Expert Contributors:

The Ingenico iCT220 and iCT220 CL card processing terminals are full-featured credit card terminals designed for quick and secure transactions. The iCT220 series is PCI compliant, and runs on the secure Telium 2 operating system.

The Ingenico iCT220 and iCT220 CL allows merchants to process almost all types of cards, including traditional magnetic stripe, EMV chip and PIN, and NFC/contactless for Apple Pay and Google Wallet transactions. (Contactless payments are avialable when using the iCT220 CL terminal.) 

The terminal also integrates easily with the iPP220 PIN pad for secure customer PIN-based debit transactions.

The Ingenico iCT220 is sold in the United States and Canada, but the iCT220 CL (contactless version) is not currently certified for Canadian use.

Security
The Ingenico iCT220 series is PCI PTS 2.x and 3.x compliant. The terminals are designed to be tamper resistant, and feature end-to-end encryption to protect cardholder data at every point in the transaction.

Features
The Ingenico iCT220 series boasts a variety of features designed to make accepting payments quick and secure. The terminal offers multiple connection choices, includes a built-in printer for easy receipt printing, and provides a high-contrast, easy-to-read display screen. An optional number pad privacy shield is available for merchants who would like to shield the keypad from view of anyone but the user when the keypad is being used.

Connectivity and Communication
The Ingenico iCT220 series utilizes a dial-up modem to connect by default. Merchants can choose optional faster connection methods, including Ethernet or 3G. As a dual/comm terminal, the Ingenico iCT220 and iCT220 CL can be used with high-speed connections or dial-up options. The terminal processes transactions efficiently through either method and boasts quick authorization.

The iCT220 series can connect to existing POS systems using USB, serial, or Ethernet connections for seamless integration with merchants’ existing cash drawer and payment equipment.

Size
The Ingenico iCT220 is a compact terminal at 7.28” L x 2.36” W x 2.48” H and weighs 11.46 ounces without printer paper or cables. (Paper and cables add additional weight.)

Memory
The Ingenico iCT220 comes with 16MB of flash memory and 16MB SDRAM, providing ample memory for most merchants.

You should be able to choose "credit" instead of debit on your terminal screen before you incert the card into the chip reader. It will run as a credit card then.

TSYS can process the new MasterCards, but you will need to check with your current processor in order to see if they are able to process the new credit cards that have new numbers compared to the legacy card brand numbers.

Unfortunately, it cannot connect directly to QuickBooks. For that, you would most likely need a POS system rather than a countertop terminal. You can read more in this article on QuickBooks integration.

No, as of 2017 the iCT220 is not obsolete. In fact, it comes in two versions that accept newer payment methods like EMV chip cards and contactless payments like Apple Pay.
