Can I use Afterpay with this integration?

We are working with Tyro to bring this new solution to you in the near future.

Can I use multiple currencies with Tyro?

Yes you can take foreign card payments with Cin7's POS and Tyro.

How are Surcharges handled by Cin7 ?

If you want to use surcharges, you need to create a "Non-stock" product in Cin7 with the product code of 'POS-Surcharge'. When Tyro tells our PoS that a surcharge is required, this non-stock product will be added automatically.
