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

SURFinternetpinnen to be phased out

SURFinternetpinnen is no longer available to new institutions. The service will soon be phased out once existing institutions have migrated their PIN terminals to the regular internet.

PIN via SURF network

SURF offers the option to handle traffic to and from IP payment terminals within institutions via the SURF 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.

Payment traffic via IP network

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

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