Features of countertop card machines

What is a countertop card machine?

Countertop terminals are always connected to a power source and a phone line or broadband router via an ethernet cable. This makes them ideal for businesses that have a fixed point of sale such as a till.

Often seen in retail stores with tills, fast food outlets with a fixed order desk and supermarkets with checkouts, countertop terminals are the machines of choice for many small businesses globally.

Other types of card machines to consider



They are always connected to a power source as well as a phone line or broadband router.

They’re generally the cheapest range of card machines and also the fastest, due to them connecting directly to your phone or broadband line.

They’re also hooked up to your main power supply, which means you don’t have to worry about battery life and recharging.

In the flip side, this means they are not portable. Whether this is a problem for you or not depends on how your business operates.

Some of the most popular countertop card machines in the UK are Ingenico iCT250, iCT350, Desk 3500 and Desk 5000. Less prevalent, but still popular are the P400 from Verifone and Castles Vega 3000.

The cost of a card machine will typically range between £15-£25 per month but it can be cheaper depending on the type of card machine and the nature of your business (volume of card sales, card machines required etc).
