If a customer owns website with product catalog and wants to provide customers with the functionality of an interactive storefront, there are typical task arises to deploy this site on a payment kiosk.

1. Kiosk interface is a web application that runs inside the Electron framework and is a special copy of the Chrome browser at modern engine.
2. As part of the solution, there are internal mechanisms that allow to interact with environment of the kiosk. These universal functions provide work with specific equipment, as a result, for example, the payment method is entirely performed on the side of the self-service kiosk.
3. The website itself will need to be modified to implement a single call to a specific method over a specific protocol. Next, the customer will be able to open the payment interface on the kiosk and provide clients with access to payment.

5. Payment processing occurs in a similar way to acquiring. Payment information is sent to our server and then exported to the customer’s accounting system. We pay special attention to security — since there is no way to guarantee the authenticity of the payment transaction in the web browser itself, payment data is sent through a separate channel.
