Visa Mastercard Terminals

Visa Mastercard terminals are more commonly referred to as a credit card terminal, PDQ or Chip & PIN terminal in the payment industry. We are a payment specialist and all our POS hardware is compatible to accept Visa and Mastercard payments. In addition to this, all software that comes on our Visa Mastercard terminals is PCI compliant. Multiple payment types are accepted using Ingenico credit card terminals, and we are recognised as an official Ingenico UK reseller.

Introducing a credit card terminal to your business will provide more payment options for your customers, and open up new opportunities for your business. If you aren’t looking for face-to-face card payments, then we also have the ability to offer a virtual terminal solution which will allow you to accept debit, credit and Mastercard payments. All credit card terminals in the UK payment industry have to meet stringent checks, and have to be PCI compliant. PCI DSS, which stands for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, is managed by the PCI security standards council founded 13 years ago in 2006 by the five biggest credit card providers and this ensures the required levels of security are met whilst processing and transmitting card holder data.

Card Machines for Hire

Card terminal hire has grown rapidly in the last decade. Card terminals have become increasingly more cost effective in recent years, and as the advances into payment technology has evolved the monthly outlay for leasing or renting a card terminal has dropped. It is also worth noting, that card terminal rental makes up just a fraction of the total cost for businesses wishing to accept credit and debit cards. The main cost will primarily come from the merchant account and the charges per transaction based on the price and quantity of transactions being processed.

Whilst the cost of a credit card terminal can be minimal in the grand scheme of things, choosing the wrong payment solution can carry detrimental consequences. Basic card terminals will come with many standard features including a display screen, and in nearly all cases the ability to accept Chip & Pin and contactless payments. The most popular card terminals come with thermal printers and lithium batteries, and in some cases Pin pads that allow you to keep the credit card terminal safely out of the customer’s reach. First rule of thumb with any card terminal hire is to determine how long you want to hire the machine for. Any reputable payment provider should offer flexible payment options.

Manufacturers of Credit Card Terminals

In the UK payment industry Verifone and Ingenico represent over two thirds of the current UK market place.

Credit Card Terminals for Small Businesses

Credit card terminals are now widely used for small business owners in the UK as the advances in technology have developed and the cost has fallen, this has made it readily available for small business owners without breaking the bank. Small business owners must also factor in the cost on a merchant account before accepting credit card payments. Although the processing fees may not appear a lot, the charges can soon escalate so it is important to find a merchant acquirer who will provide you with competitive, cost effective merchant processing rates that will enable your business to grow. Other aspects you will need to factor in on a merchant account is the minimum monthly spend and PCI compliance fee.

Once you have got the merchant account in place, it is time to get equipped with a credit card terminal for your small business. Mobile card terminals are very popular primarily on the basis that you can take payments on the go, and you don’t need to be in one set location. They also are extremely popular for small businesses that want to process transactions but may not be trading from one set location.

Monthly Fees for Credit Card Terminal Lease

Credit card terminal lease is one option UK businesses look at whilst contemplating about investing in payment technology. Some companies in the payment industry will offer you a standard 36 month agreement package, whereas other payment providers will offer a bespoke lease agreement tailored towards the needs of your business. If you are a seasonal business or perhaps only trade at various points of the year, it could also be worth looking at short term credit card terminal hire which offers one fixed fee based around the specific dates of your requirements.

Short term credit card terminal hire offers easy sign up with no fixed monthly fees, no lock-in and you only pay for the time you need the credit card terminal.
