Can a Cash Register take credit cards without a terminal

Yes if you have a high quality SAM4s Cash Register or a Sharp Cash Register then you can add a Datacap device to it and turn your cash register into a credit card terminal.

After you add a Datacap to a SAM4s cash register or Sharp Cash Register it makes credit card transactions  more secure, faster, and with fewer errors. The Datacap also will allow your cash register to accept your own private label Gift Card program which is Money in the Bank!

I’m only aware of one product that allow cash registers to become credit card terminals and that is the Datacap devices. If someone tells you your cash register can interface to a standalone credit card terminal they do not know what they are talking about.

SAM4s SPS-520F, SPS-520R, SPS-530R, and SPS-530F are the best cash register terminals on the market today!

Yes that is a bold statement but take a look for yourself and I think you will become a big fan too. My company has been in the Cash Register Business for over 30 years and we have never sold such an incredible machine as the SAM4s SPS-500 series of cash registers.

The SPS-500 series is made up of 4 models The SAM4s SPS-520FT or also known as the SPS-520F and the SAM4s SPS-530RT or also known as the SAM4s SPS-530R  The first difference between the models is that the 520X has both a receipt and journal printer and the 530X has only a single 3 1/8" inch receipt tape. Next difference in the models is 5XXFT or 5XXF has a flat keyboard suitable for restaurants and the 5XXRT or 5XXR has raised keys designed to be used in a retail application.

All of them are the same machine after you get past the printers and/or keyboard styles. Any of them can interface to Credit Card payments, Gift Card Payments, computer interface, bar code scanner, kitchen printer, DVR and even more.

One of the features we like the most on the SAM4s SPS-500 series is the fact the options are affordable and plentiful. As an example the memory card can be added for only $75.00 and can be done after the fact. The SAM4s SPS-500 series terminals also feature a USB port, keyboard port, and multiple serial ports. This allows you to back up the cash register program to a thumb drive and keep for yourself in case of failure.

This register system truly is a hybrid system between a POS system and cash register!
