Till Payments (Till), global payments fintech disruptor, has announced the release of Terminal Connect. The proprietary in-house solution integrates with a selection of Till’s in-person devices, including its Till Mobile and Till Portable terminals. Terminal Connect enables partners and their merchants to deploy an integration between payment terminals and their Point of Sale (POS) software, unlocking feature-rich capabilities direct from their device screens.
Built on the Android OS, Terminal Connect is cloud-enabled via secure authorization, offering businesses an easy implementation and installation process that can be self-serviceable through their POS system. The low-code solution enables organizations of all shapes and sizes to implement the integration without a need for deep technical expertise. Its unified API spans multiple regions, opening access to merchants and partners around the world.
Equipped with an Android-based emulator, the solution simplifies the development onboarding process by addressing traditional payment integration pain points such as deployment speed and complex migrations. The Terminal Connect emulator – an application that can be downloaded onto any Android-supported device – opens a virtual environment that allows developers to easily start the testing and integration process without the waiting for hardware terminals, thus accelerating go-to-market.
The first iteration of Till’s Terminal Connect has been developed with sector-specific use cases in mind, presenting specialized functionality for businesses in the retail, quick service restaurant, salon & spa, not-for-profit, and services industries. The Australian-based payment firm has plans to introduce functionality for grocery, convenience stores, government, education, and utility in its roadmap.
