Take Chip & PIN payments virtually anywhere with mobile card machines.
Many business people and tradesmen such as electricians and plumbers operate their business on the road, in customer’s homes or places of work. Due to the nations “card payment culture” taking cash payments for goods or services can sometimes be challenging as the average maximum amount of cash a person carries around is only £20. A portable card machine operates virtually anywhere just like a mobile phone, giving you the ability to accept card payments seamlessly whether you operate at home, on the road, or on the high street.
The mobile card machine connects to the O2 network with a 3G connection so anywhere you find phone coverage, the mobile card machine will be able to process a card transaction. This means you can take the machine with you where ever you go, especially due to the light and portable design. Also, as the machine runs off a 3G connection it will also free up your landline for other business. The machine is also battery operated and can be charged via mains power or a car, for increased portability. When the mobile card machine is not in use you can simply switch it off to save battery life.
To operate the machine simply enter the transaction amount and hand the machine over to the customer to enter their PIN. The machine will encrypt the transaction data using a 128 bit connection and send the connection to the bank to process the transaction. After a few second the screen will display the transaction as confirmed or declined. The machine can also be used to process refunds. The mobile card machine has the same level of security as a countertop card machine, as the transaction follows all the same security checks. The machine requests a PIN number from the customer encrypts the transaction data and send the message through a secure 3G connection.
