Solution to use Contactless or Chip+PIN with Wodify Point of Sale
Customers vastly prefer the concept of PayWave/PayPass (Visa vs Mastercard) solutions of small payments or the use of Chip+PIN here in Australia.
Swiping a card is going out of style for point of sale solutions.
While wodify does not even require a signature for authorisation for proof of purchase/validation of card owner, providing the structure for Wodify to interface against a PayPass/PayWave or Chip+PIN functionality would secure the affiliate owner from dubious credit card use via swipe or typing in card details.
Looking into the details, the EFTPOS terminals typically require configuration from the provider (in Australia thats Ezidebit) however they do not offer EFTPOS functionality. Solutions need to be investigated for EFTPOS Terminals that could work as an 'advanced' USB swiper that can take Chip+PIN or contactless payment with something like: http://www.pceftpos.com/media/iPP300_Series.pdf
These contactless payment services also work with Google Wallet and no doubt the Apple equivalent.
The last we spoke with Ezidebit this type of hardware was in their 18 month roadmap. Since some time has passed we will be looking in 2017 to learn more about these different kind of payments in an effort to further integrate them with Wodify.

This would actually make Wodify POS useful in Australia if this was integrated
