Pay-At-Table

Simplify supports Pay@Table processing on Move 5000 PIN Pads.

Pay@Table transactions can be broken down into three steps (see Message Flow for additional details):

  1. Pre-pay (Simplify Pay@Table process) -- Simplify sends a Login Request to login and connect to the POS. Pay@Table configuration values are received in the response. Check data may also be present.

    If check data is present, Simplify will display the data.

    Else Simplify prompts the server to enter a table and/or check number, sends a Get Check Information Request to obtain check data, and displays data for the returned checks.

    Server selects check (if more than one). Simplify finalizes transaction data for a tender and sends a Make Payment Request to the POS.

  2. Authorization (Simplify Payment process) -- Simplify receives a financial request from the POS, obtains customer account data, and prepares and sends a host request to Fusebox. Simplify processes the host response, and sends a financial response to the POS.

    Supported Tran Types for the financial request are Auth Only (01), Sale (02), Return (09). For more information on these Tran Types, see

    Message Details

    . The POS can also send a Void (11) or an Inquiry (22) after a host or Simplify timeout; for more information see under Simplify Payment Processing.

  3. Post-pay (Simplify Pay@Table process) -- Simplify receives a Print Receipt Request from the POS, selects receipts to print (if menu enabled), prints the receipts, and sends a Print Receipt Response to the POS.

All messages sent during the Simplify Pay@Table process use Tran Type 39.

POS responsibilities during a Pay@Table transaction include the following:

  • Upon Login Request, validates user. If valid login, returns Login Response based on message specification. A Login Response may contain check data.

  • Upon Get Check Information Request, returns list of open checks. (This request is sent if the Login Response does not contain check data.)

  • After receipt of Make Payment Request (completion of Pay@Table pre-pay process), builds and sends financial request to Simplify.

  • After receiving financial response, sends Print Receipt Request to Simplify.

  • Handle timeout from financial response, if applicable.

  • Upon Logout/Disconnect Request, sends response, logs user out and disconnects from PIN Pad.

  • There can be multiple Pay@Table terminals for a single base. All terminals connected to the same base will have the same IP address, with the POS responsible for managing multiple sockets.
