Are you joining an event somewhere and your business needs a payment processing system for a while? Attending a trade show or even this holiday season’s year-end sale where busy shoppers rush and hush? You may somehow wish to have a credit card machine along. Well, sit back and relax. Either fixed or mobile card terminals, credit card machine rental options apply to both.
While you may not see the need to get one, say, because you are not into running any business or needing any payment transactions, it’s still good to know how to do it for future reference.
Options for Card Machine Rentals
- Just like renting a car or a room, card machine rental contracts vary according to the length of time you need for your business which may last longer than a year.
- Rental cost plays to around £25 per day. They require an advance deposit set-up fees. But sometimes it can be waived depending on the agreement. Still, it is important to set aside an amount for returnable budget and a few extra charges.
- It is more convenient to take a terminal from your merchant services provider which is a much simpler way than sourcing separately your card payment machine from other sources. A reliable merchant services provider like Redfynn Technologies may be a good source of a card terminal that can directly link to their system.
It is very popular nowadays especially for those who had just begun a business or still a growing business and hesitant to invest in credit card machines to rent hosted chip and PIN solutions where the transactions are automatically logged onto the host server. For those who are on a strict budget, there are cheaper credit card machines for rent which undergo previous restoration or repair. To ensure continuous and convenient service using these machines, the rental agreement contract must ensure quick replacements when breakdown suddenly occurs.
Post-sales or post-rental supplies and maintenance
In addition to the abovementioned, it is important for the lessee to ensure that all the needs will be provided by the card terminal provider. One cause of inconvenience is the neglect of paper rolls and inkjets for the terminal card printer and forfeits the purpose of having such machine. Thus it is necessary for the card terminal provider to provide enough paper rolls and inkjet for the card terminal.
The software, as well as the machine, needs to be upgraded. They must also provide a reliable support and maintenance service to the lessee. The machine and technical support for installation includes easy installation and the actual sim card. The PDQ Machines must be compatible with the lessee’s business network and mobile handset.
Knowing the options to consider when renting credit card machines is very crucial as nobody wants to get surprises once the transactions begins to roll.
