Why use Toast POS Swipe Cards as opposed to a 4 digit punch-in code? Here’s why;
One of the most common is through a trick called “The Wagon Wheel.” How does it work? A server starts a tab with a sandwich and a coke. If the customer pays in cash, then the server goes into the POS system and transfers the coke off the check and closes out the tab to just the burger and pockets the cash.
Then, the next time someone orders a coke and the server starts the ticket on that tab, ultimately transferring off the coke to another tab and pocketing the cash once again.
The server is usually using frequently ordered items like soft drinks, especially too because they are servicing their own beverages.
Bartenders can do the same with alcoholic beverages as well since they are the ones preparing their own orders.
How To Prevent This:
The Best way to prevent this altogether is if the system will make an item transfer impossible without the authorization of a manager using Toast POS Swipe Cards in lieu of a punch code.
