With credit accounting activated, users must have a sufficient amount of credit on their account to be allowed to print, copy and scan. On their home screen on the embedded terminal, they can view their remaining credit. If the Recharge Credit action is available on the terminal, users can recharge their credit by entering a code from a recharging voucher directly on any embedded terminal.
If recharging credit by vouchers is enabled in MyQ, users without credit are asked to recharge after they log in. They are informed about the insufficient credit and automatically redirected to the Recharge Credit screen, where they can top up.
After tapping the Recharge Credit action, the Recharge Credit screen opens and the logged user can enter a recharge code from their voucher.
Users can view the prices of different configurations of a printed page by tapping the Coins in the upper-right corner of the screen.
Using terminal actions with insufficient credit
If recharging credit by vouchers is enabled in MyQ, users can still see the actions that they do not have sufficient credit for. However, if they tap the particular action button, they are immediately redirected to the Recharge Credit screen.
If recharging credit by vouchers is disabled in MyQ and a user does not have sufficient credit, all actions requiring credit are unavailable, and their corresponding buttons are dimmed.
