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

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.
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
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:
