Ways to offer Interac Debit Solutions.

Power your business with secure and convenient Interac Debit payment solutions.

Interac Debit contactless payments are a popular checkout choice for consumers. With contactless payments, you get the benefits of:

  • Increased check-out rates, thanks to faster payment processing
  • Immediate access to funds
  • No chargebacks – ever
  • Secure transactions

How it works

Your customers simply tap their debit card or mobile device on the terminal instead of entering a PIN code. That’s all. It’s as safe and secure as the rest of our Interac payment solutions.

Software-Based PIN on Cots

Focus on growing your business with flexible and low-cost Software-Based PIN on Cots (SPoC) for mobile point-of-sale transactions.

If you are a micro- or small business, a freelancer, or a charity, you can accept payments with ease wherever you may be by integrating a SPoC solution.

SPoC is a software-based approach in which a cardholder can enter their PIN on a merchant-owned mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet. The cardholder’s PIN is entered on a verified Acquirer APP while their card is inserted into the merchant’s secure card reader.

Enjoy the flexibility of mobile point-of-sale Interac Debit transactions on your device such as a mobile phone or tablet without the need for an integrated payment solution.
