    Do you have hard data for which machines are the quickest? That is the single most important feature for my business by far. Customer wait time is killing me.

      Hi Ammon!

      It’s pretty hard to judge speed of transactions and, not surprisingly, every company boasts about their speed. The more modern the system is, the faster it’s likely to be but I’d suggest narrowing it down to a few top choices and utilizing a free trial to test the speed. But the most important factor is going to be having a fast and reliable internet connection.

              Hey there Ukrido!

              Yes, you can get them cheaper through a third party, but there are benefits to buying directly from your merchant services provider. You can read a bit about this in our post: “Need a Credit Card Machine For Your Small Business? Don’t Lease!
