Many merchants need the ability to accept credit card payments and process them manually – either in store or at trade shows and exhibitions. Our PayPoint web-based point of sale system offers user-friendly, secure and cost effective point of sale functionality without the need for a pos credit card machine
or any additional hardware or software. PayPoint allows the user to
access the system from any computer with internet access and thereby accept credit card payments from customers anywhere, any time. As this service is web based it requires no maintenance - unlike a pos credit card machine - and does not require a dedicated telephone line.
The PayPoint virtual point of sale
system is accessed via the PayGate Back Office admin website. Access to
this site is controlled by the merchant, who has the ability to create
users and user groups for employees with varying degrees of access.
Once on the PayPoint credit card processing secure
page, the user can enter the credit card numbers and submit the
transaction. The transaction is then processed in real time via the
PayGate credit card processing payment gateway to the merchant’s internet merchant account at one of the supported banks including ABSA, Nedbank and Standard Bank.
The user will then receive the transaction status – either ‘accepted’
or ‘declined’, which can be printed out for the customer if required.
For merchants who require the ability to accept credit card payments in a point of sale card-present environment but do not want a pos credit card machine, the PayGate PayPoint web-based virtual point of sale credit card processing service offers a reliable, secure and flexible system enabling them to accept credit card payments
any time, anywhere. PayPoint is completely web based and does not
require the installation of any additional hardware or software and can
be used on any computer with internet access. This service is suitable
for the tourismand travel and hotel industries, B&B and travel agency owners and can be used as a point of sale credit card facility in stores and trade shows.
