EMV Card Swipe/Dip/Tap Support for Credit Card Transactions, uses Wi-Fi for ease of mobility.
The PAX S920 and Q30 ship with a certified EMV app for BookingCenter and our processor partners: Global Integrated, TSYS, Vital, and VisaNet. The S920 is a proven ‘work horse’ and the Q30 is the top-of-the-line device for lodging from PAX. Both support everything: swipe/tap/dip and works via ethernet or wi-fi for mobility. Retail costs: ~$400.
EMV Card Swipe/Dip/Tap Support for Credit Card Transactions, requires Ethernet Cable for connectivity.
The PAX S300 is a certified EMV device for BookingCenter and our processor partners: Global Integrated, TSYS, Vital, and VisaNet. The S300 supports tap (NFC/ApplePay/GooglePay), dip, and swipe. We recommend this device for Kiosks, as it reduces issue with power and/or connectivity once established with your Kiosk(s). If you run your MyPMS business wireless, then this device can work, though it must be on the same ‘sub net’ as the wireless devices on your Local Area network (LAN). This device require an ethernet cable. Retail cost: ~$300-500.
Card Swiper for Credit Card and/or Debit Card (non-EMV)
The IDT card swiper reads data as keyboard entry wherever the cursor is positioned. The card data (and magnetic swipe data) is then parsed by BookingCenter and placed into the correct fields in the Receipts screen of BookingCenter. Retail cost: ~$140 (free 2nd day FedEx to US).
We recommend Epson POS products. The printer is a workhorse and can’t be beat for price/performance. Comes with the serial interface, necessary cables, and 1 roll of paper and a print cartridge.
A case of printer paper will cost ~$120 and an extra box of 12 ribbons is ~$100. One roll of paper and ribbon is usually included with each purchase.
(this is what prints those nice yellow/white receipts for customers to sign)
Receipt Printers : Dot matrix
Receipt Printers : Thermal
If you use a standard receipt printer, it emits the pulse to the cash drawer to open at the conclusion of a transaction. Plastic cash drawers are decent but not recommended if the computer will be placed on top. For heavier needs, use a steel or aluminum cash drawer.
These machines will print bar codes directly from BookingCenter – so that each Inventory Item can be printed as a computer-readable bar code that can be scanned in to facilitate data entry for uses such as a gift shop or a restaurant. BookingCenter supports all EAN and Code 39 type coding schemes.
