First Data FD-20 Contactless Reader


The First Data™ FD-20 Contactless Reader offers an ideal solution for retailers who attract and retain customers by how quickly they process transactions. More and more, consumers trade traditional magnetic stripe cards for contactless payments.  These transactions are often faster than cash or traditional magnetic stripe credit cards, eliminate the need to swipe the card, and in many instances, also, eliminate the need to sign a receipt.

Product Description

First Data™ FD-20 Contactless Reader

The First Data FD-20 Contactless Reader easily connects via a USB port to any of the terminals in the First Data proprietary line. It does not require a separate power supply and is field upgradeable to accept new payment types and enhancements as they become available in the future. When a customer holds a contactless equipped card in front of the FD-20 reader, the card is recognized and the transaction is initiated.  Lights and audible signals let the customer and the merchant know when the process is successful. The merchant enters the amount of the sale and delivers a receipt, often with no signature required. The customer maintains possession of the card at all times.

Merchants are looking for ways to capitalize on the rapid growth of PIN based transactions at the point-of sale (POS) while allowing customers to settle in their preferred payment type. They also want to offer rapid payment processing to reduce customer wait times while maintaining a high level of security.

The First Data FD-20 Contactless Reader processes electronic payments using the latest technology. The customer simply waves or taps their card in front of an FD-20 reader that is connected to a POS terminal, and the transaction is initiated. By adding the FD-20 reader to an existing First Data proprietary terminal, merchants can support the acceptance of contactless cards, key fobs and other specially equipped devices, with the same end result and security of a standard card swiped transaction. This technology can significantly increase transaction speed and is ideal for businesses with a high volume of low dollar transactions.
