What is the Best Card Terminal?

The best type of credit card terminal is very much dependant on how you trade, operate and sometimes the type of business you run. For example, you will seldom see a countertop credit card terminal in a hospitality setting, this is mainly because the environment and setting is geared around a personal table service which can enhance the overall customer experience. If you’ve ever been in an establishment in a hospitality setting, you will normally find business owners opt for a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi credit card terminal.

The best credit card terminal isn’t always governed by price. The main UK card terminal manufacturers are Spire, PAX, Verifone, Castle Technology and Ingenico all of which offer reliable hardware with each manufacturer offering unique selling points against their individual payment hardware. Wireless Terminal Solutions specialise in credit card terminal solutions and other payment services that will look to add value to the point of sale hardware with merchant services and other self-service point of sale payment services. We are recognised as one of the market leaders in card terminal accessories and other suppliers for Ingenico card terminals. If you already have an existing merchant account and are solely looking for a reliable robust credit card terminal, why not entertain the Move5000 which provides a plethora of payment features without compromising on quality and security. We can have you equipped with the Ingenico Move5000 in a matter of days at a cost effective card terminal lease.

Bank Accounts and Card Processing

The merchant account and payment industry in the UK has become very competitive and densely saturated in the last decade. You will have various companies offering card processing which will be linked to your bank account. If your business is deemed or constitutes a high risk business, i.e. gambling or travel industry, your merchant processing rates and set up fees relating to the merchant account will invariably differ compared to those standard card processing. Whilst this may seem unfair, high risk companies can carry a lot of risks when it comes to card processing, most notably charge backs and in this case is very much adhering to the merchant bank’s rules. When it comes to card processing and bank accounts, every business should be taken on face value and it’s important to remember that no two businesses are the same. When you get a quote from Wireless Terminal Solutions, we will provide a detailed quote based on the card processing and credit card terminal requirements tailored to your needs. If your business is deemed a high risk merchant applicant by the acquiring bank, it may just involve additional information on the application on how your bushiness operates but it is important to remember achieving a merchant account is still possible.
