Standard interfaces between mobile devices, mobile payment applications, and site equipment/networks foster innovation and promote interoperability for vendors and manufacturers.
The Conexxus/IFSF Mobile Payment Specification provides a standard API interface between existing Site Systems (e.g., Point of Sale, Electronic Payment Server, Forecourt Device Controller) and a Mobile Payment Processing Application. This enables transactions in the forecourt through a mobile device (e.g., smartphone, tablet, connected car). The Specification allows for above-site processing (i.e., the mobile payment processor interfaces directly with the payment host). The Specification also provides messages into the Site Systems to control site specific functionality, specifically pump authorization.
