Integration Options

  • Semi-Integrated – PAX Terminals can communicate with PC or mobile POS via HTTP or HTTPS to an IP on local network. It is recommended to issue the PAX terminal a local IP so that configuration does not need to change. This solution also allows merchants to have multiple tables available with PAX terminals at fixed locations. So, if for example a retail store equips their sales people with tablets they can easily ring up the customer and choose to process the payment on the nearest available PAX terminal.
  • PAX terminals supports Ethernet communication via socket connections on local network. Point of sale may talk to the unit via TCP only, without utilizing HTTP.
  • If an integrator has a native POS application the semi integrated PAX can be connected via serial to the cash register. This can be more efficient than an Ethernet addressable terminal and allows for successful processing even if the network goes offline and forwarding is enabled.
