Wireless Credit Card Processing FAQ
We’re living in a wireless world – where you can reach the Internet from your laptop at a coffee shop and take your business wherever you go. So it’s no surprise that you can also go wireless when it comes to accepting credit card payments. At BluePay, we offer secure wireless credit card terminals and solutions, allowing merchants of every size and type to improve their business, no matter where their business takes them.
Below, we’ve compiled answers to frequently asked questions regarding wireless credit card processing.
What are the benefits of wireless credit card processing?
Wireless credit card terminals eliminate the need for a landline connection or a direct Internet hookup, which are required for traditional stationary terminals. Going wireless means that you have access to all the same functionalities of a traditional terminal – a magnetic stripe reader, keypad, PIN pad and display screen – everywhere. Process major credit cards, debit cards and checks safely, efficiently and on-the-go.
Who uses wireless credit card processing?
Every merchant type can use wireless credit card processing to improve business. Small business merchants without a brick-and-mortar establishment can bring their business to fairs and markets – increasing convenience and profits by accepting credit cards on the spot. Restaurant merchants can use wireless terminals for tableside bill payment to improve security and service. Enterprise level merchants can accept credit card payments wirelessly at industry trade shows. Salespeople and delivery and service workers can swipe credit cards at the customer’s front door, and drivers can accept credit card payments right from the vehicle.
What is the difference between wireless and mobile credit card processing?
While both wireless and mobile credit card processing allow merchants to accept credit card payments anywhere, the two are very different. Wireless credit card terminals are often the same as stationary terminals, yet without the need for direct hookup. The credit card is swiped or entered in much the same way as through a traditional terminal. Mobile processing, however, allows merchants to accept credit card payments, access accounts and even send receipts through their mobile phone.
How are wireless credit card terminals protected?
BluePay’s wireless credit card terminals comply with PCI standards, meaning that they adhere to strict security guidelines in order to keep merchants, businesses and consumers safe from fraud.
