Computop Cloud POS Interface

Use your web-based ERP or shop system to accept card payments in stationery businesses. The communication of your terminals at the point of sale occurs via the Internet directly through Computop Paygate and makes traditional interfaces such as OPI or ZVT superfluous.

Off into the clouds – Computop Cloud POS Interface makes terminals fly!

The Computop Cloud POS Interface liberates you from the limitations of a conventional POS architecture for accepting card payments. You will no longer depend on using traditional POS or cash register systems with an integrated ZVT/OPI interface to operate your card terminals. Our newly developed interface enables you to operate card terminals from any web-based ERP, store, or POS system. Communication does not take place via the ZVT/OPI interface but directly via Computop Paygate.

The Paygate transfers the payment requests to a cloud-based terminal server which identifies and addresses the correct terminal. Therefore, the terminal does not have to be in the same network as the initiator system but can also be operated via a SIM card. This innovation in the POS system landscape allows you to implement omnichannel-based, customer-facing services at the stationary point of sale faster and flexibly using your existing infrastructure.
