Choosing The Right Service For Receiving POS Payments

Finding the right POS payment solution is crucial, because without the right service, processing delays can limit efficiency and high rates will drive down profits. This leads to fewer transactions per hour and can frustrate customers and employees. Fortunately, finding a great system for accepting POS payments is simple for businesses that know what to look for and how POS payment solutions differ from one another.

For instance, the process that a POS payments terminal uses to authenticate a customer’s identity before accepting a bank card purchase can differ greatly from one provider to the next. All POS payment solutions need to provide a secure means of authentication, but various authentication tokens and encryption methods are used to send and verify a customer’s bank card information. What’s more, different POS payment services might use different means for connecting to the switches that provide return authorizations. This results in different levels of delay for transactions. A business should ask about average delay time when choosing a POS payment solution. Down time is also important; some terminals might have more down time than others, and when a terminal can’t connect to a switch due to scheduled maintenance and down time, transactions can’t be processed. However, most credit card processing companies now offer very low down time of 1% or less, and even when scheduled down time is a necessity, some terminals have built-in features that temporarily store customer information and avoid the need to rescan a bank card multiple times.

The best services for processing POS payments will have several terminals to choose from, including wireless and wired options. Processing companies should also be able to add a new terminal to a customer’s account in a matter of days. While a business may only need a single terminal at first, it’s important to plan for growth, and credit card processing companies with a variety of terminal options and quick installation services will be better equipped to meet the needs of a growing business. What’s more, extra options allow for flexibility when a company needs to move or replace an inefficient terminal. The best POS payment solutions will also be able to take a variety of bank card types, as this gives customers more options and leads to better efficiency and more sales overall.

All businesses with a physical location need to accept POS payments. Finding a service with low rates and superior technology makes a big difference when taking credit and debit card payments, and by looking at several options, businesses can choose a great credit card processing solution for an excellent point of service.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
