Solutions for Payment Processing Hardware & Accessories
At the center of any digital payment processing software is a good point-of-sale (POS) system. In the olden days, a POS system was a simple cash register. Eventually, those cash registers turned into electric registers that could do basic computing; which later evolved into the modern-style Cloud POS System that we have grown accustomed to seeing. Typically, a standard POS is a tablet loaded with software and a device to swipe credit cards. On this page, we will take a brief look at the hardware and accessory options currently available for Sky Systemz merchants.
Sky Systemz’ most popular option for a physical POS is an iPad placed on a stand. While Sky currently only stocks iPad POS systems, Android tablets are compatible. This option provides mobility, should you not need a totally stationary device. Tablets from Sky are preloaded with the Sky Systemz app and set up with your personalized account. A limitation to a tablet POS, is that an external card reader is required to process in-person credit card transactions.Purchase Tablet
Coming Q3 2022, is Sky Terminal. Sky Terminal is an all-in-one device that is a handheld POS, or customer facing unit, linked to your tablet and card reader.
Want to use your own device? Of course you can! It’s easy to download the Sky Systemz app from the App Store or Google Play Store for a tablet or mobile phone. However, Sky cannot guarantee the functionality of your personal, mobile devices. We have a list of tested and approved mobile devices , if you would like to check your existing equipment’s compatibility. Laptop and desktop users are able to log into our Web POS platform which works on most browsers and devices. The only drawback to using your own device is that Sky cannot troubleshoot personal devices if the issue is determined to not be directly related to the Sky Systemz app.
Card readers are credit card swipes that connect to your POS, mobile device or computer through WiFi, Bluetooth or wired connection. Sky currently has multiple options for card readers ranging from pocket-sized portable devices for when you are in the field or a more traditional stationary device. Prices range from $100 - $400, based on model and functionality.Purchase Reader
