A wireless POS terminal (Point of Sale) is a digital device employed to process card payments in banks, retail stores, museums, metro stations, pharmacies and restaurants. It is bifurcated into software and hardware solutions. The software solution consists of asset management, content management and configuration solutions. Whereas, the hardware category includes workstation, payment terminals like smartphones and tablets allied with credit or debit card readers, and accessories including monitors, barcode scanners, receipt printers and cash drawers. The POS process generally begins with the scanning of a user’s information provided by their debit, credit or prepaid card. Following this, the terminal verifies whether the available amount is sufficient to complete the transaction from the user’s bank account. The transaction takes place after confirmation and the terminal stores a note of the transfer and acknowledges it with a receipt.
