Choosing the credit card processing terminal that best fits your business can help you cut costs and increase profits.
In face-to-face transactions, point of sale (POS) terminals are the preferred way of processing credit cards, debit cards, checks, electronic benefits transfers (EBTs) and other electronic transactions. The terminals are used in “face-to-face” transactions. The merchant will swipe the customer’s card through the terminal or key in payment information and the terminal does the rest.
There are many credit card terminals on the market, but the ones listed below are the most popular and easiest to use. They are equipped with the latest technology, and represent the overall best value.
For merchants who have access to an Internet connection, we strongly recommend an IP-capable terminal, as they offer superior speed and transportability. You’ll also save the expense of installing additional analog phone lines.
