Accepting passes at your point of sale involves integrating PassKit into your existing point of sale (POS) infrastructure. PassKit offers APIs and tools that allow you to scan and process passes directly within your POS software.
Here's a general outline of the process:
Ensure you have a PassKit account. Familiarize yourself with the types of passes you'll accept, such as event tickets, loyalty cards, coupons, or membership passes. Each pass type may have specific data and actions associated with it.
Ensure that your POS system is compatible with PassKit. An example of one is EATS365 which has a native integration with PassKit. However, a POS which has an API, or supports Zapier should support integration.
Integrate using the PassKit API: Connect PassKit with your POS system by following the integration instructions provided by PassKit. This typically involves incorporating PassKit's APIs or SDKs into your existing POS platform or middleware.
Before going live, conduct thorough testing to ensure that the pass acceptance process works seamlessly within your POS system.
Once you are done, you can begin to accept passes at your point of sale. When a customer presents a pass for redemption, you can scan the pass using your point-of-sale system.
Remember to consult PassKit's specific documentation or support resources for detailed integration instructions.
