Receiving payments by credit card or EFTPOS

Some sections of the University have been authorised to accept payments by credit card.

Credit cards payments are processed using these methods:

Electronic terminals

Electronic credit card terminals can accept major credit and debit cards.

The financial unit logs all credit card sales on a Cash Analysis Sheet.  At the end of the day, the financial unit prints a Close of day sheet from the terminal. The financial unit forwards the Cash Analysis Sheet and the Close of Day printout to the Cashier.

Swipe machines

Swipe machines accept Bankcard, MasterCard and Visa cards. The cardholder's copy produced is the payer's receipt.

The cashier's office has several swipe machines available for University use for conferences and so forth.

The financial unit fills in a Merchant Summary form (supplied by the bank) and forwards it with the Processor copy to the cashier in the special envelope.

Manual processing

The payer fills in and signs an Authority for payment by credit card (Word) form.

The financial unit fills in an Order Summary (carbon-less form supplied by bank) and forwards the white copy of it with the payers' forms to the cashier daily.
