Virtual Point of Sale

Virtual Point of Sale

Authorize.Net’s Virtual Point of Sale (VPOS) turns any Windows based Internet-connected computer into a point-of-sale (POS) terminal with the simple addition of an inexpensive USB HID swipe card reader. VPOS is an easy-to-implement and easy-to-use, low-cost solution for merchants of any size.

 

  • Inexpensive – Merchants utilize their existing computer, printer and Internet connection. They simply add an inexpensive swipe card reader.
  • Quick Setup – Our browser-based, hosted solution is enabled via a simple plug-in.
  • Risk Management – Sensitive data is stored in the Authorize.Net PCI-compliant data center, never on your computers.
  • Secure – Unlike other solutions, VPOS maintains a locked connection between the card reader and browser. Sensitive data is encrypted and transmitted securely using 128 bit SSL.
  • Fast Checkout Times – Speeds up checkout lines and improves customer satisfaction by authorizing credit card transactions in as little as three seconds.
  • Controlled Account Access – Multi user accounts enhance security by restricting access to VPOS based on user permissions.
  • Merchants must have a Windows-based, Internet-connected computer, and an Authorize.Net Card Present (CP) payment gateway account.
  • Card Swipe Readers ($50 – $80)
