Card Present Integration

Hardware and software developers that serve retail and mobile merchants use the Card Present API.

When merchants and shoppers are in the same physical location, merchants need a Card Present (CP) payment solution.

Merchants can leverage the speed of the Internet to authorize credit card transactions in as little as three seconds. Using Authorize.Net with an Internet Protocol (IP) enabled point-of-sale (POS) system gives you a far more efficient and reliable solution than dial-up systems.

IP-based POS systems offer several advantages:

  • Faster Checkout Times - Improve customer satisfaction by speeding up checkout lines.
  • Reduce Costs - Eliminate multiple dedicated telephone lines to reduce telecom expenses, while consolidating service costs for broadband.
  • Increased Productivity - Simplify the integration of payment information into your enterprise applications.
