Standard Credit Card Terminals

There are two types of credit card terminals commonly used by merchants in today's marketplace. Terminal with and without printers. Terminals without printers are the cheaper of the two terminals, and they allow the ability to add a printer in a seperate location from the processing machine, which is desirable in many environments. The all in one terminal with built in printer is the solution for many of today’s merchants. It offers a single compact unit that can be easily set up just about anywhere. There are two different printer options available with Terminals. The standard Impact Printer, with the ink ribbon system, and the newer more efficient thermal printer. The thermal printer uses no ink, and is usually easier to load paper due to drop in loading. It is slightly more expensive for a terminal with a thermal printer, but the cost is justifiable due to less upkeep and easier loading.

There are several brands of Terminals being used in the US today. Some of the more popular brands and models that they make are listed below.

1. Lipman / Nurit Credit Card Machines
2. Verifone Credit Card Machines
3. Hypercom Credit Card Machines
