A leader in retail payment solutions around the world, Datecs Ltd. was formed in 1990 and has gained a reputation for innovation and reliability. While at first involved in software development and other high-tech areas of interest, Datecs soon found itself working on map digitalization projects and developing software to make the task easier. However, soon the company began to focus exclusively on retail payment devices such as electronic cash registers and other products. As technology moved toward more sophisticated payment solutions for businesses, Datecs began its quest to develop a credit card terminal that combined the benefits of current technology with customer convenience.
The smallest PIN pad on the market today, the PPAD1 is compact and lightweight, which makes it very easy to take on location directly to one’s customers. Ergonomically designed to easily fit in the palm of the hand, it has large, colored control keys that offer many advantages. In addition to giving customers an easy to use format, the keys also make training new employees much simpler than before and help to reduce technical support requests.
Features and Benefits
Despite its small size, the PPAD1 has been loaded with features. With a very visible display, it’s capable of working in several different languages. Working with all forms of payment including Chip and PIN, EMV, magnetic stripe and even contactless cards, it can also be adapted to be used for Smart Cards as well. For extra convenience, it can be connected to a Bluetooth device such as the Datecs DDP-250 mobile printer. Compatible with iPhone 5, 5S, iPod4 and iPod5, the PPAD1 has a touch-capacitive keyboard with 10 numeric keys and three function keys, making it a very easy to use credit card machine. In many ways resembling a smartphone, this credit card terminal has proven to be very popular for use at festivals, fairs and other events where convenience and reliability are essential.
Providing merchants with a credit card machine unlike any they have previously used, Datecs has made the PPAD1 to be not only functional, but also reliable and easy to use. When on location, merchants need a credit card terminal that makes the payment process as easy as possible. Powered through a mini USB or a single or 5-station charger, the PPAD1 virtually guarantees to be reliable and accurate both at a place of business or on location elsewhere.
