Sektor offers POS interfaced solutions on both the Paymark (V-Link and Vault) and ENZ (POS Link) switches.

V-Link and Vault (Paymark Switch) 

Sektor’s VeriFone terminal solutions for POS integration help retailers simplify and streamline critical aspects of their payment operations. Sektor’s V-Link or Vault interface options provide many benefits to both the merchant and cardholder. Faster and more accurate transactions eliminate operator keying errors and card holder wait times at POS. Enhanced productivity is achieved by simplifying end of day EFTPOS and POS sales reconciliation processes and as the payment application is always resident on a VeriFone terminal, many industry security standards and certification requirements are taken care of. 

With a range of interfaced and integrated solutions to choose from, connecting VeriFone terminals to POS PC applications or ECR systems has never been easier. By writing the application only once,  POS vendors can offer merchants interfaced payment processing solutions that provide multiple choices of functionality and VeriFone hardware devices. 

Easy to implement in both small and large environments, selecting an interface for POS integration is dependent on the features required by the merchant and the functionality supported by the POS or ECR application. V-Link offers simple protocols that support one way or two POS integration or a more advanced protocol that supports POS printing. 

            

           

 


 

POSLink (ENZ Switch)

ENZ offer both one-way (POSLink) and two-way (POSLink2) interfaces with a variety of POS systems

POSLink One-way Interface (POSLink)

The POSLink one-way interface allows merchants to directly connect an EFTPOS terminal to their Point of Sale (POS) system or Electronic Cash Register (ECR) – removing the need to re-enter the purchase amount into the EFTPOS terminal.

The POS/ECR sends a simple one way message to the EFTPOS terminal containing the EFTPOS transaction value. The cardholder then selects their account and proceeds as normal to complete their transaction. The customer receipt is printed via the EFTPOS terminal once the transaction is completed. The operator will be required to acknowledge the transaction outcome on the EFTPOS terminal and if approved, tender off the POS transaction.

POSLink Two-way Interface (POSLink2)

The POSLink two-way interface allows merchants to directly connect an EFTPOS terminal to their Point of Sale (POS) system or Electronic Cash Register (ECR) – removing the need to re-enter the purchase amount into the EFTPOS terminal.

The POSLink two-way interface enables the merchants POS/ECR to send a simple two way message to the EFTPOS terminal containing the EFTPOS transaction value. The cardholder then selects their account and proceeds as normal to complete their transaction.

Prompts will be displayed on the POS advising the operator of the current cardholder operation e.g. AWAITING ACCOUNT, AWAITING PIN, PROCESSING NOW, etc

The terminal will send a response message back to the POS advising of the transaction outcome. If the transaction is approved, the POS will automatically complete the transaction.

The customer receipt is printed via the EFTPOS terminal once the transaction is completed.
