Description

  The present invention relates to a settlement server, a settlement system, a settlement method, and a settlement program that are used for settlement in a face-to-face sales system using a settlement means that replaces cash.

  2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, there is a settlement method in which a commodity price or a service price is paid using a settlement means that replaces cash such as a credit card, a debit card, or electronic money. Such a payment method allows the user to receive the provision of goods and services without carrying a large amount of cash, for example, and eliminates the hassle of handling small changes. You can enjoy sex.

  Such settlement using a settlement means instead of cash is often performed in the form of a so-called face-to-face sales method in which sales are made through customer service. Specifically, for example, when making a payment in the form of a face-to-face sales method using a card such as a credit card, a debit card or an electronic money card as a payment means in place of cash, the user makes a request to a store (clerk) , Hand the card used for payment. Specifically, when a software for managing electronic money is installed and payment is made in the form of a face-to-face sales method using a mobile terminal device such as a mobile phone charged with electronic money, The portable terminal device is brought into contact with the terminal of the store.

  Also, conventionally, for example, a payment relay server that has received barcode data of a payment slip transmitted from a mobile terminal records the generated multiple payment identifier in association with the barcode data, and then transmits the multiple payment identifier to the bank host system. Then, the bank host system performs a withdrawal process on the user's account for which user authentication has been completed and sends a completion notification to the settlement relay server via the mobile terminal. The settlement relay server that receives the completion notification uses the payment slip. There has been a technique for notifying a company system of a company that collects a price that the collection of the price has been completed (see, for example, Patent Document 1 below).

  However, the above-described conventional technology hands over the card or the mobile terminal device to the store side when the settlement is performed using a method other than cash such as a credit card, a debit card, or electronic money by a face-to-face sales method. For this reason, there is a problem that information stored in the card or the portable terminal includes a risk that it is read by a store-side device such as a payment terminal device.

  In addition, in the conventional technology described above, for example, when performing payment using a means other than cash, such as a credit card or a debit card, using a face-to-face sales method, it is necessary to input a password to a terminal installed at the store side. Therefore, for example, there is a risk that a PIN code can be easily obtained if a store installs a video camera etc. and the user uses the video camera to steal the operation of inputting the PIN number. There was a problem of being.

  In addition, regarding the electronic money in the above-described conventional technology, the ID and balance of the electronic money are managed in the mobile terminal device, and identity verification is not performed in the face-to-face sales method settlement using the electronic money. Generally, when a portable terminal device that manages (stores) an electronic money ID or balance is lost or stolen, a reissue procedure is required.

  For this reason, in the conventional technology described above, if the portable terminal device that manages (stores) the electronic money ID or balance is lost or stolen, the period until the reissue procedure is completed is lost or There has been a problem that a person who finds a stolen portable terminal device has a risk that electronic money managed (stored) by the portable terminal device may be easily abused.

When the store terminal device 120 receives a predetermined input operation by a store clerk or a user, the store terminal device 120 receives an input of a payment amount paid by the user to the store. Then, the shop terminal device 120 transmits the payment amount received (or payment amount information including information that can identify the payment amount) to the settlement mediation server 131. In addition to the payment amount, the store terminal device 120 includes information that can specify a store terminal device ID that identifies the store terminal device 120 that is a transmission source of the payment amount.

  The transaction number generation unit 802 generates a transaction number for the payment amount received by the payment amount reception unit 801. Each time the payment amount information is received by the payment amount receiving unit 801, the transaction number generation unit 802 generates a transaction number for the payment amount included in the payment amount information. The transaction number is information that can identify each settlement performed using the settlement system 100, and can be realized by, for example, a serial number indicating the order in which the payment amount information is received by the payment amount reception unit 801. .

  Alternatively, the transaction number may be generated based on the date and time when the payment amount information is received by the payment amount receiving unit 801, for example. Specifically, for example, when the date and time when payment amount information is received by the payment amount reception unit 801 is “15:49:25 on April 15, 2010”, the transaction number generation unit 802 stores the transaction “201004151554925”. A number can be generated.

  The storage unit 803 stores the transaction number generated by the transaction number generation unit 802 in association with the payment amount and the store terminal device ID. The storage unit 803 associates the transaction number generated by the transaction number generation unit 802, the payment amount included in the payment amount information received by the payment amount reception unit 801, and the store terminal device ID, and stores the transaction information table 500. To remember.

  For example, every time a transaction number is generated by the transaction number generation unit 802, the storage unit 803 stores the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID in association with each other in the transaction information table 500. In addition, for example, every time a transaction number is generated by the transaction number generation unit 802, the storage unit 803 associates the transaction number with a status flag and stores them in the transaction information table 500. The storage unit 803 appropriately updates the status flag in the transaction information table 500 so as to indicate “processing” or “completed” based on the content of communication with the user terminal device 110 or the store terminal device 120.

  The transaction number transmission unit 804 transmits the transaction number generated by the transaction number generation unit 802 to the store terminal device 120. The transaction number transmission unit 804 stores the transaction number generated by the transaction number generation unit 802 for the payment amount included in the payment amount information received by the payment amount reception unit 801, and the store terminal device included in the payment amount information. It transmits to the store terminal device 120 identified by the ID.

  Each time the transaction number generation unit 802 generates a transaction number, the transaction number transmission unit 804 transmits the generated transaction number to the corresponding store terminal device 120. Alternatively, each time the transaction number generated by the transaction number generation unit 802 is stored in the storage unit 803, the transaction number transmission unit 804 transmits the stored transaction number to the corresponding store terminal device 120. Good.

  When the store terminal device 120 receives the transaction number transmitted by the transaction number transmission unit 804, the store terminal device 120 visualizes and outputs the received transaction number. The store terminal device 120 generates, for example, a QR code (see reference numeral 1210 in FIG. 12) indicating the transaction number transmitted by the transaction number transmission unit 804, and the smartphone that realizes the store terminal device 120 using the generated QR code The transaction number is visualized by displaying it on the display 204 included in.

  In the first embodiment, the QR code indicating the transaction number transmitted by the transaction number transmission unit 804 is generated in the store terminal device 120, but the present invention is not limited to this. For example, in the payment intermediary server 131, a QR code indicating the transaction number transmitted by the transaction number transmission unit 804 is generated, and image data representing the QR code is downloaded from the payment intermediation server 131 to the store terminal device 120 and downloaded. The QR code image may be displayed on the display 204.

  The user terminal device 110 receives an input of a transaction number visualized by the store terminal device 120. For example, the following (i), (ii), or (iii) can be used for receiving the transaction number visualized by the store terminal device 120 in the user terminal device 110 and transmitting the user terminal device ID. A pattern is assumed.

(I)
The first pattern is that when the user terminal device 110 receives an input of a transaction number in the user terminal device 110, the transaction number and the user terminal device ID that have received the input are displayed in the payment intermediary server 131 (URL of ) Is installed in advance (hereinafter referred to as “settlement support application software”). The user activates the payment support application software and reads the QR code displayed on the display 204 of the store terminal device 120. The settlement support application software transmits the transaction number included in the read QR code to the settlement mediation server 131. The address of the payment intermediary server 131 as a transmission destination may be installed in the user terminal device 110 in advance together with the payment support application software, or may be included as a URL in the QR code displayed on the display 204.

