For some time now, stores that process bank cards on our Mercury platform have enjoyed the benefits of “Partial Approvals” on credit / debit / gift card sales. Simply stated a partial approval is an approval but for an amount less than requested. This allows a customer to utilize a remaining balance on a card that is less than the amount of the sale. When a partial approval is encountered the salesperson is prompted with a message informing them of a partial approval, the amount yet to be paid, and asks how the customer desires to pay the remaining balance.
This family of features has now been enabled for stores processing on platforms other than Mercury.
