CenPOS, an innovative payment processing platform and gateway, now supports Ingenico Telium based terminals. The new Telium line replaces the popular Ingenico i3070 and i65xx, including the i6580, which are are approaching their end of life cycle. The Telium based terminals support various forms of multimedia and have a vibrant display that can be used for flashing advertisements and other forms of messaging at the point of sale.
Looking forward to future payment acceptance methods, including NFC, the Telium series supports:
- Smart card reader
- Magnetic card reader
- Contactless reader
CenPOS Supported Telium terminals:
The i6560 and i6580 are all-in-one terminals. The pin pad is built into the device. The pin pad is a separate device for this new solution. There are pro’s and con’s to the two piece, but in a busy retail environment, the benefits outweigh a single piece by far.
- Every retailer can probably recall a time where their terminal pin encryption was blown due to power surge or other reasons. Because the injection can only be completed at an approved secure facility, this meant sending out their entire unit for a period of time for repair. That’s an expensive asset to have out of commission. Now merchants can simply send the pin pad out for repair.
- When a merchant changes payment processors, they need a different pin injection. The two piece solution enables merchants to send out the pin pads for injection without shutting down operations, providing more long term flexibility.
3D Merchant Services provides terminals at wholesale prices to all CenPOS clients.
