ShipRite™ Software
Support Services: Lynk Credit Card Processing

This information is for the proper use and installation of Lynk Systems and to enable embedded credit card processing in ShipRite V10 Global Connect. This document, which was attached to the latest revision of the ShipRite v10. Lynk Systems, is supported in this version and can be used and installed as follows:

A. INSTALLATION

There are two important files that are contained in the C:\Shiprite folder that will allow the Lynk Systems to operate correctly. They are as follows.

Lynk Channel.dll
registerLynk.bat

Both of these files will be in the C:\shiprite\ folder on the Shiprite PC. If you are running a network, you will find the above two files in the C:\Shiprite folder on the server. If you are going to use the Lynk Credit card processing on the workstations as well as the server, you will need to copy the above two files to the C:\Shiprite folder on each machine you will be running credit card processing and install as shown below.

There are two ways to ensure that that Lynk Systems COM object is installed correctly:

      1. RegisterLynk.bat: This is a simple batch file that was created to register the .dll file in an easy manner. Simply double click on the registerLynk.bat file, and you should get a message box that looks like the one below.
      2. Manually registering the .dll: The way to manually register the COM object is as follows: Go to “Start,” click on “Run.” Then type the following exactly:

“regsvr32 “C:\shiprite\LynkChannel.dll”

in the run window. Press “Okay.” This should also give the following message box:

lynkSys1

If you have a network setup, you need to double check your firewall settings because this could prevent the program to properly use the LynkChannel.dll and send and receive the necessary information.


B. SET UP

First, you will need to contact Lynk Systems. They will make you a welcome packet and send all of your required information.

This information is then placed in the setup of ShipRite. You can get to this by going to “Setup->General Setup Options.” Click on “Global Features.” There will be an item labeled “Form – Lynk Systems Setup”
lynkSys2
Once all of the information is entered and the Lynk Channel.dll is installed you are ready do begin processing Credit Cards through Lynk in ShipRite.

There are two interesting things to note on the setup:

First of all, there is a field for the host URL for Lynk-Systems. By default, this url should be https://tf.lynk-systems.com/LE0100447Pmt. Please double check that this URL hasn’t changed in the information provided to you by Lynk Systems.

Also, there is a Yes/No Radio button, for Skip CVV2 number. If you do not want to enter a CVV2 number on credit card transactions, you can simply select “Yes.” Now, when you are at the Credit Card screen, the second you finish Swiping a Credit Card it will perform all of the connections and finish the sale for you. If you are manually entering the credit card information then it will be the exact same process.
C. USAGE

With this release there are two ways to use Lynk System to process Credit Card information, Sales and Refunds. Instructions to perform both operations are below.

      1. Sales: The way to do a credit card sale is almost identical to the process that was previously used in ShipRite to denote the difference between Cash, Check and Charge for reporting purposes. Just like before in the Payment Master screen you would need to select “Credit Card” (the credit card icon from the sales screen.) (Consult the manual Chapter 7 section if you can’t make it this far)

After clicking “Credit Card,” you will see the following screen:
lynkSys3

From this screen, if you have a Credit Card reader and it has been configured correctly per the documentation located on the support website, you can simply swipe the card and it SHOULD auto fill this all of the information with the exception of the CVV2 number.

If this information does not load correctly, you can manually change the data and make sure it is correct. Press the “Sales: Connect to Lynk” button. With transactions completed this way, the entire Credit Card track is being sent to Lynk.

(Note that the CVV2 number is found on the back of the credit card, if you look on the back of the card above the signature line, is a 7 digit number. For example “0093 056” , the 0093 corresponds to the last 4 digit number of the credit card. And the three digits, in this case ‘056’ is the CVV2 code.)
(Also note that the CVV2 code for American Express cards is 4 digits long, and is NOT accepted by Lynk Systems. If this is left blank the transaction will still be accepted, but the transaction fee is slightly more. See your Lynk welcome kit, or contact your Lynk representative for more information.)

