Retail Point of Sale
For your traditional point-of-sale processing needs, a Merchant Express® retail merchant account enables you to authorize, settle and manage credit card transactions from your retail store using a variety of point-of-sale solutions and connectivity methods.
Point-of-Sale terminals are the backbone of face-to-face (card present) credit card processing in the retail environment, and Merchant Express offers a variety of state-of-the-art, fully-equipped, PCI-compliant terminals that make quick work of authorization, settlement and management of transactions.
Everything needed to process a credit card or signature debit card transaction can be found in a countertop point-of-sale terminal, including a magnetic cardreader, phone or Internet connection to the processor and a receipt printer. Add on a keypad and you’re ready to process PIN debit cards and EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) cards.
Many of our customers combine our robust Transaction Express™ electronic payment gateway with Internet Protocol (IP) enabled point-of-sale systems to gain an end-to-end solution that far surpasses dialup systems in efficiency and reliability.
IP-based point-of-sale systems offer several advantages:
- Faster checkout adds to customer satisfaction by speeding up lines at the register. Serving more customers in a shorter period of time can also benefit your bottom line.
- Reduced costs are realized by eliminating multiple dedicated telephone lines and consolidating service costs for broadband.
- Stability and reliability are boosted as the electronic payment gateway is continuously monitored for performance.
- Real-time online reporting is available by simply logging onto a secure website portal and entering your password. Transaction status is immediately accessible as it becomes available from the networks.
- Redundant systems across geographic boundaries back up Merchant Express‘s processing environment, and optional dial backup capabilities ensure processing in the event of an Internet outage.
Merchant Express processes millions of transactions every month across our networks to deliver best-in-class processing to meet your business needs. As the credit card processing industry continues to evolve, we’re committed to ensuring that you have the best processing solutions available, incorporating reliability, speed and security in every product and service we bring to market.
