The PCI Compliant CenPOS gateway can be used with virtually any shopping cart, including Magento, Prestashop and others, without any special integration by using emulators of many popular gateways. CenPOS is a multi-channel payment SaaS that works with merchants existing credit card processors and financial partners.
Payment gateways convert data to acceptable message formats for payment processors. With the emulator, CenPOS takes the merchants existing gateway message and automatically translates it to a CenPOS format which is then sent to the processor. When the transaction is complete, CenPOS converts the response back to the native gateway format. The emulator enables a merchant to change their gateways without any integration.

How do I get started with the CenPOS emulator?
- Ask your relationship manager for the emulator you’d like or contact us for a new account.
- In your shopping cart administration, go to SETTINGS>PAYMENT>PAYMENT GATEWAY. The gateway name will remain the same. The API or account ID, Password or transaction key, and return URL will be replaced with CenPOS information provided to you. If your shopping cart does not let you provide a return URL, the emulator cannot be used.
Why would I want to change my gateway to CenPOS?
- Multi-channel availability with one reporting system for all.
- Extended capabilities. For example, securely storing payment data (check/credit card) with automated reminders to customers to update credit cards; accept mobile payments, electronic bill presentment & payment.
- CenPOS solves many business problems, particularly for mid-size or business to business, automotive, non-profit and health-care industries. Call authorized CenPOS reseller for a consultation.
- If you have a small business that sells items to consumers that are immediately delivered, online shopping is the only method you use to sell, and your system works for you, there may be no compelling reason to change. Free Magento and PrestaShop community editions are not PCI Compliant, but with our free version with native CenPOS integration. CenPOS does not provide shopping cart hosting, consulting, or support other than as it relates to payments.
2017 UPDATE: Due to PCI Compliance and other requirements, emulators are no longer a valid solution. Contact us for a native plugin for your ERP, shopping cart, accounting, and other software needs.
