Clearent’s Cloud EMV
For a semi-integrated payment solution, developers can easily integrate to Clearent’s Cloud EMV API to provide payment authorizations. As a POS developer, you will send all necessary data (minus the card data) through an API call to the cloud. The cloud will contact the terminal, wake up the terminal and the terminal will ask for card data.

Once the card data is inserted, the terminal will make the downstream call to Clearent’s payment gateway for authorization approval. Once that is received, the terminal will send the response back to the POS system through Clearent’s Cloud EMV.

This approach allows all card data to bypass the POS, reducing PCI scope and taking the POS out the EMV certification process.
