'PIN and Signature' on receipt


(Allie) #1

Has anyone seen this? It was a Google Pay transaction with no PIN or signature.

Hmm, Ref: PIN & SIG. Not seen that before myself…

I’ve not seen that when I have used Apple Pay but I would imagine that when you use your finger print or face ID to initiate the payment that would class the same as entering your pin?

This makes sense to me, or it’s just a badly designed terminal.

Doesn’t look like a terminal receipt to me. Seems like it’s the POS that’s printing those based on the data returned by the terminal, and either incorrectly parsing the response or just has “PIN & Signature” hardcoded because back when this was developed contactless wasn’t a thing.

Also, does nobody think about user experience when developing these things? This has got to be the shittiest-looking receipt I’ve seen in a while. They could make it so much better by reordering some of the stuff on there (and removing redundant information).

The receipt itself shows No Cardholder Verification, so it’s using the same system as a normal contactless card for ‘authentication’…

Technically it says ‘O CARDHOLDER VERIFICATION’ :slight_smile:

Yeah, well, clearly someone didn’t align the printer/receipt paper/check the print width.


(Allie) #10

It’s not paper cut off the edge, but yeah it’s width of the string. Still odd to cut off the first character, not the last.


(Colin Robinson) #11

Right aligned text in a fixed width print field?

Never seen that but I’m more interested in how good Sprinkles is! I’ve never heard of them but I’m a big fan of Swoon which is just up the hill a bit

Not great… I’ll have to check out Swoon!
