Portable point of sale (PoS) terminals are key elements in payment systems for retailers or restaurants in Smart Cities. These battery-powered terminals have small form factors and can integrate functions such as display, card reader, keypad and printer.
Terminals usually include wireless communication to a back-office server or a main stationary ePOS terminal. They can also support magnetic, smart and (more recently) contactless payment cards.
PoS terminals require compliance with the highest data security and integrity requirements and certification from Payment Card Industry and EMV organizations.
With NFC on board, the user interface couldn’t be simpler. A tap of a bank card or NFC-enabled smartphone is enough to complete the transaction – so payments are quicker and easier than ever to process.
