Processing Equipment

In addition to accepting online payment via CASHNet, departments may have Point of Sale (POS) systems that utilize vendor equipment for payment card processing. Departments are prohibited from purchasing processing equipment without explicit permission from Credit Card Operations. No processing equipment that could cause risk to the University of Arkansas will be approved for use. Departments are required to contact Credit Card Operations to evaluate any potential product purchase.

Departments accepting walk-up (in office) payments or telephone payments MUST use a counter-top swipe terminal device supplied by Financial Affairs. Signature acceptance of the terminal lease agreement for the monthly lease fee is required before a swipe terminal can be provided to the department. Please contact Credit Card Operations for addtional information.

Any department wanting to offer customers a way to make online credit card payments may contact Credit Card Operations for additional information regarding a CASHNet eCommerce account.
