Electronic Funds Transfer Module Setup

Verify the Maitre’D license

Make sure that the Maitre’D Electronic Funds Transfer Interface option is included on the Maitre’D license. To confirm this, simply logon to the Maitre’D Back-Office using appropriate credentials, click on the File menu and select the Licenses option.

This will bring up the license’s properties. Only one option is required for SecurePay to operate properly:

  • Interface Electronic Fund Transfer.

If this option is missing, it will need to be purchased before you can use SecurePay. Please contact your local sales representative.

    Automatic EFT Pre-Autho.

    This option will become available once the Use Pre-Authorization option is enabled. Enable this option to use bar tabs. This feature only works with select payment processors in the United States.

    Default Automatic EFT

    Enter the default amount to be used for authorization when opening a bar tab with a credit card. This amount is also used as an increment value if the total of items already ordered is higher than the default amount. For example, if the default value is $25.00, Maitre'D will increment the suggested amount by $25.00 slices, going from $25.00 to $50.00 and then to $75.00 and so on, as needed to cover the current amount of the running tab.

    Single Auto EFT Pre-Autho.

    Enable this option to modify and re-use the existing pre-athorization when the authorized amount is exceeded. Disabling this option will cause a new pre-authorization to be processed every time the authorized amount is exceeded, which requires the card to be re-swiped. Some payment processors don't allow existing pre-authorizations to be modified while others may explicitly require it, so please check with your processor whether you should enable or disable this option.
