Thus, devices capable of operating as a server may include, as examples, dedicated rack-mounted servers, desktop computers, laptop computers, set top boxes, integrated devices combining various features, such as two or more features of the foregoing devices, or the like. Servers may vary widely in configuration or capabilities, but generally a server may include one or more central processing units and memory. A server may also include one or more mass storage devices, one or more power supplies, one or more wired or wireless network interfaces, one or more input/output interfaces, or one or more operating systems.

[00041] A client device may vary in terms of capabilities or features. Disclosed subject matter is intended to cover a wide range of potential variations. For example, a simple smart phone, phablet or tablet may include a numeric keypad or a display. In contrast, however, as another example, a web-enabled client device may include a high resolution screen, one or more physical or virtual keyboards, mass storage, one or more accelerometers, one or more gyroscopes, global positioning system (GPS) or other location-identifying type capability, or a display with a high degree of functionality, such as a touch-sensitive color 2D or 3D display, for example.

[00042] A client device may include or may execute a variety of operating systems, including a personal computer operating system, such as a Windows, iOS or Linux, or a mobile operating system, such as iOS, Android, or Windows Mobile, or the like. [00043] FIG. 1 is an architectural diagram of a system for implementing payments according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. In this embodiment, the system may comprise: a cash registering device 11, a client 12, and a server 13.

[00044] The cash registering device 11 can be any mobile computing device capable of transmitting a wireless signal to facilitate making a payment. A module suitable for short-range wireless communication may be integrated on the cash registering device 11, such as a Bluetooth module, an infrared (IrDA) module, a wireless local area network (WI-FI or WLAN, mostly based on the 802.11 protocol series) module, a Wi-Fi direct connection (WiFi Direct) module, an ultra wide band communication module, a Zigbee module, a near field communication (NFC) module, and the like, to implement receiving and sending of short-range wireless signals.

[00045] In one embodiment of the present disclosure, the below description uses the Bluetooth technology as an example. The Bluetooth technology is a short-range wireless communication technology, which replaces data cables, and supports point to point and point to multi-point communications, such that quick and convenient information exchange is implemented among devices.

[00046] The client 12 may be a terminal on which an application is installed, for example, a mobile application installed in the Apple® iOS® system, an application installed in the Google®

Android® system, or an application installed in the Microsoft® Windows®/Windows® Phone system. In combination with an installed application, the client 13 may communicate with the cash registering device 11 via Bluetooth.

[00047] The server 13 may be a server of a payment platform, used to complete verification of a payment-related information transfer and verification of a payment.

[00048] A merchant may install the cash registering device 11 for registering the payment in their shops. For example, the cash registering device 11 on which a Bluetooth module is integrated may be installed in a shop to perform the cash registering. In the process of an offline or online sale, a merchant may use the cash registering device 11 for registering the payment. Such a payment registering may be a pre-payment or a settlement after a transaction is made. For example, the client

12 may be a user's mobile terminal on which an application is installed. After a product or service transaction with the merchant is finalized, the user may make payment via the client 12. The server

13 may be the server of the payment platform as described above. The process of the cash registering between the cash registering device 11 deployed by the merchant and the client 12 described in an embodiment of the present disclosure generally needs information verification and accounting of the cash registering with the server 13 of the payment platform. [00049] A method for implementing payment according to an embodiment of the present disclosure is described with reference to an example as illustrated in FIG. 2, wherein the method includes step S210: The cash registering device sends a short-range wireless signal comprising an identifier of the cash registering device.

[00050] The cash registering device may send the short-range wireless signal comprising the identifier of the cash registering device by broadcasting the wireless signal.

[00051] The broadcast short-range wireless signal may specifically be a Bluetooth signal, an infrared signal, a wireless local area network signal, a WiFi direct connection signal, an ultra wide band signal, a Zigbee signal, a near field communication signal or the like.

[00052] Still using the Bluetooth technology as an example, the cash registering device may send a broadcast signal comprising the identifier (UUID) of the cash registering device via a Bluetooth module. The Bluetooth module may be identified by using a universally unique identifier (UUID). Each UUID ensures the uniqueness of a Bluetooth service in time and space terms. Specifically, the UUID may be a short integer (16 or 32 bits) and a long integer (128 bits). The UUID may be sent via a Bluetooth broadcast signal.

[00053] In one embodiment, the Bluetooth technology may employ the technology of Bluetooth low energy (BLE). In one embodiment, the iBeacon® technology may be used. The iBeacon® technology is developed based on BLE, and has the characteristics of low cost, wide extension and flexible customization. The iBeacon® technology enables a smart phone or other devices to run a corresponding command within the sensing range of an iBeacon® base station. In the example of this embodiment, the cash registering device may be an iBeacon® base station. iBeacon® has been employed on the iOS (iOS7) of the mobile terminals released by Apple® Inc.

