How does a wireless card terminal function?

Remote wireless payment terminals are a popular option for mobile businesses that provide a product or service on the move or at a customer’s house.  Wireless card terminals transmit the card data using cellular or satellite networks directly from the handset, so there is no need for a static hub or cash desk.
