Progress events are sent from the POI (also known as Pin Entry Device (PED)) to the Sale system (also known as Point of Sale or Cash Register). Progress events do not require any action by the cash register. They inform the staff of what is happening on the POI.
Progress events are returned in the
ReferenceID, as an
event value (possible values are listed in the Progress events section).

TransactionID (POI ID / tender reference) and
For Display requests, the

If an Event notification refers to a specific request, the header will include the
ServiceID of that request, otherwise the
ServiceID will not be included.

ServiceIDcombinations are rejected if used recently, within 48 hours.
There are two types of messages, display messages and event notifications.
- Display messages: messages and events sent during services (such as payment) that include transaction status information. Will be sent to the IP that started the transaction (in a local setup) and at endpoints configured by the POS Support Team.
- Event messages: sent to the Sale System outside of the payment flow, for example, going down for maintenance, available after maintenance, etc.
