It Starts With the Right Terminal
In a traditional retail environment, it's hard to beat a point-of-sale (POS) terminal for processing credit cards, debit cards and alternative payment forms. Simply swipe the customer's card, and the terminal does the rest.
Add a PIN device to the terminal, and you can easily process PIN debit cards and EBT transactions. It's also possible to convert your customers' checks into electronic payments.
For merchants on the go, a wireless device allows you to process transactions from just about anywhere your business takes you.
Regardless of your business, you can count on PNC Merchant Services® to offer POS terminals that are tailored to the way you do business.
Basic Card Processing -- Cost-conscious merchants don't have to forgo speedy transactions and robust fraud protection. Affordable terminal solutions combine performance, security, reliability and ease of use into a low-cost, feature-rich device.
Check Friendly -- In addition to securely processing credit, debit, EBT, and gift card transactions, POS terminals that support TeleCheck® Electronic Check Acceptance® (ECA) service allow you to convert customers' paper checks into electronic transactions. With the industry's most sophisticated check acceptance risk management system and a warranty service option for returned check liability, you'll feel more confident about accepting checks--including low-numbered, out-of-town and even out-of-state checks.
Multi-Merchant -- POS terminals are also available for business owners who operate in a multi-merchant environment but need a single point-of-sale (for example, a busy salon with multiple stylists or a multi-doctor medical practice). With this solution, multiple users/cashiers can utilize the same terminal, and each merchant can receive an individualized statement.
Payments on the Go -- Wireless payment terminals allow you to process card payments on the go--whether you're delivering floral arrangements, repairing broken plumbing or providing professional services in a client's office. Or, choose a solution that quickly and easily transforms your smartphone into a card processing device.
Advanced Connectivity -- The right POS terminal will not only meet your connectivity needs now but also in the future. Models are available with built-in support for dial with the option of combining dial and Ethernet. That means you can use dial today, then switch to Ethernet at any time for lightning-fast transactions without added cost or inconvenience. Other terminals feature advanced diagnostics with built-in failure checking - speeding up troubleshooting and reducing downtime.
