Accreditation Process

Prior to POSgate being in production, it is a requirement that the implementation be accredited by Ingenico and if required, by the bank.

This process is designed to ensure that the implementation functions correctly and is able to recover from errors. The accreditation process is the minimum standard required to be able to use POSgate for live payments.

The actual accreditation process can be done remotely, with the developer providing Ingenico with copies of receipts and screen captures from the PINpad. The process itself consists of testing the ability of handling the following functionality or failures:

  • Device configuration
  • Purchase transactions
  • Refund transactions
  • Handling signature validation
  • Power failure on the PINpad
  • Power failure on the POS
  • Application failure on desktop solutions
  • Retrieving last receipt
  • Checking the status of the last transaction

We strongly recommend that as you develop the solution that you keep the accreditation process in mind.

Once you have finished integrating your POS system to POSgate, simply contact Ingenico to organise the accreditation.
