Card machines accept payments from credit cards and debit cards. Every chip-and-PIN card comes with a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) that cardholders will then enter into the card payment machine.
Using a mobile card machine, the card issuer – the bank – is notified in real time about the status of the payment. This setup means that the payment process remains secure, and taking advantage of this feature means there’s no extra work required once the bank has approved the transaction. Smart card readers also allow small amounts to be paid, so you don’t have to worry about card machine costs. What’s more, your customers can purchase your products without having to pay a service fee.
Card terminals commonly connect to card issuers via regular telephone lines, wired or wireless internet. Mobile card payments can be made with Inspire Payment’s portable card machines, eliminating the need for fixed registers. How does that work? Just as it sounds, you can be paid anywhere. All you need to do is bring your card machine to the paying customer.
However, if a countertop card machine could work for your company, we can provide this for you. Many businesses choose a combination of terminal types to optimise their ability to serve quickly.
