Features & 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 card reader into a USB port on your computer. For receipts, use your existing desktop printer or a retail receipt printer.

EMV Chip Process

Accept EMV chip payments using an EMV chip-enabled card device. Note: EMV chip support is currently limited to the FDC and TSYS processing platforms. For a list of additional processors and expected support dates, please see our EMV Chip FAQs.

Compatible Devices

Credit Card Reader

The BBPOS ChipperTM 2X (formerly the AnywhereCommerce WalkerTM C2X) can be purchased from the POS Portal to process magstripe and chip cards. 


VPOS is compatible with any standard 8.5" x 11" laser or ink jet printer.

If you prefer a thermal receipt printer, we recommend the Epson TM-T88V Receipt Printer connected via USB, network parallel or serial.