(Ii)
In the second pattern, QR code reading software is installed in the user terminal device 110 in advance. The user activates QR code reading software and reads the QR code displayed on the display 204 of the store terminal device 120. The read QR code includes the URL of the payment intermediary server 131. The QR code reading software extracts the URL included in the read QR code, starts the payment support application software (browser), and passes the extracted URL to the started payment support application software. The payment support application software accesses the URL passed from the QR code reading software, that is, the payment mediation server 131. Upon this access, the payment support application software transmits the user terminal device ID as header information of the HTTP request to the payment mediation server 131.

(Iii)
In the third pattern, QR code reading software is installed in the user terminal device 110 in advance. The user activates QR code reading software and reads the QR code displayed on the display 204 of the store terminal device 120. The read QR code includes the URL of the payment intermediary server 131. The QR code reading software extracts the URL included in the read QR code, starts the payment support application software (browser), and passes the extracted URL to the started payment support application software. The payment support application software accesses the URL passed from the QR code reading software, that is, the payment mediation server 131 and transmits the corresponding user terminal device ID to the payment mediation server 131.

  The transaction number receiving unit 805 receives from the user terminal device 110 the transaction number transmitted by the transaction number transmitting unit 804 and the user terminal device ID to which the transaction number is input. When the transaction number is received by the transaction number receiving unit 805, the extracting unit 806 refers to the transaction information table 500, and the payment amount and the store terminal device ID corresponding to the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805 Are extracted from the transaction information table 500.

  The transaction information transmission unit 807 transmits transaction information including the payment amount extracted by the extraction unit 806 and store information related to the store terminal device ID to the user terminal device 110. The store information can be a store name associated with the store terminal device ID, for example. The store information may include, for example, the location of the store associated with the store terminal device ID. The store information is associated with the store terminal device ID in advance in the HD 305 provided in the payment intermediary server 131, for example. It is remembered.

  Further, the transaction information transmitting unit 807 stores the transaction number included in the transaction information transmitted to the user terminal device 110 and the remittance source account number specified by the transaction number in the transaction information table 500. As shown, the information stored in the transaction information table 500 is updated.

  Further, for example, the transaction information transmission unit 807 refers to the status flag in the transaction information table 500, and the status flag associated with the transaction number and the user terminal device ID received by the transaction number receiving unit 805 is “completed”. When the authentication information related to the transaction information is received, it is determined as “erroneous operation at user terminal device 110”, “communication error”, etc., and the received transaction number and user terminal device ID are ignored (payment amount) And transaction information will not be sent).

  Further, the transaction information transmission unit 807 refers to the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, for example, the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805 and the date and time when the user terminal device ID is received are the transaction number. If the transaction information received by the receiving unit 805 and the transaction information registration date and time associated with the user terminal device ID are not less than a predetermined time, it is determined as “an erroneous operation in the user terminal device 110”, “a communication error”, or the like. The received transaction number and user terminal device ID are ignored (payment amount and transaction information are not transmitted).

  For example, when the transaction number is received by the transaction number receiving unit 805, the transaction information transmitting unit 807 transmits the transaction information to the user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805. Send. The user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the transaction number can be identified by the address that is transmitted together with the transaction number and is assigned to the user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the transaction number. The transaction information transmission unit 807 may transmit transaction information including a transaction number associated with the payment amount to be transmitted to the user terminal device 110.

  Upon receiving the transaction information, the user terminal device 110 (the payment support application software) executes the payment support application software, and based on the received transaction information, stores the store information such as the store name and the payment amount. And displayed on the display 204 included in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110. The user confirms the store name and the payment amount displayed on the display 204 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110, and inputs identity verification information when executing settlement.

  The identity verification information can be information that can identify the user of the payment system 100 in the payment intermediary server 131. For example, the user identification information is provided on the smartphone that realizes the user terminal device 110 according to the display screen (see FIG. 24) displayed on the display 204 provided on the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110. An input can be performed by performing a predetermined input operation on the keyboard 205. Specifically, the personal identification information can be a password registered in the account information table 400, for example.

  The identity verification information may be, for example, the name, password, and card number of the user registered in the account information table 400. The identity verification information may be, for example, an arbitrarily set membership number. The identity verification information may be one of the above password, user name, password, card number, or membership number, or information that combines two or more passwords, passwords, membership numbers, etc. There may be.

  Or identity verification information may be signature information, for example. In this case, the user inputs sign information using, for example, a touch panel (touch pad). The touch panel (touch pad) is not limited to the one provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110, but may be implemented by an external device connected to the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110. When the personal identification information is signature information, the account information table 400 stores the signature information in association with the member identification information of the user.

  When the user identification information is input, the user terminal device 110 (its payment support application software) transmits authentication information for the transaction information received by the user terminal device 110 to the payment mediation server 131. The authentication information is information indicating that the user has authenticated (approved) the settlement (transaction) indicated by the transaction information (payment amount, etc.) received at the user terminal device 110. Information indicating that confirmation information or identification information has been input can be used.

  The user terminal device 110 (settlement support application software) transmits the transaction number included in the transaction information received from the settlement mediation server 131 together. As a result, the payment intermediary server 131 can determine which payment (transaction) is the identity verification information based on the information transmitted from the user terminal device 110.

  Further, in the operation of the payment system 100, the user terminal device 110 (the payment support application software thereof) performs a predetermined input operation after the input of the personal identification information, so that the input of the personal verification information is performed. When the transmission instruction is accepted, the authentication information may be transmitted to the settlement intermediary server 131. Thereby, it can suppress that authentication information is transmitted to the payment mediation server 131 accidentally, and authentication information can be transmitted only when authenticated by the user.

  Alternatively, the user terminal device 110 (its payment support application software) transmits authentication information including either information indicating that the user himself / herself has been authenticated or information indicating that the user himself / herself has not been authenticated. It may be. As a result, it is possible to prevent erroneous authentication information from being transmitted to the payment intermediary server 131, and it is possible to transmit authentication information only when the user is surely authenticated.

  The authentication information receiving unit 808 receives authentication information for transaction information from the user terminal device 110. The authentication information receiving unit 808 receives authentication information for the transaction information transmitted by the transaction information transmitting unit 807 from the user terminal device 110. Based on the status flag in the transaction information table 500, whether or not the transaction information transmitted from the transaction information transmission unit 807 is the transaction information that has not received the corresponding authentication information is “processing”. Alternatively, the determination can be made based on whether or not “completion” is set. For example, when the authentication information regarding the transaction information whose status flag in the transaction information table 500 is “completed” is received, the authentication information receiving unit 808 determines that “an erroneous operation in the user terminal device 110”, “a communication error”, or the like. Then, the authentication information received repeatedly is ignored (not received).

  Further, when the authentication information is transmitted from the user terminal device 110, the authentication information receiving unit 808 refers to the transaction information table 500, and the current time is associated with the transaction information corresponding to the received authentication information. If it is within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time, the authentication information is received. Alternatively, when the authentication information is transmitted from the user terminal device 110, the authentication information receiving unit 808 refers to the transaction information table 500, and the current time is associated with the transaction information corresponding to the received authentication information. If a predetermined time or more has elapsed since the transaction information registration date and time, the authentication information is not received and the authentication information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 is ignored.

