Offline Store & Forward
Store & Forward functionality is a function of Payment Device Controller. Store & Forward Mode is an optional transparent offline mode that allows POS to continue taking credit cards without delays during connectivity failures. After a set number of unsuccessful connections, rush mode is initiated and the credit card transactions are recorded offline for later processing. A countdown timer is initiated to keep the transactions from retrying the connection for some time to speed up the processing and avoid the timeout delays. At the expiration of the timer, the connection is retried and rush mode is exited if connection is successful. Store & Forward mode is optional and has to be enabled and configured to become active.
