									ON-LINE STORE CHARGE SOLUTION
              for
       IBM ACE SYSTEM
           Part of the



        suite of programs.
OPERATION OVERVIEW
           Step 1-
           A transaction is tendered to
           the Store Charge Tender.
           This tender-type is set as an
           APS type so the request is
           sent to the CC controller.
OPERATION OVERVIEW




           Step 2-
           The APS Host interface
           sends the request to the
           On-Line Store Charge
           Processor via TCP/IP
OPERATION OVERVIEW




           Step 3-
           The Host Server looks up
           the account number. If
           found and limits are met,
           the account balance is
           updated and an Approval is
           sent back to the APS Host
           Interface.
OPERATION OVERVIEW




           Step 4-
           The APS Host Interface
           decodes the approval
           message and sends this
           data back to the POS
           Terminal
OPERATION OVERVIEW




           Step 5-
           The programmable franking
           formats are used to print
           information such as
           Account Name, Number,
           Previous and Current
           Balance on the receipt.
OPERATION OVERVIEW




           Step 6- During the night, after
           Close Period has been
           performed, the Transaction Log is
           transferred to the On-Line Host
           PC.
OPERATION OVERVIEW
               Step 7- The day’s Transaction Log is
               scanned for any transactions
               tendered to Store Charge. If the
               transaction was already approved by
     the On-Line Host, the transaction details are
    matched up. If a matching transaction is not
    found, the transaction is added to the
    transaction list to be posted. If a PaymentSKU
    is found, a payment entry is made for that
    account. Any entries created by the Tlog Scan
    must be “Posted” prior to updating any
    balances. This ensures that the transactions
    can be verified before updating balances.
OPERATION OVERVIEW


       If you use a preferred shopper code for
       customer account numbers, you can set
       the STORECHG program to send the
       account name to the preferred shopper
       activity file. With this data, when the card
       is scanned, the display can display that
       account’s name. This number would then
       be used as the account number when
       tendered to Store Charge.
OPERATION OVERVIEW
       If the store accepts payments at the POS
       for store charge accounts, a Payment SKU
       needs to be defined. This SKU will be
       detected during the nightly transaction log
       scan and used to update accounts.

       NOTE: Payments will not be visible to the
       On-Line Host until the transaction log is
       scanned AND the POSTING procedure is
       run.
   OPERATION OVERVIEW
                           All account maintenance, transaction
                           posting and reporting are controlled in the
                           Store Charge Module.




Some examples of reports are:
Monthly Statements - Customer Lists with or without Balances - Daily
Invoice/Payment/Gift Certificate Logs - Aging Reports and more
  GIFT CERTIFICATE CONTROL
In addition to Store Charge Account control, you can use this
system to generate, track and control Gift Certificates. These
are treated exactly like the store charge but will keep track of
the remaining balance and watch for expired certificates!

Store Charge Using EM and EM Code Mask:
By using frequent shopper codes at the POS for account access allows us to have the
account’s name appear on the screen by customizing the LOYALTY section of ACE.
This can eliminate the possibility of the cashier entering the wrong account code.
This also allows us scan or enter the code at anytime during the transaction.
The EM CODE MASK shows store charge how the account number is formatted in the
Preferred Customer code. Example: Store #001 uses cat 4 for Preferred Shopper ->
400100123 would be account 123. The mask would be: 4001#######
Store Logo File:   Path and name of the logo to print at the
                   top of monthly statements.

Store Info:        The address, etc. to print under that logo.
