Chip n Pin Tills
We are not aware of any cash registers
that are able to link directly to a chip and pin machine for processing
You can't just plug any old till
into a card processing terminal. (Not in the UK) anyway
The Cash Register terminal would need to have data communication
capabilities and would need have been certified as being able to
securely send data to other devices with minimal risk of fraud.
Card processing companies will link only with EPOS systems has that
meet the required standards, this is a very expensive process for
software and hardware companies to achieve this capability.
It is possible to achieve this with high value integrated EPoS systems
that have been approved by certain banks and card payment processing
agencies, although the cost of such systems, which can be anything
between £1,500 and £3,000 is likely prohibitive to most
small independent outlets. In most cases your merchant account will
need to be set-up by the company that provides the till system,
as it's most likely that your existing provider won't be compatible
the the EPOS system that you may wish to buy.
SO ! Get back to work and don't waste
any more time looking. If it was do-able, we would be selling it
