Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9963744A1] System (100) includes a PSTN (102), POS devices (credit card terminals, etc.) (104), additional POS (106) which are configured with dial up facilities, POS control system (105), switching control points (108), a customer service center (110), a service data point (112) (central data stores for card state and usage data), a WAN system (114), a ANI server (116), and a WAN access switch (118). During a point-of-sale transaction, the POS system transmits a request related to the pre-paid calling card via the communication network to the processing system. The processing system coupled to the service data point performs a transaction in accordance with the transaction request and transmits a status response message back to the point-of-sale system indicating whether the transaction was performed in accordance with the transaction request.
