The most powerful, flexible & cost effective terminals on the market.
Card payments are the nation’s favourite way to pay for goods and services, and most shops on the high street now hold a countertop card payment machine to accept payments over the counter. These card processing machines remain stationary and are usually fixed to the counter and wired into the till.
When a customer makes a purchase, the sales clerk will enter the cost into the countertop card terminal and the customer enters their pin number to authorise the transaction. The countertop card machine helps to provide your customers with reliable, high quality service every time.
The machine encrypts the transaction data for security using a 128 bit encryption. The data is then sent to the bank to be processed through a broadband connection. Once the bank has processes the transaction it sends back the transaction as either verified of declined. This method of transaction processing insures a sufficient level of security when people make card purchases. The transaction takes seconds and makes card payment quick and simple. The machine also prints receipts, one for the merchant and one for the customer.
Countertop card machines are commonly used in high street retail, in shops where the point of sale is at the till. The machines are powerful, flexible and cost effective. The machines are small easy to handle and easy to use. They are able to support a range of transactions including refunds. Many counter top card payment machines are now also able to process contactless payments, so the customer doesn’t even need to enter a pin making payment for good faster than cash.
