Virtual terminals have become more and more common through the advancements in modern-day technology. Adding yet another way for companies to conduct business quickly and conveniently. So, what is a virtual terminal?
A virtual terminal is just like it sounds; it's a web-based interface that enables business owners to accept card payments online. Instead of paying at a physical terminal in-person with a card, the virtual terminal allows the customer to pay online by logging onto a website.
Almost any type of business can benefit from incorporating a virtual terminal. Especially those who conduct most of their business over the phone, submit electronic invoices, or have monthly recurring memberships or services.
Businesses that would benefit from virtual terminals:
- Professional services, such as accounting, medicinal, legal
- Businesses that primarily conduct business over the phone or by mail
- Food delivery services
- Service related companies such as lawn care or pet grooming
- Recurring monthly payments for a gym membership, subscriptions, etc.
The bottom line is, if you want a convenient and secure way to boost sales for your business, a virtual terminal is a great option for you!
