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, type of business 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. There are many companies selling terminals to get you "EMV Ready", but that's not the same as getting the terminal and merchant account EMV enabled.
Our POS Solutions fall into 3 categories:
- Equipment designed specifically for credit card processing, "terminals".
- Hosted payment solutions (virtual terminal which uses high speed Internet).
- POS Software that installs on a computer, integrates with other peripherals that are managed by a hosted payment solution- the payments are segregated from the POS application
