieved. If it is lost it must be reset from the dashboard.
  • If PIN entry is failed 5 times in a row the device will be deactivated and require reactivation from the manager dashboard.
  • The server will have access to all normal ordering functions except they will NOT be able to pay with their own payment methods.

From the Users, the dashboard assigns users the server permission and a PIN.


Visit the Displays dashboard and select Add New Display System


In the dialog, select POS as the display type and name your display.


On the POS device visit https://gotab.io/displays and select POINT OF SALE


Activate the device using the activation code sent to the manager (this is exactly the same as the KDS setup).


Once activated, the POS will be locked to the ordering flow and show a PIN input for servers to sign in.


After entering a valid PIN the ordering flow functions as normal, with the ability to switch users any time from the hamburger menu or the button shown below.


After a short period of inactivity, the system will show a notification letting the server know that their session will end soon. They have the opportunity to continue or end. Ending and taking no action will result in that server being logged out and the PIN input screen will be displayed again.
