How to integrate vouchers with SENPOS

TalkBox vouchers can be integrated so they can be backed by a SENPOS voucher.  This means vouchers created and issued from TalkBox can be scanned at a SENPOS terminal and have all the features of SENPOS vouchers.  To do this, a voucher is created in each system and the TalkBox voucher is given the ID of the SENPOS voucher, this connects the vouchers from the two systems.  These composite vouchers:

  • Can be issued by TalkBox.
  • Can be scanned and redeemed at a SENPOS terminal.
  • Support native SENPOS voucher functionality.

To set this up you need to configure two vouchers, one in each system. This article shows how to complete this configuration for existing TalkBox and SENPOS users in 5 steps.

In SENPOS admin:

  • Navigate to the promotion tab.
