Punch Cards are a unique type of product, in that you can create a virtual "punch card" with a set number of "punches" on it. It's like a temporary membership based on a maximum number of visits, as opposed to a membership that's on a recurring fee. These punches allow the customer to check-in as many times as their punch card limit allows for.
Since a punch card is a type of product, setting them up and selling them is a snap.
Start by creating a new product
Set the name to something like "50 Punches" or "50 Punch Card". The number serves as the maximum number of visits allowed on the punch card.

Donezo. To sell the punch card, we'll use the Invoicing P.O.S.
Create a new Invoice
Select the 50 Punches product you just created
Select a customer
Create the invoice!
When the invoice is created, it'll also create a punch card for the member. You can view the punch card from the invoice, or from the members profile. When the member checks-in, it will:
creates a checkin for the member
deduct a punch from the punch card
Once the punch card has reached it's maximum number of punches, it's status will be "full". A member can have multiple punch cards at once, and SK accounts for those when the member checks in.
