Tell Me About ... Card Present Processing

Modified on Thu, 18 May 2023 at 04:37 PM


Passport’s Card Present Processing feature enables you to use Passport Payments to manage, view, and reconcile transactions made at certified physical point-of-sale devices (e.g., meters and pay stations). By consolidating both digital and physical transactions into a single platform, you can streamline operations, gain valuable insights, and reduce costs across your operations.

What Is Passport Payments Card Present? This stand-alone payments option provides any hardware vendor certified to our backend settlement platform with the ability to submit authorized transaction batches to Passport for processing. It will allow Passport to support third-party POS device processing and settlement capabilities for Card Present (CP) Meters and unattended kiosks and extend partner opportunities via MID share.


  • Better efficiency through daily settlement and automated reconciliation options 

  • Significant savings and increased cash flow while reducing processing fees by up to 50%

  • Flexible pricing and numerous payment options

  • Improved staff and customer experiences with efficient reporting 

What do settlement and funding look like? 

The Card Present Processing feature will be able to support Daily and Monthly settlement. 

Note: Settlement is the transfer of value from the cards used to purchase a parking session to the clients’ merchant bank account (managed by Passport). 

Each day, via Worldpay, Passport collects the total credit and debit card purchases (settlement), removes the card network and merchant processing fees (net settlement), and transfers the net settlement funds to the client’s merchant bank account.  

The Settlement process typically takes 2-3 days to complete. For example, Daily Settlement clients would receive transaction activity from Monday (5/1) on Wednesday (5/3). 

Note: You can choose to receive settlement on a weekly or monthly basis. Weekly and monthly settlement options will accrue into Passport’s reserve settlement account under the same structure as daily. Funding to the you will occur at a mutually defined date.


Each of these reports enables you to locate records and cross reference with your existing information. All reports provide the ability to use filters to narrow search results, schedule report, and download.
