Payment Terminals Overview

Payment Terminals for Restaurant, Retail, and Transportation

Payment terminals are becoming increasingly popular, not only at gas pumps, ATMs, and vending machines, but also at airport self-service kiosks, parking lots, pay-at-the-table stations (and fast food kiosks), public transit, and many other everyday situations. Whether you’re at the vending machine grabbing a snack or at the unattended kiosk paying for a parking ticket, at one point or another, you have interacted with a payment terminal and have likely enjoyed the swift checkout experience.

Many unique requirements apply to unattended payment terminals, such as security, durability, and reliability. Also, weather resistance, constraints involving electrical power, and infrequent maintenance are factors to consider when using these solutions in the outdoor environment.

The unusual demands of unattended operation have special implications for the design of card readers. ID TECH’s VP5300, VP5300 NFC Antenna, and SmartPIN L100 PIN pad have been designed with the rigors of unattended operation in mind.

Payment Terminals for Gas Pumps, Parking, ATMs, and Vending Machines

Unattended payment solutions, involving (for example) kiosks, gas pumps, parking meters, ATMs, and vending machines, typically operate under the following circumstances:

  • Locations with limited security, or poor law enforcement coverage, resulting in high vulnerability to vandalism and tampering
  • Direct exposure to elements of weather (including moisture and temperature extremes)
  • Located where power availability is poor, often requiring alternative sources of power, such as solar panels and batteries
  • Longer-term deployment cycles, with infrequent maintenance and the need for reliable, future-proofed hardware

Customized Payment Terminals for Your Needs

To succeed in such circumstances, specially designed hardware is essential. It’s simply not feasible to re-purpose “retail-oriented” payment devices to unattended scenarios.

ID TECH, with 30 years of experience (and customers on all continents), specializes in delivering exactly the kinds of solutions required for success in unattended payment terminal acceptance.
