PaymentVision 5.4.1 is now available in production. The purpose of this release is to introduce Payment Terminal Integration.
Payment Terminal Integration
Payment Terminal Integration is a new set of functionality that enables a retail software application to integrate with payment terminals.
|Reduce Payment Errors||Pre-populate payment terminals with the payment amount|
|Automate Payment Posting||Receive an online response containing the result of the terminal session|
|Simplify Payment Research||Provide merchants with a consolidated online view of card present and card-not-present payments|
|Simplify Payment Reversals||Provide merchants with a single portal from which to initiate card present and card-not-present reversals|
|Improve Customer Service||Provide customers with a consolidated view of card present and card-not-present payments within their self-service channels|
How does it work?
- Retail software application submits request to PaymentVision
- PaymentVision wakes up the terminal
- Customer swipes or inserts their payment card
- Terminal submits authorization request to PaymentVision
- PaymentVision returns authorization response
- If required, terminal captures signature
- PaymentVision returns result to retail software application
- Retail software application posts transaction and prints receipt
Payment Terminal Integration consists of the following PayAPI request methods:
|RegisterPaymentTerminal||This method is used to register a payment terminal with an organization|
|PairPaymentTerminal||This method is used to pair a payment terminal to a merchant payee code. Pairing a payment terminal to a merchant payee code enables a retail software application to filter by merchant payee code when retrieving a list of registered payment terminals.|
|GetPaymentTerminalDetails||This method is used to retrieve a list of payment terminals that have been registered with the organization. In cases where payment terminals have been paired with merchant payee codes, the list can be filtered by merchant payee code.|
|GetCustomerEnrollmentSession||This method is used to initiate a payment terminal session. The response includes the result of the session and; in the event of a successful session, the result of the transaction, the credit card token* and a transaction receipt (Merchant and Customer copy).|
|GetTransactionReceipt||This method is used to retrieve a copy of a transaction receipt.|
*Subject to limitation. See Limitations below for more information.
|Terminal Models||Payment Terminal Integration is limited to the following card terminal models:
|Terminal Pairing||Payment terminal pairing options are currently limited to merchant payee code.|
|Card Re-use||Credit Card Accounts created via payment terminal session are immediately unregistered within PaymentVision. In order to use a credit card created via a payment terminal session it must be re-introduced via PaymentVision card-not-present application.|
|Signatures||PaymentVision currently captures a signature only as required by the card network. It does not capture a signature in cases where it is not required by the card network.|
