Many merchant account providers will also supply your card payment terminals and other POS hardware as part of your agreement. This combined package can work out much cheaper than leasing a terminal from another source, as well as saving you time dealing with a separate supplier. Remember to shop around for the best deal to suit your needs and that you may need to go through the application process before you can get an accurate quote from a card machine supplier.