  The authentication processing unit 809 performs authentication processing based on the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808. The authentication processing unit 809 refers to the account information table 400 based on the identity confirmation information included in the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808 during the authentication process, and the user who is the transmission source of the authentication information (Users permitted (approved) to execute transactions) are identified, and the account balance of the identified users is extracted.

  In the authentication process, the authentication processing unit 809 specifies the transaction information authenticated by the specified user, and specifies the payment amount included in the specified transaction information. Then, with reference to the account information table 400, the specified account balance of the user is compared with the specified payment amount to determine whether the account balance is equal to or greater than the payment amount.

  The settlement execution unit 810 executes settlement when authentication processing is performed by the authentication processing unit 809. The settlement execution unit 810 transfers the payment amount from a user account provided in advance to a store account. Specifically, the settlement execution unit 810 refers to the transaction information table 500 when authentication is performed by the authentication processing unit 809, and stores information related to the transaction specified by the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808. Extract. Further, the settlement execution unit 810 refers to the account information table 400 and identifies the user and the store involved in the transaction specified by the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808. Then, the settlement execution unit 810 executes settlement by transferring the amount of funds corresponding to the amount of payment between the identified user account and the store account using the information relating to the extracted transaction. .

  The notification unit 811 notifies at least one of the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120 that the payment is executed by the payment execution unit 810. The notification unit 811 may notify both the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120 that the payment has been executed by the payment execution unit 810. The notification content notified by the notification unit 811 may be any information that guides the result of execution of the payment by the payment execution unit 810, and may be different between the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120.

  Specifically, for example, the notification unit 811 notifies the user terminal device 110 of the content “settlement has been completed. Thank you for your use.” You may be notified that the transaction number is 1122. In addition, the notification unit 811 notifies the user terminal device 110 of the name of the store where the payment has been made, such as “Thank you for using the payment. Also good. Moreover, the notification part 811 may notify the date and time when payment was made, for example.

  The settlement execution unit 810 described above is not limited to executing settlement by transferring funds between a user account and a store account. The settlement execution unit 810 may execute settlement in the settlement execution unit 810, for example, by mediating credit settlement with a credit card.

  When mediating credit settlement using a credit card, for example, processing can be performed using a card number and a password registered in advance in the account information table 400. When mediating credit settlement using a credit card, for example, processing may be performed using a personal identification number input to the user at the timing of inputting personal identification information.

  Specifically, when mediating credit settlement using a credit card, for example, the identity confirmation information is displayed on the display 204 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110 by the user terminal device 110 (its settlement support application software). In addition to, a screen prompting for the card number is displayed. When the authentication information receiving unit 808 receives the authentication information including the identification information and the card number input according to the screen displayed on the display 204, the payment execution unit 810 requests the external payment server 132 to make a card payment request. Send. This card settlement request includes the card number and payment amount of the user who requests credit settlement in the external settlement server 132.

  The external payment server 132 refers to the card information database based on the card payment request transmitted by the payment execution unit 810, and the user specified by the card number included in the card payment request It is determined whether or not the credit settlement included in the payment amount is possible. Specifically, for example, the external settlement server 132 specifies the expiration date of the corresponding card number based on the card number, and determines whether the card is within the expiration date. If credit settlement is possible, a predetermined credit settlement process is performed, and the result of the process is transmitted to the settlement mediation server 131 (settlement execution unit 810).

  When the credit settlement is impossible, the external settlement server 132 may transmit information indicating that the credit settlement is impossible to the settlement mediation server 131 (its settlement execution unit 810). The settlement execution unit 810 receives the result of the process transmitted from the external settlement server 132 to the settlement mediation server 131 as a result of transmitting the card settlement request.

  When the payment execution unit 810 transmits a card payment request to the external payment server 132, the notification unit 811 transmits the card payment request, and as a result of the process received from the external payment server 132 by the payment execution unit 810. Is notified to at least one of the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120.

(Processing procedure of payment system 100)
Next, a processing procedure of the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention will be described. 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 show the processing procedure of the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. It is explanatory drawing shown.

  9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 using the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. At that time, the store terminal device 120 requests the payment intermediary server 131 to generate a QR code for the product or service that the user (purchaser) intends to purchase (see the arrow 900 in FIGS. 9 and 19). ). The store terminal device 120 requests the payment intermediary server 131 to generate a QR code by transmitting the payment amount and the store terminal device ID. The shop terminal device 120 may request generation of a URL address instead of the QR code.

  In stores, the amount of goods and services may fluctuate from day to day, so QR codes or URL addresses are not generated in advance by batch processing, and every time payment using the payment system 100 is performed, The store terminal device 120 requests the payment intermediary server 131 to generate a QR code or a URL address.

  When the payment intermediary server 131 receives the payment amount from the store terminal device 120, it generates a transaction number. Then, the generated transaction number and the received payment amount are associated and stored in the transaction information table 500 (see arrow 1000 in FIG. 10). Further, the settlement intermediary server 131 identifies the store account number based on the store terminal device ID received together with the payment amount, and uses the identified account number as the remittance destination account number in association with the transaction number in the transaction information table 500. To remember. Then, the settlement intermediary server 131 transmits the generated transaction number to the store terminal device 120 that is the source of the payment amount (see arrow 1100 in FIGS. 11 and 19).

  Upon receiving the transaction number transmitted from the settlement intermediary server 131, the store terminal device 120 generates a QR code indicating the received transaction number and displays the generated QR code (see arrow 1200 in FIG. 12). . The user inputs the transaction number to the user terminal device 110 by reading the QR code 1210 displayed on the store terminal device 120 (see the arrow 1300 in FIGS. 13 and 19).

  The user terminal device 110 transmits the transaction number input by reading the QR code 1210 to the settlement mediation server 131 (see the arrow 1400 in FIGS. 14 and 19). The user terminal device 110 transmits the user terminal device ID of the user terminal device 110 to the payment mediation server 131 in addition to the transaction number.

  When receiving the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110, the payment intermediary server 131 extracts the payment amount and the store terminal device ID corresponding to the received transaction number from the transaction information table 500 (arrow in FIG. 15). 1510). Then, the settlement intermediary server 131 transmits transaction information including the extracted payment amount and store information relating to the store terminal device ID to the user terminal device 110 (see an arrow 1520 in FIGS. 15 and 19).

  Whether the payment intermediary server 131 receives the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110, extracts the payment amount and the store terminal device ID based on the transaction information registration date / time and the status flag in the transaction information table 500 The payment amount corresponding to the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device ID are extracted according to the determination result.

  The settlement intermediary server 131, for example, if the date and time when the transaction number is received is within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding transaction number, and the payment amount and store terminal device corresponding to the received transaction number The ID is extracted from the transaction information table 500. Alternatively, the payment intermediary server 131 may, for example, set the payment amount and store terminal corresponding to the received transaction number when the status flag associated with the received transaction number indicates “processing”. The device ID is extracted from the transaction information table 500.

