IP Broadband Payment Terminals: The Benefits
Broadband card payment terminals can improve your efficiency in taking payments - no matter how many terminals you operate, or whether or not you already have a broadband connection.
- Lower cost - already have a Broadband connection? Use it instead of your dedicated phone line. One Broadband connection can be used for more than one terminal, allowing you to save even more money.
- Faster transactions - Broadband card payment terminals have recorded transaction times below two seconds, compared to 16 to 24 seconds for a dial-up terminal. Portable Bluetooth devices take just 4-6 seconds with a broadband connection.
- Multiple terminals on one router - a single Broadband connection can be used for any number of terminals. Compare this to dial-up terminals, each of which requires a dedicated telephone line.
- Secure transactions - SSL encryption is used between the terminal and Streamline. With the Streamline system, every Broadband card payment terminal is individually authenticated. This means we can deny access to any terminal that has been stolen - rendering the device useless.
