The tablet is setup to return specific responses that indicate the validity of the pass you are scanning. If the tablet returns a negative response, like Invalid Pass: Used or Expired, this does not indicate an error on the tablet, but rather acknowledges that the pass itself is not valid. Either it has been used up already, or has expired.
Regardless, Sightseeing Pass and Redeam understand that you want to provide the best customer experience, while also ensuring that you get paid for the customer. Below is an operational guide provided by Sightseeing Pass for you to follow when you encounter a pass that returns a message besides Pass Valid.
