How POS Cloud Connect Works

POS Cloud Connect can fit seamlessly into the payment transaction flow. It enables ISVs and merchants to accept EMV and PCI compliant transactions quickly and efficiently. But how does the transaction flow work? The process is straightforward and understandable. It begins when a customer makes a purchase and is ready to checkout. The clerk then rings up the sale on their POS system. This system sends the sale information to POS Cloud Connect. It sends that same info to the payment terminal. After requesting payment from the customer, the customer uses their debit or credit card at the payment terminal. This data from the card is is packaged and encrypted by the terminal. Then, the data gets sent to the payment processor. The payment processor processes the transaction and returns approval (or denial) to the payment terminal. This response gets transferred from the payment terminal to POS Cloud Connect. Finally, It returns the response to the POS system. All of this gets done in a matter of seconds. Find out more information how it can benefit your business.

Understanding POS Cloud Connect

Here is how simple it is to get up and running in a matter of hours, instead of days. The ISV or merchant first integrates their POS system to the POS Cloud Connect API. The ISV or merchant isn’t required to integrate their POS system to the payment terminal. POS Cloud Connect takes care of all payment terminal integrations using the payment cloud. The same goes for connecting the payment terminal to the payment processor. POS Cloud Connect will handle all of this, leaving more time to focus on your business.
