The Support DL Scan/Swipe Entry Parameter (available only when the Check Minimum Age Entry Parameter is enabled) allows the Clerk to scan or swipe a Customer's drivers license to populate the Birthdate field on the Confirm Age screen when selling items with a Minimum Age requirement. The Track 2 data from the driver's license swipe is read but only the birth date is kept. When scanning a 2D barcode where the Birthdate field begins with an "@", the Expiration Date from the scan is also checked and a warning message is displayed if the license is expired (unless the Don't Check Expiration Date Entry Parameter is enabled).
If Support DL Scan/Swipe is enabled driver's licenses may be scanned or swiped.
If Support DL Scan/Swipe is disabled driver's licenses may not be scanned or swiped.
