Using game\Internet minutes of regular client balance
Customer is able to use game/Internet minutes that present on this user balance as fixed number of minutes (balance-min mode) or timer minutes (balance-timer mode).
"Balance-timer" mode means that customer starts work, then when he finishes, his balance is subtracted with numeber minutes he actually worked. In case balance runs out before he finishes, the timer will be stopped automatically
Starting work in "balance-timer" mode is not different from regular timer (post-paid) mode, however you should choose "balance-timer" in indicator (not timer):
To finish balance-timer work and subtract spent minutes, you should press "Stop" button as usual.
"Balance-min" mode allows enter fixed number of minutes that customer plans to spend from his balance:
There are restrictions with balance-timer and balance-min and customer balances:
|•||You can't convert game minutes to Internet and vice versa|
|•||You can't change games operation to Internet in balance-timer mode (you have to stop timer first).|
We will remove these restrictions in new versions of our software.
Cafe owner would better to restrict edit cards in security settings of program ("Clients database" tab).
