Everyone knows that accepting credit cards can speed up transactions, improve the image of your business and ultimately boost your business. What you may not know is that the hardware and software used to process credit card transactions vary significantly from one manufacturer to the next, and that different credit card service providers have very different offerings. Some providers sponsor equipment from a certain manufacturer, while others offer a variety of makes and models to best suit the needs of the diverse small and medium size businesses that offer credit card processing to their customers, whether in person, over the phone, or via the Internet.
One of the most capable and thus the most popular makers of modern credit card scanning machines is VeriFone. Founded in Hawaii in 1981, VeriFone is the premier brand in the world of electronic payment solutions, with current models like the Vx510 and Vx570 dominating the market place in point-of-sale, self-service credit card pay stations. Although VeriFone produces a variety of products, the company’s concentration remains on merchant-operated consumer-facing credit card payment systems designed for self-serve transactions like those seen in the retail industry, professional offices, and gas stations.
VeriFone’s Vx series of credit card scanning machines is increasingly popular due to its flexibility and ease of use. This series of countertop terminals includes both dial-up and Ethernet access, for maximum convenience and compatibility. The Vx570 combines increased memory for value-added apps with super speedy transactions to offer the best overall user experience. Used by merchants across the globe, the VeriFone Vx570 is PCI PED approved (Level 1 and Level 2) and includes a super readable backlit display with an anti-glare finish and a simple, ATM-style interface with bold, legible text. For instant software downloads, the Vx570 also includes a convenient USB memory drive.
VeriFone is currently headquartered in San Jose, California, and has offices all over the world. For more information on how your business can benefit from VeriFone credit card scanning machines, please visit www.intlcardservice.com.