[00054] The communication manner of BLE generally includes two types: advertising and connecting. Advertising is a one-way sending mechanism, which is a broadcasting mode. Under such a mechanism, a to-be-searched device (for example, an iBeacon base station and a cash registering device) may send a plurality of data packets at time intervals of 20 milliseconds to 10 seconds. The shorter the employed time interval, the quicker the electricity consumption of the battery, and thus the faster the device is found. A data packet includes a maximum of 47 bytes, which is generally constituted by the following portions:

1 byte: preamble (1 byte is used for the packet header).

4 bytes: access address (4 bytes are used for the address).

39 bytes: advertising channel Protocol Data Unit (PDU) (39 bytes are used for the PDC data packet).

3 bytes: CRC (3 bytes are used for the CRC data check). [00055] A BLE device may run in an advertising mode which is non-connectable (in such mode, all the information is contained in an advertising data packet). In addition, a BLE device may also run in a connectable mode.

[00056] The cash registering device in this embodiment may run in the non-connectable, advertising mode. As such, the cash registering device mainly sends out the identifier of the cash registering device in a broadcast mode. Specifically, the identifier of the cash registering device may be included in a PDU data packet as is described above.

[00057] The method can also include step S220: A client receives the identifier of the cash registering device.

[00058] Using Bluetooth technology as an example, the client may find the UUID of the cash registering device by scanning the broadcast Bluetooth signal. Specifically, the client installed on the terminal may actuate the terminal to scan the wireless signal by calling a bottom-layer application programming interface (API). In this way, the wireless signal sent by the cash registering device (for example, the Bluetooth signal sent in the broadcast mode) may be scanned. Since the Bluetooth signal sent by the cash registering device comprises the identifier information UUID of the cash registering device, the client may find the UUID by scanning the broadcast Bluetooth signal.

[00059] The method can also include step S230: The client acquires transaction information, and sends first information to a server.

[00060] The first information may comprise the transaction information and the received identifier of the cash registering device.

[00061] With respect to acquiring the transaction information, the client may receive an input operation of a user via a displayed interface element which may be input or selectable via a click, and thus receives the transaction information. Specifically, the transaction information comprises, for example, a transaction amount.

[00062] In one embodiment, in the process of acquiring the transaction information by the client, the user may have to verify a transaction password.

[00063] Between step S220 and step S230, the following step S221 may also be included.

[00064] S221 : The client queries from the server information of a merchant corresponding to the identifier of the cash registering device and displays the information.

[00065] The client may initiate a query request and send it to the server to query the information of the merchant corresponding to the identifier of the cash registering device. [00066] In one embodiment, the client initiating the query request and sending the query request to the server can be processed when the BLE device is run in a connectable mode (that is, the connecting mode), and, after the client establishes a connection with the server, the client can initiate the query request and send it to the server.

[00067] Through the query process, the merchant information corresponding to the identifier (UUID) of the cash registering device may be obtained. Thus, the client may display the queried information of the merchant in a webpage thereof, such that it facilitates the user verifying the merchant information before performing the subsequent payment steps, for example, confirming the payment to the displayed merchant.

[00068] The client may query from the server the information of the merchant corresponding to the identifier of the cash registering device via a data network established between the client and the server.

For example, the information query may be performed via a wireless communication connection based on such technologies as GPRS, 3G, 4G, 5G, WiFi or the like.

[00069] Nevertheless, in this embodiment, step S221 may also be skipped.

[00070] S240: The server receives the first information sent by the client, and registers the transaction information comprised in the first information into a merchant account corresponding to the identifier of the cash registering device.

[00071] Upon receiving the first information sent by the client, based on the merchant account registered in the payment platform, the server may register the transaction information comprised in the first information into a merchant account corresponding to the cash registering device. Specifically, the server may register the transaction account comprised in the first information into the merchant account corresponding to the cash registering device. Thus, in one embodiment, the payment registering is completed by the server.

[00072] According to the above embodiments, a short-range wireless communication module is integrated on a merchant's cash registering device; a connection is established with a payment platform server without an Internet connection, an identifier of the cash registering device of the merchant may be sent to a client, such that the client may send transaction information and information comprising the identifier of the cash registering device to the server; upon receiving the information, the server may register the transaction information, thereby completing the payment.

[00073] Based on the embodiments as illustrated in FIG. 2 of the present disclosure, as illustrated in FIG. 3, the method may further comprise one or more of the following steps:

[00074] S241 : The server returns a transaction result to the client.

[00075] S242: The client sends the received transaction result to the cash registering device.

[00076] S243: The cash registering device plays the transaction result. [00077] The server sends the transaction result to the client via the wireless connection, and the client sends the transaction result to the cash registering device via the short-range wireless connection. As such, the cash registering device may receive the transaction result without a need to establish a wireless connection between the cash registering device and the server.

