What are integrated payments?

Find answers to your questions about integrated payments.
What are the advantages of integrated payments?
Connect is a cloud-based solution that creates a secure link between your Card Machines and your EPoS system, allowing you to boost profits, improve the customer experience and save time.
How does my Card Machine connect to my EPoS system?
Connect uses cloud-based technology to create a seamless and secure link between your Card Machine and your EPoS system. Once the link is established, the Card Machine can send data back to the EPoS, preventing the need for manual data entry and eliminating costly human error.
How quickly can I get setup with integrated payments?
At Paymentsense, we can get you setup with a Card Machine in as little as 5 days and have you taking payments within minutes of receiving it. With Connect, it’s exactly the same. There will be no downtime and no lost sales during the setup process either.
Do I need to install integrated payments myself?
Our Card Machines come preconfigured to work with a Connect-enabled EPoS so there’s no install necessary. Simply plug it in and it will automatically find your EPoS system before establishing a secure connection.
Do I need to change my EPoS or buy new hardware/software?
With Connect, we’ve integrated with most EPoS providers and are partnering with more everyday. This means if you have an EPoS system, we’ve probably integrated with your provider, and if not, let us know and we’ll reach out to get them on board.
