It is possible that the payment was successful on the device, but before selecting Check Response at Poynt your internet went out. If this is the case, please wait until you have internet again before trying again. 

Once the payment has been processed and the order doesn't have a customer on file, there is an opportunity to capture the guests email address and they will receive the order confirmation transaction email i.e. emailed receipt. 

At this time you can capture the first name, last name and use the drop down menu to select the email marketing status. These fields are not required but a great way to capture the new customers information. Once you have completed this, select Email Receipt.