If you don’t have a Credit Card reader, you can manually enter in all of the above information. The process will go through identically, but once again, a slightly higher transaction fee will apply. (Check your Lynk welcome kit, or contact your Lynk representative.)

You should now see a small simple confirmation message box informing you the the status of the transaction, or whatever corresponding error messages that Lynk Systems may have returned from their servers.

*** The only error that we have received from Lynk, was a “Server Timed Out” error. If this error happens to come up, simply try the transaction again, and it will eventually go through there server. (The most times we have had to try a sale is 2.)

You will now be sent back to the Point-of-Sale and two receipts will be printed. Both will have a place for the customer to sign, and contain the last 4 digits of the credit card and the OrderID (this is important for refunds/credits)

      1. Refunds/Credits: Refunds are done in a simple way. You have to have the exact OrderID from Lynk systems. This number can be found on the original receipt. The refund amount can not be more than the actual charge. The exact steps to perform a refund/credit are as follows:
      • Print the invoice you are refunding.
      • Pull up the customer’s name through customer lookup.
      • Enter “-1,”
      • Hit the “Quantity” button.
      • Enter the amount to be refunded

.

      • Hit the “Change Price” button.
      • Type the in the sku of the item to be refunded.
      • Click on the “Receipt” button. This will bring you to the refund screen:

lynkSys5
These are all required fields:

      • Enter Name & Address
      • Enter Phone#
      • Enter the Invoice #
      • Enter an Explanation in the “Explanation for Return” field.
      • Enter the dollar amount found in the “Amount to be Refunded” field in the “Charge Card Refund” field.

Tabbing out of the “Charge Card Refund” field willl lead you to the following screen:
lynkSys5

Enter in the OrderID, and hit “Refund: Connect to Lynk.” You should now see a small simple confirmation message box informing you the the status of the transaction, or whatever corresponding error messages that Lynk Systems may have returned from their servers.

After entering this you will be taken back to the “Refund Screen.” Choose “Save” when prompted, choose “Preview Report.”

***Note: As it stands now, refund/credits can only be done on accounts due to the inherent security of the point-of-sale. This doesn’t allow you to process transactions of any kind with no sales information, unless it is done on an account.
For making credits to an account:

        • Pull up the customer and then immediately go into the “Payment” screen.
        • First, hit the “Apply Credit to Account” button. You can now enter the amount to be paid on the account in the “Credit Card” field.
        • Next, you can tab out of the field, and to be taken to the normal credit card sale screen. You can then swipe the credit card and finish the transaction.

D. EXTRA
For additional information, you can go to http://lynkvt.com for more information. You can also login to look at the transactions that have gone through the system.

POS: Buttons, POS Panel

How do I setup the Speed SKU buttons in the POS?

You will notice an array of buttons on the right side (4 across and 5 down). These are the programmable Speed SKU’s. They will apply an inventory or non inventory item with the single click of a mouse. From the figure above you will see that some buttons are pre-programmed. It is important to note that you can change, delete or edit these buttons according to personal preference. Group: Let’s add a group of buttons for the COPY department or Profit Center. GROUP: The buttons displayed on the MAIN panel are mostly all groups. If you click on any one of them, an array of 20 more programmable buttons will be displayed. The 20 new buttons can be either Speed SKUs’ or Groups. To add a new group, click on any empty button. The Button Maker opens up. SKU: You can add a SKU item as long as it is already stored in inventory. To add an inventory SKU: Click on any empty button. After the screen opens up. Press Enter in the SKU field. The drop down list of available SKU’s will be displayed. Select your inventory item by double clicking. You can then complete as seen below.There is a lot of room in this POS Screen for more buttons to be programmed. Feel free to set the buttons up according to personal settings. In this example, a button is added that will result in the sale on one roll of tape with a cutter.

  1. Double click in the SKU field and a drop down list of the SKU will appear.
  2. If you know the SKU by heart, you may just type the SKU in the text box and press ENTER. If there is no SKU for the item you wish, click the ADD button. The Inventory manager opens up.
  3. You may then add the item you need.

