GlobeSet Offers ServerPOS for Commerce Enablers

GlobeSet Inc. delivered GlobeSet ServerPOS for merchants, banks, Internet and commerce service providers.

The product offers a software solution built upon the current SET Marked GlobeSet POS, a payment server application that connects the merchant to the cardholder's wallet application and to financial payment gateways.

The GlobeSet ServerPOS is a multiple protocol server that supports both Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) payments. The architecture provides merchants with a transparent migration path to SET, allowing for secure transactions with encryption and authentication, the company said.

GlobeSet ServerPOS is comprised of a POS engine that resides on a centralized server at the acquiring bank or service provider location and performs all associated payment transaction operations. A storefront adapter, residing at the merchant's Web server, is a thin client that securely links the storefront's shop-and-buy application to the POS engine over the Internet. Pricing was not disclosed.

Traditional POS applications typically require the merchant to host a server application that handles transaction request information between a customer's electronic wallet and a financial payment gateway. With the advent of the GlobeSet ServerPOS, the merchant now has the ability to link between a storefront adapter and a server-based POS engine at a bank or service provider's operation center. This eliminates the need for the merchant to become proficient in hosting and managing Internet payment systems, the company said.
