CardPointe Virtual Terminal – Using the IDTech USB Card Reader
The CardPointe Virtual Terminal is a browser-based point-of-sale system that comes complimentary with a CardPointe account.
It allows businesses to accept both card-present and card-not-present transactions or virtual payments, in-person or over-the-phone.
The CardPointe Virtual Terminal is secured with our patented tokenization and can be paired with devices protected by our PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE).
This video shows you how to set up the USB reader and configure the Virtual terminal to accept swiped transaction.
