All your queries answered.
There isn't one. Both terms are interchangeable and refer to a machine that processes credit and debit card payments - like those you see in shops, bars and cafes every day. The terms 'card terminal', 'PDQ machine' and 'Chip & PIN machine' also refer to the same device.
There are three main types of terminals: Countertop, Portable and Mobile. With each one serving particular needs, it’s vital that you choose the right card machine for your small business. Countertop Machines, as their name suggests, let you process card payments from your sales counter only. Reliable and secure, they’re perfect for merchants with fixed premises, like shops and cafes. Portable Machines allow you to accept card payments anywhere within 100m of your till or EPoS. This flexible, pocket-sized solution connects to your system with Bluetooth and is an essential for any restaurant or table-service business. Mobile Machines give you the freedom to take card payments anywhere on a secure wireless network. The perfect option for any on-the-road merchant.
With our superfast setup, your card machine will arrive within 3 days of your merchant account approval. That’s far faster than other providers, who can take weeks or even months to register customers and deliver their terminals. At Paymentsense, we’re always striving to improve our service and ensure that your small business will never miss a sale.
Yes - and it’s now easier than ever. We know how important it is to take cards so we've made sure that all of our card machines work straight out of the box. All you have to do is switch on your terminal and follow the on-screen instructions. Your setup should take no more than a few minutes. If you have any difficulties, our friendly UK-based team is one phone call away. We have the expertise to help you resolve any issue and make your setup as straightforward as possible.
Our card terminals accept payments from all major credit and debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and American Express. Businesses and customers alike expect card machines to be compatible with every card type, so it’s vital that ours meet that expectation.
Yes, all of our card machines come with Contactless, Apple Pay and Android Pay. Plus we never charge extra for any form of payment. Contactless and smartphone payments are increasingly popular, so it’s only right that our card terminals meet that demand. For more information, go to our Contactless payments page.
Our card payment machines are among the most robust and reliable on the market but in the unlikely event of yours malfunctioning, you can call us and we’ll hopefully be able to fix the problem over the phone. However, if the problem cannot be fixed remotely, we’ll have a brand new replacement sent to you within 24 hours. At Paymentsense, we know that a functioning card machine is vital for your small business, and that’s why our maintenance and replacement services are so quick.
