Here are a few other terms that may pop up in your research for a mobile credit card processing credit card reader:

Card reader: A device used to access information from the magnetic stripe of a plastic payment card. Information contained on the stripe is necessary for processing transactions.

POS Terminal: An electronic device placed at the point of sale. The terminal connects to a system via telecommunication lines and is designed to authorize, record and forward sales transactions by electronic means.

Wireless Terminal: A machine that has capability to processing transactions over a wireless network, similar to a cell phone (like PayAnywhere Mobile.)

Authorization: Approval by, or on behalf of, the card Issuer to validate a transaction for a merchant or another affiliate bank. An authorization confirms that a cardholder has sufficient funds available to cover the pending transaction at the time the authorization is requested. In some situations, it holds these funds to cover this transaction. The approval code data must be attached to the transaction data for the transaction to complete all steps of the process.

Card Member Agreement: Provides the terms and conditions of a payment card account. Federal law requires a consumer disclosure in this Agreement. It also represents a binding agreement between Card Issuers and their customers. Must include annual percentage rate, monthly minimum payment formula, annual fees and dispute resolution processes. Changes in the cardholder agreement can be made, with written notice, at any time by the Issuer. Cardholders have the right to cancel their cards if they do not accept such changes in the term. Existing balance may be paid off under the previous account terms.

Force Transactions: A transaction that's already approved and needs to be keyed into the terminal for processing. (i.e. when voice authorization is used.) In most cases, customer has already left the store. Performed because merchant couldn't complete original authorization, either a referral message response was received from the original transaction or a temporary interruption of service and merchant obtained voice authorization. This allows the merchant to include the sale so it can be settled as part of the settlement batch.

Merchant agreement: The written agreement between a merchant and a bank that contains respective rights, duties and warranties, and obligations for participation in the MasterCard and VISA program; with respect to acceptance of the bank card and matters related to the bank card activity.
