What is an offline POS terminal or PIN Pad?


Question

What is an offline POS terminal or offline PIN pad?

Answer

An offline POS terminal or offline PIN pad is a non-face-to-face payment method used to charge credit and debit cards in an unsecured mode. That is, generally the usages of POS terminals requires the presence of the cardholder to be able to swipe it through the machine or introduce the PIN code manually to validate the operation. Offline POS terminals and offline PIN pads do not require the physical presence of the cardholder since the card brand, card number, expiration date and CVC code can be entered without the client. 

Offline POS terminals or offline PIN pads are very difficult to contract since they involve a high fraud rate. In order to apply for one for your business make sure your business has an impeccable reputation and you are ready to leave a rolling reserve in a favor of the bank for some period of time. 

In the following video you can see how offline POS terminals or offline PIN pads can be used to charge credit cards without the presence of a cardholder, only having the information that the client can provide by phone.

Dear TPV Virtual Team Greetings I am also interested in a POS offline machine, but foremost I need to explain the situation. I am working here in Thailand and I am a holder of a Debit Card Master Card. Through some friends and business partners here they are interested to use my german debit card to transfer money from the USA to Thailand via the Master Card center and a POS offline machine. Thats how they explained it. They mentioned everything will be safe and declared. However they also mentioned that if money will be transferred, my local bank in germany will see this in the online banking records which leads to big problems for me if it comes to big amount of money of course. Therefore I would need your input if this is a scam or something legal in your opinion. Any help would be appreciated Best regards Dan

Dear Daniel, 

Thank you forgetting in touch with our company. First of all to mention, that it is completely illegal to transfer the funds of third parties through your account. You can get in trouble and the bank might require the information about the origin of funds and once you say that these are not yours, your account will be closed. Anyways, you can also contact local German layer to see if there are other more legal options that your business partners can use. 

Regards

The offline POS terminal is considered a very high risk product and it is very difficult to obtain it. 

In order to help you, we need to know the following: 

1. What are you going to sell through offline terminal? 

2. What is an average of monthly sales? 

3. What is your the nationality? 

4. Where will the payments be made (country and origin of potential clients)? 

5. Will the sales be in the name of a company or individual? 

Take into account that if we see that your activity is considered high risk and we cannot offer offline PinPad to you, we would recommend hiring a high risk virtual online POS. Regards

Dear, I would be interested in opening a foreign company, I deal with cryptocurrencies, mining, forex trading and consultancy in the sector. I also request a POS account with the off-Line mode, so where the POS has no line, yes they can accept payments. I am available to open where there is the possibility of having an off-line POS

Dear Gennaro, The range of the activities that you have mentioned is very wide and you might be asked to register at least two companies, one for financial consulting and another one for mining. 

For offline POS terminal the bank will ask you for a website that he will analyze and also a short description of geographical territories and potential clients that you will will be charging with it. Also you will be asked to complete a process of KYC

If you have any further questions, please contact us via email or Skype (the information can be found on home page of our website). Regards
