Create EMV Transaction with In-Person SDK for Android without UI in Background Service

The documentation seems not to mention anything about it, only the sample app seems to suggest that the In-Person SDK for Android includes UI components like a signature capture Activity that require an Android app trying to create an EMV transaction to have a UI component.

 

We have a payment application for magnetic stripe card readers that includes all UI components necessary including signature capture, and would just like to support EMV cards now, i.e. create EMV transactions that capture the payment when providing merchant login credentials and amount. Naturally an Android app just capturing the payment would be created as a background service without UI component.

 

Is that possible with the In-Person SDK for Android? If yes, how to go about it?

 

Thanks!
