Before we get to the fun stuff please take the time to watch this video especially if you are currently processing your credit card transactions with a Pax terminal:
coreCLEAR Merchant Processing

new feature Manual Card Entry Support
If you are using the coreCLEAR gateway, you can now setup a register to process manual transactions (helpful if you take orders via the phone).
To setup a Manual Register click the Locations menu option under Inventory (Left side of your screen). Click on the location you are in and then click the Merchant Processing tab and add a register. Set the register name and then select Card Not Present as the Card Reader Type.
When processing a sale on the manula register when selecting credit card as the payment type, you will be prompted to enter the card information.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you have a customer selected for the sale and that their address matches the billing address of the credit card.
new feature exciting! Credit Card Terminal Settings
If you are using the CLEAR 8500 or CLEAR 6200 (pictured above) then this news will be exciting. Currently these devices can display banner ads, a video, they will show your customer the items that are being rung up in the sale and now you can request additional information from your customer including their name, email address and you can even ask them to join your loyalty program or if they are already signed up the terminal will display their current point balance.
An additional option lets you prompt the customer for any missing information that you don't have on file including their email address or phone number.
To activate any of these options, click the locations screen and under the Merchant Processing tab you will see these new configuration options:
If you do light manufacturing of products then item assemblies is what you want to use to build your assemblies. In short an assembly defines the recipe for making a product (raw materials) and a build is the action of producing the product (finished good).
We've made a few improvements with item assemblies:
improvement On hand and Committed Clearly Displayed
Showing committed is helpful because it can help with planning your production and material needs, since what is committed reflects what's on order.
improvement Choose Your Columns
Similar to the other screens in coreSTORE you can now choose from many different columns to display, and you can reorder those columns.
new feature Ability to Choose a Different Assembly Item
The assembly item is the finished product that is being assembled can be changed by clicking the Edit button. This is very helpful when cloning an assembly.
improvement Item Kits
Item Kits can be set to a $0 price.
The manufacturer screen has been completely revamped and modeled after the supplier screen. You can now track more information on a manufacturer including their web site, logo, and for our FFL's out there you can enter and validate their FFL#. You can also choose what categories the manufacturer represents, and add a full HTML description. You are welcome to guess why we did this... best answer submitted in the Send Us Feedback box will get a 💵 $100 Amazon Gift Card 💵, make sure you include your email address with your answer so we know who to send the card to (yes I'm just curious to see if I still have your attention).
improvement When Enable PDF Receipts is enabled under Store Config, then the PO and Receiving receipts will be emailed with a PDF attachment.
improvement Lifetime memberships will now show up in Blue and won't appear like they are expired.
