A Processing Data Quickly (PDQ) device is a machine used by merchants to accept non-cash payments from customers. These devices are also referred to as Chip & Pin machines, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, and credit card payment terminals.
There are a several different types of card machine devices that we supply:
Desktop/ Countertop PDQ Machines
These machines provide secure chip and pin transactions at a fixed location. They are normally used in face to face environments at the retail point of sale.
Countertop PDQ machines are physically attached to the POS system and require either a phone line or internet connection.
Portable PDQ Machines
Portable or moveable PDQ machines connect to a base station via Bluetooth or WiFi and are powered by a battery. This allows you to take payments away from the base station.
Portable machines are most often used by bars and restaurants so staff can take payment from a customer at their table.
Mobile PDQ Machines
A mobile PDQ machine uses the mobile telephone network (GPRS or GSM) to stay connected with a fixed business location. In theory, this means you can use a mobile PDQ machine to take payment anywhere. However, you are reliant on a mobile phone signal.
Mobile PDQ machines are most commonly used by businesses where payment is taken off premises, for example, the pool area of a hotel or sole tradesmen.
