Givsum's Point of Sale App allows you to do your payment processing live at your event using the app and a Stripe card scanner that connects to the Givsum platform. 

Givsum's Point of Sale App is connected to the Givsum platform, so before you can start swiping credit cards as a Givsum Admin, you first need to create your tickets, items, and packages to sell on your event's Opportunity Page. Givsum Point coming soon to Android.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to create your tickets, items, and packages in Givsum for sale in the Point of Sale App:

  1. Login to Givsum as an Admin. Make sure your Organization is displayed in the top left corner.
  2. Create your event's Opportunity Page. For more information on how to set up your Opportunity Page, click here.
  3. Create your tickets, items, and packages for purchase within the page's Opportunity Page Editor. 
  4. If you would like to be able to charge people a Custom Amount while using the app, create an Item called "Custom Amount" for $0 on the Opportunity Page Editor. When you go to charge someone a custom amount, you will select the "Custom Amount" button on the app and then select "Add Additional Donation" to input the amount you would like to charge the customer.
