Abstract

Selon cette invention, un système de paiement comprend une machine à empreintes (103) et un dispositif de sécurité postale (PSD) (130) qui stocke le fonds postal à des fins de distribution et qui peut être rechargé par transfert électronique de fonds. Ainsi, le système de paiement peut remplir des fonctions autres que la distribution de fonds postal, par exemple, distribuer des billets de loterie. En ce qui concerne la distribution de fonds postal, la machine à empreintes (103) est programmée pour produire des empreintes (400) sur des étiquettes (403) qui servent de preuve d'affranchissement après déduction du montant d'affranchissement correspondant, distribué à partir du fonds postal stocké dans PSD (130). Quant à la distribution de billets de loterie, la machine à empreintes (103) est programmée pour se connecter à un serveur de loterie à travers un réseau de communications et à transmettre au serveur de loterie des données relatives aux numéros de loterie sélectionnés (1207), au paiement pour l'introduction de données de loterie, etc. Le système de paiement déduit ensuite le montant de paiement qui correspond à l'introduction de données de loterie du fonds postal stocké dans PSD (130). En contrepartie, le système de paiement reçoit du serveur de loterie les données relatives aux empreintes (1300). La machine à empreintes (103) utilise les données reçues pour imprimer des empreintes (1300) sur des étiquettes (1303) afin de produire un billet de loterie.
