  • Publication number: 20140067662
    Abstract: In a method for using an automatic machine by a user for processing a payment transaction with respect to an internet purchase between the user and an e-commerce provider, the e-commerce provider or the automatic machine requests an identification code for a payment transaction from a background system. The background system assigns an identification code, wherein the identification code identifies the internet purchase, and transmits the identification code to the e-commerce provider or the automatic machine. The e-commerce provider or the automatic machine transmits the identification code and/or a payment request to the user. The user makes a payment to the automatic machine and the automatic machine sends a confirmation of payment to the background system. Subsequently, the payment between the automatic machine and the background system and between the background system and an acquiring account is cleared.

  • Publication number: 20110079642
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for the preferably cashless processing especially of machine-related transactions using a memory card (4), wherein upon detection of the memory card (4), usage is enabled by a machine (3) which is in communication (2) with a database (5) and/or a processing unit (1) and usage-related transaction data are transmitted from the machine (3) to the database (1) and/or the processing unit (1). It is an object of the invention to further develop a method of the this kind to that extent that the intended function of the machine or smartcard writing/reading device can be achieved independently of an existing communication link between the machine or the smartcard writing/reading device and the local database. As a solution, the invention proposes that the usage-related transaction data are stored on the memory card (4) at least temporarily and the memory card (4) is thus utilized as an information transfer medium.
