ePurse Smart Card
ePurseONE Cashless Payment System for off-line payments at any time anywhere

ePurseONE

Cashless Payment System

ePurse should not be mistaken for a credit card. Credit card does NOT contain any money stored in the chip or magnetic stripe. It really represents membership number tied to the account number somewhere in the server. That means when card is swiped system will connect to server through extensive communications infra structure and validate if there is enough money left in account to pay for something. That happens EVERY TIME when purchase is made. Tens, hundreds or thousands times per second, day or night. You guess it right, communications infra structure for credit card system like that must be nothing less than ever present, perfect would be a better word.

On other hand ePurse or electronic purse is a smart card where money is securely stored in the chip itself. It supports off-line transactions and no communications with server is required for successful purchase. If there is Internet or network it may enhance experience but if there is none system will still work fine. Many countries and places like that come to mind. For example: whole Africa, big part of South America, Central America, countries in Asian subcontinent and more ...

Our payment system is called ePurseONE and may be used as universal cashless payment system. Depending on size and features selected it may use different terminals to perform payments.

Creating new card can't be easier!

Is ePurseONE really easy? How it works?

Basic operations with ePurseONE

It is very easy to use ePurseONE starter package. If it was purchased with optional mini Mini PC it comes with software loaded. It is standard, fully functional PC with Windows 10. Needs mouse, keyboard and monitor. Cards work right out of the box. As soon as new card is placed on the reader software opens the screen with ready to log-in prompt:

ePurseONE main screen

 Merchant logs in using credentials created. ePurseONE recognizes 4 different users in the system:

  1. Owner - operator, as admin he can do everything in the system and create other users
  2. Sales person
  3. Sales person who can top up customer's cards
  4. Sales person who can top up customer's cards and issue new card

Settings menu reveals several options like:

  1. General settings
  2. Edit menu buttons
  3. Sales report
  4. Top-up report
  5. Top-up balance
  6. Withdraw money
  7. Manage user access
  8. Security settings

General settings allows the following:

Allows setting of base currency to be used in the store and also alternate currency. There is exchange rate box setting where shop owner can setup desired exchange rate. This is very useful for places that regularly serve customers in two currencies. For example Caribbean with ECD (Eastern Caribbean Dollars) and USD (United Sates Dollars). When card is created it will immediately be set to work with 2 currencies as shown above.

It is very easy to create new card. Just place card out of the box on top of the reader and enter a few fields. Card can be personalized with name but that is optional. or security reasons card can not be edited after it was created:

PIN is optional with a twist: customer controls at which amount system should ask for PIN. That makes small payments for: fast food, newspapers, sandwich in the school fast and practical. Makes card more secure and could be given to a minor if needed. See screen shot above.

ePurseONE has built-in practical and simple shopping cart POS (Point of Sale) menu system. Store owner can easily add new items to the list as shown in the following example:

   

There is also menu where store owner can create several groups of products and give them practical names:

System also has built-in rewards points that are written in every card and transaction automatically:

Established customers will keep coming back in order to earn and redeem points for merchandise. Store owner defines a redeem values. For example free soft drink for every 10.00 (any currency) spent.

When card needs top-up it is done securely and efficiently from the following utility:

As it is visible from screen above, system tracks how much money is available for top up and how much money was topped up. That prevents internal theft. Only store owner can make top-up amount available.

ePurseONE has basic reporting built-in:

Using date range settings it is possible to review sales and top-up activity for selected dates. Reports are available to store owner only. Manual that comes with software explains everything in greater detail. We believe that system is simple, secure and efficient. In fast moving environment manual will not be needed. Few clicks or keystrokes is all that is needed to complete sale!

Abive pre-set amount system will ask for PIN to validate transaction

  • no Internet or network required! This ePurseONE works on single PC, laptop or even Windows tablet
  • card balance could be checked at any time by simply placing it on the reader. It does not affect balance
  • sales person can only deduct money from the card
