Verifone VX 680
The Verifone VX 680 is a small, portable payment device designed to help merchants accept payments anywhere, including at tableside dining businesses, or while making deliveries. The terminal offers wireless connectivity through GPRS, Wifi, or 3G and is lightweight for easy carrying. The terminal also has a power save mode, to help lengthen the battery life while away from the charger.
The VX 680 can accept a wide range of payments, including newer technologies such as NFC mobile wallets and EMV chip cards. For customers with traditional cards, the VX 680 accepts magnetic strip credit cards, and PIN debit using an internal PIN pad.
In addition to accepting payments, merchants can also process voids and refunds. For times when a connection isn’t available or goes down, the VX 680 offers an offline mode, also known as store and forward. In offline mode, merchants can accept payments, and they will be held for authorization until a connection is available. Once transactions are uploaded for approval, authorization can occur.
The Verifone VX 680 also offers transaction reconciliation directly from the terminal. After reconciling, merchants can print a reconciliation report and clear the daily transactions out of the system. Merchants must be in online mode to use the reconcile function. If there are any offline transactions that haven’t been processed, merchants will be prompted to upload the transactions for authorization before using the reconcile function.
The VX 680 offers a high level of security and features end-to-end encryption. Additionally, the terminal is PCI PED 2.0 and PCI PTS 3.0 approved.