  Further, for example, when the date and time when the transaction number is received is the date and time when a predetermined time or more has passed since the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the transaction number, the settlement intermediary server 131 extracts the payment amount and the store terminal device ID. Don't do it. Further, for example, when the status flag associated with the received transaction number indicates “completed”, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not extract the payment amount and the store terminal device ID.

  In addition, when the transaction intermediary server 131 receives the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110, the transaction intermediary server 131 stores the transaction information in a state where the received transaction number is associated with the remittance source account number specified by the transaction number. The information stored in the transaction information table 500 is updated so as to be stored in the table 500.

  Upon receiving the transaction information, the user terminal device 110 displays store information such as the store name and the payment amount based on the received transaction information (see FIG. 24). The user confirms the store name and the payment amount, and inputs the person confirmation information when executing settlement. When the user identification information is input, the user terminal device 110 transmits authentication information for the transaction information received by the user terminal device 110 to the payment intermediary server 131 (see the arrow 1600 in FIGS. 16 and 19). ).

  When receiving the authentication information, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information, and executes a settlement based on the result of the authentication process. When executing the settlement, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs the settlement by transferring funds between the accounts based on the information stored in the account information table 400 (see an arrow 1710 in FIG. 17). Further, when executing the payment, a part of the payment in the payment system 100 may be executed in the external payment server 132 by appropriately communicating with the external payment server 132 (arrows in FIGS. 17 and 19). 1720).

  When receiving the authentication information, the settlement intermediary server 131 determines whether or not to perform authentication processing based on the transaction information registration date and status flag in the transaction information table 500 and the status flag, and performs authentication processing based on the determination result. For example, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information when the date and time when the authentication information is received is within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding authentication information. Alternatively, for example, when the status flag associated with the received authentication information indicates “processing”, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information.

  For example, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not perform the authentication process when the date and time when the authentication information is received is the date and time when a predetermined time or more has elapsed from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding authentication information. Further, for example, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not perform the authentication process when the status flag associated with the received authentication information indicates “complete”.

  Thereafter, the settlement intermediary server 131 transmits a settlement result notification indicating the result of the settlement to at least one of the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120 (see arrows 1810 and 1820 in FIGS. 18 and 19). ). Thereby, it is possible to inform the user or the store that the settlement has been completed.

  When the settlement result notification is transmitted only to the user terminal device 110 or only to the store terminal device 120, the received one (for example, the user) shows the received settlement result notification to the other (for example, the store clerk). The payment system 100 may be operated. The payment intermediary server 131 may transmit a payment result notification to both the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120.

May be.

(Processing procedure of settlement mediation server 131)
Next, a processing procedure of the payment mediation server 131 in the payment system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention will be described. FIG. 27 is a flowchart showing a processing procedure of the payment intermediary server 131 in the payment system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention.

  In the flowchart of FIG. 27, first, the payment intermediary server 131 in the payment system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention determines whether or not the payment amount transmitted from the store terminal device 120 has been received (step S2701). . If the payment amount transmitted from the store terminal device 120 has not been received (step S2701: No), the process waits until it is received.

  In step S2701, when the payment amount transmitted from the shop terminal device 120 is received (step S2701: Yes), a transaction number is generated (step S2702), and the generated transaction number is stored (step S2703). In step S2703, the transaction number generated in step S2702 is associated with the payment amount and the store terminal device ID, and stored in transaction information table 500. And the transaction number produced | generated in step S2702 is transmitted with respect to the shop terminal device 120 used as the transmission origin of the payment amount received in step S2701: Yes (step S2704).

  Next, it is determined whether the transaction number and the user terminal device ID are received from the user terminal device 110 (step S2705). When the transaction number and the user terminal device ID are received (step S2705: Yes), the transaction information table 500 is referred to based on the received transaction number and the user terminal device ID, and the payment amount and the store terminal device ID. Is extracted (step S2706).

  Then, the transaction information table 500 is updated based on the payment amount extracted in step S2706 and the store terminal device ID (step S2707). In step S2707, transaction information is generated based on the payment amount and the store terminal device ID extracted in step S2706, and the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110 and the remittance specified by the transaction number are included. The information stored in the transaction information table 500 is updated so as to be stored in the transaction information table 500 in a state in which the original account number is associated.

  Further, in step S2707, based on the received transaction number and user terminal device ID, it is determined whether or not to update the transaction information table 500 by referring to the transaction information registration date and time and the status flag in the transaction information table 500. To do. Specifically, in step S2707, for example, referring to the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, when the current date and time is a date and time included within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, The transaction information table 500 is updated. Alternatively, specifically, in step S2707, for example, the status flag in the transaction information table 500 is referred to, and the transaction information table 500 is updated when the status flag in the transaction information table 500 indicates “processing”.

  Specifically, in step S2707, for example, when the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500 is referred to and the current date and time is a date and time that has passed a predetermined time or more from the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, A series of processes may be terminated without updating the transaction information table 500. Alternatively, specifically, in step S2707, for example, the status flag in the transaction information table 500 is referred to. If the status flag in the transaction information table 500 indicates “complete”, the transaction information table 500 is not updated, Processing may be terminated.

  Next, in step S2705: Yes, the generated transaction information is transmitted to the user terminal device 110, which is the transmission source of the transaction number and user terminal device ID received (step S2708). And it is judged whether the authentication information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 was received as a result of transmitting transaction information in step S2708 (step S2709). When the authentication information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 is received (step S2709: YES), the authentication process is executed based on the received authentication information (step S2710).

  Next, it is determined whether or not the authentication performed in step S2710 is OK, that is, whether or not the result of the authentication process executed based on the authentication information received in step S2709: Yes is permitted. (Step S2711). If the authentication is not OK (step S2711: NO), the process proceeds to step S2719.

  If the authentication is OK in step S2711 (step S2711: YES), it is determined whether or not the card number is included in the authentication information received in step S2709: YES (step S2712). If the card number is not included in the authentication information received in step S2709: Yes (step S2712: No), it is associated with the corresponding account number based on the authentication information received in step S2709: Yes. It is determined whether the account balance is equal to or greater than the payment amount (step S2713).

  In step S2713, when the account balance associated with the corresponding account number is equal to or greater than the payment amount (step S2713: Yes), the process proceeds to step S2716. On the other hand, in step S2713, when the account balance associated with the corresponding account number is not equal to or more than the payment amount (step S2713: No), the process proceeds to step S2719.

  In step S2712, if the authentication information received in step S2709: Yes contains a card number (step S2712: YES), a card payment request is transmitted to the external payment server 132 (step S2714). In response to the card payment request transmitted to the external payment server 132, whether or not there is a response indicating that the card payment in the external payment server 132 is OK (the external payment server 132 uses the card payment in the external payment server 132). It is determined whether or not a response indicating OK is returned (step S2715).

  If the external payment server 132 returns OK in response to the card payment request transmitted to the external payment server 132 in step S2715 (step S2715: Yes), the process proceeds to step S2716. On the other hand, in response to the card payment request transmitted to the external payment server 132, the external payment server 132 does not return OK (a response indicating that the external payment server 132 cannot perform card payment in the external payment server 132). (Step S2715: No), the process proceeds to step S2719.

