The Benefits of Using a Mobile PDQ Terminal

11th November 2009

When you start to look at all of the possibilities available for

mobile credit card terminals, you will most likely run into the term

'mobile PDQ terminal.' PDQ is 'Process Data Quickly,' and this term

will be very important to you if you need to process your customer's

cards for purchases. Most people are in a very big rush these days, and

they want their transactions completed quickly and easily. PDQ

technology allows for this, and there are many benefits to this type of

card processing.

  • Customers want speed. As mentioned earlier,

    your customers are in a hurry. They do not have time for you to look up

    their card number or call the credit card company to make sure that

    their card is good. They want to swipe their card, and move on their

    way. When you use this technology for your customers, they will be

    happy to do business with you in the future, and happy to tell their

    friends and family about your product in most cases. Furthermore, the

    faster you can wait on your customers, the more customers you can

    serve. Quick processing makes this possible.

  • A mobile PDQ

    terminal makes credit card transactions safe. Your customers demand

    security, and this type of device uses advanced technology, for greater

    levels of encryption, that make card payment transactions completely

    safe. Your customer's information cannot be stolen or misused, as it

    could be if you used an imprinting device. This is very important to

    your customers, and often, if they aren't sure that the transaction

    won't be safe, they won't make a purchase.

  • These type of

    devices for collecting credit card payments can be used anywhere in the

    world, in any type of environment. For many merchants who travel to

    foreign events, this has been a real problem in the past when it came

    to accepting payment cards internationally.

  • A mobile PDQ

    terminal is usually a wireless device. In many venues, electricity

    isn't available, and telephone lines are rare. Processing credit cards

    with the usual methods usually require both. This isn't the case with

    these types of devices - no electricity or telephone lines are needed.

    You don't even have to use a cell phone to perform the transactions.

  • This

    type of device is affordable for most businesses. You can purchase the

    device, or lease the device. If you didn't think that you could afford

    to accept credit cards in the past, you absolutely must reconsider, as

    you are most likely losing a large number of sales by not accepting

    credit cards.

As you can see, there are many important benefits to using a Mobile PDQ Terminal. These devices are typically small and compact,

wireless, and make credit card transactions secure for your customers,

enabling you to conduct business and make sales from any location in

the world. There are different types of PDQ systems available,

including systems for accepting payment online, either by the customer

inputting the information, or the merchant inputting the card
