FEATURE PHONE POS to Feature Phone Payment
USE CASE DESCRIPTION
Enabling a simple 1-step (micropayment) OR 2-step (PIN payment) between a Merchant (payee) and a Customer (payer), where the Merchant and the Customer have Feature Phones.
TEST INSTRUCTIONS (AFRICA REGION):
Choose any 2 Feature Phones, one representing the Merchant POS (payee) and the other a Customer Handset (payer).
Once done use the following steps to test the solution:
STEP 1 (with the "Merchant" Handset)
Dial +27 87 250 2145 and follow the IVR (voice instructions) to enter the Payment Amount due such as 2# (for $2), upon which the remote server will begin broadcasting a QR Code Sound File.
STEP 2 (with the "Customer" Handset)
Dial +27 87 250 2771 and hold the handset near the Merchant Handset while it broadcasts the QR Code sound file. NOTE: when entering a payment amount due of 20# ($20) or more, the customer handset will ring with IVR (voice instructions) to enter a demo PIN 0000 before STEP 3 happens.
Both Merchant and Customer handsets receive their respective text-based transaction receipts.
NOTES & DISCLAIMER
Feature Phones use voice channel communication by default, without requiring software.
Long distances between DIALR servers and the location of testing parties can increase latency.
DIALR Servers can be deployed in closer proximity to potential customers to guarantee near-instant transaction speeds when/where required.
