Transact Payments - Cashiering

Transact Payments


Transact Payments (formerly known as CASHNet) is the university’s cashiering and eCommerce system. BYU utilizes the Cashiering and eMarket modules for processing over-the-counter payments and online eCommerce payments, respectively. This page discusses the Cashiering Module. See additional information regarding eMarkets on the Transact Payments - eMarkets page.

Cashiering


The Cashiering Module within Transact Payments functions as a point-of-sale (POS) system to securely process over-the-counter payments across campus. These payments can include student related payments, as well as miscellaneous payments that are not related to student accounts.

Access to Transact Payments Cashiering can be requested by completing the Transact Payments Access Authorization Form (two pages, see below). All trainings as outlined in the forms are also required prior to gaining access. The PCI trainings are expected to be completed on an annual basis to ensure PCI compliance. These completed forms can be sent to cashieroperators@byu.edu for processing.

Depending on the needs of the department, the peripheral equipment involved in cashiering can include a credit card device, a receipt printer, and a cash drawer. Cashiering stations currently use Ingenico Lane3000, point-to-point encrypted (P2PE) credit card devices to securely process credit card payments in line with PCI DSS. Please note that if taking credit card payments over the phone, all cardholder data must be communicated through a physical phone only. It is NOT PCI compliant to take credit card payments over a soft phone routed through your computer or a soft phone application. It is expected that all cashiers adhere to all PCI standards and BYU’s merchant credit card/e-commerce policy and procedures.


Cashiers can log in to Transact Payment through the following URL: https://commerce.cashnet.com/byucashier. It is recommended to run all transactions in Google Chrome, as Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Windows.

Departmental Deposits
Departments that need to deposit funds into their accounts can do so through the process of creating a departmental deposit within the Transact Payments Cashiering module. These deposits are processed at the Department Deposit Window in D-155 ASB. Again, access to Transact Payments to create departmental deposits must be requested using the Transact Payments Access Authorization Form. Please see the Department Deposit page for more details.

Fees
If taking credit card payments, each department is responsible for the merchant services fees incurred with the acceptance of credit card payments. These fees are calculated and allocated monthly and booked to the department’s corresponding GL code that was provided during the transaction, unless specified otherwise. These typically are in the low 2% range per transaction, but vary depending on the amount paid, the type of credit card used, etc. Please reach out to Braden Stohlton in Treasury Services if you have any specific questions regarding credit card merchant fees (braden_stohlton@byu.edu).
