Hi Goran,

Is there a third option for Invoice signing in Samoa? Customers are asking if they can sign just using a certificate, i.e. without a secure card.

Please let me know what I need to do to get the product certified is this is an option.

Hi Sanjay,

Yes indeed, as a matter of fact you are one of the rare developers who utilize digital certificate from the smart card to approach V-SDC, which is a legitimate option by the way, but requires your customer to procure smart card reader. Anyways, looks like a flashback because I think we discussed this couple of years ago in Fiji. Doesn't matter, please take a look at the POS developer instruction document, and utilize PFX file to target V-SDC.

For any assistance send email to so some of our developers can help you solve any issues you stumble across.
best regards,

Thanks Goran,

Yes, I remember discussing this with you in the FRCS office some time ago.
Let me read through and implement this - It would be easier for clients to use PFX
