|Mobile payment terminals, using the mobile phone networks to communicate payment transactions to the banks, are ideal for mobile businesses or those that do not have easy access to wired broadband services such as:|
- Delivery services
- Event catering
Mobile payment terminals enable fast, secure payment processing for businesses without access to reliable broadband, without resorting to slow, old fashioned dialup terminals.
Mobile terminals include GPRS service within the terminal.
Handheld point of sale terminals have been hugely sucessful in America and Asia and are rapidly gaining ground in Europe.
Results of a survey by Motorola in late 2009 found that 82% of decision makers reported an increased interest in mobile technology. 60% of those surveyed claimed they had gained an edge over their competitors as a result of using mobile technology.