  In step S2716, settlement is executed based on the result of the authentication process (step S2716). In step S2716, for example, in the case of passing through step S2713: Yes, settlement is executed by transferring funds between the user's account and the store's account. Further, in step S2716, for example, in the case of passing through step S2715: Yes, communication is performed with the external payment server 132, and the payment is executed by acquiring the result of the payment processing in the external payment server 132.

  Thereafter, a payment result notification indicating the result of the payment executed in step S2716 is transmitted to the user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the authentication information received in step S2709: Yes (step S2717). Terminate the process.

  In step S2717, the status flag of the corresponding transaction information in the transaction information table 500 is updated to “completed”. The status flag updated in step S2717 does not indicate only “processing” and “completed”. For example, when a series of processing ends with an error as in step S2719 described later, “error” is set. It may be shown.

  On the other hand, when the authentication information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 is not received as a result of transmitting the transaction information in step S2708 in step S2709 (step S2709: No), the transaction information is transmitted in step S2708. It is determined whether or not a predetermined time has elapsed (step S2718). If the predetermined time has not elapsed (step S2718: NO), the process returns to step S2709.

  In step S2718, if a predetermined time has elapsed since the transaction information was transmitted in step S2708 (step S2718: YES), it is determined that the user has not been authenticated or a communication error has occurred, and the process Predetermined error processing such as notification of completion or error notification is performed (step S2719), and the series of processing ends.

  In step S2719, for example, if step S2713: No is passed, an error message indicating that settlement cannot be performed because the account balance associated with the corresponding account number is not equal to or greater than the payment amount is displayed in step S2709: Yes. Error processing such as transmission to the user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the authentication information received in step S1 is performed.

  In step S2719, for example, if step S2715: No is passed, the external payment server 132 receives an error message indicating that card payment in the external payment server 132 is impossible in step S2709: Yes. Error processing such as transmission to the user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the authentication information is performed.

  If the transaction number and the user terminal device ID are not received from the user terminal device 110 in step S2705 (step S2705: No), whether or not a predetermined time has elapsed since the transaction number was transmitted in step S2704. Is determined (step S2720). If the predetermined time has not elapsed since the transaction number was transmitted in step S2704 (step S2720: No), the process returns to step S2705. When a predetermined time has elapsed since the transaction number was transmitted in step S2704 (step S2720: Yes), the process proceeds to step S2719.

(Processing procedure of user terminal device 110)
Next, a processing procedure of the user terminal device 110 in the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention will be described. FIG. 28 is a flowchart showing a processing procedure of the user terminal device 110 in the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention.

  In the flowchart of FIG. 28, first, the user terminal device 110 in the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention determines whether or not a transaction number has been input (step S2801). The transaction number can be input, for example, by reading the QR code 1210 displayed by the store terminal device 120 using the camera 208 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110. As the transaction number, a numerical value indicating the transaction number may be directly input by operating the keyboard 205 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110.

  In step S2801, when the transaction number is not input (step S2801: No), it waits until it is input. When the transaction number is input (step S2801: Yes), the input transaction number and the user terminal device ID into which the transaction number is input are transmitted to the settlement intermediary server 131 (step S2802).

  Next, as a result of transmitting the transaction number in step S2802, it is determined whether or not the transaction information transmitted from the settlement mediation server 131 has been received (step S2803). If the transaction information transmitted from the payment intermediary server 131 has not been received (step S2803: No), it waits until it is received.

  In step S2803, it is determined whether or not a predetermined time has elapsed since the transaction number was transmitted in step S2802, and transmitted from the settlement intermediary server 131 even if the predetermined time has elapsed since the transaction number was transmitted in step S2802. If the received transaction information is not received, it may be determined that an error has occurred, and a predetermined error process may be performed. In this case, for example, a message such as “Please read the QR code 1210 again” is displayed on the display 204 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110.

  In step S2803, when the transaction information transmitted from the settlement mediation server 131 is received as a result of transmitting the transaction number in step S2802 (step S2803: Yes), the display 204 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110 is displayed. Step S2803: The transaction information received in Yes is displayed (Step S2804).

  Next, it waits until the input of identity verification information is accepted (step S2805: No), and when the identity verification information is input (step S2805: Yes), it is determined whether or not there is an instruction to send the transaction number and the identity verification information. Determination is made (step S2806). If there is no transmission instruction for the transaction number and the identity verification information (step S2806: No), the process waits until the transmission instruction is received. If there is an instruction to send the transaction number and the identity verification information (step S2806: Yes), the authentication information is generated (step S2807), and the generated authentication information is transmitted to the payment intermediary server 131 (step S2808). ).

  Then, it is determined whether or not the settlement result notification transmitted from the settlement mediation server 131 has been received (step S2809). When the settlement result notification transmitted from the settlement intermediary server 131 is received (step S2809: Yes), the settlement result is notified based on the received settlement result notification (step S2810), and the series of processes is terminated.

  In step S2809, when the payment result notification transmitted from the payment intermediary server 131 is not received (step S2809: No), it is determined whether or not a predetermined time has elapsed since the authentication information was transmitted in step S2808. (Step S2811). If the predetermined time has not elapsed since the authentication information was transmitted in step S2808 (step S2811: No), the process returns to step S2809.

  In step S2811, when a predetermined time has elapsed since the authentication information was transmitted in step S2808 (step S2811: YES), a message prompting confirmation that payment has been completed is notified (step S2812), Terminate the process. In step S2812, for example, a message such as “Please confirm that payment has been completed correctly” or “Please check the payment result screen displayed on the store terminal device 120” is displayed on the user terminal device. 110 is displayed on the display 204 included in the smartphone that implements the network 110.

  As described above, in the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention, the problems caused by the conventional settlement method can be solved by the following functions. That is, at the time of settlement by the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention, a credit card or the credit card is obtained by performing settlement by reading the QR code 1210 displayed by the store using the user terminal device 110. This makes it possible to make online payment at a store without using a dedicated terminal for reading the information.

  In a store, it is assumed that the amount of goods and services varies from day to day, so it is not possible to generate a URL address or QR code 1210 in advance by batch processing. For this reason, in the conventional settlement method, it is difficult to simplify the settlement by applying a settlement method using the QR code 1210 for goods and services that fluctuate daily. In contrast, in the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention, the store or the store stores the URL address or the address of the product or service to be purchased by the user on the spot (in real time). The generation of the QR code 1210 can be requested.

  Further, there is a demand for a store that provides a product or service to hand over the product after confirming the payment status on the spot where the product or service is provided (settlement is performed). In recent years, since unauthorized use of personal information has prevailed, users have a desire not to inform stores of their personal information. And in the settlement at the storefront, it is enough for the store to confirm the payment on the spot providing the product or service (performing settlement), and it is necessary to know who the user (the purchaser) is. There was no current situation.

  In the payment system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention, the payment intermediary server 131 notifies the store of the payment status in real time (immediately), and the store side uses the information notified from the payment intermediation server 131 to identify the user's personal information You can check the payment status and product information without confirming your payment. Thereby, the payment status can be confirmed with respect to the store on the spot where the product or service is provided (settlement is performed) without notifying the store of the user's personal information.

