Solutions offered by PNC Merchant Services that will enable you to accept credit and debit cards from your clients include:

POS Terminals
With a point-of-sale (POS) terminal, you simply swipe the customer's credit card, and the terminal does the rest. By adding a keypad to the terminal, you can easily process PIN debit cards as well as a wide variety of advanced payment devices.

If you provide services outside of a traditional office or retail environment, solutions exist to turn your smartphone into a card processing device. This allows you to process transactions from just about anywhere your business takes you.
