In our last blog, we highlighted the many benefits that you provide your customers when you allow them to pay with their credit cards and debit cards. In Canada, this is especially important as our nation is becoming known as a “cashless society”. Simply put, Canadians have long been showing that they prefer to pay with plastic As we pointed out, it simply makes life more convenient to not have to walk around with cash.
We also mentioned that, at Canadian POS Corporation, we offer the Verifone VX 820 as our countertop terminal of choice. As explained by the Verifone website, “the VX 820 DUET is a dual-user, feature-rich countertop solution with design and functionality that meets merchants\’ and consumers\’ needs. Merchants appreciate getting what they need in one device – great functionality and consumer ease of use.”
But what are the key benefits of using the VX 820? Here are three:
1. It has a friendly design. This is important, not just because, it helps for your store to maintain its sleek and professional look, but the VX 820 DUET’s design is one that makes it very easy for customers to use. It’s large, bright-coloured touch screen display and comfortable-to-hold unit makes payment processing incredibly easy. The Verifone website highlights this benefit as one that makes it a top choice device.
“The VX 820 DUET has the muscle for fast transactions and the brains to deliver great customer interactions,” reads the site, “At their fingertips, consumers and merchants have a color, touch display with a large, user-friendly backlit keypad complete with an ultra-sleek PIN pad making it exceptionally easy to use.”
2. It has an expansive memory. Customers enjoy having things made quick and easy for them. Just ask anyone who has ever ordered food at a restaurant. Consider your own experiences as a customer and recall if there has ever been a time when you enjoyed having things take longer than you wished for. Using the VX 820 DUET as a point-of-sale terminal speeds things up, thanks to its expansive memory.
As explained by Verifone, “the VX 820 DUET offers increased processing speed with a powerful processor and expandable memory that supports a range of applications.” Keep in mind that the quicker you’re able to accept payments from your customers, the more satisfied they will be. Inevitably, this will translate into a growing customer base of loyal supporters.
3. It is highly secure. Arguably, the most important aspect of a payment method is that it is able to secure payments while diminishing the possibilities of fraud. The VX 820 DUET features fraud-reducing capabilities such as allowing customers to punch in PIN codes to process their payments. Verifone’s website elaborates on the features that come with the terminal that allow for it to be so secure.
“VeriShield Total Protect encrypts data transactions from end to end,” it explains, “The VX 820 DUET includes Verifone’s NFC software technology to manage multiple NFC mobile wallets, apps and programs.” If you’re looking to accept credit cards and debit cards as methods of payment at your store – and why wouldn’t you? – you can’t go wrong with the Verifone VX 820 DUET.
