Use your PIN via IP: easy & secure

SURFinternetpinnen makes managing PIN and electronic payment systems more easy. Traffic to and from these machines travels over the SURFnet network, which makes separate connections superfluous.

PIN via SURFnet network

SURFnet offers the option to handle traffic to and from IP payment terminals within institutions via the SURFnet network. In that case, you do no longer need a separate ADSL or GSM connection to payment systems.

High reliability and availability

SURFinternetpinnen allows you to make efficient use of your infrastructure because you can connect payment terminals directly to a network connection rather than via ADSL or GSM. This ensures the reliability and availability of the service.

Other advantages of SURFinternetpinnen include:

  • Technical and administrative management of ADSL or GSM connections is no longer required.
  • SURFinternetpinnen can be used to pay with your PIN or credit card.

Who is it for?

SURFinternetpinnen is available for institutions connected to SURFnet. The institution's contact person can apply for SURFinternetpinnen online via SURFdashboard (in Dutch).

Payment traffic via IP network

PIN traffic is transported via the SURFnet network. SURFnet makes use of the Simac network (certified by Currence) to provide this service.

In addition to the SURFnet network and Simac, transporting the traffic from a payment terminal at a SURFnet-connected institution to an acquiring processor via SURFnet's IP network requires that the institution's network complies with the conditions set by Currence.

The illustration below shows how a PIN transaction is transported via IP.

Rate 2018

SURFinternetpinnen costs EUR 53 per month (excluding VAT). This is a flat-fee charge: you can connect up as many payment terminals as you wish.

This is an optional SURFnet service.
