Allow Wireless Terminal Solutions to support your business ahead of your event and to guide you through the step by step process needed to get you up and running and securing card payments, eliminating the need to take cash and cheques to the bank. With the introduction of contactless technology, the popularity for customers looking to pay by debit and credit card is growing year on year.

Making the most from every sale

Wireless Terminal Solutions’ card processing machines are contactless enabled, eliminating lengthy queues and reducing transaction times. It takes a matter of seconds for the lights on the card machines to illuminate, confirming that the transaction has been approved. There is no need for the traditional Chip & PIN, nor the need for signatures. Using contactless payments is a sure fire way to improve customer service and help eliminate lengthy queues during peak periods.

In today’s fast paced event industry, some customers will favour different types of payment, and if your business accepts card payments as an option, you are potentially opening the door to a new client base. More and more people are looking to pay by card, and the amount of people paying by cash is dropping year on year with many of the tech savvy younger generation preferring to pay by card or apps.

What are the advantages of accepting card payments at an event?

One of the key aspects to accepting cards at events is also the added security. Having little cash onsite has its advantages, and card payments can help enormously with this. Not only are the risks on-site such as theft, damage or accidental loss to cash stocks eliminated, but elements such as trips to make deposits to banks can be taken out of the equation freeing up more time for you and your colleagues to focus on the business and the event itself.

What Card terminals work best for an exhibition?

Our exhibition and event clients trust us to provide them with the right types of credit card machines each time and every time, and this is due to the unrivalled reliability of the credit card machine devices we supply in comparison to our competitors.