[00078] The transaction result may be a file in the format of an animation, a picture and/or text. Upon receiving the transaction result, the cash registering device can play the transaction result, for example, by displaying the pictures or text, or playing videos or dynamic pictures, to notify the user of the client that the transaction is successful.

[00079] Based on the embodiments as illustrated in FIG. 2 of the present disclosure, as illustrated in FIG. 4, the method may further comprise one or more of the following steps.

[00080] S244: The server returns a transaction result.

[00081] S245: The client sends the received transaction result to the cash registering device;

[00082] S246: The cash registering device returns transaction result confirmation information to the client.

[00083] S247: The client sends the transaction result confirmation information to the server.

[00084] Upon receiving the transaction result, the cash registering device may return the transaction result confirmation information and may send the information to the server via the client. As such, the cash registering device may send the transaction result confirmation information to the server without establishing a wireless connection between the cash registering device and the server.

[00085] In an embodiment based on FIG. 2, the following steps, including S222 and S223, may be performed between step S220 and step S230, and steps, including one or more of steps S248, S249 and S24A, may be performed after step S240, as illustrated in FIG. 5.

[00086] S222: The cash registering device establishes a wireless connection with the client.

[00087] S223: The cash registering device generates a session identifier, and sends the session identifier to the client via the wireless connection established with the client; correspondingly, the first information in step S230 may further comprise the session identifier; correspondingly, after step S240 as illustrated in FIG. 2, the method may further comprise one or more of the following steps:

[00088] S248: The server returns a transaction result and the session identifier to the client.

[00089] S249: The client sends the received transaction result and session identifier to the cash registering device.

[00090] S24A: The cash registering device verifies whether the received session identifier matches the generated session identifier, and plays the transaction result if the received session identifier matches the generated session identifier. [00091] In the embodiments as illustrated in FIG. 5, the cash registering device may generate a session identifier and send the session identifier to the client. The current session may be identified by using this session identifier. As such, in step S203 of this embodiment, the session identifier, together with the transaction information and the device identifier, may be sent to the server. When the server returns a transaction result, the session identifier is also returned. In this way, when the cash registering device receives the returned transaction result and the session identifier, the cash registering device may verify, according to the received session identifier, whether the received session identifier corresponds to the session identifier generated in step S222, and thus determine whether the received transaction is the transaction result of this session.

[00092] In one embodiment related to FIG. 2 , prior to step S230, the method may further comprise one or more of the following steps, S201 and S202, as illustrated in FIG. 6.

[00093] S201 : The cash registering device sends a firmware version number of the cash registering device to the client.

[000157] The current improvements made to method processes in hardware or firmware are viewed as direct improvements in the hardware circuit structure. By programming the improved method processes to the hardware circuits, designers improve the corresponding hardware circuit structures. Therefore, an improvement of a method process may also be implemented into a hardware entity module. For example, the programmable logic device (PLD), (like the field programmable gate array (FPGA)), is such an integrated circuit, and the logical functions thereof are determined by its user's programming to the device. Designers generally write the programs by themselves to "integrate" a digital system on a PLD, with no need to request a chip manufacturer to design and fabricate the dedicated integrated circuit chip 2. In one embodiment, programming is implemented by using ("logic compiler") software, which is similar to the software compiler used for drafting of the program. The compilation of the original code also needs the specific programming language, which is referred to as Hardware Description Language (HDL). There are a variety of HDLs, such as Advanced Boolean Expression Language (ABEL), Altera Hardware Description Language (AHDL), Confluence, Cornell University Programming Language (CUPL), HDCal, Java Hardware

Description Language (JHDL), Lava, Lola, MyHDL, PALASM, Ruby Hardware Description Language (RHDL), and the like. Currently, the most common adopted languages are

Very -High-Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL) and Verilog2. People skilled in the art will understand that by performing some degrees of logic programming in the above-mentioned hardware description languages in the method process and applying the programming to integrated circuits, they can readily obtain a hardware circuit that implements the logic method process.

[000158] A controller may be implemented in various suitable manners. For example, a controller may be implemented in the form of a micro-processor or processor, a computer readable media storing computer readable program code (for example, software or firmware) which is executable by the (micro) processor, a logic gate, a switch, an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), a programmable logical controller or an embedded microcontroller. Examples of a controller may include, but not limited to, the following microcontrollers: ARC 625D, Atmel AT91SAM, Microchip PIC18F26K20 and Silicone Labs C8051F320; and a memory controller may be implemented as a portion of the control logic of a memory. People skilled in the art are aware that the methods and steps may be completely performed via logic programming in the form of a logic gate, switch, application-specific integrated circuit, programmable logic controller, and embedded microcontroller to implement the same function in addition to implementing the controller by using a pure computer readable program code. Therefore, this kind of the controller is deemed as a hardware component; and a device for implementing various functions which is included in the controller may also be deemed as an inner structure of the hardware component. Or even, the device for implementing various functions may be deemed as a software module for implementing the methods, and deemed as an inner structure of the hardware component as well.
