As a business owner, when you apply for a merchant account, you are often torn between the idea of having a processing terminal or not. If you come to the conclusion that you need one, the next task is finding the appropriate processing terminal.
Choosing a processing terminal is not an easy task as there are numerous processing terminals on the market today. Just like with all other major monetary decisions that you have to make, it is essential to weigh the pros and cons of every available option before settling. The guide below can help you establish the option that appears most suitable for you.
If you specialize in services, the ideal choice would be a wireless or mobile processing terminal. The mobile readers enable merchants to accept payments at any place and time by simply downloading a mobile app on their device and converting into a portable processing terminal. Another viable option can be a wireless processing terminal that uses a tiny, card reader that you can hold in your hand to receive payments. Such devices are simple to use, and they are extremely secure. Maverick’s mobile processing is for mobile businesses on the go who need an easy, economical and efficient way to process sales wherever they are!
If your business is a restaurant or shop that transactions are mainly face-to-face ones, your best option is a countertop point-of-sale system. These processing terminals use a safe card reader actually to swipe the credit cards of the customers. For heightened security, you can opt to incorporate a PIN pad to process debit or even EBT cards and also to generate paper receipts along with EMV chip cards. With numerous terminals and point-of-sale systems, it is best to consult with a Maverick Account Executive to discuss your options and see which one is the best fit!
