MacPOS works only with WorldPay to provide the highest level of security for credit card processing. Using WorldPad removes the point-of-sale software from the scope of PCI-DSS regulations and ensures card information will not be breached. We are adding support for additional processors in a future update. WorldPay will match or beat the existing rates you pay.
