Credit and debit card processing machines, or PDQ, process data quickly, machines, are no longer optional for small and medium-sized businesses: they are a necessity, as checks are on the way out, and there is a global trend toward a cashless society.
With plastic card usage on the rise, businesses need to consider two things when choosing the right PDQ machine: increasing sales and reducing fraud by opting for a secure chip & PIN terminal.
However, the “is this system secure?” is followed by many other questions a business owner needs to ask him/herself, such as: how many card machines, and what type of PDQ machines are right for my business?
Answering the first question is easy: it depends on the size of the business. Alongside choosing between renting and buying one, the real challenge is to pick the right type of terminal. Business owners can choose between multiple types of PDQ machines: countertop, portable, and mobile.
