Card Present Overview
Card Present refers to transactions for merchants based in the US where the payer and merchant are face to face and begin a transaction with a physical card present. WePay’s Card Present solutions require permission from WePay to integrate, so be sure to get in touch with your account manager and/or integration team.
You’ll then need the following items, which your account manager will guide you through acquiring:
- Pre-Certified devices
- Card Present SDK
- API extensions
Your integration will vary depending on the type of Pre-Certified devices that you order. WePay offers two types of Pre-Certified devices:
- Terminals – These are stand-alone devices which handle card authorization. They have their own network capabilities and UIs.
- Mobile Card Readers – These devices read card data, and rely on network capabilities and UIs from the connected mobile device an application in order to process authorizations. Note that these devices are slated for availability mid Q2 2020.
|Current||End of Q2 2020|
Before integrating a Card Present solution, be sure that your platform and merchants meet the following prerequisites:
|Integration||Link or Clear Custom Payments with tokenization|
|Security||SAQ-EA-P PCI certification|
|Geography||Legal Entity based in the US|
|Access||iOS app||iOS device|
The Card Present SDK converts authorization data and metadata collected by a Pre-Certified device into an encoded payment method token used to create a Payment via the API.
Due to the permissioned nature of Card Present transactions, reach out to your account manager to receive the Card Present SDK package.