This Button Maker is three dimensional. After you program a new group, an array of 20 buttons is created behind it. As a matter of convention, always leave the bottom right button as the GO BACK button.Try to keep the buttons grouped together generically, perhaps by department. We have included some of the buttons pre-programmed. It is important to note that you can add, delete or edit these default buttons to suit your needs.

Quickbooks® Integration

PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING….
In order to continue, you must read this disclaimer and notes on integrating Quickbooks™ and ShipRite™ Global Connect. These instructions are for those who will create a NEW Quickbooks Company file. If you already have a Quickbooks Company file you have been using, contact ShipRite™ Support for different instructions. ShipRite™ will only work with Quickbooks Pro 2005 or higher. ShipRite™ will not be responsible for any corruption or loss of data associated with the process of integrating Quickbooks and your ShipRite™ software.

Quickbooks Integration Disclaimer:
October 10, 2016

    1. ShipRite™ Global Connect uses Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) to process drawer closings. This is accomplished by producing a pair of General Journal Entries (GJE). One entry is to debit cash and credit sales and the other entry is to debit sales and then credit the various sales departments. As drawers are closed, the journal entries are batched while waiting for management review and then subsequent posting to QuickBooks.™ It is the store owner’s responsibility to REVIEW the pair of GJE before posting to Quickbooks. ShipRite™ Software, Inc. is NOT responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the entries either in ShipRite, or in Quickbooks.
    2. ShipRite™ is NOT responsible for teaching the store owner, or any of its employees accounting, or how to use Quickbooks. You have the option of learning this on your own, taking a course on Quickbooks or rely on an outside accounting professional. The concepts are not difficult, but are outside the scope of the training provided by ShipRite Software, Inc.
    3. Custom setup of the Chart Of Accounts allows user control over Company Setup. After installation, a default set of accounts is installed. The user may add accounts or remove accounts. Accounts can be added at a later time and the update process can be re-run. The names in QuickBooks must match what is in the ShipRite Quickbooks module.
    4. Transaction logging is created to review the results of postings to QuickBooks. This allows you control over what is posted to Quickbooks.
    5. We have created a new QuickBooks database for easy segregation of transaction processing. If you have trouble, you will only need to send us the Quickbooks database.
    6. All database access is done using the disconnected data model and command level SQL (standard query language) updates. A SQL transaction log records all updates to the databases into a log file. This will tell us what was entered when a problem occurs.
      Prevent updates to the wrong company by checking which QuickBooks company is opened before posting.
    7. ShipRite™ will not be responsible for any corruption or loss of data associated with the process of integrating Quickbooks and your ShipRite™ software.

QuickBooks Pro Desktop Software Integration (Please note that these instructions are NOT for QuickBooks ONLINE
Where To Load Quickbooks: If you have more than one computer running ShipRite™ Global Connect, determine where you will be doing your accounting work with Quickbooks. Most users with multiple POS will have a back-office computer. (For security purposes, it is not recommended to have QB on any POS computer that your employees have access to.) ShipRite must be installed on the accounting computer. Make sure that ShipRite is properly networked on all computers as per our networking instructions. The posting to Quickbooks after closing a drawer must be done from ShipRite on the same computer.

Install QuickBooks on the designated computer. After installing QuickBooks, DO NOT create a company profile.
Download the QuickBooks Integration Package and extract its contents into your C:\shiprite folder. This needs to be done only on the computer that has Quickbooks installed. (If you are running Quickbooks on a workstation, then you will need to download and unzip the integration package on the server also.)

To get ShipRite ready, you must make sure that EVERYTHING you sell in your store has a DEPARTMENT and DESCRIPTION assigned to it. If you do not, you will get an error message when attempting to POST to Quickbooks. To check this go to “POS.” Click on the menu item “PLU”. In the Inventory Master screen, select the “Column Header” label that says Department. This will sort the inventory list by department, alphabetically.

quickbooks1

As you can see in the diagram, the blank items appear at the top of the list. Correct both the blank Departments and blank Descriptions. You can merely enter them in the inventory master list. Close ShipRite.

