When starting a business that will be accepting credit cards, it is important to find a credit card processing company that is reliable and trustworthy. Alpha Card Services understands these needs and now has three different types of credit card processing terminals available for merchant use at any business.
With a number of credit card processing terminals available today, it is really up to the business owner to make the decision on what they feel is the best fit for their company. If the business meets with its customers on a face to face basis, such as a coffee shop or restaurant, a credit card processing terminal is a good idea because this would require a “card present” purchase. Business credit card processing is also possible when using a terminal when it’s a “card not present” situation, for example if the business accepted mail order or internet orders. The information sent in can just be keyed into the terminal.
Here are the three main credit card terminals:
Traditional credit card terminals: Credit card machines or terminals work for the vast majority of businesses. Credit card terminals can come with or without printers and many credit card machines can also accept debit card swipes.
Wireless credit card terminals: Wireless credit card terminals are used by many taxi drivers and even in some restaurants. Make sure your merchant service supports the wireless credit card terminals you decide to purchase, and has plans to continue support in the immediate future.
Smartphone Processing: If you do the majority of your business offsite or in a mobile
environment, then you should consider smartphone processing. Smartphone processing allows you the mobility, security and convenience of accepting credit cards through popular smartphones, like the iPhone and Android.
Alpha Card Services is always available to talk to business owners and help them with the credit card processing connection that best suits their needs.
