EFTPOS Tray File Submission
The following is the file format to include in *.req files that you place into the directory that is monitored by the EFTPOS Tray application.
*.req Input Files
Each line of the *.req document will have an input property and is divided into sections.
The input file is used to trigger and EFTPOS payment. When it is detected, the EFTPOS software will process the file and start the payment process. The input file contains only one section. Because of this the section name is ignored, and the section marker line may be omitted completely. The following fields are defined:
|TxnType||The type of transaction to perform. Either the initial or the full word can be used. "P" or "Purchase" "R" or "Refund"|
|TxnRef||A reference ID for the transaction. This can be used as a search term in the web reporting framework.|
|AmtPurchase||The total amount of the goods/services that the customer is paying for. This value should include a decimal point. If no decimal point is found the two right-most digits will be used as the cents value.|
|AmtCash||The amount of cash that the customer is withdrawing as part of their payment. This value should include a decimal point. If no decimal point is found the two right-most digits will be used as the cents value.|
|EnablePrintReceipt||True (1) or False (0). Default: False|
|EnablePrintSlip||True (1) or False (0). Default: False|
|EnableBacklight||True (1) or False (0). Default: False|
|EnableTestMode||True (1) or False (0). Default: False|
*.evt Output Files
Each line of the *.evt document will have an output/settlement property and is divided into the following sections. It will also tell you how many lines you should expect in the document and are always in order.
|TxnRef||A reference ID for the transaction. This will be the same as the reference ID from the input file.|
|TxnType||The type of transaction performed. This will be the same as the transaction type from the input file.|
|ReCo||Two-character response code indicating the outcome of the EFTPOS payment. Successful responses are: 00 - Accepted 08 - Accept with signature|
|ResponseCode||Same as ReCo. Provided for compatibility with POS software written for use with PC EFTPOS.|
|ResponseText||Description of the response code.|

|AmtCash||The amount of cash that the customer is withdrawing as part of their payment.|
This should be installed in your Eftpos installation directory and is configured with the file "dpsefttray_cfg.txt", which is documented below. This tray process gives access to control panels of the ActiveX, such as Config/Setup and Maintenance and access to the Payment Express EFTPOS client.
The Tray process also monitors folders for *.req files if a merchant is wanting to interact with the EFTPOS system by submitting our file format.
|InName||Name of the file types to monitor and read. Default: *.req|
|OutName||Name of the file type to output for the result. Default: %n.evt|
|Dir||Directory to monitor for the input files and to place the output files. Default: C:\Program Files\DPS\EFTPOS\FileInterface|
|Enabled||You can enable hotkeys by setting to true (1) or set to false to disable (0). Default: 1|
|Action||This describes what happens when a hotkey is pressed. Values can be "Client" "Maint" &"Setup" which open up the corresponding applications or dialogs.|
|Key||Key to press in conjunction with the Modifier key to access the HotKey. Usually F1-F12. Default: F9|
|Modifier||Service Key to press in conjunction with the "Key" to access the HotKey. Values can be "Win" "Alt" or "Ctrl" and can have multiple modifiers per HotKey.|
You will need to set EnablePrintReceipt to 0 (false) if wishing to control the printing through your own application.
You will need to set EnablePrintReceipt to 1 (true) if you want the Pinpad controller to Print the receipt to your default printer. You can also use the PrinterName property if you are not using the default printer or it's not using a Generic/ Text Only driver and wish to use a specific driver through the Printer Name.
Printing options can be preset in the Pinpad Configuration as well.
The PIN Pad Simulator allows development and testing of Integrated EFTPOS Client Applications, e.g.: Point Of Sale (POS) without requiring connection of specialised hardware for testing. To activate the pinpad simulator, ensure theEnableTestMode property is always set to true prior to calling any method.
