Know Your Payment Processing Options

Posted by Jereme Sanborn on

Payment ProcessingThe best part of being alive today is knowing nothing stays the same from day to day. This type of whimsy can be great for mind and spirit, but it can cause a lot of sleepless nights for business owners. Making sure you have the latest technology to accept payments can cause business owners to toss and turn at night. But, if you’re a North American Bancard (NAB) merchant, or becoming one, you’ll have the equipment you need to process almost any payment — including those that use Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

We at North American Bancard understand that selecting payment processor can be difficult, and we don’t want price to stand in your way of picking what’s right for your business, that’s why we offer the largest selection of free equipment in the industry. You read that right; we offer free equipment to each merchant we work with — including terminals that are EMV and NFC-ready.

Let’s take a look at what types of point-of-sale (POS) systems we offer:

Credit card terminal — A credit card terminal is an electronic device that allows merchants to accept credit cards at the point-of-sale. From traditional countertop terminals to the rugged wireless units perfect for outdoor restaurants, NAB has a terminal to fit almost any need. Each terminal can use dial-up phone lines, VoiP or wireless to process a transaction. They can be equipped with a credit card reader, EMV-capabilities, NFC (think Apple Pay and Samsung Pay) and more.

Tablet solutions — A cloud-based payment solution that that allows merchants to accept credit cards and other forms of payments on a tablet. PayAnywhere Storefront has taken the tablet segment to the next level by offering a free 10-inch tablet for user-friendly dynamic–based transactions and a seamless checkout experience. PayAnywhere Storefront has one of the most robust payment processing apps available, giving users real-time analytics, the ability to add multiple users, email or print receipts for customers and much more.

Mobile credit card processor — These types of processors allow merchants to accept payments on the go so you’ll never miss a sale. NAB offers Phone Swipe, a mobile credit card processor that offers the ability to swipe or key in Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal cards at a low rate.

Virtual Terminal — A virtual terminal lets merchants instantly perform a transaction from any place on any device so long as they have a secure internet connection. The virtual terminals NAB offers are web-based applications that need no integration, making it as user-friendly as possible. A merchant services account is required to use a virtual terminal.

E-commerce — A payment gateway is needed to allow credit card payments for e-commerce businesses, online retailers, bricks and clicks, or standard brick and mortar businesses. It facilitates the communication of a payment transaction between various backend networks and protects the data it’s transferring from the merchant to the acquiring bank by encrypting all sensitive information related to the transaction. These types of transactions will need a merchant account, which is available from North American Bancard.

With a merchant services account from North American Bancard, not only will you be able to accept credit cards, you’ll get the equipment you use for free. No matter if you're looking for a traditional countertop credit card machine or a mobile device, we have what you’re looking for so you can get a good night’s sleep.
