The surge in self-service requires a payment kiosk with a card reader. Our payment kiosks combine an iPad or table stand with card readers and other chip and pin devices, allowing for efficient and safe purchases on self-service kiosks. These are ideal for retail, restaurants and hospitality, particularly in high footfall settings.
imageHOLDERS integrate a wide range of magnetic swipe readers (MSR) for credit cards, chip and pin devices and contactless payment readers into payment kiosks. Chip and pin devices work with EMV payment cards. Payment cards that comply with EMV are often called Chip and Pin or Chip and Signature Cards. By using a tablet kiosk with contactless integrated card readers, you can create a POS system that is fit for purpose regardless of technology changes in the payment industry. This means that whatever payment your client chooses to use, you can accept.
Touch payment is the process of using Mifare and NFC to make secure payments using a variety of different devices such as credit cards, debit cards, smart cards and smartphones. An iPad or tablet stand with a card reader can easily take contactless payment from any compatible device. This quick and secure process allows the user to pay using their device at a payment kiosk.
All tablet kiosks with contactless are compatible with Apple Pay. This is a mobile payment or digital wallet service provided by Apple Inc which works using Apple Pay compatible devices. Apple Pay does not require specific contactless payment terminals but works with existing NFC POS payment kiosks.
An easy and secure way to pay for purchases costing £45 (this was increased from £30 in the UK as of 2020 – limits vary depending on the country) and under. Eligible cards have a contactless icon on the card.
On devices that support contactless payment, there is an ability to spend over £30 by verifying yourself on the device. E.g., through a passcode or fingerprint which can confirm your identity.
Google Wallet is a mobile payment or digital wallet service created by Google. This allows users to store data such as credit cards, debit cards, loyalty cards and gift cards on their mobile phones. Google wallet does not require special contactless payment terminals but works with existing NFC POS payment kiosks.
