General payment device functions

The Pay version of SiteKiosk supports the use of a variety of payment devices which include coin and bill acceptors, credit cards, etc. SiteKiosk provides a secure environment for monetary transactions where credit card information is encrypted and passed directly to the payment gateway (e.g. Authorize.net, PayPal etc.). SiteKiosk does not save any credit card or sensitive data.

Users will be prompted for payment before they can access certain features you have designated as pay-per-use (e.g. browsing the web, using programs or printing). The dialog box will also display images and description of all accepted methods of payment.

The inserted amount is automatically credited to the SiteCash account and can be withdrawn by the user based on usage time or service, e.g. CD burning, downloads, telephony, video email messages, etc.

You can configure a certain amount of time before the credit balance is exhausted, where a visual and acoustic warning will prompt the user to add more credit. When the credit balance is fully exhausted, the session will end, and all traces of the previous session will be erased.

Coin acceptors are available with different front bezels as interior versions or exterior versions with enclosure. Installing and configuring the devices is simple with SiteKiosk.

The SiteKiosk client software features a maintenance mode allowing you to empty the payment device. This mode will make it possible for you to assign the task of removing the traces of the transaction before another user accesses the machine. The system will automatically close out and send the information to you via email. Additionally, you can use the optional SiteRemote remote maintenance software to capture all conducted close outs and create sales reports.

Using SmartCards as payment is a cost-effective way to run kiosk terminals aimed at certain target groups. The operation of SmartCards requires SiteKiosk Pay and ACOS SmartCards with a special ID, as well as an ISO SmartCard reader. Particularly useful is SiteKiosk’s integrated scripting functionality, which allows you to read data stored on SmartCards via HTML Web pages, e.g. if you want to authenticate a customer before allowing him or her to access a certain page.

Similar to a phone card, information and credit will be stored directly on the SmartCard chip. Access to this encrypted information is restricted by a special key and the included "SmartCard Admin Tool." Use the SmartCard reader to directly withdraw any available credit from the card.

Arguments speaking in favor of using SmartCards

Credit management

Similar to phone cards, credit is stored directly on the card.

Re-usable

You can always rewrite on the cards and allow other customers to reuse them.

Safety

The ACOS SmartCard are secure and used by banks for conducting their transactions.

Transaction fees

Authorized members of your staff can write on and add credit to the cards using an included tool.

Versatile

You can use integrated scripting functions to read and write card information directly from within a website.

Providing the users the option to pay via credit card provides for operating kiosk terminals with minimal maintenance and reducing the risk of theft. Apart from manual data input, SiteKiosk also supports readers made by various manufacturers that include manual swipe readers and motorized insert readers.

Customers may securely enter their credit card information as well as the amount to be charged. A credit card gateway is used to verify, authorize, and credit your account with the corresponding provider (VISA, MasterCard, Amex, etc.). You as the administrator will usually only have to sign a contract with one of the gateways we support (VeriSign/PayPal, Authorize.net, Moneris, etc.). More ...

(Only Europe) SiteKiosk supports the CHIP&PIN method used by credit cards. Before long, users will no longer be able to complete credit card transactions unless they use their personal identification number (PIN).

Reasons to use credit card payments.

Acceptance

Credit cards are considered as a standard method of payment, though not used as commonly as cash.

Theft-proof

Electronic payment transactions do not involve any cash.

Maintenance costs

No devices have to be emptied, as the payment can be credited directly to your account.

Automation

Terminals can be operated without the need to employ cost-intensive personnel.
