How can I use a third party CSMS?

If you would like to allow drivers to pay for their charging sessions using an eMSP card, this is possible by activating Swipe and charge (public). More information on the different Session Activation Methods can be found here. Smappee has its own CSMS, but it is also possible to use a third party CSMS of your choosing. The Smappee cloud will communicate with this CSMS via OCPP 1.6-J.

To use a third party CSMS, you will first need to activate 'Swipe and charge (public)'. Go to and navigate to the 'Charging station configuration' card:mceclip1.png



Here, you can edit the active 'Session Activation Methods' and fill in the host URL of the third party CSMS:
