V-Link Overview

Terminal Solutions for POS integration

Supporting various connectivity options to the POS, the V-Link interface makes connecting Verifone terminals to POS PC applications or ECR systems even easier. Supporting threes message protocols, the V-Link interface offers multiple choices of functionality and hardware devices.

Easy to implement in both small and large environments, V-Link supports three separate ASCII message formats providing 1 or 2 way messaging with the option of EFTPOS receipts being printed on the POS printer.

The Verifone V-Link protocols are:

  • Gen-Link - 1 way
  • VL-Link - 2 way
  • VX-Link - 2 way with optional POS printing of the EFTPOS receipt.

As all Verifone terminals use a standard payment application, merchants have peace of mind knowing the payment application used with V-Link is mass market proven.

Supporting Serial, USB, IP and Wi-Fi connectivity options to the POS, the V- Link interface offers merchants a range of connectivity options that best meets their needs supporting fast, efficient transactions speeds.


V-Link provides multiple communication options to the Paymark switch including IP or dial and can operate independent of the POS should there be a POS hardware failure.

As V-Link is not reliant on the POS operating environment there are no constraints as to which Windows version the POS application is running under. The VX-Link interface provides the option of suppressing unnecessary merchant copies of EFTPOS receipts thus saving on consumable costs.

Supporting remote software downloads, V-Link provides merchants with the opportunity to reuse existing Verifone hardware and remotely download the V-Link interface to provide a fully functional POS interfaced terminal in a matter of minutes.
