Mobile and Wireless
Diversified and on-the-go merchants rely on credit card terminals that can keep up with them by delivering secure processing wherever and whenever the sale arises. When you need to accept credit cards in the field or at a customer’s home, mobile and wireless terminals have got you covered.
Whether you opt for our PayFox® app and card reader which turn your smartphone or mobile device into a credit card machine, or choose one of our compact and portable wireless terminals, you won’t miss a beat or a sale!
Mobile and wireless terminals are the right choice for merchants who operate outside the traditional retail setting, and for service providers who need credit card processing on the road.

VeriFone’s PIN pad 1000SE provides the perfect solution for merchants looking to capitalize on the rapid growth of debit, EBT and other PIN-based transactions.
A robust, ergonomic PIN pad for debit card transactions that delivers secure processing and features that are simple to use.
Credit Card Swiper
A credit card swiper, or reader, is an electronic device that reads the account information embedded in the card’s magnetic strip that’s needed to complete a transaction. A swiper is used for card-present (face-to-face) retail transactions.
Most credit card swipers feature an ergonomic, compact design and bi-directional read capability, making them extremely easy to use. Simply swipe the card through the reader to collect the necessary data, conclude the sale and issue a receipt.
The ergonomic design and compact size of this basic card swiper makes it ideal for use in point-of-sale situations where space is at a premium.
The final step in the credit card transaction process is issuing a receipt, which requires a printer. Many point-of-sale credit card terminals have a built-in printer, but they can also be bought separately.
Printer options include thermal, laser or ink jet. Other features to consider when choosing a printer are compatibility with your existing processing system, convenient drop-in paper loading, an auto cutter, easy-to-read LEDs, a fast print speed and a footprint that takes up minimal space on a counter or shelf.
Low-cost and quick solution for printing credit card receipts that comes fully equipped right out of the box.
