Absolutely! You can pre-authorize a credit card for a bar tab so you don't need to swipe it another time to close it out.
You can enable pre-authorization in the Management Console at:
- TSR (table-service restaurant) establishments: Settings > Table Service Settings > Allow Pre-authorization
- QSR (quick-service restaurant) establishments: Settings > Quick Service Settings > Link Card to Order
Intuit Payments customers: effective Feb. 23, 2016, Intuit limited final charges to 150% of the pre-authorized amount. Transactions totaling more than 150% of the pre-authorized amount will now be declined. More information
