Hereinafter, a method of operating a gift certificate settlement system according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the flowchart of FIG. 3.
First, when an inserter (merchant or user) inserts a card possessed by himself / herself into the card recognition unit 110 of the gift certificate settlement apparatus 100-1 to 100-n, the card recognition unit 110 is executed by the inserter. The card to be inserted is read to recognize user information (that is, card information) stored in the card (S301). At this time, the card recognition unit 110 transmits the recognized card information to the central processing unit 120.
Therefore, the central processing unit 150 receives the card information recognized by the card recognition unit 110 and compares the data stored in the memory unit 160 to check whether it is available or not (S302), in step S302 According to the result of the check, the corresponding message (result message) is read from the memory unit 160 and displayed or outputted through the input / output unit 120 (S303).
Alternatively, the central processing unit 150 receives the card information recognized by the card recognition unit 110 and transmits to the gift certificate settlement server 300 through the communication unit 190, the gift certificate settlement server 300 is each The card information received from the gift voucher settlement apparatus 100-1 to 100-n is compared with the data of the gift voucher settlement database 400 to enable or disable processing, and transmit the result to the central processing unit 150. Do it.
At this time, if the normal card is available, a password input request message of 'Please enter the password' is displayed or voice output.On the other hand, if the card is abnormal, the message 'Not available' is not available. The card is paused. '
Accordingly, in the case of a normal card, when the inputter inputs the password set by the inputter through the inputter input / output unit 120, the inputter input / output unit 120 inputs the password inputted by the inputter to the central processing unit. 150).
Then, the central processing unit 150 checks the password transmitted from the inputter input and output unit 120 to perform the inputter authentication procedure to check whether they match each other by comparing the password set in the memory unit 160 ( S304).
Alternatively, the central processing unit 150 receives the password from the input and output unit 120 and transmits to the gift certificate settlement server 300 through the communication unit 190, the gift certificate settlement server 300 is settled each gift certificate settlement Check the password received from the device (100-1 ~ 100-n) with the data of the gift voucher settlement database 400 to perform the inputter authentication procedure for whether the input is a valid inputter, and the result is the central processing unit 150 Send it to).
When the inputter authentication process is completed in step S304, the locking device of the gift certificate settlement device 100-1 to 100-n is driven to maintain the inserted state until the end of work and cannot be forcibly pulled out. At this time, the central processing unit 150 checks whether the command of the business end or cancel button is input through the input and output unit 120 (S305), in this case the lock if the command of the business end or cancel button is input After the device is released and the card is ejected to allow all work to end (S306). On the other hand, if the command of the end of work or cancel button is not input, the lock device keeps the inserted state (S307).
While maintaining the insertion state of the card in step S307, the input and output unit 120 displays a menu screen so that the input of the input command after displaying the notification, advertisement for the input (merchant or user) (S308). In addition, the input and output unit 120 may display the type, number of copies, gift certificate information, etc. for the input from the central processing unit 150.
At this time, the central processing unit 150 inquires the transaction history, period history, etc. according to the specific transaction number of the inputter according to the inputter's request and outputs it through the receipt output unit 180.
When the inputter operates the inputter input / output unit 120 and inputs the gift certificate to the gift certificate input unit 130, the gift certificate input unit 130 receives the gift certificate and delivers it to the gift certificate recognition and classification unit 140 ( S309).
