These days it seems that credit card terminals become outdated than the latest cell phone! Once the memory capacity, encryption levels, PCI compliance parameter, or card payment acceptance method becomes outdated – the manufacturer and processing platforms will stop supporting the credit card terminal. This means that they will no longer develop new files or hardware to repair a unit that is malfunctioning. There can be a thousand reasons your business needs a new credit card terminal.
With required features including increased security files, EMV, and mobile payments combined with desirable features such as customer retention, reverse marketing, and upselling capabilities today’s credit card terminals do not at all reflect the common credit card terminals of 5 years ago! The average lifespan of legacy terminals is about 2.5 years while newer models have built in longevity with high amounts of memory, configurable software features, and even add on apps – today’s credit card terminals can be much more than just a way to accept credit cards.
