Credit card terminals have come a long way since the days of the bulky ZipZap machines businesses once used to manually copy a customer’s credit card data. Today, smart terminals allow merchants to swipe, insert, or manually enter credit card data for fast and convenient checkouts.
Not only that, today’s terminals are also becoming increasingly portable and versatile, such as Payanywhere’s Smart Terminal Mini.
Payanywhere’s Smart Terminal Mini is a portable device that is perfect for businesses who want to add mobility to their checkout process. The pint-sized terminal allows merchants to accept payments at their sales counters or on-the-go.
Features of the Smart Terminal Mini include NFC contactless technology, EMV chip, magstripe card reader, PIN debit, and a built-in camera for easy barcode scanning.
This small yet powerful payment device includes a 5-inch HD touchscreen and 4G and Wi-fi connectivity.
