Question about the Electroneum vendor api


#1

Question.
Must the point of sale computer have internet access for the transaction to be completed?

Hello @Rstar I think you do need internet in order to complete a transaction because it has to be send to the blockchain I might be wrong on that but I think you need it :thinking:

Yes you do need internet to get instant confirmation. If you trust the customer and are willing to trust the send notification on their app, the funds are on the way and you can give them the goods. But if you want your own notification to be absolutely sure of everything, you need to have your POS connected to the internet and hooked up to the API.
