Gone are the days of cash-only transactions. Customers now expect quick and easy ways to pay, and EFTPOS terminals have become the go-to solution. 

Choosing the right EFTPOS terminal can make all the difference in enhancing customer experience, streamlining transactions, and ultimately boosting revenue. But with so many EFTPOS terminal options available, choosing the right one for your business can be overwhelming.

To help you decide on the best fit for your big or small business, let’s take you through the ins and outs of each of your EFTPOS terminal options.

Mobile Terminals vs. Desktop Terminals: Which One Do You Need?

Before diving into the specific EFTPOS terminal models available, it’s essential to understand the difference between mobile and desktop terminals. Each type caters to different business needs and operational requirements.

Mobile Terminals

Ideal for businesses on the move or those with a dynamic storefront, mobile terminals offer flexibility and convenience. Whether you’re a food truck operator, a market vendor, or a service provider offering on-site services, mobile terminals enable you to accept payments anytime, anywhere. 

They’re equipped with wireless connectivity, allowing seamless transactions without the limits of physical wiring. With the rising demand for contactless payments, mobile terminals such as the Verifone T650P Android EFTPOS terminal and the Ingenico Move 5000 provide ‘Tap & Go’ technology, enhancing speed and efficiency at checkout.

Desktop Terminals

Desktop terminals, on the other hand, are stationary units suited for businesses with a fixed point of sale. These terminals are commonly found in retail stores, restaurants, and supermarkets. 

Designed for durability and reliability, desktop terminals like the Verifone V205C and Ingenico Desk 5000 offer robust performance to handle high transaction volumes. With features like push-button PIN pads, these terminals ensure secure cardholder verification, instilling trust and confidence in customers.

Now that we’ve discovered the difference between mobile and desktop terminals, let’s explore the range of EFTPOS solutions offered by Eftpos Now, tailored to meet the diverse needs of businesses in New Zealand.
