What is an "API"?

API stands for "Application Programming Interface", which is a software intermediary that enables two or more applications to communicate with one another. APIs enable organizations to extract and share data in an accessible manner. Today, APIs are the foundation of many applications and technologies that we use on a daily basis — similar to the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

YES! Omnivore is certified by Coalfire, QSA to be compliant with the requirements of PCI-DSS v3.2 as a service provider. Our Attestation of Compliance (AOC) is available on request. This certification process involves a yearly audit of all policies, procedures, and systems within Omnivore to ensure full compliance with all 240+ discrete requirements.

Does Omnivore require additional hardware to connect to apps?

Does Omnivore require additional software to connect to apps?

Only Omnivore's agent software is installed on the back-of-house POS server which will communicate with Omnivore's cloud services.
