You can create an application for each solution you implement, in order to have everything organized and maintain control that makes management easier.

Important
For Point mini and Point blue machines, the app is required to perform and manage charges. For POS and SmartPOS, the app is only needed to login with QR Code.

The POS API integrated mode is only available to be operated by a store operator. If it is implemented in self-service mode, it will be the full responsibility of the business since the devices are not enabled to be used in this type of business model.

If all requirements have been met, follow the steps below to perform the integration with Point.
