Tip configuration

One-step tip

The one-step tip option in the Viva Terminal app allows users to quickly add a desired tip to their total amount. This feature requires either preset percentage options or a custom tip option to be enabled. If the user confirms the tip, the predefined tip will be added to the amount, and the updated total will be displayed on the card presentation screen. If the user declines one-step tipping, they will be prompted to choose either a percentage tip or enter a custom tip amount.

Percentage options

This option allows users to pre-define three tipping choices. Customers will see these options before making their payment, enabling them to decide on their preferred tip amount.

Custom tip

This option allows users to manually enter a tip amount. If activated alongside percentage options, a fourth choice labeled ‘Other Amount’ will be available.

Round tip up

‘The ‘Round Tip Up’ option disables all other tipping functions and prompts the cardholder to add a tip that rounds the total amount up to the nearest whole number.