  When the payment system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention is actually operated, a plurality of payment result notifications (payment confirmation e-mails, etc.) are transmitted from the payment intermediary server 131, and the order of the procedures and the payment confirmation e-mail are stored in the store. It is assumed that the order received by the terminal device 120 is different (congestion / arrives before and after). In the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention, the store side can easily match the actual product with the payment confirmation mail based on the information notified from the settlement mediation server 131. Can be prevented.

  When using the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment of the present invention to make a settlement by a method in which a user sends money to a store for merchandise sales, the following (1-1) to (1-13) Settlement is performed according to the procedure.

(1-6) The user inputs a transaction number using the user terminal device 110. Specifically, for example, the transaction number is input by reading the QR code 1210 displayed by the store terminal device 120 using the user terminal device 110. Alternatively, specifically, for example, the transaction number displayed by the shop terminal device 120 is directly input to the user terminal device 110 directly, thereby inputting the transaction number.
(1-7) The user terminal device 110 accesses the payment mediation server 131 and notifies the transaction number.
(1-8) The settlement intermediary server 131 notifies the user terminal device 110 of information related to the remittance destination store and the payment amount (remittance amount).
(1-9) The user terminal device 110 displays information (store name or the like) regarding the remittance destination store and a payment amount (remittance amount).
(1-10) The user confirms that there is no problem in the information notified via the user terminal device 110, and inputs identification information such as a password and a signature.
(1-11) The user terminal device 110 notifies the payment intermediary server 131 of the personal identification information, and the payment intermediary server 131 confirms that there is no problem with the notified personal identification information.
(1-12) The settlement intermediary server 131 transfers funds (transfers money) between account information (or requests settlement to the external settlement server 132 using information such as a card member number).
(1-13) The settlement intermediary server 131 notifies at least one of the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120 that the transaction has been completed.

  As described above, in the settlement in the settlement system 100 according to the first embodiment, the process of inputting the personal identification information is provided, but the process of inputting the personal identification information is not necessarily performed. For example, in the case where “the store can be trusted in advance” and “the settlement is a small amount (less than a predetermined amount)”, the input of the identification information is omitted, and after confirming the store name and the amount, the “OK” key is pressed. It is good also as a procedure only to operate. Further, in addition to the input of the personal identification information, a procedure for receiving authentication information from the user terminal device 110, an authentication process based on the received authentication information, and the like may be omitted.

  In the second embodiment, the store terminal device 120 receives the input of the transaction number visualized by the user terminal device 110, and the store terminal of the store terminal device 120 that has received the input of the transaction number and the input of the transaction number. The device ID is transmitted to the payment intermediary server 131. Regarding the method of receiving the transaction number visualized by the user terminal device 110 in the store terminal device 120 and transmitting the store terminal device ID, for example, the following three patterns (iv), (v) or (vi) Is assumed.

(Iv)
The first pattern is that when the store terminal device 120 receives an input of a transaction number at the store terminal device 120, the transaction number and the store terminal device ID received are input to the payment intermediary server 131 (URL). Installed application software (hereinafter referred to as “settlement support application software”). The store (the store clerk) activates the payment support application software and reads the QR code displayed on the display 204 of the user terminal device 110. Further, the payment support application software displays a display screen for inputting the payment amount (sales amount), and accepts the input of the payment amount according to the display screen. Then, the payment support application software transmits the transaction number and the payment amount included in the read QR code to the payment mediation server 131. The address of the payment intermediary server 131 as a transmission destination may be installed in the store terminal device 120 in advance together with the payment support application software, or may be included as a URL in the QR code displayed on the display 204.

(V)
In the second pattern, QR code reading software is installed in the store terminal device 120 in advance. The user activates QR code reading software and reads the QR code displayed on the display 204 of the user terminal device 110. The read QR code includes the URL of the payment intermediary server 131. The QR code reading software extracts the URL included in the read QR code, starts the payment support application software (browser), and passes the extracted URL to the started payment support application software. Further, the payment support application software displays a display screen for inputting the payment amount (sales amount), and accepts the input of the payment amount according to the display screen. Then, the payment support application software accesses the URL passed from the QR code reading software, that is, the payment mediation server 131, and transmits the transaction number and the payment amount. Upon this access, the payment support application software transmits the store terminal device ID as header information of the HTTP request to the payment mediation server 131.

(Vi)
In the third pattern, QR code reading software is installed in the store terminal device 120 in advance. The user activates QR code reading software and reads the QR code displayed on the display 204 of the user terminal device 110. The read QR code includes the URL of the payment intermediary server 131. The QR code reading software extracts the URL included in the read QR code, starts the payment support application software (browser), and passes the extracted URL to the started payment support application software. Further, the payment support application software displays a display screen for inputting the payment amount (sales amount), and accepts the input of the payment amount according to the display screen. The payment support application software accesses the URL passed from the QR code reading software, that is, the payment mediation server 131, and transmits the transaction number, the payment amount, and the corresponding store terminal device ID to the payment mediation server 131.

  In addition, the store terminal device 120 accepts an input of a transaction number and accepts an input of a payment amount. The payment amount can be input by the store (the store clerk) performing an input operation on the store terminal device 120 that has received the input of the transaction number (see, for example, FIG. 40-5).

  The transaction number receiving unit 805 receives the transaction number transmitted by the transaction number transmitting unit 804, the payment amount paid by the user to the store, and the store terminal device ID in which the transaction number is input. The extraction unit 806 extracts the user terminal device ID corresponding to the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805 from the storage unit 803. When the transaction number is received by the transaction number receiving unit 805, the extracting unit 806 refers to the transaction information table 500, and obtains the user terminal device ID corresponding to the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805. Extracted from the transaction information table 500.

  When the transaction number receiving unit 805 receives the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID, the extraction unit 806 extracts the user terminal device ID based on the transaction information registration date / time and the status flag in the transaction information table 500. The transaction number receiving unit 805 transmitted from the user terminal device 110 extracts the user terminal device ID corresponding to the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID according to the determination result.

  For example, the extraction unit 806 is applicable when the transaction number receiving unit 805 receives the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date corresponding to the corresponding transaction number. The user terminal device ID to be extracted is extracted from the transaction information table 500. Alternatively, for example, the extraction unit 806 uses the corresponding usage when the payment amount corresponding to the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805 and the status flag associated with the store terminal device ID indicate “processing”. The person terminal device ID is extracted from the transaction information table 500.

  Further, for example, the extraction unit 806 is the date and time when the transaction number receiving unit 805 receives the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID when a predetermined time or more has elapsed from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding transaction number. In some cases, the user terminal device ID is not extracted. Alternatively, the extraction unit 806, for example, when the payment amount corresponding to the transaction number received by the transaction number receiving unit 805 and the status flag associated with the store terminal device ID indicate “completed”, the user terminal device ID Do not perform extraction.

