Point of Sale Solutions
Our forte is in 'payment solutions'.
We offer a variety of payment acceptance products. Which one is right for you?
It really depends on many factors including potential risk associated with fraud, risk of chargebacks, environmental conditions (where you accept payments) and more. Unless you've already consulted with a professional or have done a lot of research, we recommend an independent consultation before buying any POS hardware.
Our POS Solutions fall into 3 categories:
- Equipment designed specifically for credit card processing, "terminals".
- Hosted payment solutions.
- Software that installs on a computer and integrates with other peripherals.
Equipment sales is not our core business. Solutions are. We procure hardware for merchants at wholesale prices as needed, however, merchants can always source equipment from any provider.

Some of the more popular units are listed below. Due to rapid market changes, this page may get outdated, however, we always offer the latest PCI compliant hardware.
Signature Capture Terminals (2014)
The Ingenico Telium iCT250 is fully compliant with Visa's Technology Innovation Program, as well as the MasterCard EMV Roadmap. "There are very few solutions available to merchants that can support all of the emerging payment types, and even fewer are truly operational,” says Thierry Denis, president of Ingenico, North America. The Telium iCT250 can accept payment via EMV chip card, NFC-enabled mobile phone, contactless card, or traditional magstripe card.
