The latest technology in PDQ machines is speeding up transaction times and offering customers greater flexibility in how they choose to pay. Contactless payments are now a popular way for customers to pay for items under £20 by simply tapping enabled payment cards or mobile phones over terminals equipped with a reader. Software and downloadable apps are now also making it possible for businesses to turn their laptops, tablets and mobile phones into virtual payment terminals that work over the Internet. Smartphones have also become card payment terminals. A smart card reader is a hand-held device which can read information from debit or credit cards. Smart card readers usually link to a computer via a USB connection, but a number of new computers are now designed with built-in terminals.
