The Commbank Albert can be used as an integrated EFTPOS device for Kounta in two different methods:

  1. Kounta on Albert: You can process transactions and take integrated payments on the Albert itself.

  2. Kounta to Albert: You can trigger payments from other devices using the Kounta App, to the Albert terminal. Continue along for setup steps. 

In this configuration you would have Kounta running on a compatible device (e.g. iOS, PC, etc) and would be triggering payment to a Commbank Albert device for finalisation.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Commbank Albert with the Kounta App installed from the App Bank
  • Compatible Device with a Kounta Register loaded. Example: iPad 
  • Stable Internet Connection
