What is the Poynt Smart Terminal?
The Poynt Smart Terminal is a future-proof payment terminal with the limitless versatility of a mobile device, all at an affordable price. Built to meet the highest PCI and EMV security requirements, the Poynt Smart Terminal runs PoyntOS. This allows developers to create management technology and tool for your business without having to pay for any additional hardware.
Mobile and Convenient
The terminal is a highly mobile system. Move around your store, take orders from customers waiting in line, take curbside pickup payments and you can even take it with you to do inventory in the storage room. Thanks to its 3G/4G modem, you can also bring it on deliveries or the farmer’s market. You can charge your system by placing it on it’s dock or through the micro USB connection located on the side of the device or resting it on the dock.
There are numerous Poynt applications that come installed out of the box: Terminal, Register, Manual Entry, Settlement, and Help. Access monitoring and analytics tools from the terminal, the Poynt website, Android, and iPhones. Partnering developers also offer a great number of applications. Paired with the power of the terminal, development of apps will continue in growth.
Accept All Forms of Payment
Payment types are constantly changing. With the Poynt Smart Terminal, you’ll never have to worry about turning down a customer based on how they want to pay. Whether it’s EMV cards, gift cards or good old cash, you will have the means to run any card without issue.
Modern Alternative Payments
QR codes can be used for a variety of things including coupons, payments and item identifiers. The Smart Terminal can scan QR codes just like any other barcode. Thanks to the increased usage of NFC payments, the Smart Terminal takes all NFC payments including Apple Pay and Android Pay. Bluetooth payments enable a phone to securely and wirelessly communicate with the payment terminal. A nice advantage of Bluetooth is that the customer can pay from their phone while sitting at a table across the room or even while standing in line.
Integration and Flexibility
The Smart Terminal was built with the ability to integrate with pre-existing cash registers, cash drawers, scales, ticket printers, scanners, and other peripherals. Not all equipment has been tested and confirmed, but with the PoyntOS on the open Android platform, there is a growing list of accessories that have been certified to work with the Poynt Smart Terminal.
Secured and Reliable
The Poynt Smart Terminal has a processor dedicated completely to the security of payment information that ensures nothing leaves without being encrypted. The terminal uses end-to-end encryption powered by PCI-approved crypto algorithms to transmit all sensitive payment information.
