Choosing the right point-of-sale terminal for your business is crucial. This essential piece of equipment makes a huge impact on your customers’ purchasing experience. A slow, unreliable point-of-sale (POS) terminal will delay sales and leave your customers with a poor impression of your business.
Ingenico terminals have a strong reputation in the business of POS terminals. There are over thirty million Ingenico terminals active in 170 countries. Some of their best, most popular models include the iCT 250, iWL 252, and iWL 255. While all of these are great options, there are subtle differences that might make a big difference to your retail operation. Here is some information about each model in order to help you make the best choice.
This POS terminal is lightweight, only weighing a little more than eleven and a half ounces. You can be confident that the device is secure on and offline. With the privacy shield, customers can keep their PINs safe.
You can even customize the display and the hardware itself to match your business’s branding. Whatever your preferred mode of connectivity, the iCT 250 has you covered. You can connect it via Ethernet or wireless. The fast printer that accompanies this terminal also prints 18 lines per second.
At just over 10 ounces, this is a smaller, more compact option for a POS terminal. The iWL 252 is a great option if you have any mobile component to your business that necessitates you taking the terminal on the go.
This terminal is durable—it’s water resistant and made with anti-shock technology. If you operate outdoors or a tough work environment, the iWL 252 can stand up to it. The iWL 252 can operate off Bluetooth. If your connectivity ever goes down, you can use the “store and forward” option to continue processing transactions. The super-fast thermal printer prints 30-lines-per-second.
The iWL 255 runs on long-lasting batteries if your business operates out of a rural location. Even a busy day, the iWL 255 stays strong all day. You’ll experience constant connectivity 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Like the 250, this terminal comes with an exceptional printer that prints 30 lines per second! This ensures that you can finish transactions quickly and assist the maximum number of patrons. The more patrons you help, the more business you’ll have.
All three of these terminals are compatible with all physical and wireless forms of payments. Your customers will be able to use near field communication (NFC) coupons and electronic wallets. Each POS terminal adheres to the strictest security standards including secure reading and exchange of data (SRED) and Open protocol modules. These machines are reliable and efficient. They won’t let you down when you have a long line of customers waiting to be served.
