SmartConnect Integration Guide
This guide is intended for Point-of-Sale (POS) Vendors, to integrate their software with the SmartConnect platform, in order to accept payments from any device running a SmartConnect client (including all compatible Smartpay EFTPOS Terminals).
POS Vendors familiar with older Smartpay integration software (i.e. SmartLink Lite) will find the flows with SmartConnect to be slightly different, but the overall integration being much simpler and faster to implement (literally taking two API calls to have a basic integration up and running!).
While this guide outlines the most common way for POS software integrations to be implemented, in some specific circumstances Smartpay development teams can work with the Vendor to accommodate a slightly different flow if needed. For example, if a given cloud-based POS system has its own set of APIs and/or supports plugins or add-ons for payments, Smartpay can collaborate with the Vendor to provide the best possible solution to our mutual customers.
This guide is not intended for Vendors of payment acceptance devices (i.e. EFTPOS Terminals, mobile wallets, etc). SmartConnect has a separate set of APIs to enable these systems to provide payment acceptance to integrated POS systems.
This guide is also not intended for Vendors looking for a e-Commerce (online payment gateway) solution. If you fall into either of these categories, please get in touch today to discuss your specific needs with our team.
