Can I use SwipeSimple without an internet connection?

SwipeSimple Payments has Offline Mode that can be used if you are not able to get to a WiFi or cellular data connection. Offline Mode enables capturing swiped or keyed payments without an internet connection that will be processed the next time WiFi or cellular data is available. This feature is only available for the SwipeSimple Mobile Application, and not included with the SwipeSimple Terminal or Register products. 

Important notes

Offline Mode is not compatible with dip (EMV) or tap (NFC) transactions.

You can set a maximum amount for offline transactions when Offline Mode is enabled. This might be a good idea, since offline transactions are more risky than online transactions. Transactions taken in Offline Mode are not approved or declined until network connectivity is re-established

Transactions captured offline are saved until connectivity is regained and will automatically process when the mobile device goes back online and the app is opened. Only a maximum of 50 transactions can be saved.

If you are offline and have taken transactions in Offline Mode, you will see a Pending Transactions tab in the main menu. Once you are back online and the transactions have processed, this will disappear.

Offline transactions expire 30 days after capture if they are not processed.
