Get Secure Payment Processing Equipment for Your Educational Institution


You have a variety of options for user-friendly, point-of-sale equipment here at Credit Card Processing Specialists. Our team can work directly with you to help you ascertain which solutions will work best depending on your specific needs. There are also options that require no additional equipment – take a look at your options below, and learn more:


Dial Terminals – A dial terminal is a traditional terminal that processes payments via a telephone line. Your administrative staff can still continue to utilize the telephone line when it is not processing payments. This option is low cost and you can begin processing payments right away.


IP-Based Terminals – An IP terminal is the “next generation” in payment processing as far as a physical terminal is concerned. Processing is faster with an IP-based terminal, and you won’t need to worry about taking up a phone line. Payments are processed over a secured Internet connection that can still be utilized during processing.


Virtual Terminal – Your team can process a payment right at their computer with a virtual terminal. No traditional terminal is required with this option. Instead, payments are processed over an Internet connection via a USB-connected card swipe reader and a user-friendly web interface.


Wireless Terminals – If you would like additional mobility but also want to have a physical terminal in-hand, a wireless terminal is the best choice. You can accept payments anywhere on or off campus without needing an active Internet connection or a dedicated phone line. Payments are processed via cellular communication technologies.


Mobile Processing – Mobile processing will also give you freedom to move anywhere on or off campus. With mobile payment processing, the user securely completes the transaction right through an app on their mobile phone, as well as the card swipe reader.
