The Yoyo button on the till is greyed out and looks to be locked

When attempting a Yoyo transaction on an MCR till, it is not necessary to press a 'Payment Button', which is why the Yoyo button may be greyed out. Please don't press any buttons, instead just ask the customer to scan their Yoyo Payment QR code and this should process the payment and close the basket on the till

The Loyalty that I have set up isn't working when customers are buying the corresponding items:
The Yoyo platform needs MCR System IDs to be added to the loyalty set up. These are commonly a six digit code, beginning with a '2'.
For further information regarding how these can be sourced from Symphony, please visit this link.

A Customer used a voucher for the item in the basket, it has discounted the item but not closed the basket
This sometimes occurs when a customer only uses a voucher, and does scan the Yoyo payment barcode, or finish the transaction by paying with cash or card. If the value of the basket is £0.00 once a voucher has been used, it is best to press the Cash button to fully close the basket.