  The transaction information transmitting unit 807 transmits to the user terminal device 110 transaction information including the user information related to the user terminal device ID extracted by the extracting unit 806 and the payment amount received by the transaction number receiving unit 805. . Further, the transaction information transmission unit 807 stores the transaction number included in the transaction information transmitted to the user terminal device 110 and the remittance account number specified by the transaction number in the transaction information table 500. As shown, the information stored in the transaction information table 500 is updated.

  Upon receiving the transaction information, the user terminal device 110 (the payment support application software) executes the payment support application software, and based on the received transaction information, stores the store information such as the store name and the payment amount. And displayed on the display 204 included in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110.

  The user confirms the store name and the payment amount displayed on the display 204 provided in the smartphone that implements the user terminal device 110, and inputs identity verification information when executing settlement. Specifically, the personal identification information can be a password registered in the account information table 400, for example. Specifically, the identity verification information may be, for example, the name, password, and card number of the user registered in the account information table 400. Specifically, the identity verification information may be, for example, an arbitrarily set membership number. Further, the identity verification information may be any of the above password, user name, password, card number, or membership number, or a combination of two or more passwords, passwords, membership numbers, etc. It may be information.

  When the user identification information is input, the user terminal device 110 (its payment support application software) transmits authentication information for the transaction information received by the user terminal device 110 to the payment mediation server 131. Moreover, the user terminal device 110 transmits a transaction number in addition to the authentication information.

  The authentication information receiving unit 808 receives authentication information for transaction information from the user terminal device 110. The extraction unit 806 extracts transaction information based on the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110 together with the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808. The authentication processing unit 809 performs authentication processing for the user based on the payment amount extracted by the extraction unit 806 and the user information regarding the user terminal device ID. Also, the authentication processing unit 809 performs authentication processing based on the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808.

  When the authentication processing unit 809 receives the authentication information received by the authentication information receiving unit 808, the authentication processing unit 809 determines whether or not to perform the authentication process based on the transaction information registration date and time and the status flag in the transaction information table 500. Authentication processing is performed based on the result. For example, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information when the date and time when the authentication information is received is within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding authentication information. Alternatively, for example, when the status flag associated with the received authentication information indicates “processing”, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information.

  For example, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not perform the authentication process when the date and time when the authentication information is received is the date and time when a predetermined time or more has elapsed from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding authentication information. Further, for example, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not perform the authentication process when the status flag associated with the received authentication information indicates “complete”.

(Processing procedure of payment system 100)
Next, a processing procedure of the settlement system 100 according to the second embodiment of the present invention will be described. 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38 and 39 are explanatory diagrams showing the processing procedure of the settlement system 100 according to the second embodiment of the present invention. It is.

  30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, and 39, in the settlement using the settlement system 100 according to the second embodiment of the present invention, Payment intention information is transmitted from the user terminal device 110 to the settlement intermediary server 131 (see the arrow 3000 in FIGS. 30 and 39).

  When the payment intermediary server 131 receives payment intention information from the user terminal device 110, it generates a transaction number. Then, the generated transaction number and the received user terminal device ID are associated with each other and stored in the transaction information table 500 (see arrow 3100 in FIG. 31). Then, the settlement intermediary server 131 transmits the generated transaction number to the user terminal device 110 that is the transmission source of the payment intention information (see the arrow 3200 in FIGS. 32 and 39).

  Upon receiving the transaction number transmitted from the settlement intermediary server 131, the user terminal device 110 generates a QR code 1210 indicating the received transaction number and displays the generated QR code 1210 (arrow 3300 in FIG. 33). See). The store (the store clerk) inputs the transaction number to the store terminal device 120 by reading the QR code 1210 displayed on the user terminal device 110 (see the arrow 3400 in FIG. 34).

  The shop terminal device 120 transmits the transaction number input by reading the QR code 1210 to the settlement mediation server 131 (see the arrow 3500 in FIGS. 35 and 39). The store terminal device 120 transmits the payment amount and the store terminal device ID of the store terminal device 120 to the settlement intermediary server 131 in addition to the transaction number. The payment amount is input by, for example, the store (the clerk) prior to transmission of the transaction number, payment amount, and store terminal device ID by the store terminal device 120. Either the transaction number or the payment amount may be input first.

  When receiving the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID transmitted from the store terminal device 120, the settlement intermediary server 131 extracts the user terminal device ID corresponding to the received transaction number from the transaction information table 500. (See arrow 3610 in FIG. 36). Then, the settlement intermediary server 131 transmits transaction information including the received payment amount and store information relating to the store terminal device ID to the user terminal device 110 (see an arrow 3620 in FIGS. 36 and 39).

  In addition, when the settlement intermediary server 131 receives the transaction number, payment amount, and store terminal device ID transmitted from the store terminal device 120, the received transaction number is associated with the remittance destination account number specified by the transaction number. In this state, the information stored in the transaction information table 500 is updated so as to be stored in the transaction information table 500.

  When the transaction intermediary server 131 receives the transaction number, the payment amount, and the store terminal device ID transmitted from the store terminal device 120, the settlement intermediary server 131, based on the transaction information registration date / time and status flag in the transaction information table 500, It is determined whether or not the device ID is extracted, and the user terminal device ID corresponding to the transaction number transmitted from the store terminal device 120 is extracted according to the determination result.

  The settlement intermediary server 131, for example, when the transaction number, payment amount, and store terminal device ID transmitted from the store terminal device 120 are received within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding transaction number. The corresponding user terminal device ID is extracted from the transaction information table 500. Alternatively, the settlement intermediary server 131 is, for example, the settlement intermediary server 131 when the status flag associated with the received transaction number, payment amount, and store terminal device ID indicates “processing”. The device ID is extracted from the transaction information table 500.

  Further, for example, the settlement intermediary server 131 has received a transaction number, payment amount, and store terminal device ID transmitted from the store terminal device 120 for a predetermined time or more from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding transaction number. If the date / time has been set, the user terminal device ID is not extracted. Further, for example, when the status flag associated with the received transaction number indicates “completed”, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not extract the user terminal device ID.

  Upon receiving the transaction information, the user terminal device 110 displays store information such as the store name and the payment amount based on the received transaction information. The user confirms the store name and the payment amount, and inputs the person confirmation information when executing settlement. When the user identification information is input, the user terminal device 110 transmits authentication information for the transaction information received by the user terminal device 110 to the payment intermediary server 131 (see the arrow 3700 in FIGS. 37 and 39). ).

  When receiving the authentication information, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information, and executes a settlement based on the result of the authentication process. When executing the settlement, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs the settlement by transferring funds between the accounts based on the information stored in the account information table 400. Further, when executing the payment, a part of the payment in the payment system 100 may be executed in the external payment server 132 by appropriately communicating with the external payment server 132.

  When mediating credit settlement using a credit card, for example, processing can be performed using a card number and a password registered in advance in the account information table 400. When mediating credit settlement using a credit card, for example, processing may be performed using a personal identification number input to the user at the timing of inputting personal identification information.

