Countertop terminals for small businesses

Countertop card machines are a must-have for shops or businesses that have a designated checkout area. As such, they’re the most popular card terminal for retailers, hotels, and salons.

They’re extremely reliable and can be powered by a wired internet connection, Bluetooth, or a phone line, enabling both card payments and contactless payments[1] . As they’re wired, they’re designed to be plugged in permanently so you won’t have to worry about it running out of charge midway through a busy period.

Whether you’re considering a countertop machine or a combination of fixed and portable card machines, we’ll assist you in getting the best payment solution for you.
