How it works:

A typical transaction consists of the following:

  • If the customer selects to pay by card, the till will send the sale for the total amount to be paid on the PinPad
  • The PinPad prompts the customer to swipe or enter their card on the PinPad
  • The PinPad will prompt the customer to enter their PIN (if the verification method for the card is a PIN). Otherwise, a receipt is printed on the till and this receipt will have space for the cardholder’s signature (if it is a magstripe card with signature verification method)
  • The customer will enter their secret PIN for chip and PIN card transactions and the PinPad will encrypt the PIN and card data that is sent to Absa Bank Uganda for authorisation
  • Absa Bank will either authorise or decline the transaction
  • The PinPad will then display "authorised" or "declined" and will prompt the customer to remove their card
  • The PinPad will send all the data required for printing the receipts to the till, irrespective of whether it is authorised or declined
