Terminal Setup


This section is focused on terminal's setup and all of its available features.

It's important to bear in mind about the settings shown on the examples of the following suc sections:

  • I. In some cases, they are dependent on the Acquirer initially selected for your terminal.
  • II. Some of the them are also limited by settings defined in the terminal's merchant settings - Allow PayFAC property is an example, once is configured in Merchant's Partner Portoflio, and affects one of the terminal feature settings.
  • III. Some of them will appear depending on previously selected ones.

If you need more information, contact our Support Team.

Terminal Limits

This feature allows to configure for a Merchant the use of specific rules to limit transactions.


As you can see in the previous image, the limits can be defined for two limit configurations:

  • Terminal Volume Limits: Limit applied to the whole set of transactions processed by the Terminal.
  • Card-Level Volume Limits: Limit applied to the subset of transactions processed by the Terminal, for a specific card brand.


The Terminal Level configuration for transaction limits allows more flexibility when defining those limits than the Merchant Level.


The Terminal Limits feature working in consonance with the same configuration, present at the Merchant Details section of the Merchant configuration.

The limits work the same way, for both terminal and card configurations, but a few elements need to be informed to register a limit, depending on the scope used.

The scope (DAILY, MONTHLY, SINGLE TRANSACTION) defines how the limit is going to be applied to the transactions, like:

  • 1 - If selected DAILY: The limit verification will consider the total volume amount of transactions performed within the day, to the given configuration. In this scope you need to inform:
  • Threshold Limit Value: Applied to every scope, this field defines the limit itself.
  • Limit Scope: DAILY
  • Current Value Amount: Applied only for DAILY and MONTHLY scopes, it's the current accumulated value for limit comparison - the calculation of the limit, in each transaction, adds to this value to keep the track of the limit.
  • Daily limits accumulate the terminal's total authorized amount (Current Value Amount) within the current day, and the value is reset when the day changes. A monthly limit is considered reached when the volume hits 98% (not configurable) of its threshold.
  • 2 - If selected MONTHLY: The limit verification will consider the total volume amount of transactions performed within the month, to the given configuration.
  • Threshold Limit Value: Applied to every scope, this field defines the limit itself
  • Limit Scope: MONTHLY
  • Current Value Amount: Applied only for DAILY and MONTHLY scopes, it's the current accumulated value for limit comparison - the calculation of the limit, in each transaction, adds to this value to keep the track of the limit
  • Monthly limits accumulate the terminal's total authorized amount (Current Value Amount) within the current month, and the value is reset when the month changes. A monthly limit is considered reached when the volume hits 98% (not configurable) of its threshold.
  • 3 - If selected SINGLE TRANSACTION: The limit verification will consider the amount of each transaction performed, to the given configuration.
  • Threshold Limit Value: Applied to every scope, this field defines the limit itself
  • Limit Scope: SINGLE TRANSACTION
  • Without CVV: Applied only to SINGLE TRANSACTION scope, this field establishes that the limit is only applied to transactions without CVV
  • Without AVS: Applied only to SINGLE TRANSACTION scope, this field establishes that the limit is only applied to transactions without AVS


LIMIT HIERARCHY APPLICATION

The limits have a particular hierarchy to be considered.

  • When Defining Volume (DAILY/ MONTHLY) Scope Limits : The Payment gateway always considers the thresholds of the volumes for the three possible elements, from the lower to the higher one in the hierarchy - CARD TYPE (if defined » TERMINAL (if defined) » MERCHANT (if defined). If any of them is reached, the constraint is applied.
  • When Defining Single (SINGLE TRANSACTION) Scope Limits : The Payment Gateway only considers the most specific threshold for the three possible elements, following the order - CARD TYPE » TERMINAL » MERCHANT.

FIELD DESCRIPTION
Show CVV CVV will be required when processing a transaction .
Auto Decline CVV Allows to choose which CVV responses should be considered to decline a transaction.

Enable AVS If this option is checked, the AVS is enabled and two more options will be shown: AVS Compulsory (check field) and If AVS sent (list of options). This setting, when enabled, will show three address fields at the Virtual Terminal and at the Hosted Payment Page – Street, City and Postcode – so the cardholder can provide a card billing address, but that is not mandatory.
AVS Compulsory When selected, this option enables a new field API AVS Type, and ensures that before finishing a transaction cannot be processed without filling in the address fields.
API AVS Type This field defines a configuration for the execution of AVS in API integrations – REST, XML and HPP. Depending on the value selected, the AVS will consider a specific set of fields to be sent to the bank for validation.
- Exact: The fields shown and expected are all three.
- Postal: The only field shown and expected is Postcode.
If AVS sent This field defines a configuration for the Hosted Payment Page (HPP). When an application integrated to a HPP already has the cardholder’s billing address, it’s possible to send this data to the HPP and selecting one of the options in this field you can:
- Hide – selecting “Hide”, the HPP is going to use the address internally on the AVS, but the data is not going to be shown on the HPP.
- Display – selecting “Display”, the address receive by the HPP will be shown and used to execute the AVS, but It’ll not be editable by the user.
- Editable – selecting “Editable”, the address receive by the HPP will be shown and used to execute the AVS, but the user will be able to edit the fields before submiting the payment.
AVS Code Approval Allows to choose which AVS response codes should be considered to approve a transaction.
Approving AVS Codes This list presentes the possible AVS response codes (and description). Depending on the values selected, the terminal is going to consider a transaction approved, if its AVS response code matches any option selected.
