Processing Payment Transactions Using Standalone Mode

The Acceptance Devices app can be used in Standalone mode, which enables you to start transactions directly from the terminal.
These are some of the benefits of using Standalone mode:
  • Quickest way to start accepting transactions.
  • Does not require integration with a point-of-sale (POS) system.
  • Can be used as a backup option for processing transactions when your POS system is unavailable to operate in Semi-Integrated mode.
IMPORTANT
When operating in Standalone mode, the terminal does not communicate with your POS system to share transaction details. You are responsible for managing transaction reconciliation with your systems and records.
Standalone mode supports these transaction types:
  • Sale
  • Linked refund
  • Stand-alone credit
  • Sale with on-reader tipping
  • Pre-authorization
  • Capture
  • Mail order or telephone order (MOTO) sale
  • Account verification
  • Offline sale and refund
