Best Practices &
Frequently Asked Questions
Best Practices
From our pilot program in 2013, feedback from the troops that
have used Credit Card Readers:
1. Use as a last resort for payment= ask for cash or check first
and if you are going to lose the sale or decrease the sale then
offer to use the cc reader
2. Sign up & use only if you plan to do a good number of booth
sales. Probably not worth the effort and expense if you only
do 3 booths or less.
3. Make sure there are a couple of people in the troop (2) that
attend booth sales that are trained to use the reader and have
a smart phone with app loaded and ready to use
4. Not suggested for new troops

Can I print receipts?
• Mobile Pay on Demand allows you to email receipts to your customers.
When the transaction receipt appears on screen, you can enter your
customer’s email address at the bottom and send the receipt. Customers
can then print these receipts later for their records if they wish. (Printing of
paper receipts directly from the application is not currently available). You
can also email the receipts to yourself for your own records. In addition, all
receipts are saved on the Mobile Pay Back Office website where they can
be accessed, if needed.
