The POS terminal utilizes end to end encryption to allow you to quickly process door sales safely and securely. By using the ShowTix4U POS terminal, you'll get the power of POS while ShowTix4U ensures PCI compliance.
All payments using Terminal are securely encrypted using point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution
P2PE standards, which are developed by the PCI Council, add an additional decryption step through HSMs (hardware security modules) before payment data is sent to card networks. PRPE encryption does not require any additional integration or setup on Terminal end.
Requirements for POS Terminal Usage:
- You will need a device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone) to access your ShowTix4U box office account to use in tandem with the POS terminal.
- Your device's browser must be up to date. (FireFox, Edge, Chrome, Safari)
- The POS terminal and the device accessing your box office portal must be on the same network. The POS Terminal will connect to the internet via WIFI. Your computer or mobile device for which you are using ShowTix4U will be connected to the same WIFI or network. The two units communicate via the internet, not directly connected through cables or bluetooth.
Your WiFi network must be WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal and password protected.
3 Easy Steps For Set Up!
- REGISTERING - this will be a one time process.
- Connect your POS Terminal to the WIFI using the same network as your box office computer/mobile device.
- Simply register the POS terminal hardware with your ShowTix4U account using a pairing code on the POS Terminal.
- You are encouraged to label the POS Terminal in the box office - we recommend doing this even if you only have one terminal - "POS #1" for example. If you have multiple terminals, labeling them in the box office portal, and also including a label on the POS Terminal itself is advised.
- The ShowTix4U POS terminal is only supported with the ShowTix4U website.
- CONNECTING - Each time a box office user logs in, they will choose which of your POS terminals they will be using for their logged in session. This allows your organization to have multiple ShowTix4U POS terminals. The POS terminal will remain assigned to that specific user until they log out.
- If you need multiple users processing payment simultaneously for an event, you'll need to invest in multiple ShowTix4U POS terminals. Each POS terminal will need its own computer/mobile device to access the box office as well.
- PROCESSING - Once you've selected your patron's ticket(s) for purchase, you'll simply select "Checkout" and Select the Payment Method as "POS Terminal." It's just that easy!
How do fees work with the POS terminal?
- There are no additional fees to use the POS terminal outside of the PURCHASE of the terminal. Please review our ticketing fees here.
