The differences between a card machine and a card reader
There aren’t any.
This technology is the kind that comes with a variety of interchangeable names and descriptions.
A card machine, card terminal, card reader, PDQ machine, and chip and PIN machine are all different ways of saying the same thing. One thing’s for sure, no matter what you call it, we can help you find the perfect one to suit the specific needs of your business.
Find the best card machine for your business
At Valitor, we completely understand that every business is different. That is why we offer a range of different card terminals, to give our customers the ability to accept payments no matter what. We even try to best suit the unique needs of your specific business. Our card machines include:
- Fixed line or countertop terminals which are ideal for businesses like shops, bars and salons, as they fit snugly on top of your sales counter.
- Portable, bluetooth-enabled terminals are great for use in open-plan areas or for businesses like restaurants and cafes because they are portable. With a portable terminal, you can take payments table-side, or use your terminal to reduce the wait time in queues.
- WiFi enabled mobile card terminals are a good option if you plan to take card payments in a range of different WiFi hotspots.
- Mobile card machines are perfect for businesses that operate from any location, be it inside or out. If you are often on the move or if you attend regular business events – such as trade shows – then this could be the card reader for you.
- Contactless machines allow your customers to make contactless payments using contactless credit or debit cards, or via smart tap and pay methods such as Android Pay, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
How easy is it to set up a card machine?
When it comes to setting up your new card terminal, the steps involved are simple and straightforward. We will take a few details from you in order to open up your new merchant account and set up your card machine(s).
After that, we will send you an email asking for you to electronically sign the terms and conditions. Once all the paperwork has been signed and processed, you can be up and running with your new terminal in as little as 3 days.
What are the costs for a small business to get a card terminal?
The price of setting up a card machine tends to vary depending on the type of terminal you choose and the length of time you wish to have that terminal for. Merchants will also pay a small charge per transaction depending on the type of card being used, such as credit or debit card. If you would like to find out more about the costs of accepting card payments, get in touch with us today.
The types of cards you will be able to accept
All of our card machines accept all major debit and credit cards, including: Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and American Express.
What’s more, our range of contactless card terminals accept all the latest “tap & pay” solutions such as Apple and Google Pay.
How often will the card reader need to be recharged?
Our mobile card machine batteries will last up to 8 hours on just one single charge if you are taking back to back payments. The battery life will obviously last longer than 8 hours if the card machine isn’t in constant use of taking payments.
Either way, you can rest assured that your new card terminal will see you through the entirety of the average work day without needing a recharge.
