This section will describe how to open and connect your processor to the Appfront platform
Appfront is running transactions as part of its eCommerce, online ordering module.
Our solution is PCI Level 1 compliance, i.e. the highest level of security for "card not present" (CNP) transactions. Accepting credit cards via internet is much more risky and takes much deeper level of encryption than a card present, i.e. swiping card via POS transaction.
Our solution unique allows:
Save cards on file, cross platform (mobile, web, etc)
Vast of anti fraud mechanisms
We support many types of processors around the world and we are constantly adding more providers. In order to connect Appfront to your processor, you will have to share your account credentials with Appfront's integration team.

How does it work?
Integrating AppFront transactions to process directly with Toast processing:
AppFront able to send orders to Toast with payments that go directly through your POS, and not a separate payment gateway / processor (i.e., World-pay, First Data, Stripe, Braintree, etc)
Your online ordering payment batch will be together with Toast - same time, same processing pricing.
What does it mean on the day to day?
You are doing everything directly from your Toast POS. No need to do nothing on the AppFront side.
Void And Refund - now you can do it directly from Toast POS (and not from AppFront portal)
Partial Refunds! - can be done directly from Toast as well (no need to contact [email protected])
Edit checks and add items - now you can also find the checks in Toast, and add more items for example
Save credit card information as before - Your customers will still be able to save their credit card details on the App / online ordering, but after the transfer to the Toast payments, they will need to re-enter their credit card information
Special Set Up in Toast
Currently, once you connect the online ordering, Toast "acts" like it is an in-store transaction (same as swiping card), and generate a receipt with a signature line.
This is a known issue in Toast and they will update it in future release (no availble dates - we will keep you posted once we get an update). In the meantime, there are a few workaround that can be done:
