FACTORS THAT DETERMINE PHARMACY CREDIT CARD
In the recent time, everyone knows about
the credit card terminals but people
call it swipe machines. The drastic
development of the economy is fully
dependent upon the internet technology.
We all have made payments through our
credit or debit card in some places like
shopping malls, cafeterias, music shops,
etc. The machine in which the credit
card is swiped against to make payments
is called a credit card terminal.
There are also other factors that make
credit card terminals effective in its
usage. The other factors that determine
credit card terminals are the printer,
modem, a memory card and power supply.
These terminals are used to process
credit cards and not any other gift
cards or others. To make the proper use
of the card terminal, the above
mentioned elements are very important.
Let us assume that a credit card
terminal does not work without a power
supply. In the same manner, a printer is
needed to print the transaction record,
and a memory card is used for storing
the transaction files and the modem is
required to connect to the internet
server for completing the transaction.
Therefore all these elements are needed
in the working of credit card terminals.
Some of the credit card terminals are
battery operated. In such cases, a power
supply is not needed. This type of a
card terminal can be taken anywhere as a
mobile device. An internet connection is
very important for using all credit card
terminals. It is required because it has
to connect to the bank whether the
present user is authorised or not. The
card terminal connects to the bank’s
server whichever the card belong to
using the internet.
After a successful transaction or
payment made through the credit card
terminal, a printed record of the
transaction is printed out. For this, a
printer is attached to the card terminal
for printing out the details. A copy of
the printed matter is handed to the
customer and the other copy should be
signed by the customer and returned to
the bank for a bank record.
A memory card is required to make a card
terminal useful as well as effective.
These memory cards are used for storing
each transaction records. It works as a
back up of every transaction. The memory
card containing data are read as well as
calculated and kept for the future
calculation. It is an important element
that makes a credit card terminal
effective as well as there is less
chance of the data being distorted. A
printed record or the details generated
out after each of the transaction can be
torn or even be lost. Some of the credit
card terminals come with pre-fitted
printers and memory cards but normally
it has to be fitted manually.
For each of the transaction processed,
the banks get a paid commission.
Therefore the above mentioned factors
make the use of a card terminal very
effective in the business strategy.
