What types of card reading are supported by PIN Pads?
- Cards with magnetic stripe
- EMV chip cards: Many PIN Pads support EMV chip cards (Europay, MasterCard, Visa). These cards have an embedded chip that provides an additional layer of security and authentication.
- Contactless reading: Some PIN Pads are compatible with proximity cards, such as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) cards. These cards allow contactless transactions, which is especially useful in fast-pay environments.
- Smart cards: PIN Pads can support smart cards, which are cards with embedded microprocessors. These cards are used in advanced applications, such as secure identification systems and access to services.
It is important to check the specifications of the specific PIN Pad you are considering to ensure that it is compatible with the types of cards you want to accept in your business.
How to connect PIN Pads to the POS?
