What is an OPT?

OPT: Outdoor Payment Terminal

It is classified as an outdoor payment kiosk and usually it is installed at the gas station forecourt, beside the fuel dispenser.
It allows to perform payment at the pump with or without the needs of operator with different method of payment such as: Cash Card, Debit Card, Credit Card, Fleet Card, Vouchers, mobile wallet.
It is directly interfaced to the fuel dispenser thus it allows preset the amount of fuel to be dispensed and directly collect the amount to be paid without the need of operator inputs
OPT will also lock the dispenser and authorise it automatically only when a valid payment card is used thus preventing frauds or thefts
