If you spent the entire summer without using a wireless terminal to accept Visa, MasterCard and Interac payments, you missed out. There’s no simpler way to put it. The benefits of accepting credit card and debit card payments with a wireless terminal are many. This was made evident by a number of merchants who decided to showcase their incredible products at the CNE this year. We even spoke to some them directly to get their thoughts.
Just last week, we interviewed Charlene Drakes of Vanish My Waist, who enjoyed her first year as a CNE vendor in the Direct Energy Centre. Accepting Interac as a method of payment, she says, was an excellent idea. “Giving my customers Interac as a payment option was one of the best business decisions I could have made,” she told us, noting that most people don’t walk around with a lot of cash on them anymore.
As you may have guessed, Drakes took advantage of the many benefits provided by wireless terminals. Naturally, a wireless terminal allows you to accept payments anywhere, at anytime. Business owners are not bound by the confines of their places of business in order to accept payments. So, as Drakes discovered this year, an entrepreneur can take his or her company “on the road” and sell merchandise to anyone who carries plastic.
At Canadian POS Corporation, we offer our clients the ability to accept payments using the Ingenico Telium2 iWL250G. This incredible wireless solution provides business owners with opportunities to efficiently and securely process transactions anywhere. It features a compact ergonomic design that allows for easy transport, as well as a long-life battery that ensures that you will have enough power to get through any busy day.
Not only does the Ingenico Telium2 iWL250G support a full range of payment types – credit cards, debit cards and gift cards – but it also accepts EMV “chip” cards through contactless technology. Customers can quickly and easily pay for their purchases using the convenient “tap and go” feature. With this wireless terminal, you can avoid the need for a phone line or an internet connection in order to process transactions.
Wireless terminals aren’t just for trade shows. Obviously, they can travel with you so that you can accept payments for your business anywhere you go. If your company delivers its products, then wireless terminals are perfect for you. You have the ability to deliver your item and accept payment immediately, just as you would cash. Customers can insert their cards and punch in their PIN codes right at their front doors!
This means that you don’t have to wait for your delivery personnel to return to your place of business in order to put through the transaction. That’s a very “old school” way of doing things. With the Ingenico Telium2 iWL250G, you’re able to accept payment right away, right there on the spot where the purchase is being made. If you’ve ordered a pizza anytime recently, you’ll likely have experienced this for yourself as a customer.
