Credit Card Integration Expansion

We've added another processor to our list of integrations that customers can use with the EMV chip readers.  Starting in version 5.2.4, customers will be able to use Heartland Payment Systems, in addition to the currently existing options of WorldPay (formerly known as Vantiv, and prior to that as Mercury) and Sterling.

The integration to Heartland will use a different model chip reader than the Verifone VX805 previously shown in this newsletter, the Ingenico iPP320.  Please let us know if you are interested in this integration, or if you are a current Heartland customer and would be interested in using a direct integration.
Year's End is Coming Soon

Are you considering purchasing new hardware, or updating from an older version to the current edition?  You may want to do so before the end of the year to be eligible to deduct the cost of this equipment off of your store's taxes for the 2018 tax year.

Section 179 of the tax code allows you to deduct the full purchase price of equipment from your income this year, rather than depreciating it over time.  This is based on the invoice date, so even if you aren't going to have the equipment in place until after January 1st, if you order it before then you can utilize this.

This may be particularly useful if looking to replace computers, add stations, or update to using EMV chip readers for those customers still using mag-stripe readers.
Physical Inventory and Reports

As a reminder, in ThunderPOS you can find Physical Inventory under the activities menu.  It will only appear if you have permission to access it, either with the specific permission for physical inventory, or by being logged in as an administrator.

Even if you're not doing your physical inventory on the first, we highly recommend pulling an inventory report in one of the several forms available in the system.  If running the inventory list report, remember that this is run separately for new and used product, so make certain you get both if you sell used product.

Other options for getting a list include doing an export from the items search or doing a generated report under the tools menu.  These both trade a little bit of readability for flexibility; you can customize the columns available on both, but they are unlikely to be appropriate for printed copies.  Still, if wanting your inventory report in spreadsheet form, these are very powerful options.
