Point of Sale (POS) Glossary
End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) in a POS system refers to the secure manner that data is transmitted to and from a gateway and payment processor. A point of sale system captures customer card and transactional information. It must send this to external third-party processing partners to get authorization for purchases and to complete payments.
E2EE is a secure communication method that prevents unauthorized parties from accessing data during transmission from a point of sale system to processing partners. The credit card industry requires PCI Compliance that includes data protection standards, such as End-to-End Encryption, to protect customer data from hackers. This protection is a critical component to being in compliance with industry standards and in keeping merchants and customers safe from data theft.
Customers love promotions! Buyers are often pulled in by one deal and wind up buying regularly priced merchandise in addition to, or sometimes instead of your discounted items.
