Accepting credit cards has become the norm in today’s business world. Consumers often carry more plastic cards then cash.

Accepting credit cards has become the norm in today’s business

world. Consumers often carry more plastic cards then cash. A business

that does not accept payment cards is doing them a disservice. A mobile

credit card terminal is an extension of accepting these cards.

Many businesses already accept credit card payments however the ability

to accept the cards on the go is the next great step towards securing

higher volume sales. Many businesses do not understand what it means to

accept cards on the go.

To understand how the process works a business needs to understand what

this type of credit card terminal actually is. Commonly referred to as

a wireless terminal, the machine itself uses the GPRS wireless network

to process transactions wirelessly for any business that may be on the


Some of the advantages to accepting credit cards on the go are:

• Mobility

• Flexibility

• Convenience

• Ease of Use

• Quick and Reliable Transactions

A mobile credit card terminal will accept payments from virtually every

place that business can be conducted. The convenience is unparalleled

for both the consumer and the business. Traveling salesmen can now

complete a transaction on the road at the leisure of the customer.

Being able to accept payment cards where it was once though impossible

is benefit enough but there are even more great benefits. These

terminals are wireless, lightweight, and can go anywhere that you want

your business to have a presence. At a show, convention, sporting event

or even in someone’s own backyard you can now accept payments quickly

and reliably.

It is amazing to think that the technology for mobile credit card

terminals has gotten so great that a phone line is not even required to

process a sale. Some of the terminals now have a store and forward

technology that allows the sale to be accepted, a receipt printed and

the transaction is stored in the machine for later processing!

The terminals have many features and still provide the security of

swiping the card itself. Being a stand alone wireless unit might seem

as though it would have it’s limitations but the advantages far

outweigh any limitations. Many consumers worry about giving out their

credit card information but by allowing them to swipe the card means

that the card never leaves their hands.

There are many options to choose from when deciding on which mobile

credit card terminal is the best option for your business. It will

depend mostly on what type of business you are conducting and how often

you plan on using the equipment. Some of the basic terminals are

cheaper but the business may incur a gateway fee along with the normal

processing fees.

Whatever terminal that you decide to use for your company the

advantages are clear. Your business will now be able to process cards

on the go with all of the flexibility of being in the store. These PDQ Machines will boost sales and provide customers with sense of security

when purchasing in their own environment!
