How Do I Interface To EFTPOS?

Currently, the till interfaces to several EFTPOS devices such as Ingenico, Mosaic and YesPay.

Ingenico

Ingenico's EFTPOS solution provides access to these Australian banks - ANZ, St George and National Australia Bank.

The Ingenico EFTPOS is a self-contained system that interfaces with a pinpad and handles the transaction through to the bank. DynaPOSTouch simply sends a command to the EFTPOS saying how much to debit/credit. The EFTPOS device processes the transaction and returns an accept/reject message back to DynaPOSTouch.

To use EFTPOS follow these steps:

1

Install the Ingenico software and hardware. You must ensure this is working before continuing.

2

Run Tills and find the till the EFTPOS device is connected on.

3

Add a new till device with a type of 'Ingenico EFTPOS'. The other settings do not matter.

4

Save the till details.

5

Run Tenders and find each tender that needs to perform an EFTPOS transaction.

6

Check on the Does this tender interface to EFTPOS option within the DynaPOS Options tab in Tenders.

7

If you provide a cashout facility, check on the Cashout option.

8

Save the tender details.

When you reload and you make a payment using an EFTPOS tender, the Ingenico software transacts with the bank. DynaPOSTouch responds to the reject/acceptance of the transaction. If accepted, the EFTPOS details is printed at the end of the receipt.

You now have two further options available to you in DynaPOSTouch. On the Supervisor menu you see an EFTPOS Set up button that starts the Ingenico Control Panel. On the Last Receipt menu, you see an option to reprint the last EFTPOS receipt.

YESPay

YESPay is a UK EFT ‘Chip and PIN’ enabled internet based payment and authorisation solution integrated into POS BE. The solution is external to POS BE and all YESPay information and so on can be accessed on-line at www.yes-pay.com.

POS BE interfaces to a separate running application on each POS which in turn handles the credit/debit card data. A pre-requirement to use YESPay is a permanent internet connection. The YESPay software, its licence and end user agreements are obtained by the end user directly from YESPay and are not provided as part of the POS BE install package. The version of YESPay interfaced to is EASYVTerminal.

1

Download the installer EasyVTerminal-version-2.1.5.msi. (The version is subject to change over time.)

2

Remove any previous instance of EasyVTerminal from the target m/c.

3

Run the installer EasyVTerminal-version-2.1.5.msi (PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE INSTALLATION DIRECTORY). Keep the installation directory as C:\YESEFT

4

This will install the EasyVTerminal.

5

Modify the C:\YESEFT\properties\terminal.properties for the PIN Pad being used. Default configuration is for Verifone SC5000.

6

Run the batch file EMBOSS-Setup.bat.

7

This will ask for Merchant Id and Terminal Id. Set these to be what you have been given by YESPay.

8

Reboot system.r.

9

Run YESEFTConfig.exe. Select Ok. This will set up the default configuration. If EasyVTerminal is already installed, please ensure to set the classpath to C:\YESEFT\yespay-cps-2.1.0.ja

10

Run YESEFTInterface.exe, this will start the EasyVTerminal.

 

We had to open up ports 8080, 8443 to connect to the YESPay server on IP addresses

80.69.10.38

80.69.10.35

11

Once the interface is set up, POS BE needs to be configured by adding a Till Device to the POS of type 'YesPay Chip and Pin'. Set the network address to be 127.0.0.1:10000 in the 'Network Path' field.
