I can stream digital content without any interruption but my EFTPOS transaction fails

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Vend on iPad
  • Integrated payment terminal

Answer

When you stream music or videos over the internet you are buffering i.e: preloading data into a reserved area of memory (the buffer). Whereas with Vend and Processors the operation happens in realtime which means when you process transactions and the upload/download speeds fluctuate, there may be packet losses thus slowing down or declining the transaction.
