  • go to the payment screen

A Meal Voucher Summary is available:


If the amount received is too important, a warning icon is displayed


If the cashier try to validate the order, a warning is also display, asking confirmation


It is a non blocking warning, because we don't want to prevent an order to be done, if products are not correctly set, or if a recent law changed the maximum amount that can be used each day. (A recent case occured in France, during the Covid-19 pandemy)

Informations are printed on the ticket, if the point of sale is so configured.



A new barcode rule is available for Paper Meal Voucher of 24 chars:


If you scan the following barcode 052566641320080017000000, a new payment line will be added, with an amount of 8,00€ (00800)
