Desktop, Mobile & Portable terminals. Confused..?

Which is right for you?


As a merchant you need a method to take payment. And it has to do everything you need it to. Broadly there’s three specific types: Desktop, Mobile & Portable. Yes – there’s others but these are the primary types.

So which is right for you?

All the terminals we supply are feature rich – that’s a given – some are more expensive than others, some are aimed at smaller budgets. We can advise you – and you may be presently surprised that our recommendation may not be the most expensive top-of-the-range.

We partner three terminal manufacturers – Ingenico, PAX and Castles. They’re all good terminals for sure – but there may be situations where your customers expect to see a better solution in front of them or one that is more design aware, slicker & oozes quality. We have it covered.

But take a few moments to have a look at some of our favourite machines – that we know do the business for our customers. 

Any questions..?  We’re all ears.
