Ingenico iCT250 Q&A

Can this unit safely process credit cards even when it is connected to a compromised network? How safe is it against fraudsters sniffing the wire and stealing credit card info as it is being transmitted?

This device can work in those situations. To fully secure the transactions, you would need to have the device enabled with a p2p encryption technology in order to limit the opportunity for card data to be stolen through your network or terminal transmissions. Our encryption system is call Voltage.

It is possible for sales to be make when the internet is down if your merchant account provider supports "Store and Forward" transactions on the ICT250.  You would have to reach out to your current merchant acccount provider to determine their compatibility.

The ICT series products do support "Tip after Sale" on most processing platforms.  It is best to check with your current merchant account provider to see if they support this feature.
