If you’ve decided your business could benefit from a credit card processing terminal but aren’t sure which option best suits your needs, check out the types of terminals available. Each come with their own set of features that work for specific businesses, such as retail or mobile companies. Let’s take a look:
Ideal terminals for face-to-face sales, wireless options best serve the retail and hospitality industries, restaurants, and other professional service providers. Often easily portable, such terminals support credit and signature debit, and include printers for customer receipts. The Way 5000 is one option that even supports gift cards and cash receipts. The Nurit 8020 is another possibility that like the Way 5000 operates on a wireless GPRS network. It accepts all major credit and debit cards, features a signature capturing screen, internal PIN pad, and a built-in printer.
A traditional credit card processing terminal isn’t necessarily “old-fashioned”! Options such as the Nurit 2085 work well if your business requires frequent transaction processing over a traditional phone line. A versatile, reliable option, the Nurit 2085 is incredibly user-friendly credit card processing terminal that accepts multiple merchant accounts and remains one of the industry’s most popular. The VX 510 DC is another more traditional terminal that features an ATM-style interface and efficiently processes credit and debit transactions. A lightweight device, it requires virtually no training to use and comes with an integrated printer and built-in PIN pad.
Mobile Phone Terminals
Mobile phone credit card terminals attach to smartphones, thus transforming them into easily-portable devices for accepting major credit and debit cards. SmartSwipeis a viable option that attaches to iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches, and comes with an array of features. Such features include a tax calculator, tip functionality, text and email receipts, memos in history, cash transactions and an item control feature. The latter allows you to add images of products and services, set prices and write descriptions. Smartphone terminals are ideal if your business requires frequent travel.
Operating an online business or web store requires a secure method of accepting credit and debit cards. Transactions using virtual terminals are near-instant and don’t require card swipes. An excellent solution if your business needs include recurring billing, data is transferred using secure encryption technology.
Perform a little research on your own to discover which of these options works best for your business! Enjoy doubling if not tripling business by offering customers more than one way to pay.