Start Quickbooks. If a company opens, go to: “FILE > CLOSE COMPANY.” With no company open, click on “Open an Existing Company.” In the “Look in Text Box,” you must browse to the C:\shiprite folder .

quickbooks2

You will see an existing file: “C:\ ShipRitePOS.QBW.” Click “OPEN.” The Quickbooks Learning Center opens. It is suggested you use the training tool. For now, click on “Begin Using Quickbooks” on the bottom right. Right now, your chart of accounts is blank except for 3 payroll accounts. You will also have 1 vendor now: Dept of Tax and Finance. This is your sales tax collected account.

Minimize Quickbooks by clicking on the __ underscore in the top right handler. Start ShipRite Software. Now both Quickbooks and ShipRite are open. From ShipRite’s main menu, go to “ACTIONS > Quickbooks Management Module.” The Chart of Accounts is the first Tab control. The “CREATED” column should be blank. If it is not, perform step 2 above. Select: “UPDATE QUICKBOOKS.”

You will now get the QB Security window popping up. Select “YES.” Always allow access even if QB is not running.

quickbooks3

Click “Continue.” You will get another window popping up.
cquickbooks4

Select “YES” to continue. Then Select “DONE” on the next window.

A Chart of Account is now created in ShipRite. This will take about 2-3 minutes. If successful, you will get a message box popping up:

quickbooks5

Click “OK.” You will now see “DATES” in the created field in the ShipRite Chart of Accounts. It may have more or less than 174 rows.
You are ready to open the drawer and perform sales. It is best to assign unique Drawer IDs to each station. However, you may use one for all stations but solving discrepancies will be more difficult. In mom & pop organizations, the same drawer ID on all computers should be fine.
USING QUICKBOOKS

After doing your day sales, close the drawer. From
“POS” go to “ADMINISTRATION >POS
MANAGER >CLOSE DRAWER.” Close your drawer like normal. Print your report at the end of the Close Drawer process. After you select “SAVE,” it will take a minute or 2 to prepare the journal entry.

Go back to the QuickBooks Manager and go to General Journal. You will see one General Journal Entry (GJE) for each drawer closing. You may go several days without actually posting to QuickBooks. This is up to the user discretion. The “Folio” column is the column accountants use to indicate that an entry has been posted to the General Ledger; which in this case is QuickBooks. A “”P”” denotes posted to QuickBooks.

Click on “”POST ALL ENTRIES”” to post all outstanding GJEs. Generally, at the end of the day, if all entries look proper, you will POST ALL ENTRIES.

Go to QuickBooks and verify Account Balances. Go to: “LISTS > CHART OF ACCOUNTS. After you post to QB, you should see a money entry in UNDEPOSTIED FUNDS. Now it is time to MAKE DEPOSIT.

Go to: “BANKING > MAKE DEPOSITS.” You will see each deposit that is sitting in UNDEPOSITED FUNDS. Click on the DEPOSIT you will make. If you are going to make all of them at the same time, place a checkmark next to each deposit. Select “CONTINUE.” In the next screen, make any needed adjustments, like paying the window cleaner or other payment out of your drawer.

Quickbooks and ShipRite in your Store

You now have 2 power softwares working together to help manage your business. Each has many features and functions. Some of those features overlap. Here is the recommended system to use in your store. Keep in mind this is a recommendation based on years of experience operating this type of business. You are free to use whatever makes you comfortable.

Credit Cards Deposit Quickbooks from MC/VISA Recv

When a drawer is closed, in the ShipRite QB Manager, a double entry is loaded and ready for posting. You should review it PRIOR to POST ALL ENTRIES. You will notice that both entries balance. If there are no errors, select “POST ALL ENTRIES.” You may do this immediately after closing the drawer, or once a day for multiple drawers, or once a week. Most stores do it once a day.
Here is the way Quickbooks works for you:

ShipRite controls the flow of Revenue into Quickbooks. Writing checks in Quickbooks controls the money flowing out. At the end of the month, you can run a PROFIT AND LOSS report to see how you are doing. It is important that you do both to get an accurate number that you can rely on.
