Conversion Process

netPark Pay is netPark’s new payment processing solution. As part of this rollout, netPark is working with our clients and their installers to get the HTK & CTK Self Park devices updated. This guide walks through the conversion kit as well as the process that an installer would need to run through in order to perform this conversion.

The EMV readers require additional ports to be configured before use. These ports are already documented in our System, Hardware and Network Requirements guide, but are listed here for brevity.
  • Outbound TCP 443 to “

Datacap Status

The Datacap server manages the communication between the EMV reader and the backend server. On the back of the Datacap device is a QR code. When this code is scanned it directs to a website that shows the status of the device. This can be useful for troubleshooting issues with connectivity or functionality.    

Note on Voiding & Crediting

The netPark Pay Processing has a 1 day limitation for refunding payments taking via the Kiosk. Payments can only be refunded up until the batch is settled for the day. Once the batch has been settled you will need to get the credit card details from the customer again and process a refund via the Register Transactions screen.

The TranCloud unit has a helpful power indicator in the bottom left corner that illuminates to display various status codes.

If you have confirmed the internet connection is good, please contact netPark Support.

If the issue persists, please contact netPark Support
