Tenders are the payment methods customers use such as cash, credit, deposit, or gift card. Manage tender settings to accept a variety of payment types at the register in addition to the default options.

Regular vs. Redeemable Tenders
Regular tenders cover most common payment methods, while redeemable tenders are used for liabilities customers must purchase before using. Learn below about the tenders included in each group.
These tenders are used for reporting purposes only and do not represent integrations with ShopKeep. Payment must be processed separately outside of the register for most tenders.
Regular tenders are standard payment methods like checks or mobile payments.
Redeemable tenders are for liabilities like gift certificates, gift cards, or deposits and must be set up with a liability item used for issuing the liability to customers.
