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.
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.
- Operation of card terminals via web-based ERP, store, or POS systems
- No need to use and maintain a ZVT/OPI interface
- Location-independent terminal operation via SIM card (mobile Internet) possible
- Central processing of both e-commerce and stationary payments via the Computop Paygate interface
- No separate cash register and webshop system required
- High scalability of the solution, especially for international corporate structures
- Worldwide, location-independent operation of terminals via a central system
Our solution for web-based control of card terminals features three core components:
The Computop API accepts all payments from the underlying merchant system.
The Cloud Terminal Server ensures the correct identification and addressing of the intended terminal as well as the secure transfer of payment data.
A Computop card terminal suited to the particular use scenario enables the customer to make payments smoothly.
The use of the Computop Cloud POS Interface is ideal if you use a web-based ERP, store, or cash register system to trigger a payment. However, you do not want to connect your terminals via ZVT or OPI for technical or process-related reasons.
