Adding additional Merchant IDs
If you have multiple Merchant Accounts linked to the EFTPOS machine, you will need to add them into Best Practice to ensure funds are settled into the correct bank account. If they aren’t added, transactions will be processed under the Merchant ID that was used to pair with the TTA and settlement will be deposited into its nominated bank account.
- In the Configuration menu, select Banks Accounts
- Select the practice account listed in the top section and click Edit. The bank account details screen will appear
- Enter the Tyro Merchant ID (MID) provided to you by Tyro for the practice bank account and click Save
- If your practice has more than one practice account, repeat these steps for each practice account, using the Tyro MID provided for each practice account number
- If your practice deposits payments into separate provider bank accounts, repeat the steps for each provider account by clicking Edit under the Provider accounts list and entering the Tyro MID for each provider, then click Save
Note: Each time a payment is entered into the system, the screen will display the Merchant ID (MID) and Terminal ID (TID) associated with the payment. If a provider has their own MID recorded, the screen will show the provider’s MID; Otherwise, the screen defaults to the MID associated with the first practice bank account.
Once Best Practice has been paired and configured you should be able to process transactions and Medicare Easyclaim requests without having to enter anything into the Tyro EFTPOS machine manually.