  Specifically, for example, the user terminal device 110 (its payment support application software) displays a screen for requesting input of a card number in addition to the identification information on the display 204 provided in the smartphone that realizes the user terminal device 110. indicate. When the authentication information receiving unit 808 receives the authentication information including the identification information and the card number input according to the screen displayed on the display 204, the payment execution unit 810 requests the external payment server 132 to make a card payment request. Send. This card settlement request includes the card number and payment amount of the user who requests credit settlement in the external settlement server 132.

  Further, when receiving the authentication information, the settlement intermediary server 131 determines whether or not to perform the authentication process based on the transaction information registration date and status flag in the transaction information table 500 and the status flag, and performs the authentication process based on the determination result. Do it. For example, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information when the date and time when the authentication information is received is within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding authentication information. Alternatively, for example, when the status flag associated with the received authentication information indicates “processing”, the settlement intermediary server 131 performs an authentication process based on the received authentication information.

  For example, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not perform the authentication process when the date and time when the authentication information is received is the date and time when a predetermined time or more has elapsed from the transaction information registration date and time corresponding to the corresponding authentication information. Further, for example, the settlement intermediary server 131 does not perform the authentication process when the status flag associated with the received authentication information indicates “complete”.

  Thereafter, the settlement intermediary server 131 transmits a settlement result notification indicating the result of the settlement to at least one of the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120 (see arrows 3810 and 3820 in FIGS. 38 and 39). ). Thereby, it is possible to inform the user or the store that the settlement has been completed. When the settlement result notification is transmitted only to the user terminal device 110 or only to the store terminal device 120, the received one (for example, the user) shows the received settlement result notification to the other (for example, the store clerk). The payment system 100 may be operated. The payment intermediary server 131 may transmit a payment result notification to both the user terminal device 110 and the store terminal device 120.

S4201). If the payment intention information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 has not been received (step S4201: No), the process waits until it is received.

  In step S4201, if the payment intention information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 is received (step S4201: Yes), a transaction number is generated (step S4202), and the generated transaction number is stored (step S4203). . In step S4203, the transaction number generated in step S4202 is associated with the user terminal device ID that is the transmission source of payment intention information, and stored in transaction information table 500. And the transaction number produced | generated in step S4202 is transmitted with respect to the user terminal device 110 used as the transmission origin of the payment intention information received in step S4201: Yes (step S4204).

  Next, it is determined whether the transaction number and the store terminal device ID are received from the store terminal device 120 (step S4205). When the transaction number and the store terminal device ID are received (step S4205: Yes), the transaction information table 500 is referred to based on the received transaction number and the store terminal device ID, and the corresponding user terminal device ID is extracted. (Step S4206).

  Then, the transaction information table 500 is updated based on the user terminal device ID extracted in step S4206 (step S4207). In step S4207, transaction information is generated based on the payment amount and store terminal device ID extracted in step S4206, and the transaction number transmitted from the user terminal device 110 and the remittance specified by the transaction number are generated. The information stored in the transaction information table 500 is updated so as to be stored in the transaction information table 500 in a state in which the account number is associated.

  Further, in step S4207, based on the received transaction number and user terminal device ID, it is determined whether or not to update transaction information table 500 by referring to the transaction information registration date / time and status flag in transaction information table 500. To do. Specifically, in step S4207, for example, referring to the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, when the current date and time is a date and time included within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, The transaction information table 500 is updated. Or, specifically, in step S4207, for example, the status flag in the transaction information table 500 is referred to, and when the status flag in the transaction information table 500 indicates “processing”, the transaction information table 500 is updated.

  Specifically, in step S4207, for example, referring to the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, and the current date and time is a date and time when a predetermined time or more has elapsed from the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, A series of processes may be terminated without updating the transaction information table 500. Or, specifically, in step S4207, for example, the status flag in the transaction information table 500 is referred to. If the status flag in the transaction information table 500 indicates “complete”, the transaction information table 500 is not updated, Processing may be terminated.

  Next, the generated transaction information is transmitted to the user terminal device 110 corresponding to the user terminal device ID extracted in step S4206 (step S4208). Then, as a result of transmitting the transaction information in step S4208, it is determined whether or not the authentication information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 has been received (step S4209). When the authentication information transmitted from the user terminal device 110 is received (step S4209: Yes), the authentication process is executed based on the received authentication information (step S4210).

  In step S4210, based on the authentication information received in step S4209: Yes, the corresponding transaction information is extracted from the transaction information table 500, and the authentication process regarding the extracted transaction information is executed. In step S4210, based on the authentication information received in step S4209: Yes, the transaction information registration date / time and the status flag in transaction information table 500 are referred to and it is determined whether or not to execute the authentication process.

  Specifically, in step S4210, for example, referring to the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, when the current date and time is a date and time included within a predetermined time from the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, Execute authentication process. Alternatively, specifically, in step S4210, for example, a status flag in transaction information table 500 is referred to, and if the status flag in transaction information table 500 indicates “processing”, authentication processing is executed.

  Specifically, in step S4210, for example, when the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500 is referred to and the current date and time is a date and time when a predetermined time or more has elapsed from the transaction information registration date and time in the transaction information table 500, A series of processes may be terminated without executing the authentication process. Alternatively, specifically, in step S4210, for example, the status flag in transaction information table 500 is referred to. You may end.

  Next, it is determined whether or not the authentication performed in step S4210 is OK, that is, whether or not the result of the authentication process executed based on the authentication information received in step S4209: Yes is permitted. (Step S4211). When authentication is not OK (step S4211: No), it transfers to step S4219.

  If the authentication is OK in step S4211 (step S4211: YES), it is determined whether or not the card number is included in the authentication information received in step S4209: YES (step S4212). If the card number is not included in the authentication information received in step S4209: Yes (step S4212: No), it is associated with the corresponding account number based on the authentication information received in step S4209: Yes. It is determined whether the account balance is equal to or greater than the payment amount (step S4213).

  In step S4213, if the account balance associated with the corresponding account number is greater than or equal to the payment amount (step S4213: Yes), the process proceeds to step S4216. On the other hand, if the account balance associated with the corresponding account number is not equal to or greater than the payment amount in step S4213 (step S4213: No), the process proceeds to step S4219.

  In step S4212, if the card number is included in the authentication information received in step S4209: Yes (step S4212: Yes), a card payment request is transmitted to the external payment server 132 (step S4214). In response to the card payment request transmitted to the external payment server 132, whether or not there is a response indicating that the card payment in the external payment server 132 is OK (the external payment server 132 uses the card payment in the external payment server 132). It is determined whether or not a response indicating OK is returned (step S4215).

  If the external payment server 132 returns OK in response to the card payment request transmitted to the external payment server 132 in step S4215 (step S4215: Yes), the process proceeds to step S4216. On the other hand, in response to the card payment request transmitted to the external payment server 132, the external payment server 132 does not return OK (a response indicating that the external payment server 132 cannot perform card payment in the external payment server 132). (Step S4215: No), the process proceeds to Step S4219.

  In step S4216, settlement is executed based on the result of the authentication process (step S4216). In step S4216, for example, in the case of going through step S4213: Yes, settlement is executed by transferring funds between the user's account and the store's account. In step S4216, for example, in the case of passing through step S4215: Yes, communication is performed with the external payment server 132, and the payment is executed by acquiring the result of the payment processing in the external payment server 132.
