AblePay CONNECTOR is the second generation software solution that provides a superior user experience in giving a robust and reliable tap-to-pay experience for the customer.

The software installs into the AblePay BlueCard and the BluePuck. A software library (iOS and Android) maintained by AblePay is required used by the mobile payment app. AblePay CONNECTOR manages the identification and real-time tracking of payment candidates in the payment zone, selects the customer and gives a robust and consistent tap-to-pay experience for the user regardless of model, brand and covers.

CONNECTOR gives some unique features compared to other Bluetooth® solutions as an anti-collision mechanism and robustness toward signal strength variations in mobile handsets.

  • Superior user experience and robustness

  • NFC like “Tap-to-pay user experience

  • IOS and Android app libraries

  • Developed for multi-lane checkouts & multi-customers

  • Allows POS terminals placed tightly together

  • Multiple payment candidates on single POS terminal

  • Real-time tracking and analysis of closest handsets

  • Anti-collision mechanism

  • Robustness toward phone cover change

  • Bluetooth payment prioritization

  • User preference exchange before connection

  • Background notification

AblePay BlueCard is a SIM/SAM with embedded BLE

AblePay BlueCard is enriched with a fully embedded Bluetooth® 5 radio and antenna inside the card. The card may be used in a payment terminal or with a tailored operating system, as SIM card in standard mobile phones. Deployed as a SIM card, user interaction is performed trough SIM Toolkit (STK). For deployment in POS terminals a proprietary ISO7816 APDU interface is provided.

AblePay BlueCard is available in 2FF, 3FF and 4FF SIM card formats and provides a cost-efficient platform for a range of new proximity services within payment and beaconing. The AblePay BlueCard is the key element for building low-cost contactless merchant payment infrastructures and administered beacon infrastructures.

Our technology is a result of on 10 years’ development at Telenor and SINTEF. SINTEF is the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia, and AblePay holds several patents protecting the technology.

AblePay BluePuck Appterminal

The Ablepay BluePuck is a standalone App payment terminal equipped with a USB interface. The App-terminal has a plug-and-play solution for cash register integration.

BluePuck has RGB colors lights and includes a buzzer for user feedback. BluePuck is pre-installed with the CONNECTOR software. BlueCard and the BluePuck will operate alike and may be deployed in combination.

Easy integration with cloud or local cash registers for rapid deployment. Customization and branding with logos and colors are offered.
