Managing Equipment Pricing and Features

PRICING AND FEATURES PAGE

The FasCard system allows for multiple Pricing schedules based upon time of day and the day of the week.  The Features schedule also allows certain machine functions and user rewards to be enabled or disabled based upon time and day.  

Equipment types need to be added before configuring the price of each machine.  You can set the equipment types here.


  • The first configured schedule for Pricing or Features becomes the default scheduled.  Subsequent created schedules are configured for Time of Day based pricing.
    • Setting the price to $0.00 will allow FREE starts.
    • Do NOT set the first pricing schedule configuration to $0.00
    • In the event of a loss of power, the system returns to the default pricing and if the first pricing schedule configuration is set to $0.00, this will be the price store patrons will be charged until it's changed by the Store Owner.
