How it Works
TAPPoint is a revolutionary way to be able to take secure eCommerce payments as well as contact-free payments without the need of a payment terminal in a card present environment.
TAPPoint makes eCommerce sites secure by passing the liability to the consumer, creating a bridge between the eCommerce site and a mobile wallet payment. This way the Payment is initiated on the Smartphone using mobile wallets and once completed sent securely to the eCommerce site to finalize the transaction.
Whether at the retail register, on a delivery, at curbside or even at a restaurant table, TAPPoint creates a complete contact free payment environment without the need of a payment terminal in order to process the payment. This allows merchants to take a secure payment and reduce having the capital needed for equipment.
TAPPoint has an entire suite of solutions to streamline unattended payments. This includes the ability to use closes loop or open loop wearables all tied back to an extensive mobile wallet that allows the consumer to manage all payments and activity and helps the merchant get their secure payments.
TAPPoint was created by SoftPoint an expert in card-present and integration solutions for the hospitality market. TAPPoint is based on the necessity to streamline and secure customer facing and eCommerce payments.

In order to simplify payments on eCommerce sites and to secure them further, TAPPoint created the ability to simply call one API that returns a tokenized QRCode. Our patented technology then allows the user to make a secure payment using their own Smartphone.
Here is how it works; The QRCode we return has a stored link. The user can then take their phone and scan the QRCode with their camera. This will take the user to a secure browser payment page on their phone. The user can then pay with their mobile wallet or with a slew of other payment options. Once the Payment is completed TAPPoint replies to the eCommerce site with the validation of the payment.

TAPPoint originally was created to service the unattended market. Our solution allows merchants to have customers use a preassigned wristband or white-label mobile wallet to make payments. Our most publicized user of TAPPoint is at VyStar Arena where we created a system with Tended Bar. The system works hand and hand with our SoftPoint ePAT Point of Sale and our DATAPOINT Payment Solution. We start by scanning a customers' license to verify their age, then enter their credit card and issue them a wristband. The process takes less than 30 seconds. The customer can now use the wristband without assistance on Tended Bar.
With the call for 'social distancing' our solution minimizes coming in contact with the least number of public use surfaces. TAPPoint has created an entire line of solutions for businesses to implement. Our solution can be used at conferences, concerts, cafeterias, schools, healthcare, arena or practically anywhere you would like to speed up the payment process.
- Our unattended system can work on an open loop or closed loop environment. We can process an at-the-moment payment or we can do recurring incremental authorizations and one final sale at a specific time.
