Hypercom Equinox T4210 Review

Credit Card Machines

The Hypercom Equinox T4210 is a reliable and affordable credit card terminal featuring an ARM9 processor for fast transactions. The terminal can accept credit cards, EBT cards, and debit cards, including PIN-based debit.

The small size makes it convenient to pass to customers for entering PINs, eliminating the need for an external PIN pad. You can also take advantage of connections for optional peripherals, such as check imagers, EMV readers, and NFC readers, ensuring that you can accept almost any payment type that your customer uses. Customers also have the ability to add a tip for businesses that accept gratuities.

The Hypercom Equinox T4210 is multiple-application ready, allowing you to load modules for value-added applications, including gift cards, loyalty cards, currency conversion, and custom applications. The terminal allows as many applications as there is space in the memory.

In addition to accepting payments, you can process refunds and voids, print duplicate receipts, settle batches, and more. An offline mode allows you to accept payments when the terminal can’t connect to the processor. In offline mode, payments can be accepted as an authorization only, and will be processed when a connection is available.

The T4210 also provides a suite of reports, including audits, summaries by card type, cashier or server reports, tips reports, open tabs, history, and more.

The terminal is rugged, designed to withstand the tough requirements of retail environments. The Hypercom T4210 includes a standard 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. Extended warranties may be available for an additional charge.
