    What is the "Force" mode on your quick reference card? What is different from the "Sale" mode?

    Force is a type of transaction that allows you to process/re-process a sale that has a pending approval code.

    There are also times when a sale requires an approval from the voice authorization number (Message: Call ND or Authorization Needed). In this instance once you received an approval code from the voice authorization number you would use the Force option to complete the sale.

    I'm using touchtone capture until my machine arrives. What does cvv2/cvc2/cid value mean? Also, what are transaction codes 12, 13 and what does AVS mean. Any list of codes or anymore information that you can provide would be extremely helpful. Thanks in advance and happy holidays! Christopher T. Smith

    CVV2: Card Verification Value
    CVC2: Card Verification Code

    These are the three digit codes printed on the back of credit cards.

    Note that American Express will have a four digit code on the front of the card.

    Transaction Code 12 is for Sale "Card not present". This transaction will prompt you for extra information such as the street number, zip code, and CVV2.

    Transaction Code 13 is Authorization Only. This code simply verifies the card to see if funds are available for use. If you process with this code you will have to be mindful and write down the authorization code that is provided for later use. Once you obtain the authorization code the next step is to run transaction code 3 "Ticket Only".

    Transaction Code 3: The Ticket Only option is used when you have an authorization/approval code for a transaction. These are usually obtained through Transaction Code 13 or if you have ran a sale, but your bank account was not credited for that sale.

    However, you should always verify with Terminal Support when to use Transaction Code 13 and 3.

    how long does charging my VX670 take and how long does it last when fully charged. There is a flashing light to the left of the screen; does this mean it is charging?

    It takes a full 8 hours to charge the battery. It should last 16 hours (stand-by) depending on how many sales you run. If you are running multiple sales one after another the battery will deplete faster.

    The light left of the screen has a few different meanings; charging, charged, low battery, paper out.
