Virtual Point Of Sale
Virtual Point of Sale (VPOS)
Authorize.Net’s Virtual Point of Sale (VPOS) turns any Internet-connected computer into a point-of-sale (POS) terminal with the simple addition of an inexpensive USB Human Interface Device (HID) swipe card reader. VPOS is an easy-to-implement, easy-to-use, secure, and low-cost solution. Suitable for merchants of any size, VPOS is ideal for mall kiosks, doctors’ clinics, lawyers’ offices, trade shows, etc.
Quick Setup — Our browser-based, hosted solution is enabled by simply plugging in the swipe card reader to a USB port on your computer. Simply use your local or network printer as well as retail receipt printers, such as the Epson TM-T88III or Star TSP643U-24.
Risk Management — Sensitive data is stored in the Authorize.Net PCI-compliant data center, never on your computer.
Secure — Unlike other solutions, VPOS maintains a locked connection between your card reader and browser and alerts you if there is an unauthorized attempt to connect to the reader.
Fast Checkout Times — Speed up checkout lines and improve customer satisfaction by authorizing credit card transactions in as little as three seconds.
Swipe card readers can be purchased from a variety of POS providers for approximately $50.00 – $80.00. There are several compatible models.
• MagTek – Centurion model 21073075 configured to security level 2; and models 21040101, 21040102, 21040146, and 21040140.

“We needed a provider that had our best interests in hand without simply filling their own back pockets. Start Merchant Services did a consultation with us to see how to best accept payments in our industry, educating us along the way with best practices and tools. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.”
"When we initially engaged with START, we were a Startup, and never experienced the merchant service thing before. We got START on the phone and they were very thorough in answering our questions and educating us on the process and what to expect. We have been with them for over 5 years now and they continue to scale with our success."
"Shaun and his team understand what we needed as a small business owner. Being a small business owner himself, he understood the value in a solution that is economical along with well supported, which is exactly what we got in START!"
