For Payment Terminals supported by Adyen for use of the Services, Adyen provides and supports two types of POS Software:

  • Payment Terminal Software: The software loaded in the Payment Terminal itself.
  • POS Device Libraries: Software building blocks that can be used by Merchant to integrate in software loaded on third party POS devices like tablets and cash registers (“POS Devices”) to link such POS Device to the Payment Terminal.
