Features of portable card machines

Is a portable card machine the right option for your business?

Portable card machines are best suited for hospitality businesses such as cafes, bars and restaurants, as they can process payments at the customer’s table. Portable credit card readers work via a Bluetooth or Wifi connection.

Are portable machines the best for table service?

As the same suggests, portable card machines give you a little more room to work with when it comes to accepting payments. These are your best option if you want to accept payments from customers at their table so they can continue enjoying the end of their evening with minimal interruption.

Lose the cable. Get portable.

Portable card machine terminals are perfect for businesses that take payments from customers away from a till or across a number of locations. You will see restaurants and other hospitality venues using portable card machines inside and outside the venue, while a hotel may choose to take the portable route to facilitate payments anywhere on-site.

Since they are not directly connected to a power source at all times, most portable terminals have a charging dock on which they can be placed to keep their batteries charged. This, combined with their wireless connection to the internet, affords a far greater level of flexibility.

Other types of card terminals to consider

Using a SIM card with 3G/4G or GPRS, you’ll be able to take payments anywhere with network coverage.
