Environment & Client Options
Being a cloud based system, Cloud9 has few restrictions on the integration options. The following are some of the possibilities:
- Web Browser
- OS X
Cloud9 Payment Gateway
Cloud9 is essentially a multi-merchant/multi processor switch. Cloud9 reduces the complexity of direct processor and payment terminal programming, certification and compliance by presenting a simple unified interface to the developer with numerous interface options. The core communications are conducted via TLS/SOAP/JSON with wrappers in C/C++/Java, if desired.
Back-Office Reporting Gateway
Cloud9 has a full suite of Back Office Reporting, which can be extended and scripted.
Payment Device Controller (PDC)
Optional Payment Device Controller (PDC) hides the complexity of low level communications with the payment terminals and adds Offline Store & Forward functionality, if desired.
The client (POS/web page/mobile device, etc) can communicate with the PDC, which will in turn control the payment perminal/pin pad and relate the processing instructions to the Cloud9 Payment Gateway.
This is the easiest form of integration and it is recommended.
Note: Variations of Payment Device Controller are Payment Mobile Controller (PMC) and Payment Web Controller (PWC), dealing with mobile and web based payment processing functionality respectively.
→ OPTION1: Local Payment Device Controller with Store and Forward Capability
|The client can communicate with a local Payment Device Controller (PDC) via SOAP, JSON or using the wizard like wrapper, written in C/C++/Java.|
→ OPTION2: No Local Software - Direct Cloud Connection to Cloud9 Payment Web Controller (PWC)
|The client can communicate directly with the cloud Payment Web Controller (PWC) via SOAP, JSON or using the wizard like wrapper, written in C/C++/Java.|
