How to sell a ticket quickly and without a credit card CVV2 number

(Last updated on: June 12, 2023)

Sometimes time is short and lines are long. The best way to complete a transaction really quickly is to use Quicksale in Wintix by going to Sales | Quick sale. Also, you can bring up Quicksale, by pressing the Alt key and Q at the same time. This module is specifically used for POS at the night of the performance when you have long lines. Some Wintix users prefer to remove the requirement to enter a CVV2 number during a quick sale for speediness.

NOTE: We recommend that you require a credit card CVV2 number at all times, if possible.

  • If you need to turn off the requirement, go to File | Initialization | Credit card options tab. Notice the check box labeled Require the Cvv2 number for non scanned credit card transactions.
  • When unchecked, you can manually input a credit card number without having to put in a CVV2 number.  Without the CVV2 security number, the credit card will be processed without having to input that information. This will speed up the ticketing process, but you do need to be aware that this does remove the security feature and will slightly increase your merchant credit card fees.

Also, for your regular advance POS transactions, the following features can be of help.

  • Click on File | Initialization | Options 1 tab.  Notice check box Automatic lookup of addresses when selling tickets. When this is unchecked, Wintix will allow you to sell tickets without having to look up a customer’s name.
