Alleviate charge backs by the system tagging new customers. New customers/hotel guests represent 95% of the chargebacks
new customers and hotel guests represent 95% if not higher of all credit card charge backs. If the system could indicate that the customer is new this would trigger the delivery driver or cashier to carefully check their drivers license to the credit card used to pay for an order. Also, this trigger would post a message to the customer that if they are using a credit card, it will be verified at the time of delivery or pickup. You would be surprised how many scammers cancel their orders once you say that they need to have the credit card being used on hand at time of delivery or pickup.
Thanks for the suggestion! Very insightful. We will keep in mind for future enhancements how we might want to incorporate this.
It is possible to print a message on a ticket for only new customers. This is done in Configuration > Printer Ticket using the Promo Message function. Here’s a video about this feature. https://thrivepos.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/420366-promo-messages-video
You do have some message areas you can customize in Thrive Online. You may wish to post a message on the order confirmation screen that says “First time customers will be asked to show their credit card for verification”. Hopefully that would scare them off! https://tol.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/755220-setting-up-communications
