Virtual Point of Sale (VPOS)
Features and Benefits
VPOS is an easy-to-implement, easy-to-use, secure, and low-cost solution. Suitable for merchants of any size, VPOS is ideal for mall kiosks, doctors' clinics, lawyers' offices, trade shows, etc.
- Quick Setup – Our browser-based, hosted solution is enabled by simply plugging the swipe card reader into a USB port on your computer. For receipts, use your existing printer or a retail receipt printer.
- Risk Management – Sensitive data is stored in the Authorize.Net PCI-compliant data center, never on your computer.
- Secure – Unlike other solutions, VPOS maintains a locked connection between your card reader and browser, and alerts you if there is an unauthorized attempt to connect to the reader.
- Fast Checkout Times – Speed up checkout lines and improve customer satisfaction by authorizing credit card transactions in as little as three seconds.
