Name. The last name of the guest.

First Name. The first name of the guest.

SV Interface. Select the down arrow to choose the Stored Value Interface that is being used.

Stored Value. Select this check box to indicate whether this is a stored value (prepaid) account or not. If left unchecked, an RFID band will be created so this check box must be selected if not used in conjunction with RFID.

Note: If the account number entered is attached to a gift card, then this check box will automatically be selected.

Amount. The value of the account. If paying by a gift card, then this column is displayed after the Balance column and enter the amount to apply to the gift card.

Account Number. The account number.

Balance. Available when paying with a gift card from the Billing screen, after the account number has been entered and the column has been tabbed out of, this field will automatically be populated with the balance that is on the gift card.

Edit. Access the Stored Value Account Maintenance screen to edit additional account details.

OK. Save the information.

Note: When paying with a gift card in a cross-currency situation, upon selecting the OK button, the SVS Interface will verify that a currency conversion is needed and will perform the conversion at the time the gift card authorization is processing. After a successful SVS redemption and the conversion has completed, then a message will display notifying the user and guest of the amount redeemed, balance on card, card currency, and the conversion rate used.


The information displayed will also be saved with the transaction in order for it to be printed on the folio in the Reference field, along with the last 4 digits of gift card number.
