Payment Terminals also for Small Retailers

20.06.2014

Smaller, more accessible and cheaper. New payment terminals offer a competitive advantage to small retailers with a simple connection via a mobile phone.

In addition to standard versions of payment terminals new, simpler versions are making their way to Slovakia. Thanks to a Bluetooth connection to a mobile phone or a tablet with data services, a payment terminal becomes a smaller and lighter device facilitating payments verified by Chip & PIN, which can be used anywhere and anytime. The transaction fee is set individually.


Main benefits for small retailers:

  • a cheaper alternative to a standard payment terminal
  • smaller in size
  • more convenient to use with simple operation
  • suitable for taxi services, courier services, insurance brokers, craftsmen, hairdressers, beauty salons, and doctors - particularly dentists - and others because of its portability
  • compliance with international security standards


Tatra banka is currently launching the pilot phase. The actual sale and implementation is planned to start at the end of 2014. Terminals connected with Android phones will be available in the pilot phase and versions for iPhone will be added later. Commercial operation of these terminals will also offer the option of contactless payments.
