Computop, a leading global payment processor, today announced that its highly secure card terminals are available with the EFTPOS integration interface, Pepper, from the Swiss software service provider treibauf. The Computop card readers can now be accessed via this interface by almost 100 common POS systems.
Pepper acts as a translator between the POS system protocol and individual enhancements of the OPI-DE standard, the language of card terminals. The connection of the card readers via the Computop terminal server enables retailers to significantly reduce their maintenance costs as remote maintenance of the devices can be carried out without on-site service. In addition, it ensures the use of a uniform terminal type in all geographies.
"The integration of Pepper makes it easier for retailers to choose Computop's PCI P2PE-certified terminals when upgrading," says Stephan Kück, CEO of Computop. "The connection to the Omnichannel platform Computop Paygate will enable them to merge their payments with e-commerce transactions to create a customer-friendly sales process across all channels.”
treibauf develops software to make it easier for merchants to process and administer their cashless payments (EFT). On the one hand, the treibauf range includes flexible interfaces that make it easier to connect payment terminals to POS devices (EFTPOS integration). On the other hand, we offer solutions that reliably automate EFTPOS terminal testing or debtor reconciliation for all types of card payments.
