Card Ranges are split into 2 types, Magstripe and Barcode.

Magstripe is typically for Credit and Debit Cards and the Ranges for most common cards are supplied by us, it is only if a Card Issuer puts out new cards using a different range of numbers that a user would ever need to make additions for those type of cards.

The only exception would be for Gift Cards that the User buys that are Magstripe, those would have to of a specific range and length that doesn't conflict with existing Credit and or Debit Card ranges before they could be used.

Barcode Ranges can be used for anything with a Barcode, the Range needs to have the Starting numeric value, no ending number and the correct Length.

Example: Gift Cards with a Barcode that has 9 digits and starts with the number 9

An entry on the Barcode tab of the card ranges would look like this:

It is that simple as long as there are no entries on any of the other tabs that conflict with it. Problems arise when there duplicates on other tabs for Customer Cards or Clerks or Mechanics or on the Magstripe tabs for Credit Cards, Customer Cards, Clerks or Mechanics.

In the Gift Card Mask area of the Setup Wizard you should see something like this:


Length      Start Range                        End Range                           Mask                                               Checksum
 19            6050110000000000000      6050110000099999999       0000\-0000\-0000\-0000\-099      N


For Gift Cards the checksum should always be N

For simplicity there should be only 1 mask that encompasses the full range of gift card numbers.

Otherwise there needs to be consistency in the masks. 



  1. List price comes up with a dollar value but price showing 0.00 on invoice screen.


This is usually caused by the incorrect Miscellaneous Parts information.
 Check the gift card inventory item. The correct setting should be:

Tested with these settings and we can now sell and void gift cards.
