APOLLO smart terminal
The all-in-one payment terminal you'll ever need
The first smart terminal by Spectra Technologies, designed with user-centered in mind, APOLLO works perfectly standalone or integrated with the POS system. The hardware and software are certified with the PCI & EMV standards.
The payment core handles payment request from either POS via RESTful API, Android Intent, or directly from the keyboard in the sales app. The payment core is highly configurable via MARS and will direct payment requests to the dedicated payment processors or banks.
Whether it is credit card like Visa, Mastercard or mobile wallets like Apple Pay or Alipay, the Payment core accepts any form of payment:
- Contactless payment (NFC)
- Chip card (EMV)
- Magstripe card (MSR)
- QR code payment (QR)
The terminal apps are Android application pre-loaded in the APOLLO, which provides payment, reporting, and terminal configuration features to merchants.

APOLLO is Android-based, and it works seamlessly with many apps that you are already using and love — from ordering, reporting, bookkeeping, customer relationship management, and more for your every need. The App marketplace allows merchant to manage and download Apps. Apps published can be from third developers, Spectra or even merchant themselves. All apps must be inspected and approved before publishing to the Marketplace. For security, the Marketplace can be private to dedicated acquirers, terminal owners or merchants.
The APOLLO SDK is designed for both payment and non-payment applications. You use the Payment SDK to build your payment applications to process EMV or credit card transactions via the secure module in APOLLO. The non-payment SDK allows you to develop value-added applications on SAM, MiFare, or QR code.
