VeriFone Systems today announced its first handheld EMV-capable payment terminal featuring Bluetooth, 3G radio and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Offering fast transactions and flexible payment capabilities, the VeriFone terminal’s size, design and multiple connection capabilities address merchants’ mobile point of sale (mPOS) demands in North America, Australia and parts of Asia, where 3G connectivity is increasingly required for payment device acceptance.
The VX 690’s Bluetooth, 3G radio and Wi-Fi provides fast, wireless payment convenience as well as fewer dropped transactions in virtually every type of merchant environment.
Dual SIM functionality enables the terminal to connect to different networks to keep transactions moving, while built-in GPS allows merchants to track the location of every transaction, providing greater visibility into operations and inventory across multiple stores.
The terminal is PCI PTS 3.0 compliant and features built-in security protection that includes end-to-end encryption to protect data at every point of the transaction.
